Life Principles for Living out the Greatest Commandment is written for the one who wants to kw how to love God completely. Too often this high calling sounds exceedingly difficult for the average believer. Settling for mediocrity in Christ and half-hearted devotion, instead, is the standard. In this eight-week study women discover obedience to the Greatest Commandment is t an impossible feat, but a natural response to a God who loves the unlovable, the unfaithful, the mistake-laden, and the average halfhearted pursuer. Participants learn to discern differences between simply loving God with some affections and loving Him wholly by investigate Biblical characters that succeeded, as well as those who failed miserably, allowing circumstances, fears, and shortcomings to hinder them in undaunted pursuit. Readers gain insight for avoiding traps and snares set by the Enemy in their own lives by studying the lives of others and through practical present day applications. Because the call is to love God, t only wholeheartedly, but also with all the mind, soul, and strength, each way of wholly loving God is investigated. Interwoven throughout the study is the invitation to embrace how deeply readers are loved by the Father and to reject the tion that loving God completely is impossible for real women with very real shortcomings. Inspired to reach beyond themselves toward the Father's hand, women will gain a deeper understanding of what their lives could be like loving God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Cheri Strange is living proof of God's ability to transform a plain and ordinary wallflower into something completely unexpected. She did not set out to become a writer and speaker. Nor did she dream of getting a Ph.D. or becoming the mother to eight children. No. She simply fell in love with a God who met her at the kitchen table while her babies slept. And when she began to hear His call to move beyond that kitchen table, and communicate the truths of this magnificent Savior plainly for others to fall in love with, she responded. Today Cheri operates Beyond Ordinary Ministries, encouraging women through writing and speaking events to abandon comfortable lives of mediocrity to experience the extraordinary life Jesus desires. Cheri lives in Temple, Texas, with the man of her dreams, Chad, and with their eight children (Taylor, Addison, Jolee, Sophia, Zoe, Chloe, Tate and Zack), his dogs and her cats.
