Click here to register.
Mary Glynn Peeples, a wife and mother of three, has learned to rise above the stresses that come with daily life. She will focus on Proverbs 4:23. Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. She will talk about how to control the issues of your life; how to grow from the problems in and around you; and how to enjoy each day in spite of the these circumstances.

Mary Glynn shares her insights of hope and joy with thousands through her speaking engagements and her book,“All We Like Sheep.” From God’s perspective we are all like sheep, and we can understand ourselves through a study of the characteristics of sheep. This book, which has sold over 50,000 copies, is a practical guide for living the Christian life.  By reading this book in our Presbyterian Women fall book study, we will learn specific ways to understand and accept ourselves better and develop more satisfactory relationships with God and others to create consistency and balance in our daily lives. Registration for this event is coming soon. The book, “All We Like Sheep,” can be purchased in our church book store.
