Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. In this 7-session Bible study, we'll examine the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can actually create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
