Alrighty gorgeous people! I’m throwing out the big “C” word in the hopes someone will join me on a quest to building (or solidifying) a renewing of the mind habit. Not sure what “renewing the mind” is? That’s ok, check out this post.
Already got it? Great, let’s continue…
Three weeks from today, the Taste For Truth Support Group* (on Facebook), will be hosting a twelve week long cHaLLeNgE to inspire us to renew our minds to the mind of Christ in the New Year. The focus will be tri-fold and will be based on this passage of scripture:
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (NIV, view other versions)
We will renew our minds concerning the three parts of every human: spirit, soul, and body during the 84 days. The assignments will be geared toward pouring in God’s truth and will build as we go along.
Participants will need:
- A Bible
- I Deserve a Donut (book or app) by Barb Raveling
- Praying God’s Word by Beth Moore
- a Journal (any kind that suits your fancy)
- loose-leaf paper or small spiral notebook
- pens, pencils, highlighters (more on this later)
- food boundaries (more information), if you don’t have this by the start date, don’t let that stop you from joining!
- a scale (or access to one) if you plan to participate in the weekly weigh ins (optional)
- access to a printer (for printing the worksheets)**
You can ride along (to some extent) just by following this blog, but if you want access to the PDF files once the challenge starts, you’ll need to join the TFTSG.
To add “community” and accountability to your challenge, pop on over to the TFTSG and/or comment regularly here at Brick by Brick.
So what is the official start date? January 6, 2017 That’s right, we’re kicking this off on a Friday. Why? Because our weekly weigh ins at the TFTSG will be on Fridays and to break us out of the whole, “Oh, I’ll start over on Monday” mentality. Of course, I’ll be posting more information here and on the support group before then.
If you are already a member of the TFTSG, do NOT use this upcoming challenge as an excuse to ignore renewing your mind and/or blow your boundaries for the next three weeks! Stay the course, my friends!
If you have come across this post after our start date, that is perfectly fine. Just begin as soon as you can.
* The TFT Support Group is named after Barb Raveling‘s book by the same name.
** Available only on the TFTSG.
I would like to join the challenge, Jules. Thanks!
Awesome, Becky – you can either comment here in the challenge related posts, or you can participate at TFTSG – it’s up to you 🙂
Am I able to participate even if not physically present?
Hi Priscila, yes, you can, but it may be challenging. If you want access to the PDF files, you’ll need to be a member of the support group, but I will be posting some things out here each week for those who wish to follow along without joining the group. None of us are “physically” present anyway 🙂 since this is strictly an online group.
I want to join in if I can figure out how to do it.
Awesome, Anne. Just click the link for the Taste For Truth Support Group and join the group. You’ll find more information there.
I’m not sure if I signed on correctly. I am trying to find the pdf for week one but no luck so far.

Hello, I would like to be a part of this challenge. I went to the facebook page and requested to join. Do I check back to this blog for the daily assignments or the facebook page? I ordered Moore’s book and found the app. Excited to start! 🙂
Hi Rachel, I just approved your membership. You’ll find more information on the challenge in the PDF file that’s uploaded to the group. The daily assignments will be there. I’ll post general stuff here 🙂 Looking forward to traveling this journey with you!
I am all sighed up and very excited to try this. I ordered the books from Amazon but haven’t received them yet. What should i do?
