Following Jesus involves both learning from him and learning about him.  That's why this blog exists. We use our talents to equip followers of Jesus with a gospel-saturated view of life and a positive faith-filled message that can share. 
 
Our goal is not simply spreading more information about Jesus,
but seeing deeper transformation in Jesus.
 
If what you see or read inspires your heart - share the message to those you love.
