	Find the good news that brings hope and spiritual renewal.
</p>

<p>
	We live in a world full of bad news. The media recounts stories of natural disasters, violence, and conflict. In the midst of all this heartbreak, we can’t lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel. It reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. He stepped out of eternity and into time to send us His one and only Son. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others. In this six-week study of the Book of Romans, we will be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, grace, daily life, God’s plan, relationships, and eternity. Whatever bad news we may receive, in <em>Romans</em> we will find good news to encourage and transform us.<br />
	Join Melissa in taking a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news. Let’s ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us!

	"All too often, God's Word can seem intimidating and hard to understand even, especially with books like Romans. In this study Melissa helps us take in the truths of Romans in a way that makes a difference in our lives today. Getting beyond the surface of reading God’s Word for feel-good feelings, Melissa helps us read to know God better and, as a result, build godly confidence that will stand no matter what may come in our lives." —Lynn Cowell, Author of <em>Make Your Move</em> and <em>Brave Beauty</em>, and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer
</p>

<p>
	In a bad-news world, how deeply we need to bathe our hearts afresh in the good news of the Gospel! Melissa’s beautiful study on Romans makes room for an invigorating encounter. Her teaching and insight caused the words to leap off the page, leaving me more deeply enthralled with this important book of God’s great narrative.<br />

	Go the distance in the life of faith.
</p>

<p>
	Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed <em>spiritual stamina</em> in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too!
</p>

<p>
	In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in <em>every </em>season.

	Something in us aches for more—more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way.
</p>

<p>
	In this study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us (1 Corinthians 10:6) so that we would not make the same mistakes and suffer the same consequences. God sent his only Son to die to buy our freedom from the sin that leads to discontentment, and we find our own promised land of peace and contentment in the life he gives us.
</p>

<p>
	By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God’s ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God’s character and promises.
</p>

<p>
	Together we will learn contentment as we discover more of our incredible God who truly is more than enough. Only God can fill that ache inside and help us focus on his provision and purpose in the midst of life’s joys and pains.
</p>

<p>
	The participant workbook includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.
</p>

<p>
	Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).

	Relationships are messy. Sometimes we struggle to get along, especially when there is disagreement. Often we find ourselves divided--even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?
</p>

<p>
	The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ.
</p>

<p>
	In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.
</p>

<p>
	The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.
</p>

<p>
	Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 25-30 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).

                    [description] => <p>
	All of us know what it's like to be hurt or betrayed. Often it's a small breach such as being spoken to rudely or overlooked in a time of need. Other times we experience lies, gossip, or harsh words that cut us to the core. Some of us have endured unspeakable pain through abuse, adultery, or abandonment. God knows the pain we cause each other and longs to help us learn to practice forgiveness. Nowhere do we see forgiveness played out more fully in Scripture than in the biblical story of Joseph.
</p>

<p>
	This six-week study explores what God has to say to us about grace and forgiveness through Joseph's story of trial and triumph found in Genesis 37-50. As we study his dreams, his betrayers, his dysfunctional family, his struggle to forgive, and his journey toward reconciliation, we'll find truths that echo into our own personal situations as well as practical help for answering common questions, such as:
</p>

<p>
	How do I stop dwelling on the hurt?<br />
	Is forgiving someone excusing what happened?<br />
	When will I stop having to re-forgive?<br />
	Is there a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation?<br />
	How can I forgive and still set boundaries?<br />
	Is it ever okay not to forgive?
</p>

<p>
	Whether or not you are working through a hurtful situation right now, you can learn from Joseph how to release your past and present hurts to God and allow Him to do a supernatural work of forgiveness in your life. God wants to use the very things intended to hurt you as a source of blessing in your life and the lives of others.
</p>

<p>
	The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.
</p>

<p>
	Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).

	When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start? <em>Jeremiah</em> offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us.

                    [description] => When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word
that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where
marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday
demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we
find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that
intentional living is possible even in an unstable world.<br>
<br>
In <em>Dare to Hope</em>, Melissa Spoelstra draws upon her best-selling Bible study <em>Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World</em>
to examine this hope-filled message, highlighting six guidelines for
intentional living that enable us to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as
we surrender to God and put our hope in Him alone. This book inspires us
to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has
good plans for us.<br>

lives, but if we’re honest, some days it’s a battle just to get them
dressed and ready for school on time. How can you mold their hearts when
sometimes you can’t even find their shoes?</p>

                    [description] => When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start?
<p><em>Jeremiah</em> offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their will to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us.

