She is the best-selling author of three books, her speaking events sell out within hours, she is interviewed in TIME magazine, Oprah Winfrey and even on the cover of this month's Costco Connections (the true test that you have arrived!).
I think it is more than hype. Brené's research has sparked a global conversation about what it means to live wholeheartedly, with courage, vulnerability and creativity. More than self-help, this is the necessary work of the soul and people are often amazed at how well her work integrates with the wisdom, insight and teaching of the scriptures.
That is why I'm excited that we have several opportunities to explore the discoveries of Brené Brown and expand our own understanding of the abundant, wholehearted life that Christ offers.
You can choose courage or you can choose comfort, but you cannot have both
The Daring Way
Beyond what you can get from just her books and talks, Brené put together an intensive training workshop that digs deep into the personal work necessary to embody wholehearted living. She spent time personally training and certifying instructors who could present her material- people like my friend, Rich Gantenbein. He is bringing that workshop to New Hope on October 9-10 (he'll also be preaching on October 11).
Its going to be a powerful weekend. Bring a friend, your spouse and even your entire LIFE Group! The cost is $35 and you can register online or at church.
