THRIVE: A Journey into Grace

Finding Purpose When Life Brings the Unexpected

A seminar for women declaring that God has created you for a purpose that He wants to fulfill. That doesn’t mean life will always be easy. On the contrary, pain is a part of life on earth and God can take the pain-filled tragedies of life and turn them to good in your life. It won’t happen all at once. It’s a journey–a journey into Grace. But you CAN thrive again!

From personal experience, our speakers will share how they are traveling their own Journeys into Grace. They’ll present practical helps and steps that you can take along your Journey. They share with you God’s resources. Presentations conclude with an informal question and answer time.



Darlene Sala, author of Created for a Purpose, leads the team, and reminds each woman that she has been put here on this earth for a unique purpose, addressing our doubts in light of the devastating circumstances of life. For more about Darlene see here.

Additional speakers share personal journeys on a wide variety of topics.
