Summer Online Ladies Bible Study
Hoodwinked: Ten Myths Moms Believe and Why We All Need to Knock It Off by Karen Ehman
Facilitated by: Danielle Lynn
Dates: June 25 – August 6, 2016
Description: Today’s wives and mothers have been hoodwinked; convinced that serving their family is a subservient and antiquated role. Because of culture, family, friends, or lack of biblical teaching, many moms miss how valuable and powerful their calling really is. Some have bought into the pressure to be “Supermom.” Others have believed the myth that they can “do it all” and do it perfectly. This six-session video-based online study, facilitated by Danielle Lynn, will encourage and inspire women to embrace their roles as mothers wholeheartedly yet realistically, whether they work outside the home, have a home business, or are stay-at-home moms. Mothers will find a fresh new vision for an age-old calling as they tackle the challenges and embrace the blessings of motherhood.
