Today’s woman faces challenges in every area of her life: family, career, socially, health, financial, emotional, and spiritual. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming trying to manage it all. This ministry is here to offer hope and support as we encourage women to keep their focus on the cross, on Jesus.
“She clothes herself with the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), with strength and dignity (Proverbs 31:25), and with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience (Col 3:12). The beauty of the Lord rests upon her and establishes the work of her hands (Ps. 90:17).”
Through bible study, prayer, service, Christian fellowship, and a sincere heart for Christ you will be transformed by the Holy Spirit – whether you are a new Christian or a mature Christian – transformation is continual for those who seek the Lord. Through transformation, not only will you and your life be changed, but you will help change the lives of others – in your family, at work, at church, and in the community!

OPTION 1: Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild
Offered Tuesday Morning and Wednesday Evening.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life. In this 7-session study by Jennifer Rothschild, gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.
OPTION 2: When God Doesn’t Fix It by Laura Story
Offered Tuesday Morning and Sunday Evening.
Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus. Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.
OPTION 3: Forgiven and Set Free by Linda Cochrane
No charge, offered year round.
Forgiven and Set Free, an inspired Bible study that can be used by individual women or by a group, effectively ministers God’s healing grace to women who are suffering remorse and guilt after an abortion.This study was developed out of Linda Cochrane’s experience of being freed from the bondage of guilt and grief that followed her abortion. “As I read my Bible, Christ was faithful to touch my open wounds with the healing touch of His promises, ” she writes. “He promised to turn all my wailing into dancing and He has.” Forgiven and Set Free guides suffering and hurting women to bring their emotional scars from abortion “out of the dark past and into His holy light,” where true and lasting healing can take place.
Are you rushing through life?.. meeting demands, facing pressures, .. realizing that you are holding your breath…with worries, concerns, troubles?
Job 33:4 says “The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
The Women’s Ministry of Lake Norman Baptist would like to invite you to gather together, as we place ourselves in a position for God to breathe life into our lives and souls….we invite you to “Exhale.”
At each Exhale gathering, you can expect to:
*be fed through an encouraging message
*and meet new friends or connect with old ones
….all while enjoying coffee and dessert.
Take some time to exhale and join us at our next Exhale event.
