have you ever been stuck in your faith?
I have! The Holy Spirit woke me out of a spiritual slumber about five years ago. At the time, I was busy at home caring for 2 young children (with one more on the way) and truly loving family life, but my faith felt very dry and lifeless. I was doing all the "right things"- reading the Bible, praying, participating in bible studies and small groups, and attending church regularly. But, I felt like I was relearning the same lessons over and over again. I found myself asking, "Lord, is this all there is? Is this the Christian life- you grow into a set of foundational truths and then camp out there forever?" No and no.
I was spiritually stuck, but I wasn't sure how to pull myself out of it. After I struggled in that place for a while, the Lord met me in a very specific way and the message I heard was- "You need to grow in your knowledge of Me through My Word." I started meeting with 2 other women, and all we did was read and wrestle through Scripture. My faith blew wide open at that point and I fell in love with God again.
I eventually realized that many, many women are in the same place I was… stuck in a status quo faith and not much challenging them to more. BECOMING is the resource and inspiration I wish I had all those years ago- to spark a desire to grow in spiritual maturity and ultimately point me back to God and His Word. And, it is the resource our team prays He will now use to invite women to reinvest their hearts and minds in the pursuit of God.
We hope you'll join us on the journey!
