TRUSTING YOUR INSTINCTS WHEN YOUR INSTINCTS DON’T TRUST YOU!
PRESENTATION TOPIC: TRUSTING YOUR INSTINCTS WHEN YOUR INSTINCTS DON’T TRUST YOU!
Saturday Morning Young Ladies Session – Ages 13 – 18
This workshop will deal with the battles young people face. Postmodernism has perpetuated an ideology that there are no absolute truths. Paul says I’m trying to do what’s right, but I have all these challenges. We will ask the question . . . Do you trust your instincts when your instincts don’t trust you? There is war against the spirit and the flesh. But in the midst of the battles (spiritual, physical and emotional) your faith produces freedom in Christ. Young women will learn principles of how to build a firm foundation of faith which produces a reality of things not understood. Winda and Octavia will present powerful tools to use while learning to be your authentic self in a society where you are
challenged to be accepted. Self-Love. Society wants you to fit in but our youth are struggling with being authentic.
