Beacons Study Group
Mondays @ 6:15p.m. @ The Hub.
We will be exploring and sharing from the book It’s Not Supposed to be Like This by Lysa Terkuerst. 
Lysa offers fresh biblical insights to get you through daily disappointments and life-altering loss.
In God, we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle between our faith and our feelings.
Disappointments lay between our expectations and our experiences. Watch a video to learn more.
We will not be doing the full study guide and daily homework, but using it as an excellent reference for our study and discussion. Contact Tina Gosselink ( for more information.
