Fight Back with Joy Women's Book Study

IMG_0974.jpg

Date: Sunday, September 24 - October 29
Time: 8am-9:30am
Place: 6120 Day Long Lane, Clarksville, MD 21029 backyard
Cost: $17 for the workbook


Learn to practice joy, defiant joy. Sooner or later, we find ourselves on the battlefield of life and struggle to know how to respond. But God says, "Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's" (2 Chronicles 20:15). On that fateful day, King Jehoshaphat and his army marched forward rejoicing. Though we can choose from many weapons, God wants to empower us to fight back with joy. Join Margaret Feinberg for this 6-session Bible study that will help you embrace a life that's richer and fuller than you've ever known before—a life radiant with joy.

Watch a video about the book at http://bcove.me/9b237m3h.
