What does a nun wear that everyone has? Habits!

Far too often we simply float along through life.  Maybe we attribute our station in life to fate, or think that our life is just the way it has to be.  Even our daily routine may seem like something we have no control over – it’s just what we have to do.   Perhaps bad habits have taken over and we are not living the life we want to.

Steven Covey has left a legacy of lives changed for the better when people have realized that their life may be more controlled by habit than they ever imagined. That’s great news!  What? How can that be great news?  If bad habits have taken over, we simply need new habits.  And Steven Covey offers up seven powerful new habits you can take on in your life that will positively change it forever.

The first step is to be Proactive.  Take the initiative and seek something better for yourself, your family, and those around you.  The Apostle, Paul, suggested the same in Ephesians 4:22 -24: “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”

Yes, new habits are Biblical, and we invite you to join us in discovering how new habits can restore hope to your life – beginning Sun., Sept. 11, at 10 a.m.  This series will be co-taught with Dr. Trevor Dietrich, an expert in Covey’s Seven Habits. And, you can get started now by reading, and implementing the book!
