Think Ahead Workbook: The Power of Pre-Deciding for a Better Life

Think Ahead Workbook: 7 Decisions You Can Make Today for the God-Honoring Life You Want Tomorrow

We all want to make great decisions, but frequently, we don’t. When the moment of truth arrives, we make choices that we later regret. It causes us to wonder if we actually can begin to make better decisions for our lives.

From both personal experience and as a minister and counselor to others, Craig Groeschel knows what it is like to be trapped in a cycle of bad decision-making. But over time, he has discovered how to short-circuit the bad-decision cycle, make wise decisions, and begin to become the person God wants us to be.

In the Think Ahead Workbook, which accompanies the book of the same name, Craig draws on the truth of Scripture and the latest research in human behavior to reveal the power of making decisions in advance—what we might call “pre-deciding”—to position ourselves to make the choices we really want to make and avoid those choices that we do not want to make.

Winning the War in Your Mind Workbook: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

Winning the War in Your Mind Workbook: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life 

We’ve all tried to think our way out of bad habits and unhealthy thought patterns, only to find ourselves stuck with an out-of-control mind and off-track daily life. Winning the War in Your Mind reveals that our lives are always moving in the direction of our strongest thoughts. What we think shapes who we are. Both the Bible and modern science provide evidence that this is true. 

In this workbook, Craig goes deeper into the principles outlined in his book to reveal the strategies he has discovered that will change your mind and your life for the long-term. Each lesson corresponds to the chapters in the book and includes biblical exploration, reflection and application questions, and practical action steps based on that chapter’s principle to help you root out destructive thought patterns and eliminate them from your life.

The Power to Change Workbook: Mastering the Habits that Matter Most

Nothing is more frustrating than knowing you want to change—and need to change—but repeatedly fail to change. You’ve made commitments and set goals. You’ve resolved to do something about the issue—whether you want to lose weight, read the Bible more, overcome an addiction, or get out of debt. Yet, so far, nothing has worked, and you wonder if you’re even capable of change.

If this sounds like your story, then it’s time to change the way you think about change. The Power to Change workbook blends biblical wisdom with up-to-date psychology to help you learn how to master the habits that lead to true change. In each chapter and section, you’ll gain practical tools that will help you:

  • Evaluate how you view yourself, how you view God, and the real reasons you do what you do.
  • Discover how to master small habits that lead to big change.
  • Employ the reap-sow principle to change the trajectory of your future.
  • Lean on God’s power—instead of your willpower—as the true cause of lasting change.

Lead Like It Matters Workbook: Seven Leadership Principles for a Church That Lasts

Lead Like It Matters Workbook: 7 Leadership Principles for a Church that Lasts 

It has been rightly said that “Jesus is the hope of the world.” While we can never argue against the importance of the power of the risen Son of God, it is also true that “the local church is the hope of the world.” After all, the church is the body of Christ. Jesus manifested himself through the church. And we, as the church, are chosen and called by God to be light in the darkness and give hope to the hopeless.

For this reason, it is critical for the body of Christ—both pastors and laypeople alike—to learn how to lead like it matters. In this workbook, Craig Groeschel shares what he has learned in more than twenty-six years of leading LifeChurch. The church began in a borrowed two-car garage, with ratty furnishings and faulty audiovisual equipment, but people were drawn there because they sensed a powerful, life-changing force that Craig calls “it.” While exactly what “it” is can be difficult to define, Craig reveals seven factors that contribute to it (or at least don’t kill it).
