Resources for Women from the First Respond Conference


The first Respond Women’s Retreat was held two weeks ago, and over 230 women took part in numerous teaching sessions, worship, and prayer. It was an amazing weekend of encouragement among one another and challenging truth from the words of scripture. Some of the breakout sessions focused on Biblical submission in marriage, child discipline, and teaching doctrine in the home.  Some of the podcasts are already posted here, and keep looking for more to come. See the list below of book recommendations and teaching notes by the session leaders, and allow God to challenge you to Respond to Him with full submission and joy!
