    How to Start Reading the Bible (4 Days)
    Let’s be honest: we know it’s a good idea to read the Bible, but it’s pretty difficult to even know where to start. Over the next four days, we’ll learn about why the Bible’s important, how to start a daily reading habit, and how it applies to our lives today.

    Discerning the Voice of God (7 Days)
    Join Priscilla Shirer for this 7-day reading plan in Discerning the Voice of God as she explores the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience.

    Moving Mountains: Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority
    By John Eldredge

    Is there a right way to pray? Why doesn't God always say yes? Is he listening? Countering the idea that prayer's purpose is to seek divine intervention, Eldredge shows that it's actually about partnering with God. Discover your role in breaking sin's strongholds, bringing about healing, and more as you claim your authority as God's child!
