Most of us aren’t in danger of ruining our lives.
We’re in danger of wasting them.
Are you unsatisfied with the kind of Christian life you’ve settled for? If you are tired of cul-de-sac Christianity or self-help pseudo solutions, today is the day God’s greater plan for your life begins in full force:
Greater than the labels you were given when you were young.
Greater than the cynicism that settles in as you get older.
Greater than the dreams you’ve dreamed for yourself.
Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God.
I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember. Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.
Turn your fleeting minutes into defining moments.
What can you do in 30 minutes? Have lunch? Watch television? Check Facebook?
How about change your life? Why do some people achieve far more than others? We all get the same 24 hours in a day, yet a special few seem to have superhuman abilities when it comes to accomplishing great things in life. Tommy Barnett, a proven master at “getting things done,” says the key to maximizing your productivity is to make use of small, manageable moments in your day—just 30 minutes at a time.

Learn about the making of a leader–God’s way.
God calls every one of His people to positions of leadership and influence–in our homes, communities, churches, and ultimately the world. But true leadership involves more than simply being the person out front; it means living a life worth following.
In this study of four important leaders of Israel–Eli, Samuel, Saul, and David–you’ll explore key leadership principles, including how to make wise decisions under pressure, deal effectively with mistakes, and set a course that others will follow. Most important, you’ll learn what God expects of you–and how you can rise to the call of effective leadership.
