Create a Culture of Grace – in Your Home, in Your Church, and in Your Community. Come, rest in the power of God’s love. Learn about the grace that can change a culture. Celebrate your role in sharing this love with those who desperately need it.

Come spend time with other wives of pastors in the Nebraska District to be renewed through His Word, to be refreshed through laughter, and to be reminded of the freedom that is yours through Jesus Christ.

Our human hearts want perfection from ourselves and everyone around us. We want complete control. We want to earn a reputation as the very best. We really want the world to call us valuable.

But our souls want so much more. We need healing, restoration, to know our true value, and to be loved completely. We need God’s grace—and so do our people.

Let’s look at Ephesians 3:14-21 together. Let’s feel God’s power that is already at work in us. Let’s celebrate how gloriously wide and long and high and deep Christ’s love is.

Through this love, God can change the culture in your home, your church, and your community into a culture of grace.

Join us as we come together to rest, to learn, and to celebrate the transforming love of Christ.

Our Speaker-Bible Study leader, Christina Hergenrader, joins us all the way from Houston, Texas! Author of Family Trees & Olive Branches, Christina has penned ten books (so far!), five fiction and five non-fiction. Christina says, “With each new assignment, I fell more in love with my Savior – and my calling to spread His message to the world.” She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Education and her Master’s degree in Creative Writing. Christina is an outstanding educator, author, and speaker, and an alumni of CUNE (even named Teacher of the Year and Young Alumnus by her alma mater!). When she’s not writing, Christina loves spending time with her husband and four children, teaching, speaking to women’s groups, traveling, photography, and prayer.  Learn more at http://christinasbooks.com/
