Grow, Pray, & Study Guide: Experiencing Generosity: The Widow’s Offering

In worship we discussed keystone habits that effect other areas of our lives. These are the foundational disciplines that set the tone for our continued growth. In this week’s GPS Guide you will be invited to try different exercises that could be used as foundational disciplines to spiritual growth. These disciplines will be centered around activities that could be repeated daily or on a consistent basis.
Daily Scripture Readings:

them to you. Amen.
