As women in God's church, we have a unique and important role, a beautiful calling to teach younger women and grow in relationship with one another through our bond in Christ. This calling gives us great opportunities to influence others and show the world our love. However, life gets busy and we often fail to live up to and remember the importance of this calling.
Some of us come from a generation that values everything an apron represents, while others come from a fast-paced, individualized "latte" culture. We will look at the story of Mary and her older cousin, Elizabeth, to glean some wisdom from the relationship they shared. We will also talk about practical ways that we can grow and strengthen intergenerational relationships both individually and as a church family.
Amanda is the art-loving, coffee-drinking, garden-planting, travel-enthusiast wife to her best friend, a guy named Boo Scott, and mom to 3 quirky kids who she adores, Evie, Ever and Forest, and 100 lb Bernedoodle Bennie. She is an Okie at heart, but recently moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where her husband preaches for the National Park church of Christ and where their family enjoys exploring, hiking, mountain biking and serving the church and community. She has loved being a photographer for 15 years since graduating from Freed-Hardeman University, but her true passion is for the ministry opportunities she has with her husband, especially getting to listen to and offer support to younger ladies and sharing with them the incredible love and peace of Jesus.