                    [description] => <p>Relationships are messy. Sometimes we struggle to get along, especially when there is disagreement. Often we find ourselves divided--even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?</p>
<p>The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. </p>
<p>In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.</p>
<p>The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 25-30 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

                    [description] => When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start?
<p><em>Jeremiah</em> offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us. </p>
<p>The DVD contains six video segments of approximately 22-28 minutes each for use during the group sessions. Sessions include:
</p>
<ul>
    <li>Raising the White Flag / <em>Surrender</em> (25:31)</li>
    <li>Recognizing Counterfeits and the Real Deal / <em>Idolatry</em> (26:05)</li>

    <li>Quitting the Blame Game / <em>Personal Responsibility </em>(28:07)</li>
    <li>Finding the Source of Our Hope / <em>The Promised Messiah </em>(22:07)</li>
</ul>
<p>All video sessions are closed captioned.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, Leader Guide, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

                    [description] => <p>All of us know what it's like to be hurt or betrayed. Often it's a
small breach such as being spoken to rudely or overlooked in a time of
need. Other times we experience lies, gossip, or harsh words that cut us
to the core. Some of us have endured unspeakable pain through abuse,
adultery, or abandonment. God knows the pain we cause each other and
longs to help us learn to practice forgiveness.
Nowhere do we see forgiveness played out more fully in Scripture than in
the biblical story of Joseph.</p>
<p>This six-week study explores what God has to say to us about grace
and forgiveness through Joseph's story of trial and triumph found in
Genesis 37-50. As we study his dreams, his betrayers, his dysfunctional
family, his struggle to forgive, and his journey toward reconciliation,
we'll find truths that echo into our own personal situations as well as
practical help for answering common questions, such as:
</p>
How do I stop dwelling on the hurt?<br>
Is forgiving someone excusing what happened?<br>
When will I stop having to re-forgive?<br>
Is there a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation?<br>
How can I forgive and still set boundaries?<br>
Is it ever okay not to forgive?<br>
<p>Whether or not you are working through a hurtful situation right now,
you can learn from Joseph how to release your past and present hurts to
God and allow Him to do a supernatural work of forgiveness in your
life. God wants to use the very things intended to hurt you as a source
of blessing in your life and the lives of others.
</p>
<p>
The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. </p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

<p>We live in a world full of bad news. The media recounts stories of natural disasters, violence, and conflict. In the midst of all this heartbreak, we can’t lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel. It reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. He stepped out of eternity and into time to send us His one and only Son. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others. In this six-week study of the Book of Romans, we will be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, grace, daily life, God’s plan, relationships, and eternity. Whatever bad news we may receive, in <em>Romans</em> we will find good news to encourage and transform us. <br>
Join Melissa in taking a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news. Let’s ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us!  </p>

                    [description] => <p>In the bustle of the Christmas season, it can be easy to get swept up in all of the things to do. But it’s important to pause and remember that our priority should be to spend time celebrating Christ’s birth and not forget to invite Jesus to his own party.</p>
<p>Christmas is far more than a celebration of an event from long ago or a modern holiday centered around shopping. Mindfully take time to listen to how God continues to speak through the Christmas story as the Gospel narratives centered around the birth of Jesus provide encouragement and revelation concerning the love of God and his wisdom for us today. </p>
<p>In <em>Total Christmas Makeover</em>, author and Bible teacher Melissa Spoelstra provides a practical approach for you and your family to turn your attention toward God’s grace day-by-day as you prepare for Christmas. This 31-day devotional presents key scriptures, ideas to implement with each reading, and questions for reflection to guide you in rediscovering rituals, relationship, and rest to connect you more deeply with Christ this holiday season.  </p>

                    [description] => <p>Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed <em>spiritual stamina</em> in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too! </p>
<p>In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in <em>every </em>season.</p>
<p>The Leader Kit is an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components. The kit includes a Participant Workbook, Leader Guide, and a DVD with six sessions of about 25 minutes each (with closed captioning). </p>
<p>Individual components also available separately, including a companion Prayer Devotional.</p>

We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in <em>every </em>season.</p>
<p>The DVD contains six video segments featuring Melissa’s engaging teaching (approximately 25 minutes each) for use during the group sessions, and offers closed captioning.</p>

<p>Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed <em>spiritual stamina</em> in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too! </p>
<p>In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith.

