Women's Bible Study - Feb. 12, 2020
The Women's Bible Study ladies were delighted to have Laura Seifert visit their last class focused on the 23rd Psalm.
The study was the work of Laura Seifert, a Friendswood native, and daughter of Karlynn Sharp a Good Shepherd member. Laura is a Bible teacher, speaker and founder of the YES Ministries and author of FORGIVE, FREEDOM IS WORTH IT. Laura first told us how the 23rd Psalm series was prepared and filmed and then we discussed what we had taken away from her teaching.
Our next classes begin on February 26, for a Lenten study based on the Living Compass booklet, LIVING WELL THROUGH LENT 2020. We meet at 10:30 in Shepherd's Hall.
