What have been the seasons of your life where you experience the most growth? What events, persons, or circumstances contribute to that? Did you experience pruning back, or editing, so to speak? Did other people have a hand in your growth? How does personal growth contribute to your spiritual development as well? How do you foster spiritual growth?
