Growing faith and deepening your relationship with God takes time, intentional focus, and dedicated practice. While you can certainly dive in on your own, the deepest spiritual growth will come from training and practice. I pray these resources will be a source of hope and inspiration for you in your own spiritual journey and will bring you closer to God.

“Prayer, understood and disciplined, reveals possibilities whose limits have never been found.” 

~Harry Emerson Fosdick, in The Meaning of Prayer
