Positive Woman Connection


We had a tremendous time this past month at Positive Woman Connection. As we journey through the book of Colossians together, our lesson this month focused on three powerful verses.

Colossians 3:15-17

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

We talked about how the world’s peace is different than the peace of Christ.  We not only have peace with God through Christ, but as believers we can have a peace that passes understanding as we give our cares and worries to God through prayer. We also experience peace with each other as we allow Christ’s peace to referee our hearts.  As a result of our study, here are some questions to ponder.

Am I allowing Christ’s peace to rule my heart or do I allow my circumstances to rule my emotions?

Am I letting the word of Christ dwell richly in my life through reading it, studying it, memorizing it?

Am I allowing a thankful attitude to permeate my life?

Am I honoring God in what I do and say?

Mark your calendars for next month at PWC. The topic will be “How to get Along with those Closest to You”

Fellowship of Women


“Creating a network of support takes time, but it’s time well spent. While there are some friendships that can sustain a lack of contact, most important relationships require an investment of time and attention. Nurture your friendships…” Life Lessons for Women, Stephanie Marston

What a joy it is to join together with other women in the body of Christ.  I encourage you to seek out fellowship with other Godly women.  That’s what we do at Positive Woman Connection. We enjoy a good lunch, enjoy great fellowship and enjoy the blessing of learning from God’s word.  This month our topic is:

Tools for the Times – Experiencing Peace through Difficulties in life.

The lesson is based on Colossians 3, as we examine what it means to allow the Peace of Christ to rule our hearts in every aspect of our lives.  I hope you will join us, and bring a friend.  I will be giving a gift to each person who brings a first-timer to the study.  Come and be blessed.

Sweet Fellowship

“As soon as the love of God was shed abroad in my soul, I loved all, of whatsoever denomination, who loved the Lord Jesus in sincerity of heart.” George Whitefield

Karol, Donna, and Sharon

This past week, several of us from Positive Woman Connection had the joy of going to the Women In Christian Media event in Nashville.  It was a wonderful time to encourage and fellowship with each other as well as to hear great messages which strengthened our hearts.  You can read more about some of their stories on my Thrive blog (ThriveDontSimplySurvive.wordpress.com)

We need each other in the body of Christ!  As I was in Nashville, I was reminded of how significant it is the have dear friends who build each other up in the Lord.  The writer of Hebrews said, “Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.”

Now more than ever we need to come together in encouragement and love.  Positive Woman Connection is a point of meeting, where we can truly encourage each other.  I hope you are planning to join us for our March meeting.  Put it on your calendar now and ask the Lord to show you who you need to invite.  We all need a positive dose of encouragement from God’s word and fellowship with one another.
