Announcing the Reservoir.

I’m excited to let you know about a labor of love from the Renovaré staff (including me!), the release of a new fifteen-month Renovaré weekday devotional, The Reservoir.

In short but meaty portions, this resource explores how even in demanding circumstances we can accept Jesus’ invitation to be filled to overflowing with His living water.

The Reservoir covers foundational questions like:

  • What is spiritual formation?
  • What is my picture of God?
  • What is my picture of myself?

Then the devotional dives into each of the six great Christian traditions (Streams).

Head over to the book’s webpage to download the first month free or purchase the entire devotional in paperback or on Kindle. Bulk discounts are available.
