About this course

Are you ready to change your life  FOREVER?

We all think about how great it would be to have the spiritual habits in our life that would create a  deep and intimate relationship with God and become more like Jesus.

So we might make a resolution to pray more, or to give more generously, or to do more works of mercy,  or do spiritual reading, etc...

But what happens?

Unfortunately, although we make resolutions, many of us fail to change our spiritual routines, thinking that other things--like getting in shape or out of debt--is more important, or we think "Well, I'll get around to that eventually"...

Or if we do make resolutions about our spiritual lives, like praying every day, reading the Bible more, being more patient with our spouses or children, or volunteering more at our church or the local food pantry, we find that we eventually fall back into our old habits. 

Haven't you wished that you knew exactly what you needed to do to become more like Jesus?   

Oftentimes our efforts to become more like Jesus fall short simply because we don't have an accurate plan or a clear picture of what we need to do. We tend to either not know WHAT to do, or HOW to do it, or WHY we should put our spiritual life in order. In spiritual parlance, this is known as putting "First Things First." 

For the truth is that if we are attentive to putting First Things First in our lives, then everything else in our life "falls into place" and we experience purpose, peace and abundance in our lives. 

Because each of us does have a particular purpose for which God created each of us.  And when we are fulfilling this purpose, we experience peace and find our lives are filled with abundant blessings and graces. 

But this isn’t always clear to us in the midst of the daily grind.

Sometimes we need to pause, go back to the essentials, and make sure we’re doing what we need to do to achieve our God-given purpose in this life--to "become holy like our Heavenly Father is holy." In other words, to become a saint.  

You can become holy. 

You can become a saint. 

You can become more like Jesus with each and every passing day.

What's the number one thing preventing you?

Is it because you don't know WHAT to do?

Or is it you don't know HOW to do it?

Or is it because you don't know WHY you should do it?

With all the essentials in one place, this step-by-step guide will help you jumpstart your spiritual life and ensure that your relationship with God is on a clear and firm path. 

And when our lives are built on a firm foundation,  when our lives are "right-ordered," many of the other things we strive for--like getting in shape, getting out of debt, writing a book, achieving success in your field, not feeling overwhelmed and anxious--then all those things fall into place. Why? Because we are going about doing what God has called us to do. 

The First Things First course will help you make a new and strong  beginning in your spiritual life.

You will develop a good, solid plan of action of WHAT you need to do. 

You will have a clear vision of HOW to go about it.

You will know WHY you need to become "right-ordered" and prioritize your spiritual habits in your daily life.

And you will learn practical steps that you can put into practice right now. 

In First Things First, you’ll begin to understand God’s will for your life more clearly, discover practical ways to begin living out His plan for you each day, and learn how to stick to these resolutions and experience lasting change.

Most importantly, this course will give you a fresh perspective on how you can become more like Jesus.

When you’ve put First Things First you will discover the true purpose for which you were created , experience peace and joy in your relationship with God and with all those around you, and open yourself to receiving the abundant blessings God wishes to provide for you in this life and into the next.

Don’t let another day go by feeling helpless, discouraged or anxious. Put FIRST THINGS FIRST and jumpstart your spiritual life today!
