Relationships

12 Episodes

Women have many relationships and roles. We are friends, neighbors, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, co-workers, and most importantly, children of God. Watch and listen to other women discuss how they live out the roles that God has given them. A series of 12 videos from well-known presenters will help you explore the many facets and responsibilities of your own relationships.
In a group setting, this series offers women the chance to attend meetings with no preparation. Just show up to view the 20 minute presentation, and spend the next 30-40 minutes sharing, laughing, and maybe even crying with sisters in Christ as everyone helps each other to more faithfully live out the relationships that God has given them.
The speakers help us examine our relationship with: our bodies, our husbands, our friends, our young children, our teenagers, our adult children, our aging selves, Mary, Jesus, the Bible, the saints, and even technology.
For fifty women or five. Parish center or living room. These presentations can be used in a weekly or monthly meeting format. They can also be used for a weekend retreat or as break-out sessions at a conference.
There is no recommended order, but it is suggested that out of the last three (Relationship with Your Young Children, Your Teens, or Your Adult Children) you only show the one(s) particular to your group, or you can split into groups and let the women choose one to watch and discuss of most interest to them.
Of course, each session can also be viewed by individuals to prayerfully search and examine those relationships in one’s own life.
