6 Breakout Sessions
Broken in our Thinking
Are the voices in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough? Are you experiencing self-doubt, fear, low self-image? Are you stuck in a pattern of negative thinking that you desperately want to get rid of?
Inadequate self image robs us of our energy and our ability to relate to others because we are absorbed in our own inadequacies. In God’s word it tells us that we are Fearfully and Wonderfully made in His image, in His likeness, and that we are Good. God says we are Beautiful.
However, we are often slaves to the opinions of others, comparing ourselves to what society says we should be like, what we should look like, what we should believe. Do you want to allow others to direct and control your thinking? Or do you want to take it back? Come join me as we learn how to see ourselves as God does, to change that self doubt into self confidence, and learn how to love yourself from the inside out with God by your side.
Broken in our Families
There’s not a single family on this planet that isn’t broken by sin. Sure, some families’ brokenness is more public, more out there, more on display for the world to observe, judge, perhaps ridicule or even sympathize with, but the reality is that not a single family escapes the brokenness brought on by sin. In fact, through God’s Word, the Bible, we see families with leaders like Abraham, Isaac, and Judah experience the fallout from the sins of adultery, prostitution, incest, murder, betrayal, deceit and the list goes on and on. My family, like yours and theirs, has tasted the sorrow, pain, devastation and hurt brought on by sin and the brokenness it brings, but because of God’s grace and pursuit of the brokenhearted, we have also experienced the life, joy and beauty that He alone can resurrect from the shattered pieces. God chose to bring the Savior of the world, Jesus, to a broken world through a broken family, according to Matthew 1. Who knows what He may choose to do through yours and mine!
Broken by Addiction
Veronica will discuss being being broken within the framework of addiction, and how God’s grace and love have saved her life. Through the work of Christ in her life, Veronica has broken the cycle of alcohol addiction that has been in her family for years. Join her as Veronica willingly and openly shares the victories, the struggles and the resources she has encountered along her journey to freedom through Christ. Veronica is led to share her story with other sisters in the hope that someone else who may be struggling with addiction or anyone who has a family member struggling with addiction will be encouraged that victory can and does happen.
Broken by the Church
Openness in Brokenness
Are you afraid for someone to know how messed up you really are? Do you know there is One with whom you can safely share your brokenness? One with whom you can open up and know He will never judge or condemn you? Instead the Lord says to you, precious daughter, “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power (and beauty) is made perfect in weakness.” Learning how to offer up all your broken pieces, your weaknesses to God is a great place to begin your healing journey.
You can experience the amazing freedom within when you are able to admit to your Heavenly Father you don’t have it all together. (He already knows!) In this session we’ll take a look together at how the Psalmist David shows us how we too can all be open in our brokenness.
The Effects of Shame in Brokenness
“We so often think of shame in terms of specific sin. But what if it isn’t about a specific sin; rather, a state of being that keeps us from vulnerability, deep connection, peace, and freedom? In this breakout, we will look at the root of shame, what shame looks like in our daily interactions, and how vulnerability and brokenness are keys to freedom.”
What is Kintsugi?
“Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. The process usually results in something more beautiful than the original.” Christopher Jobson
From The Executive Director
God uses brokenness. He uses it to create dependence on Him, and to transform us into the image of His Son, Jesus. Beautifully Broken references the amazing way our Father reclaims and reframes the brokenness in our lives in order to create beauty and bring glory to His name.- Stephanie Baker
