Pastor’s Pick

Excited yet burdened about male and female relationships, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife Sarah launched the Love & Respect Conferences in 1999. Based on over three decades of counseling as well as scientific and biblical research, this conference has given hope and new life to thousands of marriages.

This study is perfect for individuals, couples, or small groups but is greatly enhanced with the comprehensive workbook (see options below). It includes Fill-In-The-Blank in-session guides, Discussion Questions, Immediate Application, Mid-week devotionals, a Leader’s Guide, and recommendations for doing alone, as a couple, or small group. Discounts for purchasing in bulk.
There will be three major questions asked and answered in the 6+ hours of content:
Why do we negatively react to each other in marriage? This will be explained in what is called the Crazy Cycle.
How do I best motivate my spouse? The Energizing Cycle answers this question.
What if my spouse does not respond to me? The Rewarded Cycle informs us what to do.

Who are you when life is steady? 
Who are you when storms come?

Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.

In this powerful series, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.

In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving series features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.

Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!
