"This class is a wonderful introduction to so much of what Dallas Willard taught about relying on Jesus, living in the Kingdom, and how to live in Psalm 23. Jan Johnson's teaching and how she breaks down concepts in “bite size” pieces is remarkable. The group we hosted has not stopped talking about it. We highly recommend this."

A Path to Spiritual Transformation

What really sets this course apart is that it doesn't focus on just giving you information but provides a path to transformation.

Jan Johnson (Dallas’ friend, colleague and editor of his book Life Without Lack) guides you on a journey to both understand Dallas’ big ideas, but also gives you practical spiritual exercises that will help you make that all-important journey from head knowledge to heart transformation.

"What I liked best about this course was Jan's teaching and the exercises. This course helped me understand Dallas Willard's book better. I read the book before the course, but now that I am re-reading it, I am understanding far more."

"This course has really been life changing! We can't wait to lead our women's discipleship group through it."

Paula McWilliams

"This course gave me some ways to think about my life with Jesus that have been lingering...especially the question 'what would my life look like if I lived without fear?' and that it is possible is helping me let go of fear and really TRUST Jesus in deeper ways."
