The Secret of Contentment - Many of us have called ourselves Christians for a long time, but we’re overwhelmed with worry, anxiety, and doubt. How can we learn to be content in any situation we face? After facing several harrowing life struggles, including walking with her mom through cancer, Ginny found answers in a letter Paul wrote from a prison cell. Come discover Paul’s secret of contentment through Ginny’s teaching and music. Based on Phil. 4:12.
Love be the Loudest: Hearing God’s Voice Above the Noise - Our lives are full of noise – from our everyday busyness to social media to the voices whispering criticisms in our own heads. As the noise of career demands, singleness, and self-doubt grew to a fever pitch for Ginny, she began a desperate search for change. Psalm 25:14 says God wants to speak to us, but how do we tune our hearts to His voice? Together, we’ll journey through Ginny’s devotional and select songs as we learn how to hear Him, and how His voice can change us.
Singing in the Dark: Learning to Love Your Life in Every Circumstance - Is it possible to endure a difficult job, family situation, disability, or terminal illness with hope? James says it is when he invites us to consider our trials pure joy. Ginny, who has been blind since age three, will share Scriptures and her own personal story and songs, as we consider what it means to find true joy and infinite hope in our darkest days.
What Our Songs Say - Join Ginny for an exploration of current popular songs, what they tell us about the state of our culture, and how they can drive us toward the Gospel.
How I See It - Blind since age three, Ginny has learned how to “see” the world differently than most. But all of us are a little blind this side of Heaven (1 Cor 13), and as a result, our stories don’t always make sense. Let’s explore how we can learn to see ourselves and each other as God sees us.
