By infusing women with this divine self-awareness, you will walk away affirmed, equipped, and commissioned to steward your slice of God’s image. See more at www.YourAuthenticPersonality.com.
Real Grace, Real Friends
Have you ever wanted to be a better friend, someone who is able to offer real grace to others? Dale describes her personal path to grace-filled friendships with candor and humor. The first steps of her journey to offer grace began by first learning to receive grace through brokenness, humility, and honesty. From that fulfilled place Dale illustrates how we can offer our friends the authentic qualities of grace through courage, support and freedom.
Who Are Your People?
Most of us crave deeper connection and real community, but find it difficult to develop life-giving friendships in the midst of our everyday lives. Based on the model of Jesus, Dale describes the three levels of friendship (casual, close and confidential), the limitations and contributions of each, and how to have the types of relationships you desire.
The Invisible Woman: Does Anyone See Me?
Do you ever feel invisible as a wife, a woman, or a mom? At some point most women feel unnoticed and unappreciated by the world, their families, and other significant people in their lives. Have you lived as a tomboy with your femininity going unrecognized for years? Looking at Hagar, an invisible woman from the book of Genesis, who came to know “the God who sees me”, Dale shows us how the experience of being seen by God can transform our hidden, mundane lives and allow us to see ourselves, others and God in a new and encouraging way.
Rest for our Weary Souls
Never Stop Improving. That is the motto of Lowes Home Improvement store and the motto of many of us who seek to make life better for ourselves or someone we love. And yet this attitude of striving is a tiring way to live. Dale shows us through her own experience that our distorted view of God and our weak consciences that drive this behavior can be redeemed by a the simple invitation from Jesus.
Hide & Seek: The Game of Authenticity
Did you play Hide & Seek as a child? Are you still playing the game now by hiding parts of your life that you fear might be rejected, judged or fixed by those around you? And yet authenticity, exposing the real you, is the secret to real connection. Dale shows us how to come out of hiding and encourage other women to do the same by creating an atmosphere of safety.
The season of thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on our many blessings but do you ever struggle to feel grateful? Gratitude doesn’t always come easy. Dale examines our attitudes of striving that keep us from celebrating our victories, our tendencies to live in the past or the future and miss out on the wonder of the present, and the lack of acceptance that keeps us from our coming hope, so that we can start living with authentic and abundant gratitude.
The pressure to meet the demands around us is heavy, but even more so during the Christmas season. Dale shows us how the expectation found in the voices of Christmas past, present, and future can drown out the voice of God and keep us from the Christmas that God wants. She shows us the three elements of a true celebration that will release the pressure and focus our attention on Jesus.
