The Valor Foundation

2014 Study Guide

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.  Psalm 127:1

The trustees of the Valor Foundation have chosen the Infinite Way Letters of 1971, Living by the Word, for the 2014 Study Guide. This is the first of the 11 book series based upon The 1971-1981 Infinite Way Letters by Joel S. Goldsmith. They are fine-quality soft cover books which include Scriptural References and Notes, as well as a listing of the tape recorded classes corresponding to each chapter of the book. In this way students can work with the audio of the classes along with each monthly letter. The Valor Website also provides suggestions for using Lorraine's class work with each month's study.

"There is a Center within each one of us in which is complete harmony, complete spiritual rest and peace, a complete Sabbath from this world." We attain the center within that the world may know peace. "We meditate only that we may be still and let this glory escape, so that all men may feel the divine Presence and Power that is at the center of our being and which we have realized." (The March, 1971 Letter)

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.  Isaiah 43:2
