Publisher's Description

In the six-session small group bible study, The Life You’ve Always Wanted, John Ortberg guides you and your group through the spiritual disciplines and teaches you how they can transform your spiritual life.

What does true spiritual life really look like? And what keeps you from living it? What can you do to pursue it?

If you’re tired of the status quo – if you suspect there’s more to Christianity than what you’ve experienced – John Ortberg invites you to join him on a road to transformation and spiritual vigor that anyone can take.

Cultivate new intimacy and confidence in prayer. Discover the freedom of secrecy. Taste the benefits of slowing life’s frenetic pace. Learn how to be guided by the Holy Spirit…and much more.

As in a marathon, the secret lied not in trying hard, but in training consistently. Proven by followers of Jesus over the centuries, the spiritual disciplines are exercises that strengthen your endurance race on the road to growth.

This Participant Guide is designed for use together with The Life You’ve Always Wanted DVD (sold separately). When used together, they provide you with a practical tool that can grow your faith.

Sessions include: 
1. It’s Morphing Time
2. Slowing Down and Celebrating
3. Praying and Confessing
4. Meditating on Scripture and Seeking Guidance
5. Practicing Servanthood, Finding Freedom
6. Going the Distance with a Well-Ordered Heart

    Jam packed with information, scripture, and insights, but at least 1 1/2 -2hrs. are necessary to cover everything in each unit.

    Great companion to Ortberg's DVD/video study on spiritual disciplines. Challenging questions and "assignments". Very helpful in growing in Christ.

    It was a very good and practical teaching. We are reviewing it now to do small groups for our church.

    I'm currently teaching this as a class at our church (with the DVD curriculum) and I'd love to give this study 5 stars because it's incredibly important and helpful for spiritual transformation, but the problem is they try to cram everything into six weeks! I wish they would redo it so each week is focused on studying one discipline instead of two. It's tough to practice the discipline of "slowing down" when we're rushing to cover prayer too!

    Ortberg will keep you laughing and crying as you learn how easy it is as an ordinary person to share your faith with everyone you meet, as well as, build discipline into your life to make you the person God intended you to be. A must read!
