Past events for this topic: New Life Fall Women's Retreat (Waupaca WI)



Beth's personal, ongoing study of First Corinthians 13 spanning twenty-five years gives her a rich and biblically sound basis for teaching on the topics listed in the Holy Bible's "Love Chapter": Love is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, keeps no record of wrong, does not delight in evil, rejoices in the truth, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, never fails.

She is well-versed in these topics in regards to (1) God's love for us, (2) the love God desires from us and works in our hearts, and (3) the love God wants us live out in our relationships with others. Not only is this love the foundational subject for all of her writings, it is the love she seeks to live in Christ Jesus.

Discuss your topic needs in this area with Beth to decide on a talk supporting your vision of God's purposes for your group or event.
