“Running on Empty” or “Beyond Superwoman” ©2016
A woman’s life is filled with the stress of career, family, volunteering and the expectations of others, leaving little time for rest and relaxation. The urgent rules, while the important sits and waits. It is this lifestyle that leads many women down the road to burnout. Is there help for today's woman? In the midst of a world spinning out of control comes God’s call to rest.
Each session is 45 minutes and can be done without the other sessions being included.

How does this woman survive with such demands and expectations on her life? What are the Scriptural principles which God wants us to follow to get through life at such accelerated speeds?

Most of us do not really know the people in our neighborhoods or workplace. We give a courteous wave, or say “hi” but that is the extent of getting to know them. “Beyond the Wave” uses the teaching of Jesus found in Luke 10:1-9 to teach very ordinary people how to go beyond the courteous wave and be used by the Holy Spirit to share the Good News of Jesus and to become his instrument of peace in a broken world.
Four simple principles set forth in Luke 10:1-9 to bring Christ to people living in a broken world.
Session 1 “Shalom” Luke 10:5 - Speak peace
Session 2 “Entering the lives and hearts of people. Luke 10:7-8 - Enter their home. Eat what is set before you.
Session 3 “Watching God Work As We Pray” Luke 10:9a - Heal the sick. Pray.
Session 4 ”Tell them” Luke 10:9b - Tell them – “The kingdom of God is near you.”
I Have Chosen You, Based on John 15:16
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Most people desire to be chosen and esteemed sometime in their life. In a world filled with hurt, disappointment and rejection, there is comfort in knowing the beauty of His undeserving choice of us.
Session1: “God’s Choice of Us” John 15:16
Session 2: “Chosen to Be a Servant” John 13
Session 3: “Chosen to Be a Blessing” Luke 6:27ff

In this session you will learn practical ways of relaying God’s love and his Word to your children through simple everyday life experiences.

It is no secret that church workers experience fatigue, exhaustion, and stress which often leads to burnout. The demands and expectations of others can rob us of serving joyfully in ministry.
Elise Arndt shares from her heart and from God’s Word the answer to combating stress.
