This Contest Is Over! Check back for other opportunities to win.
HostBox_WhiteBGLife As We Know It is one of the most interesting studies I’ve reviewed in the last several years.  Produced by Spread Truth, Life As We Know It is truly a cross-cultural experience and an enormously timely idea.

The powerful idea that makes this study so interesting is that everybody has a story.  Further, “sharing stories is foundational to community and the meaningful relationships we all long for.”

Because Life As We Know It is not a Bible study, it is well-suited for use with neighbors, friends and co-workers as well as small groups and ministry teams.  In my mind, the fact that it is designed to “facilitate gatherings where the art of storytelling is practiced and deeper relationships are forged” is one of the genius elements of the experience.

    I have looked at this material and it looks like it would be a great journey with others for the first time! thanks for offering the opportunity!

    This would offer a good change of pace curriculum for our new summer small groups

    We just recently started a new church. We are striving to reach out into the community. This would be a great way to start esp. with small groups within our own neighborhoods.

    I work with several small groups, wonderful believers 65+ years old. I hear them say “I know I have a story, but I don’t have unsaved people in my life, my friends are all Christians”. I challenge them about who: cuts their hair, who lives across the street, who waits on them at the store, who helps them at the fitness club, etc. There truly are “every day” people in our lives who might have a chance to meet God because someone cared enough to “share their story”.

    I work with youth in a community of around 3000 small town, rural Iowa, with no evangelistic church here. We are planning on starting a fellowship group-almost afraid to call it a “church” because we want to make it open to those who have no church background as well as those who have walked away from the church. I would love to use this resource for us to connect with friends and neighbors when we get

    I’m always looking for some means to infiltrate the neighborhood with the Gospel. I see this as an amazing tool to open doors and get people thinking about the world around them. This kit would be put to good use!

    Our church is a church plant begun solely by a group of people desiring to reach people far from God. The road has been difficult, challenging, lonely, and seemingly unsuccessful, thus far. Becuase of this, many have departed for “greener pastures.” I’m not a very creative person and, as a result, am always looking for ways we can connect with those who have yet to know Christ and His love story. Based on what I see, and your review, this tool may be such a way. It would be a tremendous blessing to a tiny church with God-sized dreams. Thank you for making this available.

    Life as We Know It is an incredible ministry tool that I’ve used for team-building for STM teams. My small group and I are all relocating to a low income, highly diverse part of our city and would love to use the tool to meet new neighbors!

  10. Josh on July 7, 2014 at 8:37 am

    Life As We Know It is such an awesome tool! Our college ministry is planning to use it in the Fall with the housemates involved in our residential ministry. I can’t wait to see the unique and interesting stories that they will bring to the table!

    I would love for our Young Adult ministry to do this study! Thanks for the great option!

    I have used Life As We Know It at every level of church. One on one pastoral counseling. I have used in in small groups as an ice breaker. I have used it to train leaders in understanding their own story and entering into the stories of others they serve. It is an invaluable, simple resource.

  13. Mike Stokes on July 7, 2014 at 10:14 am

    I’m impressed with Life As We Know it, as I am with everything produced by Spreadtruth. We are using it with a small group in our church right now. I’m finding that this tool is helping to form deeper discussions and relationships with people I thought I knew pretty well! My wife and I are planning on gathering a group of folks from our neighborhood to do Life As We Know It this fall.

    Our community groups used “The Story” evangelism training a few years ago and loved it. I have used “Life As We Know It” as part of pre-marital counseling, which deepened the couples understanding of each others stories, which no doubt will help them apply the Gospel to one another. This resource can be used in various ways to deepen relationships for the sake of bringing the Gospel to bear on people’s stories.
