God’s original design for your life was to be in a living relationship with Him.  The purpose of this book is to help you find that relationship and walk in it.  It is not to add to the layers of roles that we play in life, especially religious roles and religious play-acting.  I pray that this book will encourage you to become transparent with God, your Creator, and through that transparency to experience God’s wonderful love and grace which will mold you into His original design for your life.

The author, Larry Chkoreff, along with his wife Carol, are the founders of the International School of the Bible (ISOB) in Marietta, Georgia, U.S.A.  ISOB provides materials and training necessary to develop disciples, and assists in church planting.
ISOB has established discipleship locations in many African and Asian countries.
It is our hope that this book will help seekers find a relationship with God, the Creator, as they bare themselves before Him in honesty and reality, and that it will help believers to become free to walk with God with joy and victory.
There are millions of people around the world who are coming to know Jesus Christ every week.  The curve of growth is exponential.  These people need simple, concise teaching and grounding in the basics of developing their relationship with God.  Our hope is that this book will help many of them shorten their path of discipleship and become leaders for the Kingdom of God.  It is our prayer that as you read this book you will experience the magnificent presence of God, and will acquire a driving passion to continue to pursue His presence.
This book is dedicated to Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of my faith.
