UPCOMING BOOK (AUGUST)

THE BIG DEAL OF TAKING SMALL STEPS TO MOVE CLOSER TO GOD

Vashti Murphy McKenzie

Bishop McKenzie prescribes very small changes-such as adding a mere thirty seconds of prayer daily-that lead to radical closeness to God. And building an enjoyable, meaningful relationship with the Almighty doesn’t mean striving for perfection. Small steps-but meaningful steps-collectively evolve into intimacy with God. And the big deal result is greater ability to biblically address life challenges. The big deal is that you’re even more available to serve family, church, and community: truly in “no ways tired.” Increasing spirituality is incremental, not monumental. Mustard-seed-like increases in positive actions (and corresponding decreases in negative ones) yield mountain-moving growth!.
