This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana.
From the moment Eve chose to live life on her own, women have sought out a myriad of identities, continuing to weave false fig leaf cover-ups that fail to satisfy. We’ve looked for a way to define ourselves, to think about our impact, to silence the nagging sense that we’re alone and deeply broken. Apart from their own record of good accomplished, where can women find a lasting identity that will satisfy the deep need to be in relationship with a loving, welcoming Father?
People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
