By picking one word - a word to represent what you hope he can transform - and focusing with the strength and clarity of your convictions, you will see lasting, sustainable growth through His power over the course of one year.

Have you ever wondered how God changes people? Maybe it seems as if old habits never change no matter how hard you try. God desires to transform our souls. This transformation happens as we recognize that God created us to live in an interactive relationship with the Trinity. Our task is not to transform ourselves, but to stay connected with God in as much of life as possible. We will learn to connect with God through Spiritual Disciplines: solitude and silence, service and secrecy, prayer and listening, bible study, Scripture meditation, community and submission, reflection and confession, simplicity and fasting, and worship and celebration.
