15 Habits That Will Change Your Life

The Christian life is a life of love. Here you’ll discover what that life is, what it looks like, where it comes from, how you can cultivate it, and how it will change you and the lives of those around you. The spiritual disciplines, or habits, will help you develop, maintain, and deepen your love relationship with the Lord. They include

  • Simplicity, submission, prayer, 
  • study, meditation, solitude,
  • confession, service, and more

Here are practical ways to make them a part of everyday life, for them to become so ingrained that they become as vital and normal as breathing.

Praise for The Transforming Habits of a Growing Christian:

 “There are many good books nowadays on the Christian disciplines (love habits, as Watkins rightly calls them), but I have yet to meet one more nourishing and encouraging than this.” J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College

“It is a joy to see William Watkins combine his life of discipleship with his passion to communicate truth to produce this rich serving of food for the soul. This is not just another book on spiritual life. It carves up the real meat of the Christian life and serves the reader with a finely balanced and nourishing meal with that meat as the unifier of each course. So bring your appetite and dig in!”  J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University, and author of Love Your God With All Your Mind.
