Have you struggled with an old habit for years and never been able to break it? You’re not alone – I used to be in the same boat.
For years I had a stronghold – a struggle against sin in my life
But God did a wonderful thing. He reached down into my pit and brought me out, a little at a time. He loosened those curly, choking tendrils and brought me into the light.

A story of hope
I have a friend named Karen. She’s struggled with anger and frustration with her kids time and time again. Each night when she fell into bed, guilt plagued her soul, knowing she’d yelled too much and handled anger wrongly.
Last January, Karen began committing her anger to the Lord. Again.
But this time was different. This time, She began praying Scripture. She claimed specific verses and promises as her battle armor against anger. She wrote them down and memorized them.
And she joined an accountability group, full of moms desperate to win over their anger too.
Last week, I spoke with Karen, and this is what she said,
You’re the best, Ruthie! I love your heart for helping moms and Moms Time Out has helped me SO MUCH!!! Thank you for encouraging so many moms to turn to the scriptures and God’s promises to us instead of turning towards anger. My entire family says “Thank You!!!”
She’s speaking of MTO (Mom Time Out), a closed Facebook group, which I started in January based on a prevalent need for moms to control anger and frustration toward their children. And because I had that same need, I decided to do something about it.
This MTO group was born out of not only my need to control anger, but God’s provision of something called Grace Goals, a course geared toward achieving our goals with Christ, instead of in our own strength!
“Let’s face it, fleshly techniques and worldly wisdom aren’t enough to accomplish true change.
Furthermore, willing yourself into action or task mastering will only take you so far.
When you learn how to access the strength God provides, however, you are truly ready to experience life transformation.” ~ Arabah Joy, founder of Grace Goals
This course is chock full of rich Scripture passages and goal-oriented worksheets.
>>Learn why grace is the enablement you need
>> Begin to recognize and appropriate grace in your daily life
>> Set practical, godly goals
>> Be confident of God’s favor and power in your endeavors
>> Develop a doable, personal plan for change
>> Receive encouragement in the Facebook group (optional!)
What is this method of goal setting?
1)Grace Goals is a digital download – once you purchase, you will receive it online.
2)A comprehensive 48 page notebook with 5 mini-workshops
3)Printables from each workshop
“If you’ve ever wished you could “do better,” throw off besetting sin or live up to your full potential in Christ, Grace Goals is for you.” ~Arabah Joy, Author of Grace Goals
Maybe your goal is to
be more intentional about keeping your home clean
develop a regular exercise routine (ahem)
de-clutter your home
spend more time each week ministering to friends or family
send more encouraging notes in the mail
overcome a particular sin or bad habit.
Whatever your goals, this can help you accomplish them. You see, underlying each physical goal is usually a spiritual need.
Discover your spiritual needs, meet them head on with Scripture, and achieve your goals.
How did I overcome my strongholds? Through praying the Scriptures daily, hourly, and sometimes by the minute. God’s Word and prayer is our strongest defense for overcoming sinful habits. His Word is powerful and sharp – a mighty weapon against the Enemy!
Grace Goals helped me not only achieve (and continue to achieve in Christ’s power) not only my goal, but it spurred me to make a difference in the lives of others!
Grace Goals is only $15.00 which is a fantastic value for such a wonderful product!
Are you ready to change? God’s Word, prayer, and accountability is the foundation. But Grace Goals can help!
