Jean-Ann’s masterful storytelling skills make this fun, fast paced, two-session mini-retreat fly by so quickly, she will leave you wanting more! The sessions are filled with gospel references and personal stories of trials, doubts, triumph, and redemption.
Session One focuses on discovering our identity in Christ as the foundation of our faith. In Session Two, Jean-Ann effectively uses Scripture to illustrate the undeniable truth that God is fully aware of everything we are going through and that He had a plan in place long before we enter the storms of life. The message, along with a power point presentation, includes dozens of Scripture references to enhance the message.
Included are two, impactful written exercises for the attendees to dig a bit deeper, to dicover who they are, in Christ, and to uncover the evidence of His presence in our lives during trying time in our past and how He is working in our lives today.
How many times have we heard someone say we need to care of ourselves before we can take care of others? Especially our kids! While that is great advice, how in the world do we do that? Juggling kids, jobs, meals, school, church, famly and friends can suck the nice out of any woman!
We need tools, ladies!
In this 40 minute talk is designed for MOPS and Single Mother’s Groups. Jean-Ann offers common sense tools, supported by Scripture, to help us respect and care for ourselves, express our needs, and honor the incredible blessing of being a mother. If time allows, a period of Q & A may follow.
Beyond Beauty: The Seven Keys to Irresistible Attraction
A message all women can relate to! The 7 Keys challenge all to look beyond the world’s view of our physical appearance and embrace the biblical truth of who we are in Christ. When we are living the life God intends for us, we are irresistibly attractive!
Healthy Boundaries: The Art of Saying No
Setting healthy boundaries is biblical! The idea of setting boundaries makes even the strongest of us squirm, but a boundary is nothing more than an invisible barrier that defines where you end and another person begins. We were created to be a bedrock of faith, not a doormat of grace. This talk includes Scripture-supported tips and steps to make boundary setting much easier.
What Our Labels Say About Us
Three things consistently tell the truth: small children, Spandex, and our behavior. Truth is in short supply these days. Grace is a rare commodity as well. Jesus came to this earth full of truth and grace. His example was meant to inspire us to make sure truth and grace go hand in hand. Jean-Ann says, “Truth without grace is bullying. Grace without truth is enabling. One without the other is out of balance and can be downright mean.”
Equipped and Called: When Gifts and Passions Collide
On Food Network’s cooking show “Chopped,” competing chefs are given a basket of five wacky ingredients to create a delicious meal. God also gives us “ingredients” to put to use. They include our personality, sense of humor, our level of discernment, and the abilities to teach, preach, encourage, and serve others. God provides the ingredients and it is our responsibility to use them to create a life that glorifies Him and builds His kingdom. What are your gifts and passions?
Life Beyond the “To Do” List: Making Room for God’s Blessings
Who snuck in and sucked the lazy out of our days? Exhaustion is the new status symbol. Busy people are important people. Right? A common desire of most coaching clients is to do more of what they love and less of what they don’t. The biggest obstacle is their calendar. It is so jam-packed that they do not have room to do more of what they want to do, even if they knew what it was. Do you have time with God scheduled on your calendar? If not, let’s ask ourselves what gets in the way.
