Meredith Snoddy and Ann Thurston // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Praying for unbelieving friends and family to come to know the Lord can be distressing at times. We may have been praying for years and still have yet to see salvation, easily making us want to give up. This breakout session recording will not only give encouragement to stay the course and not give up, but will give you tips on how to share the gospel with those close to you.
Tabatha Frost // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Colossians 3:12 says that we are holy, chosen, and beloved, but what do those words really mean? And what do they have to do with our identity in Christ? This breakout session recording explains what it means to be the holy, chosen, and beloved people of God, and how this identity shapes who we are and what we are meant to do.
Meg Barnes // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Some of Paul’s last words to his son in the faith, Timothy, were “discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness…[because] godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come” (I Timothy 4:7b-8). Holiness, or godliness, must be pursued by the believer as they desire God and seek to honor in their daily lives. This breakout session recording focuses on the role of the individual in the discipline of godliness as we allow the Holy Spirit to transform us, but recognize the responsibility we have as believers.
Lesley Hildreth // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. The Bible contains hundreds of different characters in which God used to accomplish his purpose, but have you ever considered the women? This breakout session recording explores select women throughout the Bible from various backgrounds and circumstances that God used in his redemptive plan, and the lessons they give us that we can apply to our lives today.
Kimberly Merida // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Scripture tells us that when we receive Christ we are adopted as sons and daughters into his family. This breakout session recording discusses what our identity as children of God means, and how we can live out our daily lives in light of such an identity.
Ashley Allen // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Scripture speaks much about our words. In the passage from Colossians, Paul identifies several places of speech that believers are to “put off.” In the Book of James it is also noted that our words can be sparks that can set an entire forest on fire. How do we control our tongues, though, and have our words speak life, kindness, gentleness and glory to Christ Jesus? This breakout session recording will provide practical suggestions for using our tongues and our words wisely.
