TALK IT OVER

A conversation guide for small groups & personal growth

Many of us set goals for work, fitness, finances, but not for the most important parts of our lives: relationships. But what if we were intentional about our relationships the way God calls us to be?

Imagine being surrounded by people who add value to your life. Picture being deeply connected with others, instead of just staying on the surface. Envision having relationships that help you and those around you flourish.

Feeling Weighed Down?

Have you ever felt like you needed a vacation right after finishing a vacation? There’s something about our pace of life (even on our time off!) that doesn’t allow our souls to fully recover. Our longing for productivity and for rest are often at odds with each other. But it’s possible to live a different way.

Feeling Weighed Down?
