Join us for a unique experience!

A year from now, you'll have more passion, purpose & peace than you do today... or not! You'll be more caring, patient, focused, courageous, humble, creative and alive... or not!

Saint Catherine of Siena said, "Be who God meant you to be - and you will set the world on FIRE!"

A favorite of audiences across the country, discover  questions that will transform your life. Whether you're 12 or 112, you'll walk away from this life-changing event with a simple and clear plan to help make your life work better!

The Experience:
We'll laugh, dream, face reality, reconnect with what matters most, and maybe even cry. You'll make commitments and find simple strategies to live those commitments. We'll share successes, struggles, and lessons learned.

The Game-changer you need:
Every now and then, we get a wake-up call. "Jonathan is a master at giving people what he calls "frying pan" moments... powerful wake-up calls... delivered with love and humor! His program was exactly what my whole family and parish needed!" ~Stephanie (Daytona, FL)

Your Host - Jonathan Fanning:
Jonathan is the author of several books, including Who are you BECOMING?, Creativity Unleashed and I Once Was Lost. He was voted best speaker at a TEDx Conference and has inspired and challenged audiences with his message in 49 states and on 3 continents.

The Monk:
Jonathan was blessed to have a Monk in his life for almost two decades. They discussed everything. Known simply as "the Monk" to many, this brilliant, holy, and imperfect monk helped countless souls in their pursuit of purpose, meaning, peace, happiness... The Monk loved to remind Jonathan, "You're a sheepdog, not a shepherd. The sheepdog has one job. Point towards the shepherd!"

Invite a friend!
This experience is NOT your typical Church event. You don't want to miss it... and you don't want your friends to miss out, either!

NO Hands... but Yours!

Heavenly Father, how can I be your hands today?

Is there someone that you want me to encourage today?

Do you want me to reach out to someone who is lonely or hurting today?

Help me to give you time in my schedule today, to say with my actions: Your will, not mine.

Lord, let me be your hands!

The Last Time...

...There is a last time for everything
There will come a time when you will feed your baby for the very last time
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child

...They will hold your hand to cross the road
Then will never reach for it again
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this...
