True You: Seeking the You God Created

Are you exhausted by the do-more, be-more life? Do you long to uncover your true self and your purpose in this world? Gardeners familiar with the technique called “pruning open” know that the secret to healthy plants and trees lies in the subtracting rather than adding. Similarly, we begin to flourish as we let go of our false selves and allow God to prune us. With powerful stories and insights into the latest research, our speaker, Michelle DeRusha, will help us;

  • declutter our hearts, minds, and souls
  • let go of busyness and false identities
  • grow in our relationships, vocation, communities, and intimacy with God

Women of all ages (high school and above) are invited to attend. Scholarships are available.
