Author and speaker Laurie Short has created a new study to address two of the biggest challenges facing us right now: Holding on and Letting go. It's the perfect follow up to her popular 40 verses study-- Laurie takes a deeper dive into six of the scriptures, and gives examples from her life and speaking that bring fresh insights from God's word. In six short but impactful sessions, she reveals how we can hold on to God when we can’t see what He is doing, and let go when things aren’t going the way we’d like.

There is a six-week study guide that accompanies this series- with thought provoking questions, ice breakers, additional scriptures, and reflection prompts that can be used online or in person-- with any size group.

Sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in-something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.

In this powerful study, author and speaker Laurie Short mines the Scriptures and guides you through insights and promises from 40 verses we often overlook. Digging in to these "in between" verses, she unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help you seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways. From trusting God's timing, to not worrying about the future, to holding on to faith when things look dark, the hidden insights found in these sessions will help you navigate the challenges that cross your path, breathe new life into your weary soul, and ignite your faith once again.

Be sure to check out Laurie's other popular study on RightNow Media called When Changing Nothing Changes Everything, which helps you access God's perspective on your life.

We often face circumstances that we cannot change: a job we are forced to keep; a relationship that did not work out; a decision we cannot take back. In this 8 session series, Laurie Polich Short reveals how even if we can’t change our circumstances, we can still make a change in our life by the way we see it. With the help of 4 “lenses”, she shows how to access God’s perspective on our circumstances, which can impact the way we live.

In each session, Laurie shows you how to access the bigger “God’s eye view” of your life, and opens the scriptures to reveal how this broader perspective can shape your decisions and impact. The study is full of biblical wisdom and personal stories, and Laurie gives many examples of how perspective has influenced the way people lived their lives for God’s glory.

Jesus indicates the power of focus when he says: “The eye is the lamp of the body, if the eye is good then the whole body will be full of light.” (Matt 6:22). Your perspective has more power than you think to determine the course of your life.
