Developing a Christ Centered Life
Unit 1: Managing Your Inner World
AN ONLINE SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT AND
PERSONAL GROWTH COURSE
Developing a Christ-Centered Life is an online spiritual development course designed with growth-minded members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in mind.
It teaches you how to use smart, strategic, simple methods to create a deep and lasting conversion to Jesus Christ and gives you tools to move toward becoming who you're meant to be in this life.
Enrollment for part one of this class is always open for independent study. If you'd like to do it on a schedule and go through it with a group online, Spring Semester begins February 17, 2020!
Does any of this sound familiar?
You struggle to get scripture study in every day, and if you do, it's hard to stay focused on what you're reading.
You want to pray so that you feel like you're really connecting to Heavenly Father but can't seem to feel him near.
You want to actually to learn how he speaks to YOU personally but you are struggling with hearing it.
You are trying to raise a family in this challenging world. You pray for help to raise your kids and still find yourself losing your temper and getting frustrated.
You find yourself recommitting to your goals each Sunday and realize that you've forgotten what they were by Monday.
You want to be obedient but sometimes you feel like you are missing something crucial.
This class will help you become more intentional, purposeful, and truly converted to the Lord, to your goals, and to listening to the Spirit.
Never again feel like you're not good enough.
Instead, learn how to have a loving, renewing relationship with the Lord that will strengthen and grow throughout eternity.
The things you learn through this study will bless everyone you know or will know from this point forward.
When you can manage your inner world with spiritual power, then, and only then, can you have the strength and ability to positively impact everyone else too.
President Ezra Taft Benson said,
"The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.”
You are not meant to be like most people, you were meant to be extraordinary!
This course will teach you how to become addicted to feeling the love of the Lord and feeling the Spirit throughout your everyday life.

In order to take this class you only need two things,
First, you need to be enrolled in the course.
That's easy, just click the enroll button (scattered throughout this page), fill out the form that comes up, and baddah bing, baddah boom, you're in.
Second, you will need a workbook.
Alternately, there is a free download of the entire workbook once you're enrolled. From there, you can print it and put it in a binder if you'd like.
Printing it yourself is totally ok, but from my own experience, purchasing the books for a class feels like more buy in and most people are more likely to actually work in them. It's also 110 pages, which would give any home printer a bit of a workout.
When you buy the book, and it comes in the mail, it feels more exciting, and real, and it gives you proof, that you're intentionally working on your education.
"I started this course because I wanted to be able to feel closer to my Savior and feel the love he has for me. I wanted to feel Heavenly Father in my everyday life more. I wanted to come to know who I am praying to, on a more personal level. I knew all of the primary answers for feeling close to my Savior, but I wanted to do other things to bring me closer, and this course really helped me by showing me different tools I could use. It really helped me because it uses a lot of things I never really thought about to draw closer to my Heavenly Father. I discovered how much he loves me as a person and a daughter. I have learned more how to have Heavenly Father's Spirit and the Savior in my life and feel them more and know that they're real and that they really do love me and care and want the best for me. The knowledge helps get me through hard times and I know they are rejoicing with me when I have the easy times. I know they are always there to give comfort." - Sherry B."

"I am loving the course and can't get enough. Thank you for this experience. Today I understood a little better my contribution to my low self-worth. Satan has been working hard to make me feel like I am not enough. I have been getting in the way of the Spirit. I have been 100% focused on the ways of man. Thanks to the online Developing a Christ-Centered life class I have been awakened to the cunning snares Satan has been placing in my life. I know that I am a daughter of God. He loves me unconditionally. I am so surprised that I allow myself to get so wrapped up in things of this world that I forget what it means to be a daughter of God. For so much of my life, I have been a human being forgetting that God created me and wants me to be a human being. I love that I am relearning the importance of having Joy in each day. I am making a conscious effort to allow God to work in my life. What a wonderful gift you have given me. These are the things that I am relearning today. I want to be more focused on the Spiritual things and less motivated and driven by the temporal things in life. I know if I dedicate more of my time to your online class I have the Spirit in my life more and things run smoother. " - Lori G.
"On Sunday I learned that Heavenly Father often has to work around me. I want to change that and be a tool that he is able to work through me." - Lori G.

"I learned on the second day, that opposition helps me feel gratitude for things I normally take for granted. It strengthens me and helps me be a better person and mom. Joy is a gift from God. It helps me feel closer to him as I allow myself to find joy in the journey." - Julie B.
