Personal Development

“We were all created to be great men and women. God did not send us into this world without purpose. When God created us He invested His complete love into each person. We are all created for greatness.” – True Father

Here you’ll find information about how to develop ourselves with a spiritual lifestyle in mind.

A healthy lifestyle means taking care of your physical body with a nutritious diet, exercise and avoiding whatever harms your body, like alcohol or drugs. It also means taking care of your spiritual growth (with prayer, HDH etc.) and learning how to love. You have genuine relationships where you feel fulfilled because you are supporting others with your time and your abilities.

Any areas in your life where you find it harder to have self control such as eating, social media, gaming, masturbation, pornography etc. These are habits you need to address now.  Isolation and loneliness can often lead to addictive behaviors* so it’s important to reflect on ways to connect with others (family, friends, community) more regularly.
