What to expect

This online course systematically and creatively teaches the Backlund's best mind renewal content in a five month format (one month for each of the five steps of Romans 12:2 radical mind renewal). This teaching is designed for those on the go with lots of audio content and bursts of revelation.

By investing three to five hours a week, you can personally experience the truth setting you free on a new level (first in your emotions and then in your circumstances).

There are two tiers of participation. There is the essentials course and the intensive version of this course. The Transformational Mind Renewal Intensive is for anyone who wants to go even deeper into the 5 steps of mind renewal, participate in a greater level of community, and gain more access to Steve and the Igniting Hope team.

“Having a PhD in psychology, I can honestly say this is some of the absolute best material I have every come across in all my years of training and practice. ______________________________ The course is planned out exceptionally well! The daily audios, the belief trainings, the books, topical zooms, Zooms with Steve and Wendy, the Thursday zooms, and the Belief training sessions...wow! The (Intensive) was so powerful! I am so thankful for the many ways to interact...ask questions, receive impartations, prayer and prophesy! I will never be the same.”

“I almost want to do this course every year! Because it’s so valuable, and there is so much in this content that is the next level for so many people, after you get the revelation, you start to see where the caps are on in your own life, then you get free and you just want to help other people. I would also recommend level two because there is something about coming together as a community, and meeting other people in this way that really creates momentum. ”

“I am humbled and so very thankful for the amount of healing, breakthrough, and launching I received in this course. This course was hands down the most radically life changing and empowering thing I have ever pursued, and I will be experiencing the benefits and impact of it for the rest of my life. I feel like I have discovered the keys I was looking for my entire life; the keys to living the life of freedom and weightlessness I always knew was possible but wasn't sure how to access. I am profoundly grateful, and the echos of what has happened in me and through me will reverberate into eternity.”

“I just want to say thank you and well done on delivering an amazing groundbreaking course. It’s one thing to do a course, and you take a few things home with you, that change your life. It’s another thing altogether to hear something every day that changes your life for five+ months. The support and the love of the team is so powerful. My life has been forever changed.”

“I used to deal with extreme bouts of discouragement and depression. I would wake up in anxiety many mornings with a sense of feeling like I've missed something or "what am I supposed to do with my life". I now wake up every morning knowing Today is a great day. No matter what I have faced in the past few months, I have been able to find hope in the situation and changed my beliefs in knowing that I will be ok. I wake up with a sense of purpose and power knowing the future will be better than the present and I have the power to help make it so. ”

“What I have been receiving weekly for five months has impacted my spheres of influence - I receive consistent comments from my leaders about my encouragement of them and others, have received leadership roles in these past few months, and have expanded in my hope for my own business and ministry. I have developed my decision-making processes so that I can make good decisions with faith attached! That is great news! I am so excited about what is coming.”
