Join me in Finding the Quiet . . .

I'm so excited to announce the upcoming launch of Finding the Quiet - a FREE inspirational class being offered by my amazing and talented friend Jeanne Oliver (and one for which I was so honored to be a part of).


Join over 20 men and women as we share in a four week study all about finding the quiet in each day and hearing the voice of God.

The world can be so loud and we desperately need quiet. We need time to think, process, pray, worship, plan, dream, forgive, heal and find direction.  To just be still.   Do we give ourselves this time to be quiet and truly listen to the voice of the Lord?  Are you striving and trying to navigate life in your own strength? Are you tired?  Do you know that the Lord pursues you?  Do you know that he wants to carry your burdens? Do you know that he deeply longs to communicate with you and have a relationship with you?  Are you ready to find the quiet and listen to his voice?

If you don't make intentional time with the Lord each day will it happen?  Your walk with the Lord is a relationship and relationships only grow when we make time for each other.  Each week you will hear Listening stories from the men and women in this study.  We will be sharing our own journeys of listening and intentionally finding the quiet.


Instructions to join class:
