SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES

These are daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal habits that deepen your connection to God.

Put God first…

It sounds simple…but how? For centuries, Christians have done this by practicing different spiritual disciplines.

Spiritual disciplines are simply repeated habits that connect our hearts and minds to God. They give us the structure we need to seek God consistently in a fast-paced world.

But, “spiritual disciplines aren’t ends in themselves.” We don’t pursue them to be high-achieving, good Christian girls who have it all together.

We build spiritual habits to, “place ourselves before God so that He can transform us.”
