NO LONGER I- the study! Coming this fall to a church near you!

So, starting in two weeks, I will be teaching a ladies' Bible study at my church.  The study will take place every Thursday morning from 9:00-11:30, with content derived from my life and from this blog.  I know some of you go to my church, while others of you aren't even in the U.S., but I wanted to give you all this information in case you are local and would like to attend.  The cost is $25.  The study I will be teaching is my own, entitled NO LONGER I.

This is a little blurb I've written about what I will be teaching.

"No Longer I -- Galatians 2:20-21 says "For I have been crucified with Christ and it's no longer I that lives but Christ who lives within me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the son of God who loves me and gave himself for me." Join us this fall as we walk through the scriptures, learning what it means to be Crucified with Christ. We will learn what it means to lay self aside and let Christ live and love through us. We'll discuss practical applications as we work towards becoming the wives, the mothers, the daughters, the sisters, the friends.... the women that God created us to be."

Let me preface the study by saying this- I am no expert.  I am about as far from perfect as one can get.  I've messed up royally time and time again, but I've learned much and am still learning every day.  I know that God is using my story and the stories of those just like me to encourage, teach, and bring hope to others.  I am not a know-it-all (though it may seem this way).  I am just an ordinary girl who is extraordinarily loved by her creator and loves to share this with others so that they, too can experience this!  

I hope you'll join me this fall as we walk through this journey towards living a life crucified with Christ- learning to live, to love in His strength.  

No longer afraid of my calling, 

No longer I,

The Real Life Mom

Bravo Christi! Thank you for embracing your calling. So Godly proud of you! May you be bold to pour out all that God gives you. I'm not available most mornings, so I will be praying for you and the ladies who attend. May God surprise all of you! 'Cause, you know, He loves to surprise us!
