We had such a fun time singing and praising God and memorizing Scripture together. My friend Chantel, pictured below, shared her faith testimony and also helped to lead worship. It warmed my heart to see the women tuned in to every word Chantel spoke, choosing to engage as they paged through their Bibles to follow along with the Scripture she shared. I also asked a friend and pastor, Gary, to come and share a message. Gary spoke about coming to God's throne of grace. He talked about how God doesn't expect us to fix everything before we come to him, but rather invites us to come His room full of grace to allow Him to transform us there. The women really connected to Gary's personable way of relating with them.
