More on "Finding True Fulfillment"

Several years ago, I led a weekly Bible study for high school girls in Springfield, Missouri. We met together very faithfully for about three years. Many of the girls were young enough when we started the study that they were able to attend all three years. Needless to say, when you spend that much time together, strong connections are developed.

Mike and I moved from Springfield almost nine years ago. And saying good-bye to those girls was one of the more difficult parts of the move. It is always so much fun to hear from one of them. A few weeks ago, one of the girls sent me a Facebook message. She is engaged and recently signed up for a small group in her church called Secrets: Transforming Your Life and Marriage. When she got the book, she was surprised to see that I was the author.

After sending a few FB messages back and forth, we decided to get together for dinner last week when I was in Springfield. What a joy to see this grown woman serving God, finishing her master’s degree, getting married, caring about important things… It was awesome!

It was fun to hear her perspective of Secrets. She told me that as a group they were starting session two, but her mind was still on session one—“Finding True Fulfillment.” We discussed just how much there is to think about with the one concept of allowing God to meet your deepest needs. We talked a lot about the frustration of expecting someone else to meet those God-sized responsibilities and the strain it can put on relationships.

Later in the week, Lindsey, my assistant reminded me that there was a large portion of the original manuscript that wasn’t included in final version of session one. [The book was just getting too long. :)] So we’ve decided to include it in this blog. Hope this inspires even more thought…

  1. My Pastors wife, Sheila Harper, just began your study two weeks ago. I believe she said you were a friend of hers. Sheila is an incredible woman of God and I just love her. Your study is awesome! The women are enjoying it so much! The book is beautifully written in a way that we understand it and is also beautiful itself. The DVD presentation makes it more "intimate" with another group of women. I can't wait to finish the teaching. Thank you so much!

  2. I am enjoying your book very much. I have a healthy Christian marriage, but your book has been so helpful already and I'm only on Session 2. I intend to share this book with a friend, who is currently going through a divorce. My intentions are to encourage her to learn in this time period to be the woman of God that He has created her to be and in preparation for who and what God has in store for her. Do you have any helpful insights in this area? Thank you
