Welcome to Opening Your Heart: The Starting Point. This Bible study will take you on an exciting journey closer to the heart of God, help you form a personal relationship with Christ, and help you find answers to life’s biggest questions through the context of the Catholic faith.
Opening Your Heart is an incredibly effective guide to deep, lasting transformation of the heart and we encourage all participants new to Walking with Purpose to begin their journey here, regardless of previous experience with Bible study.
Join us as we explore the core questions that we need to wrestle with if we want to experience all that God has for us.
- How can I conquer my fears?
- What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life?
- What does the Eucharist have to do with my friendship with Christ?
- What are the limits of Christ’s forgiveness?
- Why and how should I pray?
- What is the role of suffering in my life?
- What challenges will I face in my efforts to follow Jesus more closely?

Tips for Using e-Books
An e-book is a digital version of a book. It can be read on electronic devices, such as phones, tablets, e-readers, or computers. e-Books are designed for use on electronic devices only and cannot be printed.
e-Books require an e-book reader (or e-reader) in order to be opened and read. An e-book reader may come standard on your device or may need to be added to your device via a free download or free app.
We want to make sure you get the most out of your time with Jesus. Here are a few suggestions from our WWP team on using your e-book Bible study:
1. Use the Notes feature in your e-reader
In order to experience real transformation, we encourage you to engage with the content of our Bible studies—reading and journaling your answers to the questions. Use the Notes feature of your e-reader to answer questions and make notes in your study guide.
2. Highlight words and sentences for quick reference
Does something resonate with you? A particular Bible verse convict your heart? Use the Highlight feature of your e-reader to mark the passage so you can quickly find it later.
3. Journal outside your study guide
You might find it helpful to use a journal alongside your e-book Bible study. Any notebook will do! Use a journal to take notes, record thoughts, list prayer requests, or simply to write about how God is speaking to you through the study.