All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way. </p>
<p>In this study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us (1 Corinthians 10:6) so that we would not make the same mistakes and suffer the same consequences. God sent his only Son to die to buy our freedom from the sin that leads to discontentment, and we find our own promised land of peace and contentment in the life he gives us. </p>
<p>By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God’s ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God’s character and promises.</p>
<p>Together we will learn contentment as we discover more of our incredible God who truly is more than enough. Only God can fill that ache inside and help us focus on his provision and purpose in the midst of life’s joys and pains.</p>
<p>The Leader Kit is an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components. The kit includes a Participant Workbook, Leader Guide, and a DVD with six approximately 20-25 minute sessions (with closed captioning).</p>

                    [description] => <p>Something in us aches for more—more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way. </p>
<p>In this study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us (1 Corinthians 10:6) so that we would not make the same mistakes and suffer the same consequences. God sent his only Son to die to buy our freedom from the sin that leads to discontentment, and we find our own promised land of peace and contentment in the life he gives us.</p>
<p>By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God’s ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God’s character and promises.</p>
<p>Together we will learn contentment as we discover more of our incredible God who truly is more than enough. Only God can fill that ache inside and help us focus on his provision and purpose in the midst of life’s joys and pains.</p>
<p>The Leader Guide, to be used along with the study's workbook and DVD, contains six session plan outlines, complete with discussion points and questions, activities, prayers, and more—plus leader helps for facilitating a group.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

                    [description] => <p>Relationships are messy. We're all different and imperfect, and we can struggle to get along--especially with those who disagree with us. Often we find ourselves divided--even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?</p>
<p>The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.</p>

The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.</p>
<p>The Leader Guide, to be used along with the study's workbook and DVD, contains six session plan outlines, complete with discussion points and questions, activities, prayers, and more—plus leader helps for facilitating a group.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, DVD with six 25-30 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

Other times we experience lies, gossip, or harsh words that cut us to the core. Some of us have endured unspeakable pain through abuse, adultery, or abandonment. God knows the pain we cause each other and longs to help us learn to practice forgiveness.</p>
<p>Nowhere do we see forgiveness played out more fully in Scripture than in the biblical story of Joseph. This six-week study explores what God has to say to us about grace and forgiveness through Joseph’s story of trial and triumph found in Genesis 37-50. As we study his dreams, his betrayers, his dysfunctional family, his struggle to forgive, and his journey toward reconciliation, we’ll find truths that echo into our own personal situations as well as practical help for answering common questions, such as:</p>
<p>How do I stop dwelling on the hurt?</p>
<p>Is forgiving someone excusing what happened?</p>
<p>When will I stop having to re-forgive?</p>
<p>Is there a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation?</p>
<p>How can I forgive and still set boundaries?</p>
<p>Is it ever okay not to forgive?</p>
<p>Whether or not you are working through a hurtful situation right now, you can learn from Joseph how to release your past and present hurts to God and allow Him to do a supernatural work of forgiveness in your life. God wants to use the very things intended to hurt you as a source of blessing in your life and the lives of others.</p>

                    [description] => <p>All of us know what it’s like to be hurt or betrayed. Often it’s a small breach such as being spoken to rudely or overlooked in a time of need. Other times we experience lies, gossip, or harsh words that cut us to the core. Some of us have endured unspeakable pain through abuse, adultery, or abandonment. God knows the pain we cause each other and longs to help us learn to practice forgiveness.</p>
<p>Nowhere do we see forgiveness played out more fully in Scripture than in the biblical story of Joseph. This six-week study explores what God has to say to us about grace and forgiveness through Joseph’s story of trial and triumph found in Genesis 37-50. As we study his dreams, his betrayers, his dysfunctional family, his struggle to forgive, and his journey toward reconciliation, we’ll find truths that echo into our own personal situations as well as practical help for answering common questions, such as:</p>
<p>How do I stop dwelling on the hurt?</p>
<p>Is forgiving someone excusing what happened?</p>
<p>When will I stop having to re-forgive?</p>
<p>Is there a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation?</p>
<p>How can I forgive and still set boundaries?</p>
<p>Is it ever okay not to forgive?</p>
<p>Whether or not you are working through a hurtful situation right now, you can learn from Joseph how to release your past and present hurts to God and allow Him to do a supernatural work of forgiveness in your life. God wants to use the very things intended to hurt you as a source of blessing in your life and the lives of others.</p>
<p>The Leader Guide contains six session plan outlines, complete with discussion points and questions, activities, prayers, and more—plus leader helps for facilitating a group.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

