ThriveTo bear fruit, blossom, flourish, shineWeek 1: Thrive DefinedThe first week we will spend a lot of the time getting to know each other, Miss Hope and I willintroduce our selves, share a bit of our story/ testimony, and explaining what thriving means.Thriving means to blossom, flourish, and prosper. In the greek it means to grasp. ( I will speakabout the importance of grasping what we will be learning and how to thrive we must graspand know the truth)Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with the girls how to become thriving, women ofGod. We cannot thrive or shine when we are insecure and believing lies, so this equipt classwill teach the girls who they really are, and Whose they are. We will discuss how serious it is tobelieve the lies of the enemy and what freedom it is to live in the Truth. I will share a personalstory of mine on how I lived 15 years of my life believing a lie about being ugly, stupid, andworthless. I have had serious break through-freedom and have experienced so much joy andpeace because I found out the truth of who God says I am. Christ said he came so that wewould have life and life more abundant! We cannot experience true abundant life when webelieve the lies of the enemy, so we will dig up the lies the girls have hear and believed. I willbe challenging the girls to seek after living a life of Truth, an abundant life, rich in love.Scriptures:Going over psalm 139 ( how we were created in God’s image)andephesians 4:1 ( we were chosen before the beginning of time, I will discuss how deeplyGod loves the girls and has big beautiful plans for each one of them!!

Andi will share the victories i have had over them through Christ)I will tell thegirls how the devil is a liar, he has come to kill steal and destroy: John 10:10.He has no power over us. All he can do is lie. That is why we MUST know the truth, know whowe are in Christ. Christ came and died for us all. He died so that sin would no longer havedominion over us; we are forgiven and made righteous because of Christ. I will share with thegirls the Truth’s the Lord has shown me and expound on each one. (Hopefully I will haveenough time to go over them all!) (: I will also share with the girl’s personal lies I havebelieved. And I will share the real truth about each lie.

4I have believed and the victories I have had over them through Christ. i will have each girl tellme about the lies they have believed about themselves and we will pray, chat and shine truthon the lies. At the end I will challenge the girls to recognize when a lie is being told to them.We can do that by knowing what the truth is. You see, when you study and know and graspwhat the truth is, when a counterfeit (lies from the enemy) come up, you will not believe thembecause the truth is what you know and have in your heart. I will talk a lot about John 10, andhow Jesus speaks of us as his sheep, and only listening to His voice, not any other. I will sharewith the girls what the bible says about how we have power and authority over the enemy,and how we can say a big NO!!! to the devil. I will teach them about taking every thoughtcaptive and keeping our minds on things above. With each lie I list I will share the truth of eachone with the scripture from the second week!Each lie I will go over I will explain what the bible has to say about them and the truth abouteach. I will also share a story about some of the lies I believed. I will ask the girls if any of themhave ever believed these lies and we will talk and pray. (:Here are some of the scriptures we will be going over the 4th week:the topic will be rapping up about knowing the truth about our identity in Christ and how wecan use what we know. I will teach the girls how to apply the truths into our daily lives andshow them how each girl is different, unique and beautiful in their own way. We all havedifferent gifts.( which we will be discussing about each week) But we were made to seek andlove him so it says in Acts chapter 17. I will be expressing to the girls the importance ofknowing that they are the light and salt of the earth, they have a huge purpose, and how eachgirl can show love to the world and further the kingdom. But it all starts with knowing theiridentity. (:
