In this six-session study video-based Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), bestselling author and popular blogger Melanie Shankle speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, everyday world of attending class on their college campus, driving carpool to soccer practice, cooking a meal for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.
There's a quote that says "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away." And the pressure of that can be staggering, as we spend our days looking for that big thing that promises to take our breath away. Meanwhile, we lose sight of the small significance of fully living with every breath we take.
It doesn't matter how old we are or what kind of work we do, we've all wondered at times, "Does my life really matter? Do the everyday events and messy moments make any kind of difference? Is it okay to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking chicken for dinner?"
In each session Melanie uses humorous stories told in her signature light-hearted style to offer women the grace to embrace what it means to live a small, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.
This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.
