The goal of The Power of Blessing is to not only learn how to receive blessings, but also how to give blessings to others. This study is divided into three sections, which offers participants something for their head, heart and hand. Section one gets straight to the point and explains what Blessing is and why it matters in our life. Section two goes for the heart and uses the power of stories to paint a clear picture of what Blessing looks like at every stage of life and how to recover the blessings we have missed along the way. Section three shows us how to apply Blessing to our important relationships. Based solidly on the Bible, The Power of Blessing teaching materials provide a picture of how the principle of Blessing is directly connected to our emotional health and spiritual success. Join facilitator Sheena Hall for this eight-week class beginning Tuesday, October 22 and get ready to learn a little more history about blessings in the Old Testament, as well as how they apply to us in the New Testament.

Sunday, December 15 outside of Circuit Writers Bookstore
8:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
The Angel Gift was created out of the need to give something meaningful and purpose driven to the children of my close friends living out of state. Without being physically in their lives I wanted to gift them something that would help shape who they would become rather than gift another baby bottle or blanket. As I researched, I could not find a baby gift that would bring them closer with God and give them a tangible object to remind them of His love every day. The Angel Gift was born to fill that void and create a new, Christian market space for baby gifts. Since its inception I realized it is helping children in ways I had not previously imagined offering hope and comfort to children that are suffering from an illness, loss of a loved one, experiencing their parents divorcing or having anxiety. The sweetest part of our children’s book set is that we give 1 in 10 to a child battling cancer through Caroline Duncan, leukemia survivor in Southlake. She is currently in first grade at Old Union Elementary.
