I love that, and it's why I created these studies. They're the "tough things" of the Christian life that are actually the joys of the Christian life. I've led all of these sessions in a variety of settings--small groups, retreats, Sunday school, and larger gatherings." --Rick Lawrence, Executive Editor Group Magazine
