Some of us don't respond well to failure. When that happens, we sometimes choose paths that are less risky. Using the biblical character of Jeremiah and the teachings of Jesus, Matt Miofsky shows that truly following Christ means learning how to fail and fail well.

We all know the feeling. We take a leap, only to land flat on our face. Just when our plan appears to be perfect, it falls apart. Life's failures and disappointments can make it difficult to move forward; how do we pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off?
Author and pastor Matt Miofsky examines the life of Jeremiah, whose failed pursuits are described in more detail and depth than with any other prophet. Even though God set him apart to speak to the nation of Israel, Jeremiah's attempts to fulfill his calling were met with ridicule, punishment, and suffering. But through it all, God never left his side.
The story of "the weeping prophet"; has much to teach us about trusting God during life's most trying times.
Additional components for a five-week study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD featuring author and pastor Matt Miofsky.
