With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you: Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God. Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God honoring ways to process your hurt.

Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.

The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love.

Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence. Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.

Welcoming us into the safety and hope of His grace and His love. And because we have been fully embraced by Him, we can spend our lives held securely by Him and trust all of His ways.

From Bible times to modern times women have struggled with their words: what to say and how to say it. What not to say. When it is best to remain silent. Or what to do when you’ve said something you wish you could now take back. Beyond just a “How not to gossip” study, Karen will teach what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family and strangers will be covered along with the many places we use our words such as in private, in public, online and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves. Unsolicited opinion-slinging, speaking the truth in love, not saying words just to people-please and dealing with our verbal anger are sub-topics that will also be addressed. Each session will feature a different character from the Bible, using them either as an example of someone to emulate or whose verbal actions we should avoid replicating. Sessions include: Sparks, Squabbles, Spats, and Such: Our Words Matter On Filling Gaps and Zipping Lips: Listen to Others, Talk to God Opinion-Slinging and Salty Speech: Assessing Our Digital Tongues Gossip, Flattery, and People-Pleasing: How to Speak the Truth in Love Pause Before You Pounce: On Cultivating Soft Speech As Sweet as Honey: Wonderful Ways to Use Your Words Designed for use with the Keep It Shut Video Study 9780310819417 (sold separately).
