Do you sometimes feel stuck, discouraged, or directionless? Maybe life has not turned out quite how you imagined it would. No matter the circumstances, the greatest joy in life comes from discovering God’s plan for our lives. When we lean into our true identity and move forward in His unique call we find a deep wellspring of contentment, hope, and purpose. Join us as we put feet to the ground and travel toward this hope-filled destination! Women age 16+ welcome. Cost $20 (includes workbook, continental breakfast and lunch). Scholarships available by calling the church office at 208-676-0632.

Katie is a regular writer at the Coffee + Crumbs blog and a contributor to The Magic of Motherhood (Zondervan, 2017). Her writing has also been featured at Motherly, Grit & Virtue, and Pursuit Community.

Workshop: Speaking Gospel Language to our Family.

Traci Wright

Traci considers herself an outgoing introvert, which to her means she probably talks too much and then needs plenty of alone time to reenergize. She loves to cook, hike, travel, anything in the sun; in the winter, she’s mostly by a cozy fire with her family or a book, or maybe cooking something yummy. She loves a bit of adventure, a lot of peaceful activities and reflection, and meaningful conversation with family and friends.

She is married to the wonderful, and a little bit crazy, Pastor Rodney. They both come from pastor’s families and have been married 28 years. They have three young adult children, who seem to be in and out of living with them, so they have only had a few months of empty nesting so far. They came to CDA to help start Lake City Church 16 years ago and they love living here.

Since its’ opening five years ago, she has worked at the Union Gospel Mission Center for Women and Children as a recovery counselor and Program Coordinator for women seeking long term support to leave a life of addiction and homelessness. What an incredible experience it has been. It seems that every new stage God leads her through shows her something new about herself, others, and her growing connection to Christ. She is so grateful.
