THIS YEARS THEME

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord. 

-LUKE 4:18-19

 

 

What do you long for? What is the thing that your heart craves?

Is it possible that your deepest desire is to be free?

                Free from worry.

                Free from feeling stuck.

                Free from hustling to be loved.

                Free from a heaviness you can’t put your finger on.

                Free from thinking you should be someone other than exactly who you are.

                At the core, maybe what we are all longing for is to be Free Indeed.

Let Love Be The Loudest Voice, Be Gutsy, Go First

It is a fact that freedom is contagious. That is why we are choosing to go first in order to spark a revolution of women who are choosing freedom over fear. Going first is about being courageous enough to take steps before you are ready, to share the details of your journey, extend invitations, conquer fears, and lead the way for friends and kids and family. In fact, one of the best ways to advocate for others’ freedom is to go first ourselves, and then we can share with courage and honesty because we have found the keys that can set others free. We will go first so that we can set other captives free.

Going first means being the first to tell your story, the first to strike up a conversation with a stranger, the first to invite a friend to MOPS. It is walking in freedom and inviting others to get free by encouraging other women to get honest about their failures, fears and secrets. Because what we know is, The truth will set you free. – John 8:31-32
