Men Plan. God Laughs.
Whether you're making New Year’s resolutions or planning for the month, there is one important thing you should do before you even get started, and that’s to look at things from God’s perspective. This is where we fail all too often. And it’s not just us. Even some of the grandest of biblical figures tried and failed.
In this workshop we look at the stories of some of the Old Testament's greatest figures, including Adam and Eve, King Saul, and Jonah. In each example we see how God laid out His vision for them, yet they chose their own path and paid the price. Then you’ll learn my simple, practical, three-step process for figuring out what God’s vision is for your life.
My name is Ricky Jones and I am a husband to an amazing woman and father to three young boys. We currently make our home in beautiful southern Utah.
Though I am a Catholic now, I was not born or raised in the Christian faith. It was in my early twenties that I was first introduced to God through the lived example of my wife and in-laws. Soon after I felt God tugging at my heart and He led me into the arms of the Church through the waters of baptism on July 13, 2008.
My relationship with God has transformed my life and I no longer live for myself, but for the Lord. This has been made manifest through my response to His call to preach and to teach as a catechist and parish leader. For five years I served as a catechist and as the Coordinator of Family Catechesis equipping young parents with a knowledge of faith to be able to go home and share their faith in a natural, organic way with their children. Now I put my talents to use by helping Catholics to take their faith seriously and deepen their relationship with God.
