Material Overview 

Walking Toward Eternity: Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart is a study in the Walking Toward Eternity series designed to ask the difficult questions pertaining to obstacles in culture that arise in the Christian walk.


About the Program

Walking Toward Eternity is an inspiring series designed to help participants live their faith more fully. Through daily prayerful meditation with Scripture (lectio divina), you will be drawn into an intimate and life-changing encounter with Christ.


Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart, the second series in the Walking Toward Eternity Program, is a challenging study that can open our eyes to obstacles in our Christian walk such as greed, envy, fear and shame. Through prayer, reflection, guidance, and the aid of the Holy Spirit, we begin to engage these difficulties in a positive way as we continue toward our goal of union with Christ.
