Reviews - What do customers think about Life You've Always Wanted w/Leaders Guide?
from a pastor Jan 26, 2010
I read the book by Ortberg and was so moved that I decided to host a small-group series based on the topic. The DVD is very well done, and Ortberg's style of presenting is not only inspirational but fun. The participant's guide is a little overwhelming, so we've had to pick and choose what we discuss after the video portion -- there is far more material than can be handled in a one-hour session. I would recommend this video to any pastor or leader who wants to present some great material that will really help people grow spiritually. We did not ask people to read the book first, but after two sessions people indicated they wanted to buy the book to read.
