Choosing joy in the moment often takes effort and attention.

When negative thoughts and emotions appear, it helps to have tools to shift the focus to the positive.

This Spiritual Growth program revolves around using tools – or tasks – designed to enhance your spiritual life and your relationship with the Lord.
