RETREAT & CONFERENCE SESSIONS
Women love the idea of a day at the spa to be pampered and made-over from head to toe. In this session, Sharon takes women to God’s spa for the Ultimate Makeover. Many women struggle with feelings of inferiority, insecurity, and inadequacy. However, when they discover who they are, what they have, and where they are in Christ, God transforms them into the confident women He intended all along. Women learn how to see themselves as God sees them, change the way they think, and experience the only makeover with lasting results.
Session One: A Brand New You!
In this session, Sharon begins by describing the unrealistic expectations placed on women today. This comical segue invites women to relax and enjoy a little holy humor. Sharon then shares her own personal story of God’s deliverance from tumultuous childhood wounds. She helps women understand that each of us, no matter what our background, can overcome feelings of inferiority, insecurity, and inadequacy, by understanding who we are, what we have, and where we are in Christ…but it all depends on our decision to believe God’s Truth. Seeing yourself as God sees you opens the door to experiencing the abundant life Jesus came to give.
Session Two: Leaving the Past Behind
Sometimes what keeps us from living fully and free in the present is painful events from the past. Many times we sit in the jail cell of shame and condemnation or bitterness and resentment, even though Jesus has flung the door open wide and beckons us to freedom. Whether is it struggling with something that has been done to you, or something that has been done through you…it’s time to let it go and live free. In this session, Sharon shows how to leave the past behind by finding the hidden treasure in each painful situation, forgiving those who have hurt you, and forgiving yourself. Expect to leave this session with the weight of your past off your shoulders and onto His.
Session Three: Taking Every Thought Captive
Scripture says, “As a man (woman) thinks within himself, so he (she) is.” In this session Sharon teaches four essential steps to taking every thought captive and renewing your mind with the Truth. You’ll leave equipped to “out truth” the enemy and experience victory in your thought life!
Session Four: Come Dream with Me (Session Four is an optional session for multiple day retreats.)
Every little girl has dreams for her life, but for many of us, life took a different turn. In this session Sharon challenges us to dust off our hopes and dare to dream again – through God’s eyes. Can you risk the hope that God still has dreams for your life? That He hasn’t forgotten you? Place your hand firmly in His – take a deep breath and begin the exciting journey to a place you thought you’d never find: the dream God planned for you all along.
