Dream Again with Joan
Welcome, my name is Joan Glover Straughter. I have been a member at COTR for 14 years. This will be my third semester leading a Small Group. My first two times last year, I was battling tremendous pain from grief, then later betrayal from a coworker. It was hard to concentrate and to be honest, I wanted to give up on leading the Group. I am grateful to God for the strength He provided me with, as well as an amazingly supportive Team Leader Debbie Bass & the phenomenal women in the group who encouraged me to press forward as I would learn how to Praise Him in my pain! I learned in that difficult season how to be transparent and open about my trials to others, I did NOT know! I learned to trust God even in my tears! Leading the first two groups titled, "Don't Limit God" & "Pray First" were a great comfort I needed to help me grow in my Christian walk. Now I get to learn how to Dream Again with others!
