CM-04 Women and Human Flourishing: Today Women Abiding, Creating, and Flourishing
Kelly Monroe Kullberg
Women in general have more options today than ever before and yet, amid so many competing voices, how might I know my truest self and my calling going forward? How does abiding relate to flourishing? Why did Jesus say of Mary as she sat at his feet, “Mary has chosen the better part”? How can we overcome losses that would prevent our thriving? How can I navigate the waves of postmodernity with Christ at the core – seeking to grow in the cultivation of the virtues to become more of the person God created me to be. Flourishing likely doesn’t happen without intentionality. Let’s take time to plan together for our best futures. This interactive, two-session seminar will seek to share successful models and principles that can help guide us into greater wholeness as we integrate new learning with our ongoing lives
