I’m just starting in a group and filling out my 2nd FASTER scale. This podcast was helpful in showing me the bigger picture and the ‘why’ behind this tool. An especially helpful concept was to understand that finding the true causes underlying my actions is not easy. If it were easy, I would have seen and changed them already. It will take my effort and faith in God working in my heart to reveal my true motives as he promises in Hebrews 4:12. “The sword of the Spirit is able to divide between the thoughts and intentions of my heart.”

Thank you for this pod cast, I am leading a group of men through the Seven Pillars. Having some trouble getting the men to take the Faster Scale serious. I’m going to play this for them Thursday night. Thanks, keep sending us this great information.
