 Mom's Bible Study



CUMC│Zoom or In-person



Sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in-something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.


In this powerful study, author and speaker Laurie Short mines the Scriptures and guides you through insights and promises from 40 verses we often overlook. Digging in to these "in between" verses, she unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help you seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways. From trusting God's timing, to not worrying about the future, to holding on to faith when things look dark, the hidden insights found in these sessions will help you navigate the challenges that cross your path, breathe new life into your weary soul, and ignite your faith once again.
