The story of the American Dream doesn’t add up.

We’re the richest people to walk the earth—but we’re increasingly anxious, alone, and dissatisfied.

Yet when we try to help the poor, we often invite them into the same broken story.

There’s hope for all of us in a better story.

Through Becoming Whole, you’ll discover how to be reshaped by God’s story of change!
