What women are saying about Loved from the Beginning
“I feel cared for. I go throughout my week giving to other people and caring for their children and no one ‘cares’ for me. When I come to the group, I feel like I am coming to a place where I can be myself and I don’t have to worry about anything but taking care of myself. I feel at home. I feel safe to be true to myself in front of other people.” T.C.

“I felt like we were all there together and no one was better than any one else. I’ve always been afraid to open up and share what I don’t know because people look down on you when you’re not familiar with scripture or a song. But here I didn’t have that fear at all. There was conversation. It wasn’t like I had to to sit there and I couldn’t ask questions.” – C.H.

Loved from the Beginning is a women’s leadership group founded on the guiding principles of Christ to love one another as we have been loved by Him. In this group we listen to one another, learn from one another, and support one another in reaching the goals that God sets before us. We are filled up to be sent out and serve. Deeply loved by God and having responded to that Love, we turn from our selfish ways to give what we receive freely from Him. That is, His mercy and His grace.
This group is a resource for women who want to strengthen their relationship with God, become more aware of their purpose in life, make meaning of their life experiences, and use those experiences to connect with other believers for the enhancement of God’s people and His Kingdom community.
Loved from the Beginning will strengthen you to do four key things:
- Shift your perspective from “what’s wrong with me” to “what’s happening with me”
- Improve your ability to engage in problem solving as God’s solution
- Enhance your marketable and transferable career skills
- Nurture your creative ideas and develop plans to collaborate with others
