Books and Materials

  • One Thousand Gifts – Ann Voskamp
  • Essential Practices of the Faith
  • Rooted Program Manual
  • Rooted Journal

Additional Resources

  • Pray As You Go – This resource (sometimes abbreviated PAYG) is a great one for being led through a time of quiet reflection. It is Scripture-based and provides direction for reflection and prayer. You can access it online at or by downloading their app that is free on all app stores. 
  • Essential Practices of the Faith – This book is a resource to help you practice spiritual disciplines. Each discipline has a story that helps you “see” the discipline in practice and has basic steps for practicing it. 
  • Closed Facebook Group – If you are interested, you can also access the Rooted Facebook Page (closed group). This is completely optional. The purpose of the group is to have a space to share what you are experiencing through Rooted with others and to provide another option for accessing the live teachings as they will be streamed using Facebook Live.

Program Content (Months 2-10: October-June)

There are three components to the Rooted Program. 

Teaching Component

  • Books – You will be reading four books (listed above) throughout the cohort. Your facilitator will let you know when you should be reading the books.
  • Live Monthly Teachings – In order to access these monthly teachings, you will need to set up a free account at to access the sessions. The other option is to watch them within the Rooted Facebook page (closed group). There will be places to take notes on the teachings in the Rooted Program Manual. Terry will be leading all these teachings. 
  • Weekly Video Teachings – Every week, you will have access to a teaching about one aspect of the “A” that you are covering. For example, one week your teaching will be on “Abiding in God’s Provision.” These teachings will be recorded and available on this page as you progress through the program. The teachers will be a variety of leaders from within the Healing Care movement.

Daily Component

Each week you will have five exercises in the Rooted Journal that will go along with that week’s teachings. We recommend that you try to find daily time in your schedule so you aren’t trying to make them up at the end of the week. The schedule will be as follows:

  • Day 1 – A Scripture reflection exercise 
  • Day 2 – 2 reflection questions from the that week’s teaching
  • Day 3 – A right-brain exercise
  • Day 4 – A second Scripture reflection exercise
  • Day 5 – 2 more reflection questions from the teaching

Community Component

You will be connecting with the other members of your cohort every month. Your facilitator will be working out a schedule so you know where and when you will be meeting. In these sessions, you will do experientials together and process what the Lord is doing in your life through the Rooted Program.
