Speaking to women-practical life lessons from the Scripture; also have done a lot of marriage/couple seminar/retreat environments with my husband.
Our life verse is: "Therefore we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him." One slice of being pleasing to God is a passion for women to discover for themselves the joy of being able to understand and apply the Word of God to their everyday life circumstances.
