  • I viewed these courses a few times previously in years gone by. They are extremely helpful, not just for leaders but anyone who wants to grow in their personhood. I have recommended in the past to our church leadership for the staff, as our staff if very young, and not formally trained. I think this course would benefit anyone who wants to learn about themselves and how they view life, and how they affect others good or bad. I am currently in a celebrate recovery program, learning or unlearning various habits, compulsions and patterns. As I review these lessons now, I am gaining more than the first few times of viewing. I am not someone who picks things up quickly hence the ability to review is very important to me. Thank you.
