THE Path Between Us | AN ENNEAGRAM STUDY
Jay Smith & Shelley Johnson | Room 208
Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others—and in ourselves. This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others' personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships.
Jay Smith and Shelley Johnson invite couples and individuals into a study of Suzanne’s book and a deeper discussion of relationships and tap into relationship building techniques Jay uses in marriage counseling to help our relationships make more sense, find healing, and develop methods for better communication. Books will be available for purchase at class.

CONNECT GROUP | Church of the small things
Kendell Belcher | Room 207
What do cooking dinner, driving sugar-buzzed junior high girls to a soccer tournament, and being nice to that coworker who perpetually gets on your nerves have to do with making a lasting impact? In Church of the Small Things, Melanie Shankle reminds us that God does extraordinary things in our most mundane moments of faithfulness. Through her hilarious reflections on being a mom, wife, and writer, Melanie helps us embrace a meaningful life as we find the beauty and the laughter that lie right beneath the surface of every ordinary, incredible day. God uses the smallest acts of faithfulness to love and influence the people around us. The Connect Group invites all women to take part in this book study. Books will be available for purchase in class.
Women Walking With Jesus | it’s not supposed to be this way
Vickie Taylor | Rm 105
Life often looks different than we’d hoped or expected. Some life-events catch us off guard while others shatter us completely. Feeling disappointed and disillusioned, we can start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. In her newest Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst shares what she has personally discovered – that our disappointments can be divine appointments that our souls need to radically encounter God. Lysa invites women into her own journey of faith to help us stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment, train ourselves to recognize strategies the enemy uses, discover how to be steadfast when God does give us more than we can handle, shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us, and know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God’s truth. Study guides are available for purchase in class.
