            What does it feel like to come into a church service, group, event, or community and know you are lacking a critical part of your community’s identity? What does it feel like when you have experienced a loss that other people do not acknowledge? What does it feel like to skip the grieving and mourning process of this loss because it is not culturally acceptable to grieve and mourn the loss of the dream of marriage and children? This program is an initiative designed for single women who have experienced the loss of marriage and children (whether real or perceived) between the ages of twenty and forty. This program is designed to minister to these women by creating a safe space for healing, by dispensing much needed grace and mercy, by bringing reconciliation to the Body of Christ by allowing these women to be connected again through their loss, and by allowing these women to grieve, mourn, and be healed from these losses. Boldly put, there is a place for single women under the age of forty who are not married and do not have children in the Body of Christ, and these small group lessons are designed to bring discussion and dialogue on a topic that has not been given much attention.

Please contact womenofvisionleadership@gmail.com to order this small group series. This six week series is only$10, and will be a blessing to women in your church.
