Do you stay busy to avoid deep connections? Do you resist community for fear of being judged? Do you need to reconcile a relationship?
There are messy parts in all of our lives that we would rather not reveal—like strained relationships, sinking finances, and cluttered houses. We keep the doors of our hearts and homes closed for fear of being exposed. But what if we invited others in and experienced the beautiful acceptance and deep connection of Christian community?
Author and speaker Shauna Niequist is passionate about living life in community. In four intimate sessions, she walks through Scripture, challenging women to step out of isolation and fear and pursue relationships rooted in rest, grace, and reconciliation. As you learn the benefits of living an authentic life with others in Christ and watch real-life stories of women who have experienced freedom in meaningful community, you will discover why God designed and delights in relationships.
