What is God asking you to do when He whispers "be loving" or "practice joy" or "be peaceful," and so on, to the people in your life? God's power is real and true. And He does speak to us if we’re willing to listen.

In this course, Pastor Gil Stieglitz helps Christians understand how God uses the fruits of the Holy Spirit in everyday life to strengthen relationships and experience His blessing. Based on his book, Keys to Grapeness: Growing a Spirit-led Life, students will learn the qualities, actions, reactions, and attitudes that need to be practiced for a successful life.

A Spirit-led life is one where you can discern the voice of God and learn to hear Him speak into your life. Many people don’t realize that the Holy Spirit wants to partner with you in life by giving you opportunities to act or respond in godly ways. He may tell you to say something uplifting to your spouse or give you an idea of what to do for your coworker, along with when to do it. We know these ideas are God-given because we wouldn’t have come up with it ourselves!

Get ready to experience deeper relationships and more joy in your life.  

Who this course is for:

  • Christians who want to learn about God's Holy Spirit and the fruits/blessings of following Him.
  • Spiritual seekers who want to know more about the fruits of God's Spirit based on Galatians 5:22-23).
  • Anyone who is confused about whether or not God speaks to us personally and how to know when you hear Him.

Hi! I'm Dr. Gil Stieglitz, an author, speaker, and pastor, reaching out to you to help you with the key relationships in life. You may need some help relating with your wife or a woman you are dating or hope to marry some day, or maybe you are struggling with temptation in the area of sexuality. Perhaps you just want to know how to sense the Holy Spirit's guidance and hear His voice. The courses hosted here will help you with those things.

I founded Principles to Live By (PTLB) to connect people to God’s principles in their everyday lives. My hope is that my books, video courses, and blog posts will help you become all God wants you to be. I have spent thousands of hours helping, coaching, and strengthening couples, men, and believers in Christ, teaching that a great life comes by strengthening our key relationships.

I love to write and have published over 25 books on marriage, soul development, and spiritual warfare, including Building a Ridiculously Great Marriage, Becoming a Godly Husband, God’s Radical Plan for Wives, and Marital Intelligence, as well as Wise Parenting, Mission Possible, The Keys to Grapeness, Spiritual Disciplines of a C.H.R.I.S.T.I.A.N., and more.

Currently, my role as a Discipleship Pastor for Bayside Church near Sacramento, California, allows me to speak and teach thousands of people each year about the wonders of God’s principles. My wife and I have enjoyed 30 years of marriage and together we have raised three grown daughters.

Thank you for joining me, feel free to reach out to me if I can help in any way.
