WOMEN'S NETWORK

The Women's Network exists to disciple, inspire and motivate women to reach their God-given potential. We endeavour to provide resources and opportunities to come together to support and encourage one another. Our goals are a foundation of prayer, a focus on missions and a multi-faceted lifestyle for women to see passion increased, potential unleashed and purpose fulfilled.


We value relationships with women of every culture and generation. We believe in the intrinsic value of women and their potential to effect the eternal destiny of this generation and beyond. We seek to facilitate and empower women to achieve their God-given dreams. We desire to work with the local church to empower every woman to be a person of influence in her community. As we identify the needs in demographic areas, we can respond with relevance in touching others and living 'Beyond Ourselves.'

Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Counter the lies that keep you from abundant living.


Satan is the master deceiver and his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles.


"eg; Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation,"eg; says Nancy Leigh DeMoss. "eg; Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still, others are emotional prisoners."


In bestselling Lies Women Believe, Nancy exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Nancy offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan's deceptions: God's truth!


Soul Keeping By John Ortberg


Anxiety. Depression. Fear. Loneliness. These are all symptoms of a soul that have lost touch with its source of life. Like a flower snipped from the vine, the soul that is not turned toward God can only wither away.


In Soul Keeping, bestselling author John Ortberg sheds light on the most overlooked, underrated, and least-understood part of your being. With a workable and relevant approach, he shows how living the "with God" life isn't just a good idea--it's the only way to find lasting peace and satisfaction.


Storyline by Donald Miller


When you complete the Storyline process, you'll have a life plan that will give you clarity and direction for living a great story.


The storyline will help you answer one important question: When the credits roll at the end of your life, how will you have wanted to live?


To accomplish this, we've blended the discipline of storytelling with the therapeutic philosophy of acclaimed psychologist Viktor Frankl. Over the last several years, we've distilled this process into eight modules that will help you:


*Understand where you fit within God's story.

*Interact with God in a functional rather than dysfunctional way.

*Understand you share agency with God to make an impact.

*Clarify your ambitions.

*Get off the couch and get started.

*Embrace rather than avoid conflict.

*Envision climactic scenes that will prove more motivating than setting goals.

*Filter your decisions through a life theme.

*Inspire others by living a great story.


Once you've completed the Storyline process, visit mysubplot.com and share your story with the world.


We'd love to have you join the thousands of people who are living a better story because of Storyline. The world needs your story.


Unstoppable by Christine Caine


People of faith are lined up in lanes all over this globe, batons in hand, running the race that matters most in this world—the divine relay


The divine relay is tough. The track is treacherous. There are so many ways to mangle the exchange zones, to overshoot, to be knocked off the track, to drop the baton, to stop running. The church needs champion runners who never give up, who persevere no matter what they encounter, who run to win, unstoppable, no matter the cost.


If we pass the baton of faith fluidly in the exchange zone from person to person, from generation to generation, we speed unstoppable toward the finish line. But if we fumble the exchange, the whole team, the whole church, suffers. Some runners even stop running and walk right out of the race.


Discover just how important it is to get the “exchange zone” right, to ensure that no runners stop running and walk off the field, but that every runner becomes unstoppable in their dedication to carrying their baton of faith to the next runner.


The Emotionally Healthy Leader (2015) by Peter Scazzero


In The Emotionally Healthy Leader, bestselling author Peter Scazzero shows leaders how to develop a deep, inner life with Christ, examining its profound implications for surviving stress, planning, and decision-making, building teams, creating healthy culture, influencing others, and much more.


A More Excellent Way to Be In Health (2009) by Dr. Henry Wright


Fervent by Priscilla Shirer


You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted.


So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon, that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.


Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst


The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection--from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.


Sisterhood by Bobbie Houston


Bobbie Houston paints a vision of God's plan for women of all ages and backgrounds to flourish, empower each other, and unite to change the world. We don't need to look far to realize that not all women live with the same opportunities and confidence.


Readers will learn how to embrace their individual gifts and value as women, growing seeds of change into greater possibilities for women everywhere. If one woman can change her world, then only heaven truly knows what an entire company of women can achieve.


The Best YES by Lysa TerKeurst


Lysa TerKeurst is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In The Best Yes she will help you:


•Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love.

•Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no.

•Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process.

•Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.


The Broken Way by Ann Voscamp


New York Times best-selling author Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives --- and one that The Broken Way rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.


This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large, it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken --- and still lets yourself be loved.


You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain but actually within it.

You could discover and trust this broken way --- the way to not be afraid of broken things.


The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed To Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown


Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?


In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, Ph.D., a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living - a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.


In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
