Undivided Women introduces our next study, A Winning Warrior. It's time to suit up for the battle that is waging war in our country. This study is written by one of our co-founders, Margaret Norris Kennedy, and will teach us, from now until the election, what it means to put on the armor of God. This isn't about who you want to win the election...it's about knowing that we, as sisters in Christ, are prepared to fight spiritually against the devil's schemes. We are not fighting for victory but from victory. Spiritual warfare is real, and it's time to put our armor on and declare that the enemy has already been defeated.
