Empowered coffee talk


To add another amazing topic to our empowered women’s coffee talk series, this month, we talk all about BOUNDARIES! This is crucial, when I heard it was boundaries I thought to myself, doesn’t it ever coincide with empowerment! When we are able to create boundaries and not be fearful of them it’s quite liberating and most definitely empowering!

I can not WAIT to hear from you all and become inspired and empowered yet again. We had an awesome turnout last month, hope to keep the momentum going. Bring a friend if you wish, all I ask is we purchase a beverage from the cafe as they have generously reserved our spot for us in the back 🙂

What is Wisdom and why is it so important?

As women in our culture, we are faced with so many decisions on a daily basis and so much conflicting information about what is right or appropriate. From friendships to desires, emotions, money, parenting and sexuality (and even our speech!)… Every part of our lives are affected by our decisions… so how do we learn how to make the right ones?

We are all aware that life can throw us curveballs. We can end up facing unpredictable and often unavoidable circumstances. In response to these lifestyle challenges, many of us are drawn to finding “quick fixes” or end up following incomplete or misguided advice instead of using proper discernment and seeking to develop successful living principles.

Even though we may be smart and have a wealth of information, we can still become confused or deceived and make the wrong decisions. The benefit of Wisdom is that it teaches us how to synthesize all the information we have so that we can begin to make better, proper and more accurate decisions.

The Women of Wisdom Circle is a place which seeks to foster a renewing of the mind while offering practical advice and teaching universal wisdom based on established biblical principles. Together, we will create an intimate and safe space intended to spark good conversation about topical issues and where vulnerability and accountability are valued and encouraged.

Gatherings will be held once a month on Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. We invite all participants to submit examples of issues from their daily lives which they would like to address with greater Wisdom.

Group size will be limited for each meeting and participants will be registered via RSVP on a first come, first served basis.

There is no registration fee for these meetings but donations are gratefully accepted.

For more information or to submit your discussion topic ideas, email Tracy at

We look forward to seeing you soon!
