Public Speaking: Girls Living Wisely Retreat

Living wild or living wise? Do you see confusion about these two choices in the minds, hearts and behaviors of the young women in your life?

There are answers for the confusion. God’s word tell us as written in Ephesians 5:15, “Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but wise.”

Busy schedules and over commitment, broken homes, our desires for entertainment, even our electronic engagements are sometimes moving us through life without intention on our part. However, God’s word indicates we need to be intentional in the way we live, in the choices we make.

In the matter of how we live, whether wild or wise, He has given us direction.

After two years of an intensive study for young women in Mexico on being girls of wisdom, Linda has written a curriculum that can be used for a weekend retreat which she is willing to come and share with the young women of your church, your family or your social community. It is a Biblically based study contrasting the wild woman of Proverbs 7 with the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31. It is a study that contains bible stories and applications, skits, games, memorization, personal inventories , practical illustrations, homework and prayer.
