Women’s Retreat 2017

Becoming a Woman of Character

Who are you in the dark?  Character is much more than what others see on the outside.  It has been said that character is who we are when no one is looking, or when there is no one around to judge us or give us a pat on the back.  We will learn about becoming authentic women who are honest, full of integrity, reliable, loyal forgiving, kind and compassionate.  Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.  Romans 12:1-2
