Women’s Morning Bible Study

November 18, 2021

“Join the Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study to dive in to our new book, Me, Myself, and Lies-A Thought Closet Makeover by Jennifer Rothschild.

This book explores the power of self-talk and digs deep to help us deal with the sometimes destructive and unrealistic expectations we place on ourselves. We’ll have a chance to take a look at the things we commonly say to ourselves and use Biblical principals to practice godly, Christ-centered soul-talk.

We’ll be starting the book on Thursday, December 2nd in Luther Hall. We gather to chat starting at 8:30am and begin studying at 9:15am until 10:30am. FREE BABYSITTING IS AVAILABLE!

Order your own book online or contact Lindsay Laas for more information at
