About the book

We want “better,” and we want it now.

Americans spend billions of dollars every year in our efforts to get better. We want to be better today than we were yesterday and better tomorrow than we are today. We want next year to be better than last.

We’re worried that we’re not good enough and no matter how hard we try, we can never measure up to everyone’s expectations. We want to be better people, better friends, better husbands or wives, better parents. We want “better,” and we want it now.

But what if the key to “better” isn’t what we think it is? What if it doesn’t start with us at all?

What if our concept of “better” isn’t good enough?

With its essential life-application principles and in-depth personal and group study materials, this book is designed to help you learn the keys to “better,” and discover that, with God’s help, the better life you want is within your reach.


ABout the planner

The Better Planner™ is a 13-week personal planner designed to help you map out all the different aspects of success and personal growth on your way to better.

It can get complicated to make sure you’re doing all the right things in all the right areas of life, but the Better Planner™ cuts through all the confusing apps and habit trackers, and puts the path to personal development right into the palm of your hands.

The Better Planner™ is radically different in its approach. By incorporating the seven biblical principles found in the book Better: My Life. God’s Design. into one easy-to-use, 13-week planner, the Better Planner™ provides a framework for you to achieve success and follow God’s plan for your life.

The foundation of the Better Planner™ is the practice of defining and reaching your personal vision. The other principles for growth all integrate with and flow out of this essential step. As you develop and record the insights you receive from God and His design for your life, the Better Planner™ will lead you through a step-by-step process to become better.
