About the Event
Polished is a network that gathers professional women to navigate career and explore faith together. We are a safe community of professional women who ask the hard questions about life and faith and work to find the answers together.
There is a season for everything in nature and that is true for you too. You'll have seasons of apparent flourishing and abundance. But we also need seasons of rest and rebuilding where blooms may lay dormant. There's one thing true about seasons: they change! What kind of season are you coming out of at work? Do you need to unplug and rest? Do you need to set boundaries or re-prioritize tasks to protect your work/life balance? Do you need to press into time with family and friends so those relationships can bloom? Whatever season is ahead for you, consider it with intention and grace. Join Polished this month as we explore the importance of changing seasons as part of flourishing.
