MODIFIED, REMODELED, AND TRANSFORMED: NO MORE CONFORMED TO THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD
I’ve canceled my Netflix and Twitter, unplugged Facebook from my phone, limited Pinterest to once a month, don’t listen to the radio or watch TV, and only use TikTok in extreme emergencies. Is this the retrenchment required from living gospel principles and if so, why don’t I feel transformed because all I feel is isolated?

“LIVE YOUR LEGACY – HOW TO FIND AND LIVE YOUR PERSONAL PURPOSE”
In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • The Lord’s “life purpose” for us—a brief review of who we are, why we’re here, and what the Lord has in store for us.
  • How we can set out to find our own personal “purpose within the purpose” through personal revelation, discovering our spiritual gifts, developing and sharing our talents, and learning to “turn on” our personal joy detectors.
