Love and Sex Addiction in Women Are Real
Do you find yourself entering one relationship after another only to be left feeling unfulfilled, lonely and abandoned? Have you ever struggled with emotional or sexual infidelity, inappropriate online activity, one night stands or other harmful behaviors that disrupt your relationships and affect your own physical, emotional, and spiritual well being? Well, you are not alone. Many women thirst for connection and acceptance, unable to develop the true intimacy they so desperately desire. They move from one partner or fantasy to another, seeking to sooth the pain in their hearts.
Beauty For Ashes is a group for women who have attempted to use love, romance, sex or other harmful behaviors to fill the emptiness inside. This constant search for connection and acceptance has often damaged their relationships and diminished their sense of self worth and value. Beauty For Ashes provides a safe environment in which women can break free from the bonds of denial, shame, guilt and fear.
We pray that the Holy Spirit would empower you to join us in taking that first step out of the pit of despair and into the loving arms of your heavenly Father. Come and experience the love and acceptance of other women who understand your struggles and can help walk you through your healing journey. We use the Pure Desire for Women: Eight Pillars to Freedom From Love Addition and Sexual Issues workbooks by Diane Roberts. The workbooks may be purchased at the Rock Pile Bookstore for $20. This will be a one year curriculum. There are limited spaces available and the class will be closed after the third session.
Where: The Rock Church Point Loma Campus, Room 351
When: Tuesdays 6:30-8:30, beginning January 20, 2015

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...to comfort all who mourn in Zion, to bestow on them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for the spirit of despair.
