Discipleship is a process that begins at a person’s profession of faith in Jesus and ends when he/she enters into the gates of heaven. It is a journey that takes the disciple through peaks and valleys, joys and struggles, all for the end of becoming complete in Christ.The Apostle Paul said that we get to know Christ through the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering. The disciple rejoices in the power that has conquered sin and death, as his faith is deepened as he/she learns to depend on God through the pain of life. It isn’t an easy path and the way is narrow. God seldom leads in a straight line. What the disciple thinks his future will be is more often than not completely different than he could have ever imagined. Yet, that is the richness of faith. The disciple walks in the Spirit and depends on His strength and wisdom.“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, ‘give me a lamp that I might find my way.’ And he replied. ‘Put your hand in the hand of God. He is better than a lamp, and safer than a known way;” (author unknown).As you work through this manual my prayer is that you will search the Scriptures and develop a heart for God. To that end, enjoy the journey.

For an author writing is as necessary as breathing. They don’t write for money or to court literary fame, but because they believe they have something to say. It matters not that anyone will read or listen, the words must be written, and if in the process someone is blessed — all the more wonderful. http://www.cravingsomethingmore.com/home/Married, with three sons, three daughter-in-laws, and three grandchildren, Dr. Perkins has enjoyed the fruit that comes through life’s struggles.
