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.

Joel Goldsmith states very clearly that knowing the letter of truth is not sufficient, we have to progress towards being taught by the spirit or Christ within us, then our consciousness is changed.
