Two Programs Explore Faith, Women of the Bible

Byline: Nancy Luebke Daily Herald Correspondent

Soul food for women will be served up at two churches this coming week. Lombard Christian Reformed Church invites women of all ages to a program featuring author and speaker Valerie Bell at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the church, 2020 S. Meyers Road, Lombard. Bell's topic is "A Well-Tended Soul: Staying Beautiful for the Rest of Your Life," based on her book of the same title.

For 10 years she was co-host of the daily radio show, "Chapel of the Air," with her husband, Steve, an executive vice president at Willowcreek Church in Barrington.

"Valerie uses her own experiences to help women shape the world around them with authentic spirituality, live deeper lives, build confidence, joy and charisma for the years ahead and explore the benefits of aging," said Kooima.

After seeing Bell speak and reading her book, Kooima invited Bell to speak at the church.

"Valerie Bell is a cancer survivor and has raised kids, things that women can relate to. She is now middle aged, and she is touching on things that middle aged women are thinking about," Kooima said. …
