Wednesday Women’s Covenant: UNGLUED by Lysa TerKeurst

September 18 – October 23
10am – Noon in Fellowship Hall

Cost:  $19 for Participant book and study guide

In this Bible study participants learn how to process emotions and resolve conflicts in ways that lead to a much more peaceful life. Lysa admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her “happy” causing her to come emotionally unglued. What do we often do with our raw emotions? We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between. Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Lysa’s answer is yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, she shows you how.

Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to know with confidence how to:

  • Resolve conflict in your important relationships
  • Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended
  • Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication
  • Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between
  • And how to gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control
