I’m counting down the days till the May 1st livestream where we can experience the The Faithful Project stories and songs LIVE for the first time! 
This will be a special night that you definitely won’t want to miss!

Recently, our little song, A Woman, a seeing song, a healing song, a telling song, was invited to the Today Show and Amy Grant and Ellie Holcomb got to go and speak and tell the glory story of Jesus’s rising to millions. They got to go and speak of a project that we are all part of, called The Faithful Project:

“Highlighting God’s faithfulness to women throughout Scripture and all the way to present, Faithful collects stories, lyrics, photos, and art created and curated by some of the most thought-provoking and influential Christian artists and authors of our time.”

I would absolutely love for you to Come and Join Us!?!

Dr. La Verne Ford Wimberly wants to inspire people to not give up, sharing hope, light, and faith during the pandemic:

“So, for 82 years, I’ve been putting on my Sunday best, and so it has become a real habit.”


Reading is growing.

Reading Is Up. That’s Good for Christians.

There are spiritual and cultural implications of deep reading.


Did you know that Israel’s tabernacle tent was designed as a symbolic garden of Eden? And that Adam and Eve were proto-priests who lived and worked in the sacred space?

In this video, we explore God’s plan for humanity to serve as royal priests over all creation and how the story of Jesus brings this priestly drama to its ultimate resolution.

thank you, BibleProject
