My growth plan

We all want to change and grow and impact the world in a deeper way, but we often find ourselves in the same places we were in a year ago. Those who are really growing and impacting the world around them aren't doing it by accident: they are planning to do.

Use these groups of questions to develop a strategy to grow around our vision and values this season. Write them down in a journal or in a document you can refer to often. We find it is most helpful to share your growth plan with someone who can support you and hold you accountable.
