Too often we pursue other things and people before God. Keagy seeks to remedy this situation. She shares a short, dramatic account of her life and what Acts 17:22-28 spoke to her and says to us today: We need to read God's Word and receive the blessings of knowing Him. In sessions 2 and 3, she provides key principles of seeking God and how He provides spiritual nourishment through prayer, the Bible, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. She also discusses roadblocks to seeking God. The next three sessions focus on seven steps to setting your heart on seeking God, natural rewards of seeking Him, and a 21-day challenge of reading a chapter a day in the Gospel of John with specific steps for daily devotions.
Keagy speaks to a small audience in a homey, comfortable setting. She is an excellent speaker—captivating and articulate—and uses lots of personal illustrations. Each closed-captioned session is 40 minutes long. Workbooks are available for small groups. Recommended for church libraries, Sunday schools, and small groups.
Anita Keagy exudes joy and shares the source of her joy which is to spend time each day with God through reading the Bible and prayer. In the first segment she shares her journey of giving up her baby as a teen and many years later being reunited with her daughter and having a wonderful relationship. You will find this very practical series both enjoyable and refreshing.Karen Rutt
