More About Phase 1

Unpacking Self-Deception: Who am I really?

Trading self-deception for God’s true perception of you

Whether you grew up in a “functional” or “dysfunctional” home, in some way you have been negatively affected by the world around you. That is why Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Phase 1 helps you discover how you arrived at the place in life where you are today, what is keeping you stuck, and what steps are necessary to begin moving forward.

A Safe Harbor For Healing – Set A New Course!

You will experience a safe, confidential setting where you’ll be free to share and explore your personal history. This takes place in a small group of one facilitator and up to four other participants. You will have the opportunity to accept your reality, receive healing for hurts and wounds, uncover the lies you’ve believed, and move beyond the circumstances of life that have kept you stuck. As you do this, you will be set free to boldly become the person God created you to be and chart a new course for the rest of your life.

Lies You Believe

While what happened to you in the past is significant, what’s more important is what you’ve learned to believe about yourself because of those experiences. By looking at the events of your life, you will be able to identify the lies you have come to believe and how those lies have affected your current thinking patterns. Those thinking patterns are what affect your choices and behavior. As you learn to trade self-deception for God’s truth, you will be free to experience an incredible love relationship with your Creator.

Applying the Truth

Once you have uncovered the lies you believe, you will learn to effectively apply the truth to your own mind and heart. As you trade in your self-deception for God’s truth about you, the “unfinished business” of your past can all be brought to healthy closure so it will no longer contaminate your future. In effect, “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4:22-24) Whereas lies once kept you in bondage, the truth will set you free!
