Next Steps

More opportunities for growth in the Lord

30 Day Challenge

You’re Empowered To _________

To encourage you in your daily walk with the Lord, we have created a 30-Day Challenge that can be customized to you and your own spiritual growth. Many of us have goals and dreams of things we don’t YET see. But just because we don’t visibly see signs of those dreams becoming reality YET, doesn’t mean we should sit back and do nothing or be discouraged by what we do see. I challenge you, as scripture does, to wait upon the Lord for His timing is perfect! Ask the Lord what you can be doing to better yourself while you’re waiting. Ask God to show you what daily action steps you need to take toward actively pursuing God first and then your goals/dreams. Then, be willing to trust God with the end result.

No one can do this in their own strength but once you have an encounter with the Lord, the Holy Spirit then lives in you and empowers you to do great things. After all, Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not [YET] seen.” Ask God to reveal to you what You’re Empowered To do while you wait upon the Lord. Create a personalized list of action steps toward bettering yourself in Christ. Plug into His power and make your move daily towards confidence as a result of conforming to Christ. It’s the best move you’ll EVER make!

Bible App Studies

If you’re looking for an at-home Bible study to follow up on what you learned at the conference, we recommend the following studies in the Bible App.

For Adults:

Winning the War in Your Mind

Most of life’s battles are won or lost in the mind. So how do we start winning more of those battles? In this 7-day Bible Plan from Life.Church Pastor Craig Groeschel’s book, we’ll discover how to fight toxic thoughts, overcome out-of-control thinking, and start winning the war in our minds using God’s truth as our battle plan.

Fighting Negative Thoughts

Do negative thoughts cloud your mind? This video series shows you that in the words of Jesus you find acceptence, hope, love, companionship, and forgiveness to combat your negativity.

The Mind Connection

I’ve written extensively on the topic of the mind because I believe with my whole heart that the subject is of vital importance, and that our thoughts are, in fact, one of the most difficult areas of life to gain mastery over.

Get Out of Your Head

Do you feel like a victim to your spiraling thoughts? Do you often fall prey to toxic thinking patterns like victimhood, anxiety, and distraction? The enemy of our souls is determined to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for God’s kingdom. It doesn’t have to be that way! Get out of your head and into God’s promises in this five-day, thought-changing devotional from Jennie Allen.

Unhindered Prayer

We know a thriving prayer life is important, but here we find ourselves again, struggling with what we’re told should be a basic conversation. We’ve turned off the phone and hopped out of bed . . . but the internal noise can still interrupt even the best intentions. In this five-day devotional, examine what might be holding you back from being a confident and consistent prayer warrior.


Having the right attitude in every situation can be a real challenge. This seven-day plan will give you a biblical perspective, with a short passage to read each day. Read the passage, take time to look at yourself honestly, and allow God to speak into your situation.

For Teens & Tweens:

Loved & Cherished

Am I loved? Valuable? Smart? The questions can go on and on in a girl’s imagination. Lies can tell you that looks and popularity determine your worth. Loved & Cherished will help you have the confidence that you are loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable because God is your heavenly father.

Mean Girls: The Power of Words

Words are powerful – they can hurt and they can heal. The most important words to hold close are God’s words about us, not what the ‘mean girls’ may say. Join me as we walk through the importance of God’s words for us and how we can use our words for His glory. Thanks for joining! -Leanna Crawford

Love Letters From The King

No matter how many likes, comments, and direct messages we crave, no one can love us the way God can. Every day in this week-long devotional, you’ll read thoughts and feelings from a girl who might be a lot like you—wrestling with questions, insecurities, and dreams. Then you’ll read truth from God’s Word to remind you of your Heavenly Father who cherishes you—every moment, every day, no matter what.
