Gain, Gather and Grow in Wisdom. Sacred Scripture and Tradition contains an abundance of wisdom on marriage and family, friendship, finances, moral decision-making, attaining inner peace and so much more. While the Church provides a beautiful vision for happiness and well-being, our challenge often lies in applying its wisdom to daily life. 


Without proper spiritual direction, we struggle in our relationships, our speech, our finances, our choices, and every other important aspect of our lives. This study seeks to draw on the literary teachings of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach and Ecclesiastes—to help participants gain, gather and grow in God’s wisdom. 


In this study, you will: 

  • Discover what wisdom is...and what it is not!
  • Gain tools for sound guidance and decision-making
  • Gather fruitful teaching for navigating life according to God’s vision
  • Grow in the kind of wisdom that nurtures peace of mind and brings about true joy

Participant Study Guide: 

  • Includes discussion questions and responses
  • Lectio Divina
  • Space for journaling
  • Talk notes accompany video presentations

  • 25-minute teaching video hosted by theologian, Jeff Cavins

  • Provides important additional content for applying lessons to everyday life
