Here's a challenge for you. A 20-day challenge.
It's called STEP-BY-STEP.
Because that's how we grow in faith, community, and mission. One day at a time. One step at a time.
So how does it work? It's pretty easy, actually. Every day, you'll see an update here with a simple assignment. Your job is to learn it- for yourself, as a couple, or together as a family. Learn Day #1. Then Day #1 and Day #2. Then Day #1, Day #2, and Day #3. You get it, right? "STEP-BY-STEP."
Keep at it for a little while, and you'll be amazed at how you've grown in the end. Watch the Holy Spirit work!
Oh, and there's one more thing. If you can pass this 20-day challenge, there will be a special prize just for you. But enough about that- let's get to the assignments!
