  • Debbie’s Bible Study – Brave: Honest questions women ask. This Bible study for women looks at the heart of what women are thinking and feeling. Speaks to participants about deep feelings that all women have at one time or another. We will look boldly at some of the fears and struggles of being a woman, and see how we can be brave in the face of those challenges. It takes a brave woman to ask these questions and dig into these topics alongside other believers. We’ve all got insecurities, flaws, and struggles that we’re afraid to address. But if we can be brave enough to raise the questions, God will answer us. You’ve got questions. God’s got answers. Be brave. Ask. Why can’t I get it together? Am I as invisible as I feel? What am I so afraid of?
