Author and speaker Laurie Short has created a new study to address two of the biggest challenges facing us right now: Holding on and Letting go. It's the perfect follow up to her popular 40 verses study-- Laurie takes a deeper dive into six of the scriptures, and gives examples from her life and speaking that bring fresh insights from God's word. In six short but impactful sessions, she reveals how we can hold on to God when we can’t see what He is doing, and let go when things aren’t going the way we’d like.
There is a six-week study guide that accompanies this series- with thought provoking questions, ice breakers, additional scriptures, and reflection prompts that can be used online or in person-- with any size group.
