Move Past Spiritual Stagnation
As you uncover the rich truths found in Philippians, you’ll discover how to daily experience God’s presence and engage in His eternal purposes for your life, leading to an overflowing and uncontainable joy.
I was very happy to see that Katie (and her husband, Chris) had produced another study, this one on Philippians…because her studies do something most others don’t: They force you into the Bible…and that makes them absolutely priceless. Pick up a copy for your own edification…better yet grab a handful and dive into the Word with your friends. You’ll be glad you did.
