An invitation to Steal Away
We reclaim Biblical principles that evoke awareness, inspire change, equip and empower with resources that lead to intentional wholistic living.
COMING UP NEXT FOR STEAL AWAY WOMEN
We encourage living intentionally and integrating the five dimensions of health which promote flourishing vitality in mission and ministry. Those five dimensions are physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and financial wellness.
Expressing joy through praise and worship, laughter yoga and dancing, as well as gaining wellness even when some try to steal our joy.

The nameless bent over woman in Luke 13:10-17 demonstrates how life challenges impact all facets of our life, steals our joy, and leads to being in a survival mode rather than thriving. The Wellness Wheel is used to assess current state of health and well-being and points us to reclaiming Biblical principles.

Psalm 16.11 “You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy, in your right hand pleasures forever more.” Joy is evidence of God’s presence.
