11 Lesson 1 Memory Verse II Tim 3:16,17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

29 Principles of Training It’s hard to get started (But it gets easier). The longer you wait, the harder it is to start. No Pain, No Gain. (There have to be sacrifices.) Progress sometimes seems slow. You have to set goals along the way. Obvious progress is a great motivator. Training must be regular. Discipline & good habit-building are essential. You will lose ground quickly when you stop. It helps to have a partner. “Trainers” who challenge us are helpful.
