Welcome to the Nora Lee Bethea Legacy Training for Young Women. Legacy is defined as something that is handed down through family. My mother, Nora Lee Bethea left a legacy behind that consisted of Love, Faith and Charity through God; and through this ministry, I chose to honor her by sharing her teaching with our next generation of young women. "Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Her children rise up, and call her blessed". We were blessed to have her as our mother. We honored her in life, and now I will honor her in death by continuing the legacy that she started.
This training class is a life lessons class incorporating Bible Study and self-development, created for young women who are searching for direction and seeking a way to come to the Lord as part of their spiritual Journey . Spiritual growth is about reaching out to and connecting with your inner soul and by doing so, we become more harmonious with life around us. My mother taught her family how to love God first above all things and then to love your neighbor as yourself. I have treasured my mother's teaching, following in her footsteps in teaching my own children the way of the Lord.
In this training class, we will not only have bible studies, but we will learn to develop our own feelings of inner power and strength through powerful lessons of love and faith found in biblical scripture. We will work with you to encourage the building of strong family relationships that will lead to happier lives. Family is the foundational institution of society ordained by God. You will also learn to take more responsibility for your own actions. Choices and Consequences, once learned, changes outcomes.
You will come to the full understanding that God intended for couples to leave their families and create whole new ones with each other; to become one unit and rely on each other. This is what my mother taught me to do and I pass on that teaching as part of her wonderful legacy. "Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins."
There are many different ways in which you can look into your own inner being. For we delight in the law of God, in our inner being, and we look forward to the Holy Spirit's help. Because God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come".
Your spiritual life will determine your character, your perspective, and the way you relate to the world. Before moving on to create personal success and growth, you must first understand the value of feeding your spirit. "Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation".
The lessons you will learn here will help you to discover more of who God is and how He made you. It is a great start into understanding who you are and who you will become. "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them". Remember this, "you are God's temple and God's Spirit dwells in you".
Question #1 - What are you going to do with the life that you were given?
Question #2 - How will you build your house, on the Rock or on sand?
Ponder those 2 questions and join us in our study. This class is open to all women but it is especially important for young girls and young women. Please invite a young person to take this course. I know it will change their lives.