                    [description] => <p>When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start? <em>Jeremiah</em> offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us. </p>

                    [description] => <p>When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start? <em>Jeremiah</em> offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us.</p>
<p>The participant workbook includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.</p>
<p>Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components).</p>

<p>Find the good news that brings hope and spiritual renewal.</p>
<p>We live in a world full of bad news. The media recounts stories of natural disasters, violence, and conflict. In the midst of all this heartbreak, we can’t lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel. It reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. He stepped out of eternity and into time to send us His one and only Son. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others. In this six-week study of the Book of Romans, we will be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, grace, daily life, God’s plan, relationships, and eternity. Whatever bad news we may receive, in <em>Romans</em> we will find good news to encourage and transform us. <br>
Join Melissa in taking a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news. Let’s ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us!</p>

In this study Melissa helps us take in the truths of Romans in a way that makes a difference in our lives today.

<p><em>Romans</em> Video Session Descriptions</p>
<p>Introductory Video<br>
In this introductory video, Melissa provides helpful background information that gives us context for studying this letter written over 2,000 years ago.</p>
<p>Week 1<br>
In this video segment Melissa explores verses in Romans 1 and 2 to show us how we can take off the masks we wear and get real about our need for God so that the good news can change everything in our lives.</p>
<p >Week 2<br>
This week Melissa highlights parts of Romans 3-5 as she explores the good news about hope. No matter what our circumstances are screaming, we can put our hope in God’s steadfast promises that anchor us.</p>
<p>Week 3<br>
In this video segment we look at parts of Romans 6-8 as we consider where our focus is. Melissa suggests that if it feels we are going through the motions in our faith, we need to check the volume on our spiritual headphones and let the music of the gospel be loud in our lives.</p>
<p >Week 4<br>
This week Melissa highlights parts of Romans 9-11 to show us that God’s plan is better than ours and that He can redeem suffering and trials for good. She encourages us to look for where God is at work in the bigger picture of our lives.</p>
<p >Week 5<br>
In this video segment Melissa lifts up verses in romans 12-14 to help us change the way we think about ourselves and others, stop pretending and posing in relationships, and honor those around us.</p>
<p>Week 6<br>
In this final week Melissa underscores parts of Romans 15 and 16 to remind us that suffering has an expiration date and there is great hope to be found while we wait for that day.</p>

                    [description] => <p>Find the good news that brings hope and spiritual renewal.</p>
<p>We live in a world full of bad news. The media recounts stories of natural disasters, violence, and conflict. In the midst of all this heartbreak, we can’t lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel. It reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. He stepped out of eternity and into time to send us His one and only Son. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others. In this six-week study of the Book of Romans, we will be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, grace, daily life, God’s plan, relationships, and eternity. Whatever bad news we may receive, in <em>Romans</em> we will find good news to encourage and transform us. <br>
Join Melissa in taking a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news. Let’s ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us!  </p>

In this study Melissa helps us take in the truths of Romans in a way that makes a difference in our lives today.

<p>Introductory Video<br>
In this introductory video, Melissa provides helpful background information that gives us context for studying this letter written over 2,000 years ago.</p>
<p>Week 1<br>
In this video segment Melissa explores verses in Romans 1 and 2 to show us how we can take off the masks we wear and get real about our need for God so that the good news can change everything in our lives.</p>
<p>Week 2<br>
This week Melissa highlights parts of Romans 3-5 as she explores the good news about hope. No matter what our circumstances are screaming, we can put our hope in God’s steadfast promises that anchor us.</p>
<p>Week 3<br>
In this video segment we look at parts of Romans 6-8 as we consider where our focus is. Melissa suggests that if it feels we are going through the motions in our faith, we need to check the volume on our spiritual headphones and let the music of the gospel be loud in our lives.</p>
<p>Week 4<br>
This week Melissa highlights parts of Romans 9-11 to show us that God’s plan is better than ours and that He can redeem suffering and trials for good. She encourages us to look for where God is at work in the bigger picture of our lives.</p>
<p>Week 5<br>
In this video segment Melissa lifts up verses in romans 12-14 to help us change the way we think about ourselves and others, stop pretending and posing in relationships, and honor those around us.</p>
<p>Week 6<br>
In this final week Melissa underscores parts of Romans 15 and 16 to remind us that suffering has an expiration date and there is great hope to be found while we wait for that day.</p>
