Reclaim peace and joy, knowing God has not forgotten you.

Sometimes life throws unexpected challenges. In just a single day we might find ourselves tossed into a major storm or personal crisis. Or we might be in a place of longsuffering, as author Xochitl Dixon shares in this beautiful devotional collection of stories.

There are seasons in life when God calls us to synchronize our walk with His pace. We can’t rush the process or hide from this, as we learn to inhale and exhale with each step. This remarkable testimony is shared through each devotion by Ms. Dixon. Beautiful writing from the real life experience of trusting God through chronic illness.

Required Book (not included):

Dixon, Xochitl. Waiting For God: Trusting in God’s Plan and Pace. Discovery House from Our Daily Bread, 2019.

Begin each day with a devotional reading from Waiting For God: Trusting Daily in God’s Plan and Pace by Xochitl Dixon. Just as we crave tea and coffee to start our day, we crave the words of Scripture and Daily Prayers.

After inhaling through a focused Scripture verse, you’ll exhale through a beautifully written prayer from author Xochitl Dixon. Each sentence is a movement on it’s own- like a well-verses worship song. When read together as a prayer piece, the impact is powerful and lingers throughout your day.

Whatever season we’re navigating, in Waiting For God we will find His plan and provision to encourage and transform us.

Join the Bible Cafe™ online Bible study and learn the Biblical truths for weariness and waiting. Let’s ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us!

We can change our mindset and train our minds for endurance

Too often we fail to prepare for our battles. So when challenges, troubles, or opportunities arise, we rapidly become burdened with limiting thoughts of self-doubt, fear, impossibility, and lack. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can train our minds to conquer uncertainty, beat insecurity, and step past the tragedies of yesterday.

Battle Ready is a hands-on scriptural plan that teaches you twelve easy-to-implement, confidence-building mind-sets designed to transform your thoughts and, therefore, your life.

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.

Shame Off You Bible Study by Denise Pass

The truth is in the Bible- see for yourself that God is bigger than your pain, shame, mistakes, and limitations. Break free from this stronghold.

Course Description
Shame Off You Bible Study shares how freedom can be found in choosing to break the cycle of shame by learning from the past, developing healthy thinking patterns, silencing lies, and overcoming the traps of vanity and other people’s opinions.

Shame is an assault on the core of who we are.

It assassinates our character, minimizes our worth, and dashes our hope. Like Adam and Eve, we often hide shame, but hiding never heals it. Left unattended, shame can develop into a crippling reality that paralyzes us. Like an infectious disease, shame impacts everyone . . . but not all shame is bad.

Shame can either be an oppressive and powerful tool of worldly condemnation or a source of conviction that God uses to bring his people back to himself. Having the discernment to know the difference and recognize shame in its many forms can change the course of one’s life.

In a transparently honest style, Denise Pass shares of her experience dealing with shame after learning that her former husband was a sexual offender. Having lived through the aftermath, she leads you into God’s Word where you will see for yourself that God is bigger than your pain, shame, mistakes, and limitations.
