  • Exploring how we can catch a vision of our heart’s desire
  • Getting our hearts ready
  • Forgiving others, and in doing so, freeing ourselves
  • Understanding God’s love through loving him and demonstrating this in our love of each other
  • Believing and hoping
  • Persevering in faith – keeping hope and trust in following our goals
  • Developing a heart of gratitude.
