Come to me. Get away with me  and you’ll recover your life.
- Matthew 11:28

Are you often so busy you can hardly find time to breathe, much less deal with the people and challenges that fill your days? Guest speaker and author Lucinda Secrest McDowell will encourage us to evaluate all the places in our lives where we can make space for God. 

Guest Speaker: Lucinda Secrest McDowell 

Lucinda Secrest McDowell is a graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Furman University, and the author of twelve books, including Dwelling Places, Live These Words, and Amazed by Grace. Some of Cindy’s favorite things are tea parties, good books, ancient prayers, country music, musical theatre, and her family. She blogs weekly at encouragingwords.net
