Standing Strong in a Topsy-Turvy World–Laurie Davies
We’ll take a head-to-toe look at what it takes to serve from a place of strength, looking specifically at our feet (how to plant them), our hands (how to free them up), and our heads (how to establish rest into our rhythm).
*Stand Stronger Serve the Lord without fear in this world gone mad. Drawing from the Psalms, we’ll learn how to plant our feet on the solid rock of Jesus so that we can lead confidently, fearlessly, and effectively in our spheres of ministry influence.
*Live Lighter We’ll free our hands so we can lead from a place of freedom by ditching the baggage God never asked you to carry.
*Rest Deeper Rested leaders are better leaders! Cultivate a rhythm of rest by leaning into surprising truths from God’s word.
