The group time will then focus on applying the lessons to knowing, loving, serving and celebrating each other. The book of Nehemiah is a case study in overcoming life's challenges. As you meditate on Nehemiah's story, you will discover the hope and victory that come when you walk in God's wisdom through the challenges of life. 6 Sessions with Leader's Notes
