Celebrate Easter with us! LEARN MORE

A book club for women.

The Shared Shelf is a book club for women through FAC, meeting every 3rd month* to discuss a non-fiction (and an occasional fiction) book written by a female author, either Christian or secular. The vision for this group is to offer a safe place to build critical biblical thinking as a filter for the information we take in, to ask hard questions of each other, and the authors whose books we’ll read.

Get Connected!

Every 3rd week of the month (no meetings in December, June, July, or August). Please have the book read beforehand to participate in the discussion:

Next Discussion Dates

  • In-Person: Wednesday, April 19; 7:00-8:30 pm, Southbend Room/Online
  • Online: Thursday, April 20; 7:00-8:30 pm; Zoom details provided closer to date 

There’s no cost, but you’ll need to source your own copy of the book.

Book: Don’t Overthink It: Making Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing and Bring More Joy to Your Life by Anne Bogel (Themes: battling indecision)

Overview: We’ve all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn’t feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we’re wired to do, something we just can’t escape. But is it? Anne Bogel’s answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life.

Available on Amazon and the Calgary Public Library.

“By wisdom the Lord founded the earth;.
by understanding he created the heavens.
By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth,
and the dew settles beneath the night sky.
My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment.
Hang on to them,
for they will refresh your soul.
They are like jewels on a necklace.
They keep you safe on your way,
and your feet will not stumble.”
(Proverb 3:19-23)
