Classes continue via video and on-line this weekend. Throughout January we will be using the
Created to Love

This week, we will address the challenges of Decision Making. While throughout the fall, we deferred to the “See—Judge—Act” model of decision making, we will be refining that processes some more to looking towards seeking God’s will and plan within decisions as well as a process in which to consult with others.
Let's just begin thinking about the decisions that we make. Keep this worksheet open as you watch the first video.
We talked See-Judge-Act a lot in the fall, but now we are taking an even closer look into how this can assist you in making decisions.
We it comes to the really BIG decisions, you might enter into a process of discernment. Finally, we invite you to review all the important stuff from above. There is notes for the video below looks towards the seven attitudes necessary for this as well as the Virgin Mary as a model of these attitudes.
Finally, another worksheet is designed to assist you in claiming an accountability partner to accompany you in decision making
