Join the Bible Cafe™ as we study Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season by Melissa Spoelstra. This new Bible study is now available on-demand for the monthly and annual Bible Cafe™ members (author videos not included).

Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows.

The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain.

Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed spiritual stamina in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too!

Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season by Melissa Spolestra

Elijah Bible Study for Women

In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy.

Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith.

Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in every season.

The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. You’ll read the lessons at home and join an online discussion forum led by Womens Bible Cafe™

You’ll join us from home, your minivan, or your office.. no need to get dressed up for this Bible study!

It’s Momplicated Bible Study by Debbie Alsdorf

It's Momplicated

Let’s face it: when it comes to mothers and their daughters, things can get a little . . . complicated. Momplicated, you might say.

Course Description
Mother and Daughter relationships are imprints upon our hearts. And so we look at these through the lens of the Bible. During this Bible study about relationships we discover the power of transformation in the strongest of bonds.

The mother-daughter relationship is complicated, rich, beautiful, and sometimes painful.

Whether your relationship with your mom has been wonderful or stressful, redeemed or broken, close or nonexistent, it’s one of your life’s most important and defining connections. Its effects have probably followed you into adulthood.

And yet it can be difficult to fully understand why it is that way. Why can’t we readily identify what needs to be fixed? Why is it so difficult to process the ways in which we’ve been hurt? How can we break the cycle of pain, become healthier, and move forward?

Written from the joint perspective of a family therapist and a women’s ministry leader, It’s Momplicated will show you how God’s love can help heal the wounds of your relational past―encouraging you to have compassion on yourself, offer forgiveness to your mother, and write a new story for your future.

Required Book (not included)

Alsdorf, Debbie and Joan Edwards Kay. It’s Momplicated: Hope and Healing for Imperfect Daughters of Imperfect Mothers. Tyndale Momentum, 2018.

 

When you hear the word mother, what happens? Do you get a rush of love or a flare of anger? Does it conjure a pleasant memory or a painful flashback?

Maybe you feel guilty for even picking up this book. After all, in a lot of ways your mother is great. But for some reason, after talking to her, you are tense and irritable.

The effects of your mother-daughter relationship have probably followed you into adulthood.

If you have conflicting feelings toward mom―or if you wish you could get past some of the baggage that holds you back―this is your book. Combining spiritual disciplines and the best of current therapeutic practice, It’s Momplicated will help you discover

  • How your early connection with your mother may have impacted your sense of self and your other important relationships―and what you can do to break the cycle
  • Why you and your mother have the relationship you have―the underlying reasons that may be contributing to strain and unease
  • Tools and exercises to help you cope with some of the most common effects of a broken relationship, including anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, and trust issues
  • How to be the daughter and mother God wants you to be even if your mom wasn’t who you needed her to be.

It’s never too late to love, never too late to heal, and never too late to trust God to turn the pain in your story into a redemption song. As you read It’s Momplicated, you’ll realize that while God doesn’t promise to fix all your circumstances, He does promise to uphold you and lead you to a healing place of knowing you are truly precious and loved, no matter how your past has affected you.

It’s Momplicated by Debbie Alsdorf and Joan Edwards Kay

This is a HOT topic on generational relationships and how they impact our lives today. Debbie Alsdorf and Joan Edwards Kay discussed Its Momplicated on the Today Show and as Debbie often says, “It’s not about me it’s bigger than that!”

The book gives women courage to address their mother-daughter relationships and ignite healing. It’s never too late to love, never too late to heal, and never too late to trust God to turn the pain in your story into a redemption song.

As you read It’s Momplicated, you’ll realize that while God doesn’t promise to fix all your circumstances, He does promise to uphold you and lead you to a healing place of knowing you are truly precious and loved, no matter how your past has affected you.
