Talks by Marge Steinhage Fenelon

Real Forgiveness is R.A.R.E: The Four Steps to Forgiving – Do you find it difficult to forgive – truly forgive? Perhaps there’s someone who repeatedly offends you or who has hurt or harmed you. Perhaps it’s someone close to you like a parent, sibling, or spouse. Even then, forgiveness is possible. Based on her own experiences being raised by an abusive mother, Marge explains the four steps to real forgiveness and the pathway to freedom and joy.


Turning Your Sorrow into Joy: Jesus’ Promise to You – We all need a solid dose of hope in troubled times. Jesus – the Way, the Truth, and the Life – has given us that hope by promising that despite any trials we face now, one day we will rejoice.  Discover Jesus’ promise to you in this lively and uplifting presentation and allow him to turn your sorrow into joy.
