This is Week 6 of an 11-week series of posts for our Awaken Women’s Retreat. Please click on Awaken 2016 or check the tab on our page for more information on our annual retreat in Ruidoso, NM.
This week, our featured breakout speaker is Pastor Shelly Swann.
In addition to being a main speaker at Awaken, she’ll also be leading a panel discussion on marriage. The title of her class is “I Do…Still.” The information for her session is, “Join Pastor Shelly and a panel of women for a discussion on how to have a successful marriage and overcome challenges during the different stages of life. There will also be a Q&A time during the session.”
We asked Pastor Shelly to elaborate a little bit on her session and this is what she had to say…
AW: Pastor Shelly, you’re leading a session on Marriage at Awaken. Without giving away too much of your message, tell the ladies a little more about your topic.
SS: After accepting Jesus, the decision to get married is the most important one you will make in your life. Most women either are already married or desire to be married so to know how to be successful in this relationship will be a huge benefit.
AW: Why do you think this topic is important to women?
SS: There are many challenges that women will face in the different seasons of married life and it’s important to know how to handle those challenges in ways that benefits your marriage and not tears it apart. We will hear from women who have walked thru some of these difficulties in their marriages and the lessons they learned along their journey.
AW: What do you hope women will take away from your class?
SS: The take-away for attendees will be hope for their own marriages to be better, strength to not give up and tools to help them be the wife that God has called them to be
