“Soul Strong” 8-Week Study

A note from Lucinda Secrest McDowell

Thank you for reading my book “Soul Strong – 7 Keys to a Vibrant Life”

I am sending this 8-week study to you during a challenging time in our lives – one in which we need soul strength more than ever. These teachings were presented LIVE online March 31 – May 19, 2020 to a group of women registered for a Bible Study at Silk City Coffee of Manchester CT. They are not professional studio recordings, simply my teachings each week after the women worked through a chapter in “Soul Strong.” Thank you to Tammy Gerhard, the Silk City Bible Study director, for providing these recordings for us. Thanks also to the 50 brave women as we all learned how to do our first Zoom Study in the midst of a confusing season of our lives – you know who you are!

I’m praying for you and appreciate your feedback.

Important Guidelines for using these study resources:

  • You should have the book “Soul Strong” and work through each chapter before you listen to the teaching, otherwise it won’t make sense. You can begin Week 1 with no prior reading done.
  • Print out the NOTES before you listen to the teaching – it will help!
  • Take your time… transformation is a process, but well worth it!
  • If you know someone who would benefit from these resources, invite them to email me at LucindaSMcDowell@gmail.com and I will send them this private page link and add them to my weekly blog and occasional newsletter subscription.
  • Feel free to Join our “Soul Strong” Study Support private Facebook Group if you have comments, questions or discussion HERE.
  • I am happy to offer these study materials for FREE. However, if you would like to help support my ministry (especially the costs of maintaining a website and online presence) a Love Offering of any size would be greatly appreciated. Truly Optional.
