Faith in a Fallen World

Session Leader: Danielle Bell

God’s grace has portrayed His supernatural testimony of trust amidst trying times in the life of this session’s leader, Danielle Bell. Whether encountering a medical scare or the countless uncertainties of an adoption process, God has enabled Danielle to find a remarkable faith that has mesmerized and inspired the folks around her.

Her newest journey has been as a foster/adoptive single mom and she’s been “blown away” by all God has taught her through such a broken process – beauty from ashes.

Living from God’s Wisdom Rather than the World’s: A Journey with Jesus

Session Leader: Leeba Curlin

One of Leeba Curlin’s spiritual pursuits is encouraging her children and grandchildren to study the written Word in order to better know God and to be able to face today’s social pressures with God’s truth against the enemy’s lies. In this session, Leeba will be discussing her insights gained through the years in the role of a wife and mother who desired to follow Jesus. This will include a look at what she did that appeared to bear God’s fruit and also what could have been done better or wiser. Leeba states, “Hopefully, we are learners until we see Jesus.”

Leeba Curlin is the wife of Dr. John Curlin, retired OB/GYN of the Jackson Clinic. She and Dr. Curlin are former hosts of American Family Radio. Leeba is the mother to seven grown married children. Along with enjoying them, their spouses and their 31 children, she and her husband divide their times between Humboldt, Tennessee, and Panama where she studies Biblical topics, visits and teaches weekly at the Women’s prison while her husband is involved in a ministry of facilitating listening prayer. Leeba was brought up in a strong Christian home where she trusted Christ as a young girl. Coming to faith at a young age gave her many years to grow in Him and experience his direction and mercies in things like choosing a mate, raising a family, and now trusting Him in the sunset years of life to apply her time to that which God considers wise.

THIS is Stealing your JOY?

Session Leader: Joy Greene

Is your life living up to your expectations? Do you use social media and feel that your life is not as wonderful as your friends’? As women, we often struggle with self-image, wanting others to like us, and not feeling “put together.” We often feel that we do not measure up! When we view our life through the world’s lens, we feel insecure and inadequate. We need a new perspective, God’s perspective. Come to Joy’s session and be empowered by taking a closer look at what is stealing your joy. Gain Biblical truth through this interactive session and learn how to live a life of contentment through Christ! Be encouraged and get your joy back!
