No one lights a lamp, then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.
As little ones, we raised our voices and declared we’d never hide our lights under a bushel, nor would we let Satan ever blow them out. However, as the busyness and trials of life weigh on our adult lives, somehow our lights have dulled and our spirits have turned heavy.
In this topic, join Jessica as she uses the promises of scripture to guide us back to a place where we can shine. Through identifying the bushels that hide our lights, then developing a plan to rid ourselves of earthly fires, Jessica inspires women to look to Jesus and be radiant!
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.
No matter our age or our positions in life, we still find ourselves waiting for a permission slip to live life. As women, we are often trapped by the desire for people’s approval, lacking the wisdom to stand confidently, and kindly, as grown-up women of the Most Holy God.
Using the well-known stories of Genesis, Jessica encourages her audiences to put down their toys and take their place at the exciting grown-up table of faith.
Ephesians 1: 3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
In a world where women are bombarded with messages about their appearances, their roles, and their very existence, it’s difficult to maintain a positive perspective on who we are.
Using Ephesians, Jessica identifies exactly who God says we are. With an excitement that’s contagious, she invites women to live in the joy of seeing themselves through the eyes of Christ.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
In facing hurts from the past, trouble relationships in the present, or uncertainties about the future, women so often choose isolation over forgiveness and freedom.
Using the lives of Rahab, David, and her own personal struggles, Jessica exhorts women to throw off the ties that so often bind, trading them in for the free flowing joy of the cross.
In this interactive workshop, Jessica uses her graduate work in Temperament studies to guide groups through a fun-filled time of discovering the different gifts and talents God has given to your group.
Perfect as an opener to any retreat weekend, or standing on its own, the workshop uses laughter, and even some logic, to help women get to know each other on a deeper level.
If you have another topic in mind, but don’t know where to go with it, Jessica will work with your group to create a memorable event tailored around the subject of your choice.
