Full group as of 9/16/2018

CHILDCARE PROVIDED

Hello! My name is Kallie Edwards. I have been married to my husband, Scott, for ten years and we are a blended family. I welcomed two step-children into our marriage, now ages 14 and 12. Together we have two sons, ages six and four. I volunteer here at New Life in the children's ministry. I have volunteered in many different rooms so there is a good chance I have taught or taken care of your children at one point or another. Scott volunteers driving the New Life bus, providing transportation to the ladies and gentleman at the VOA so they are able to join us on Sunday mornings. We plan to meet at our house on Sunday evenings for fellowship while we discus the Sunday sermon and how it might relate to each of our lives. As a blended family life group we will also share in our struggles and victories and support each other in the joys and trials of being a blended family.

Not all of our decisions have been right, but thank goodness through the good and bad we 100% trust in God's amazing grace and love no matter what we have done and been through. With that, we welcome ALL and hope to help you know how much you are loved.

My name is Seth Morris and I am a father to Paighton (age 6) and Jordan (age 3). Our favorite things to do together are fishing, camping, swimming, and dancing. Parenthood is obviously so rewarding, but it is also extra challenging to parent on your own. I am grateful for the support system I have had through this journey and want to support others in similar situations. Desiree is the mother to Payson (8) and this is her first life group. We look forward to supporting other parents that are single, separated, or divorced.

Michelle and I have had the privilege of leading this group for the past 2 years and get new members every semester. We would love to INVITE people who are struggling with addiction and have a hard time with attending 12 step meetings. Some weeks we get deep in discussion on the Bible and others we just allow people to vent and process struggles going on in their life. I am an addict in recovery and believe having a relationship with the Lord has gotten me where I am today. If you would like an extended family and to get closer to the Lord then this is the place for you.

Maybe others see you as healthy and fit, but often you feel "too fat or too skinny." It could be that you're a great mom, but you believe too often that you're a horrible one. If any of those resonate with you, join us! This group is for women who feel they are "not ________ enough." (Fill in your space) The truth is that we are all created for a great purpose and we're amazing, even if we don't feel or believe it sometimes!

A little about me: Sooo, where to start? I say that like there's a lot to know about me. But quite honestly there's too much I am still trying to learn about myself before I can write a bunch here. As you probably just read, I'm Kylie Brown. I am 19 and I was born and raised here in Gillette. I am attending Gillette College and as a young adult I believe community is so important. I am passionate about God. I mess up at least twice a day. I love coffee. I desire to be able to lead others to a relationship with God. I enjoy meeting new people.
and I believe with my whole heart everyone has the ability to touch another's life. So with that being said, if I am able to encourage at least one person throughout these weeks, being uncomfortable was so worth it. All young adults are welcome!
