Women's Ministry Theme
This theme stems from the acrostic, F.R.O.G.--Fully Rely On God, and concentrates on trusting and relying on the Lord.
I realize this theme has been around awhile and some of you have used it for VBS, but it's one that people need help with so I wanted to upload what I had on it so those wanting help could find it. I'm unable to answer all the emails:)...Julia
