The temptation to compare is as near as your next chat with a friend, trip to the store, or check-in on social media. And whether you come out on top or come up lacking, there is simply no win in comparison. It's a trap.

We all have frameworks that help us make sense out of life. For many of us, that framework is religion.

But frameworks fail. Life happens. And you may be left wondering . . . or maybe even wandering away from faith entirely.

In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley reframes faith—not around the people, institutions, and religious rules that may have caused us to wander, but instead around Jesus and the wonder of his love.

As children, many of us received a leather-bound book full of long words and difficult names we couldn’t pronounce. We were told everything in it was true and we should do our best to abide by its teachings.

Then we grew up.

What was oh-so-simple then is . . . well, it’s not simple. Perhaps that’s because we were taught Bible stories but not the story of the Bible. Big difference. In this 4-part series, Andy Stanley gives us a way to approach the Bible that begins with something other than “in the beginning . . .”

Author and pastor Andy Stanley is convinced that most of us are richer than we believe. But we might think, rich is the other guy. Rich is having more that we currently have.

In this four-session small group study, Andy encourages us to not just BE rich, but he helps us learn to be GOOD at it!

Everything has a starting point-your life, your relationships, your education, your career.

Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood as a set of beliefs handed to us by a parent, teacher, or pastor. Maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Or maybe you had not faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn't strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.

But what if you could find a new starting point for faith?

Christians believe a lot of crazy things- including that God showed up in a human body and living among humankind.

Why would God want to become one of us and live in a world of anxiety, chaos, and heartache? Why would God leave the comfort and recognition of heaven to live in this world? In this four-session video study, Andy Stanley targets these perplexing questions.

Standing at the altar, we all had a picture of what our marriage would look like. The problem is this picture of marriage results in expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations will rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like are good enough. So what are you to do with your expectations? You can't deny them, because most expectations started out as God-given desires. In this study, Andy Stanley explains that you must learn to transform your expectations and look to God if you are to experience as it was designed.
