Arise Workshop for Women
Arise and become all that God has purposed you to be!
Arise comes from the old English word ārīsan, which means to emerge—to come into being and arise from (or out of) conflict, uncertainty, confusion and/or difficulties. It means to take action—to stand up and move beyond your immediate circumstances.
Every woman has the potential to arise and develop her unique potential. The goal of this 7 week workshop is to position women to rise above their immediate circumstances and live extraordinary lives in spite of the difficulties that they may be experiencing.
Together, we strive to identify, understand, and overcome the relational, emotional and/or spiritual obstacles that are hindering a person’s potential.
This workshop is intensive, but it is also life changing. There are weekly sessions, a print workbook, and a detailed summary with each session. The entire workshop can be done privately or in a group session. Workbooks will be available for purchase this spring on Amazon.
Who am I?
This unique program begins with the vital question: Who am I?
This is one of the most important questions that you will ever ask yourself. Each person’s destiny is largely shaped by how he or she answers this question.
Take a moment to think about this question: Who are you? Do you consider yourself worthy of love? Are your abilities adequate? What are your desires; are they being satisfied? Do you have a vision for yourself–a goal that you are working towards? Is your life characterized more by joy or by sadness – by hope or by despair? Do you feel purposeful, or do struggle with insignificance as you journey through life?
Discovering your Potential to Be begins with an exploration of ‘who’ you are. It is a journey of self-examination that will enable you to unveil and discover your real potential self.
Week One – Ordinary Women – Extraordinary Lives
This purpose of this introductory session is to help you visualize yourself as a unique woman, who has dreams, desires, and an extraordinary potential.
Week Two – Self-Worth: Conditional or Unconditional
Week two examines the pinnacle of all questions: Who am I? The focus of this session is to explore and understand how you are viewing yourself. We will look at how perceptions of self-worth develop and how some of your perceptions might be hindering the development of your potential self. In closing, we will explore alternative foundations for healthy self-worth.
Week Three – Take Off the Mask: I Want to Be Me!
This week addresses the basic ingredients for dismantling false perceptions and images that may be separating you from your real potential self.
Week Four – Confidence without Fear
Confidence without fear addresses some basic fears that the majority of people (I would say most) experience in life (i.e.: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of death). It also looks at fear in general and offers some practical advice for confronting the fears that may be preventing you from moving forward and embracing your potential self.
Week Five – He Loves Me
Perfect love casts out all fear, and all of the commandments are built on love, but how can we embrace God’s perfect love? In this session, we will discuss—and seek to embrace—the power of knowing God’s perfect love for each of us.
Week Six – Forgiveness – Finding Freedom through Grace
Without forgiveness, we remain in bondage to our past hurts and experiences. This intense session focuses on the hurts and wounds that you have experienced as a woman. Through a powerful 10-step process of forgiveness, you will be empowered to rise above past experiences and take control of your destiny once again.
Week Seven – Breaking Free to Be Me!
We are finally here! After seven weeks of intense introspection and insights, you are equipped to move forward and embrace your potential self. We begin this session by going back to week one and exploring your dreams and desires once again. However, this time we will be compiling those dreams and desires into a comprehensive plan of action. To equip you for success, we will be discussing some of the obstacles and difficulties that you might encounter when you step out to embrace your Potential to Be. Breaking Free to Be Me is about freedom, potential, and purpose.
Week Eight – Review, Revisions and Rewrites
The last week is a time to relax and share some of the highlights from the workshop. In particular, we will briefly review some of the key points from the workshop, explore how these insights move us to revise our beliefs, thoughts, and styles of relating, and how these revisions enable us – as women – to rewrite our destiny in a model for right living that is secure and successful.

The workbook is thorough and thought provoking. I would highly recommend this study.
I had the joy of participating in Janice's Arise Workshop for Women a short time ago.
This workshop has resulted in some of the deepest growth I have experienced as a mature believer in Christ. It can be difficult to find a study program specifically designed for women that does not consist mainly of "fluff." This one definitely does not. It is daunting to face things like shame, fear, and pride and go deeply and honestly into those dark areas. Janice has put together steps for doing just that.
The Lord's handiwork is evident in the gentle, healing results I have experienced. To top it all off, this study was also very well written and researched. I would highly recommend the Arise Workshop for Women to any woman seeking a bona-fide "inner" makeover and true relief from deep-seated issues. It is a wonderful journey to take with a small group of trusted friends.
This workbook was life changing in so many ways! Thanks!
