Why join this study?
     It is a breath of fresh air!
 
     We live in soul-scorching times. The 24-7 onslaught of contemporary life—with its never-ending feed of global tragedies, demands for our attention, and pressures of work, church commitments, family, and friends—has left many of us feeling ragged, wrung-out, anxious, depressed and emptied.
 
     If we have no margin in our lives, how do we find room to change anything? In this eye-opening, beautifully filmed & contemporary video Bible study, John Eldredge distills a lifetime of wisdom into simple ready-to-implement, biblical - yet modern - ways of getting your life back in these challenging times.
 
     These simple, yet profound, practices and teachings will enable you to begin recovery, focus on what matters most, disengage from the tragedies of this broken world... so that you may discover the restorative power of beauty and your life in God.
