Crown & Sword is a study tool for women to deepen their understanding of how to BE who they were created to be and then DO what they were created to do.
Doing the spiritual work detailed in this curriculum will equip any woman with God’s Truth and enable her to be successful through the different seasons of life.
The content of Crown & Sword is based on 2 Timothy 1:7, which says: “God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.”(NLT)
It’s a four-part curriculum that challenges the reader to examine both the Scripture and herself as it defines each aspect of 2 Timothy 1:7. The book’s four sections focus on the spirit of fear, of power, of love, and of discipline.
There are 6-8 chapters in each part of the curriculum. Each chapter includes an introduction to a concept, which is followed with a number of “Digging Deeper” prompts. These prompts encourage the reader to examine the Scripture and then practically apply the truth to herself.
Crown & Sword is an introduction to important concepts that a woman needs to build a strong foundation for a successful Spiritual life. It is also a fantastic refresher for any seasoned believer!
The material is versatile and can be used in numerous ways. Leaders, teachers, or small group facilitators can use this curriculum as lesson plans; mentors can use it to provoke intentional and productive conversations; or an individual can use the material on her own to further her understanding of both God and herself.
Doing this spiritual training will prepare women to live life victoriously!

Part 1: Balancing Clay Mission: Renounce the spirit of fear There is no fear in the Spirit that God has given us. In part one, we will identify some of the things that trigger fear. We will also establish the truth of who God has made us to be as the truth that reigns in us, thus dethroning and renouncing fear in our lives.
Part 2: Be Powerful Mission: Participate in the spirit of power God has given us power and authority in Christ. Here we will learn how to participate, practically and actively, by exercising that power in our lives.
Part 3: Intimately Entwined with the Trinity Mission: Embrace the Royal Title In the Trinity, we have been given intimate relationships. Through those relationships, we’ve been given a crown that represents a royal title. Embracing these relationships is crucial to our spiritual victory.
Part 4: The Disciplined Warrior Mission: Engage in the battle We must respond to the call God has put on our lives with the authority and power with which He has graced us. Let’s put our hands to the work. May God’s purpose for us be lived out to the fullest!
