Study Synopsis: In this six-session video Bible study, New York Times bestselling author, Lysa Terkeurst offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living between Eden and eternity.

Life often looks very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. At times like these, it’s easy to feel disappointed and disillusioned and to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. So what do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, his lack of intervention hurtful, and his promises doubtful?

Lysa understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In this video Bible study (guide sold separately), Lysa invites small groups and individuals into her own journey of faith. With vulnerability and honest humor, she helps us:

  • Learn how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
  • Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
  • Discover the secret of remaining trustful when God seems to give us more than we can handle.
  • Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us for what’s next.
  • Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God’s truth.

Study Synopsis: In Find Your People, bestselling author Jennie Allen offers practical solutions for creating true community, the kind that’s crucial to our mental and spiritual health.

In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. But so many are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness.

In this book, bestselling author Jennie Allen draws on fascinating insights from science and history, timeless biblical truth, and vulnerable stories from her own life to help you:

  • Overcome the barriers to making new friends and learn to initiate with easy-to-follow steps.
  • Find simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations.
  • Understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them.
  • Identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need.
  • Learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the type of friends you’ve always wanted.
