Course Overview and Objectives


“He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things.”

– Acts 17:25b

Genesis chapter 1 tells the story of God speaking the whole creation into existence. And then in Genesis 2:7, “… the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” God gave life to Adam, and later to Eve by handcrafting them and breathing “life” into them. It is the breath of life that causes us to be living beings, not just the material we are made of or the circumstances of our birth. And God continues to be the giver of life today. His divine “passion for life” is transferred to people in a providential process called fertility in both men and women. Even with this amazing life-giving power in men and women, God is still the author of life, and it is necessary that the divine “breath” be given for life to exist. Acts 17:25b says, “Since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things.” Isaiah 42:5 says, speaking of God, “…Who gives breath to the people.” This Kingdom and earthly “reality” should cause us to value our lives even more and create within us a desire to allow God to take a lead role in all our “life” decisions. This course will help you see the wonder of your fertility and your amazing physical life-giving powers!
