BTFL Made

It's time to find freedom in your physical struggles. It's time to stop the fad diets and cookie cutter exercise programs. It's time to stop listening to what society says you should look like. It's time to listen to who GOD is and who He says you are.  Each week we will have a short effective workout and/or healthy snack prep and study! I will be discussing excerpts from The Body Tithe devotional/study guide. Books are not required for participation as we will not be going through specific days chapters.

Uncom-men

We live in a time and place where words and even facts are continually being challenged and redefined. The result of this is unclear roles for a husband within family life. Without a precise function, this leads to instability and overall lack of leadership within the home. Through this time we will dive in and examine the role of a husband according to God's word. Come join in as we explore the Scriptures and gain a firm grasp on the definition of being a great husband so that we can serve our wives, our children and the world around us!
