Proverbs: Making Life Work


MakingLifeWork960x295

Life is hard and it can often feel overwhelming!

We can feel  busy, tired, stressed out, and stretched to the limit.   We can feel like we are being pulled in every direction-family, work, children, finances and relationships.  We are running long on “to do’s” and short on time.

When life  feels this way, you need true wisdom to find balance.  Unfortunately this is hard to find!

The world overflows with information, data and knowledge, but you find precious little wisdom. Wisdom is what you desperately need when faced with a challenge at work, with your finances, a problem at home with your kids or in your marriage, a conflict with friends or a crisis within yourself.

However, there is hope!  Learn about this wisdom in our 9 week series Making Life Work!

The book of Proverbs was written to help us learn and understand godly wisdom.  It helps us see clearly the consequences of different courses of action and to point us in the direction God desires for us to live.  Each week,CrossWay Church will explore what the book of Proverbs teaches on individual topics that are important to you -work, family, friends, relationships, money, time (priorities), faith, etc.!
