The heart of Christianity is transformation—developing a relationship with God that reverberates far beyond our “spiritual lives.” In this six-session video-based study, author John Ortberg calls readers back to the dynamic heartbeat of Christianity—God's power to bring change and growth—and reveals how and why we should seek soul transformation.


In the six-session small group Bible study, The Life You’ve Always Wanted, John Ortberg guides you and your group through the spiritual disciplines and teaches you how they can transform your spiritual life.

What does true spiritual life really look like? And what keeps you from living it? And what can you do to pursue it?

If you’re tired of the status quo – if you suspect there’s more to Christianity than what you’ve experienced – John Ortberg invites you to join him on a road to transformation and spiritual vigor that anyone can take.

Cultivate new intimacy and confidence in prayer. Discover the freedom of secrecy. Taste the benefits of slowing life’s frenetic pace. Learn how to be guided by the Holy Spirit … and much more.

As in a marathon, the secret lied not in trying hard, but in training consistently. Proven by followers of Jesus over the centuries, the spiritual disciplines are exercises that strengthen your endurance race on the road to growth.

This DVD is designed for use with The Life You’ve Always Wanted Participant’s Guide (sold separately). When used together, they provide you with a road map for this transforming journey.

  1. Steve

    I’m currently teaching this as a class at our church (with the DVD curriculum) and I’d love to give this study 5 stars because it’s incredibly important and helpful for spiritual transformation, but the problem is they try to cram everything into six weeks! I wish they would redo it so each week is focused on studying one discipline instead of two. It’s tough to practice the discipline of “slowing down” when we’re rushing to cover prayer too!

  2. David

    WE have a small group at our home and this material is very good. It doesn’t take a lot of prep time and is very worthwhile. I would recommend it highly

  3. Marc

    I really enjoyed this study and presented it to our Methodist Men’s Monday night group… my first John Ortberg study, but not my last.
