Is it difficult to see joy in your day-to-day life?
Do problems consume your thoughts and steal your joy?
Do you desire a deeper relationship with God to help you find the joy in your life?

Life can be a difficult road to navigate with twists and turns and road blocks to faith and joy in your walk with the Lord.  Come join us Saturday, January 27, 2024 to find out what other women are doing in their lives to experience Joy in the Journey of life in spite of the detours and upheavals that occur.  Three guest speakers will present their own inspiring stories reinforcing that a life lived for Christ can be joyful through all of its pitfalls, perils, blessings and miracles.  You, too, can find joy in the journey.
