In 2019, collaboration on the My Agreements with Me for Believers lifebook started. We had a collective goal in mind, to share God's Word and to be able to personally apply it to everyday life in a way that made sense and was relatable to everyone. We believe that God's word is Truth and the more that we align our lives with this Truth, the more we will experience the gifts, blessings and miracles of living in His Word. We specifically built this study with a spiritual baseline of Biblical Truth in mind. Our foundational premise comes from God’s Word in John 1:1, that everything and anything that was made was made by God and for God. Therefore, everything has purpose and can all work together for good.

We also wanted to bridge the gap of separation and contradiction that as people we see and experience everyday.
It was important
for us to talk about what it means to have an identity in Christ and how it impacts every area of our lives emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. We wanted to make sure we included the hard stuff as well;
the consequences of sin, prices paid, generational curses/patterning, lack of boundaries, morals, principles and everything in between. It's what we refer to as #RealTalk. 

We refer to our workbook as a "lifebook", and in 52 Lessons you are given the opportunity to examine multiple areas of your life to question, explore and discover. You will have the opportunity to see how you show up and what could be holding you back. This is really good news because you cannot have what you say you want with a mindset and belief system that does not support it.

We ask that you keep your mind open to new ideas, that you create a new story of possibility, that you practice seeing something new about yourself (using these lessons) and that you have the willingness to create new and/or different results in your life. We believe that we are all God's children and we want to meet you wherever you are in your relationship with Him—if you've never picked up a Bible or you grew up with conflicting messages about God and His Word, that's okay. If you're a Christian that grew up in the Word and consider yourself seasoned, we think there is something here for you too and hope that you join us.

We believe that you are reading these words on purpose and that this journey of personal reflection has come into your life at the perfect time. Our greatest desire is that you would give yourself the gift of making time to explore and investigate the most important subject you could make time for...God and you.

You can expect to have thought provoking opportunities to take ownership, to be empowered and to reconnect with your personal purpose. As you look at the many areas of your own life you will be able to identify hidden beliefs, uncover unhealed wounds and experience deep forgiveness and self love. 

The My Agreements with Me for Believers workbook is a collection of 52 Bible Study Lessons to apply the principles of the Word. 
Co-Authored by Ray Tuggle, Sylvia Castillo and Desiree Duran.


In this 52 Lesson journey, we will introduce a lesson which will include:


  • A Values Principle - This will serve as the foundation of our learning and will provide an explanation around a belief and/or a behavior including a chain of reasoning. You will be able to define your principles or standards of behavior as well as assess your judgment of what is important in life.

  • Bible Scripture - Each lesson will include Bible scripture which will give context and meaning to the principles of the Word, so that they can be applied to your life. Whenever possible read and reference your Bible.

  • Explanations - Why, What, How and What If will be answered in each Lesson. Why is it important? What does it mean, How can you apply it to your life and, What If you did? How would your life be impacted or changed?

  • The Greatest Questions to Ask - In each lesson, you will be prompted with three questions that will invite you to examine and explore different areas of your life to gain insight and direction. We recommend that you journal your answers.

  • Belief Builder - Belief builders are exercises which will enrich your experience, develop yourself-awareness and strengthen your character.


*Same great workbook, two styles available

Read each Lesson all the way through, use the notes section or journal to write down "AHA's or epiphanies" you might have. Go back to the Scripture in the Lesson and reference your Bible to gain understanding and clarity about what you are learning. Journal on the Greatest Questions and complete the Belief Builder exercises. Ask yourself, "How is this relevant to my life?" and "What is this teaching me about myself and the Word of God?"
