Our sister site, WaymarksofLife can send you seven days of emails, followed by resources and spiritual formation exercises to be tried out for a week. These emails will be sent for several years. The course will unfold insights, excite us to live in a whole new way, and help us to shape a whole new world using Aidan and Hilda principles of life.
