-WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THIS PROGRAM FOR A WOMEN'S STUDY? HOW MUCH TIME WOULD WE NEED/WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
The Class: Each week, ladies will gather together for a time of small group discussions based on that week’s homework, found in the book. After small groups, ladies will join together to view one of the 12-filmed Workshops to learn some of the most practical and necessary skills for the management of the home while following along in the corresponding Workshop Guide that comes complete with templates, recipes, worksheets and notes right from our highly trained and skilled workshop teachers.
Celebration: Completing the program is a cause for celebration. The final week (week 13) the program will conclude with a Testimony Dinner. This is a time to gather for a potluck or catered meal and share all that God has accomplished through this study. For a twist, invite husbands or a friend. Wait till you hear the participant’s stories and marvel at the strong bonds that formed with one another during your sessions.
Prayer: Is vital to the success of your program. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)!
