“Whatsoever is true” comes from Philippians 4:8, about how we are to think on the truth of the Word and let the Word be our guide in understanding and leading our daily living. Tuesdays in June and July we will explore some of the lies that we as women fall prey to, and we will counter them with the truth of the Word.

God calls David “a man after my heart.” What a significant stamp of approval, yet we know David wasn’t perfect. While we see the many mistakes of David, we know that he loved God and lived for Him.

Click here for complete details, and invite a friend to join you!
