Women’s Wednesday Experience (WWE) – Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely

Joan Watkins | Gilmore Hall South | Wednesdays | 6:30 pmDo you ever feel left out, lonely, or less than? Learn the secret of belonging which will help you keep rejections in perspective and be better equipped to foster healthy connections in your relationships. In the book Uninvited, author Lysa TerKeurst shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection, perceived judgment, and the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God. With biblical depth, gut honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:

  • Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.
  • Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.
  • Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady your soul and restore your confidence in the midst of rejection.
  • Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.

Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken — a love that does not reject or uninvite. To register, please click the following link: https://paznaz.elexiochms.com/external/form/8d65136f-91e7-4c3a-8f7f-af72b067d39c

PazNaz Village

"It's O.K. to Get It Wrong” is the theme of 2022 Winter/Spring sessions of PazNaz Village. This support ministry has been developed for single moms and the children of single parents. The meetings take place on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Fridays and include a shared meal at 6:30 pm followed by separate age-appropriate programming for children, teens, and adults.  All meetings include free childcare.

Who can be a PazNaz Village Mom? We believe that a single mom is any woman who is walking their parenting journey, whether permanently or temporarily, and discovers they are missing the emotional, financial or physical support a life partner provides. We are called to help fill in the gap so that no single mom in our community walks her journey alone.Who can be a PazNaz Village Kid? Any child of a single parent who would enjoy gathering with other children of single parents to learn, play and share together.Are there PazNaz Village Dads? Children of single dads are welcome, but currently there is no group for the single dads. Perhaps you can form a group of your own that meets when our single moms do. It is not advisable to combine the moms and dads because of the need for healing in some situations. It is our prayer that one day a man will answer a call to work with single dads in our community. Could that be you?If you would like to be a participant in or volunteer for PazNaz Village, please contact Ferol Null at fnull@paznaz.org or 626.351.2414 to register yourself and/or your children.
