Small Group Studies

The Take Back Your Temple (TBYT) Small Group Study gives you the confidence, knowledge, and skills you need to reach your best weight and maintain it for life.

It is not about size, but about stewardship – maximizing the awesome body God has given you to manage. Remember, he owns everything, including your body!

In the 8-week program, you will discover how to access the power of the Holy Spirit within you to live a life rich in health and wholeness. You will be able to fulfill your God-given purpose with vitality, freedom, and energy.

Start a TBYT group at your local church, library, or community center. All you need is a positive attitude, a love for God, and a desire to learn what his word says about health – and to follow its wisdom.

In the course, you will learn to:

  • Renew your mind to transform your body and life
  • Eat to build a strong, slimmer, and healthier body
  • Create a body that is energetic and vibrant
  • Plan for obstacles to your health goals and gain the confidence needed to overcome them
  • Practice good health habits for a lifetime so you can more easily maintain your new size
  • Strengthen your relationship with God
