So Long Insecurities: Building Confidence in a World of Doubt

Insecurities get in our heads, mess with our emotions, and lie to us, telling us we’re not good enough. We can get sucked into the comparison trap while scrolling social media. We can get down on ourselves over something someone said to us. We have all experienced the voice of our inner critic and have dealt with feelings of self-doubt and fear that we just don’t measure up. But we’re here to break the cycle!

This class will help you develop a whole new perspective and guide you through building confidence and security. We will also explore what Scripture says about our value and worth and learn how to move towards more joy as we walk with Jesus. Through thoughtful teaching and insights from our speakers, we will take you from a place of self-doubt and worry, and help you gain a stronger sense of self. Together, we will examine the negative thought patterns that often hold us trapped in our insecurities and learn how to break free from those patterns.

Led by Mental Health Therapist​ Amanda Barnett, Pastor Julie Burleson, as well as Spiritual Director Kelli Jensen, this class will draw upon their experience, wisdom, and education to provide helpful strategies for letting go of insecurities and embracing self-worth. You will walk away from this class feeling more confident and secure in who God made you to be.

Prepare for some real talk as we dive in to discuss negative thought patterns that often hold us trapped in our insecurities and learn how to break free from those patterns. Gain some practical tips and biblical wisdom on how to nurture confidence and security, identify our God-given value, and learn how to deal with doubts when they arise.

At Collide we strive to live authenticity, telling our stories as they truly are, broken and messy, and invite women to do the same.

You’re going to want to come to this class with a teachable spirit, a hunger to learn, your favorite notebook, and a pen with lots of ink so you can jot down all the revelations, action items, and realizations you have as you listen to our expert teachers and chat with other like-minded women.
