 “Fearless Joy, Joyful Fear”

A  One Day Retreat based on the Old Testament book of Nehemiah

Saturday, February 9, 2019

9:00 am-3:00 pm

 Beaver Dam Campus Auditorium

 

Nehemiah felt God’s call to leave his position as the cupbearer and to go rebuild the wall around Jerusalem, but he faced discouragement from the moment he started working. Those who rose up against him were divisive and relentless.  But he did not back down.  By walking in God’s strength, he was able to possess fearless joy and joyful fear. We too may face discouragement, fear and personal attacks when God calls us.   Nehemiah didn’t allow fear to sidetrack him from his mission. God will show us how to walk the same way, keeping our eyes focused on him, guarding against discouragement, so we too may be filled with fearless joy and joyful fear.

 

Speaker: Marie Monville, a speaker and author who describes herself as an overcomer, believer, wife, and mom who is forever in love with Jesus.

When all other lights go out, He still shines!”  This became the anthem to Marie’s life when on October 2, 2006, her then-husband made a decision to hold an Amish schoolhouse hostage, shooting ten schoolgirls, five of them fatally, forever changing life as she knew it.  On her darkest day, Marie simply chose to believe that HE IS. This act of faith radically propelled her into a future she could not have hoped for or imagined. In the years since, God continues to unfold his beautiful plan of redemption and restoration over her family.

Marie loves to tell the story of forgiveness, healing, and restoration God has done in her life.  She is living proof that God can bring beauty out of brokenness, and Marie loves to share that message with others.
She ministers the truth of God’s love: it is deep enough to heal any wound, strong enough to break all bondage, and it brings life to the broken and light to those in darkness. By cultivating worship in the deepest places of her heart and releasing it before His throne, Marie has found a way of being “transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory” (2 Cor 3:18).

Cost is $35.  Registration: January 13-27 or until sold out.
