Women in the Word

Wednesdays at 6:30 PM

A Women’s Study Group on Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith.

What We Are Studying

Ladies, join us on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm as we study God’s Word with a Bible Study called “Teach Me to Want” by author and bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel


We all want things: certain relationships, just the right job, affirmation from others, a life full of passion and purpose. Contemporary culture says to go after desire, pursue your “I want” list ruthlessly. Christianity seems to send a different message: Wanting is sinful and selfish. Faith is about obedience and sacrifice.


How do we reconcile the longings in our hearts with the God we’re called to follow?


In five sessions, based on her 2015 Christianity Today Book of the Year Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith, author and Bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel takes women on a brave journey through their many desires, longings, and ambitions. Featuring real-life stories of women wrestling with their desires—Jen offers insight from her own life, dives deep into Scripture and asks what it means to desire as a Christian:

  • Is it true that the hardest, least desirable choice is the most obviously holy?
  • Is it true that personal desire must never be trusted?


Jen will show biblically how it’s not only OK to name and voice our desires—it’s actually holy to. When we freely let God know our desires and allow them to be informed by Scripture and re-formed by our spiritual practices, we’ll discover a God more loving and generous than we can ever imagine.


There is no materials fee. This is a video and discussion series.

Location: 3rd Floor Conference Room
