Welcome to Bold & Brave, Winter Semester!
Bold & Brave began as a mandate to me (Candace), from God. He dropped the vision for it, even the name for it, into my heart at a conference, and I just couldn’t let it go. Since then, we’ve become a group that encourages each other, prays for each other, and challenges each other to move forward in our faith and understanding of God’s Word.
I’ve become very passionate about knowing God’s Word over the past few years, and I want that for you too! It’s unlocked countless truths for me, challenged me to do things I never thought was possible, and made my life better in so many ways. I am Bold & Brave today, because of the Word. 100%! So, in this group, I want to teach you how to study it, know it, live by it, and apply it to your life. For me, the Word has always shaped my worldview and self-view. As it should!
The first thing that I had to learn on my journey to being bold & brave, was how to be a leader, not a complainer.
I had to own my part in how people treated me.
I had to choose to make my own table, not pine for tables I’m not invited to.
I had to stop giving myself permission to have self-centered discontentment.
I had to model behavior that I wished to see in those around me.
I had to make the decision to serve those around me.
To get the most out of this group:
Commit to showing up every week.
Do the assignments, and let your curiosity take you further.
