This handbook is a quick overview of what God has taught me about spiritual maturity - thus far. The intent is to gently guide and encourage, nudge and enlighten as you walk your walk of faith toward being grown UP in God. He showed me spiritual maturity divided into steps from babyhood to senior hood. I humbly share this revelation with you. God desires for you to grow as close to Him as possible. It is magnificent to kw that this is also His reward for spiritual maturity. Thus, Growing UP in God is a win-win proposition. Included in this text, are questions to reflect upon, scriptures to confirm and convince, and prayers to spur you on.
Donna has been commissioned by God to write the Thus Far Series, to teach what He has taught her about spiritual maturity. In doing so, she is reminded that she cannot teach what she does not know or has not experienced. Thus, it is her great pleasure to share with you the treasures she has gleaned from being tested in the fire and by withstanding God's tests for spiritual growth. You may feel that the challenges to grow UP in God are too difficult to endure. But with God's help, Donna assures that the victories and life-altering rewards will be worth every tear, every prayer, every bit of praise.
