As with a marathon runner, the secret to winning the race lies not in trying harder, but in training consistently---training with the spiritual disciplines. The disciplines are neither taskmasters nor an end in themselves. Rather they are exercises that build strength and endurance for the road of growth. The fruit of the Spirit are the signposts along the way.
Paved with humor and sparkling anecdotes, The Life You've Always Wanted small group kit is an encouraging and challenging approach to a Christian life that's worth living, a life on the edge that fills an ordinary world with new meaning, hope, change, and joy.
