We are many denominations, but all holding or seeking the core beliefs we represent. We want our lives to mean something for God. We are tired of getting caught up in the whirlwind. We want more. We want God. We want to live out our purpose, not just survive the day. We are more than Pinterest worthy decorations and magazine worth images to share on social media. Some of us struggle to spend time with the Lord once a week and others study His Word for hours each day. Some of us struggle to find any meaning to our mundane days and others are radically changing the world. Our skin has different shades and our accents are varied.
Our commonality is our desire to be live sacred lives-- "dedicated or set apart for the service or worship of a diety... highly valued and important."
We believe in these core truths about God and the Christian faith:
- There is only one God, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully and equally God, yet personally distinct from one another.
- God in the flesh, Jesus Christ, was crucified and died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to Heaven.
- The Holy Spirit of God comes to live within a person once they trust in Christ as their Savior. The Holy Spirit indwells all believers to lead and empower life and relationship with God, to secure salvation, and to give gifts that build the church and spread the Gospel.
- God created men and women to live in relationship with Him, but the first humans chose to rebel against God and brought sin into the world. Sin spread like a virus to all humans, and all have sinned, and that sin separated us from God.
- God loves the world, and by His grace, delights and desires to grant forgiveness and eternal life to all who trust in Christ as their Savior. Jesus died on the cross as a perfect substitute for our penalty of sin, and resurrected to overcome the death penalty caused by sin. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ – not being good enough or doing enough good – that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God.
- The Bible is God’s Word to us, written by men who were inspired by God. God wrote His Scriptures to reveal Himself to mankind, to communicate with us, and to direct us in His best way to live life.
We donate 10% of our profits to give studies to women in prison
We are committed to giving away 10% of our profits to non-profits. We have partnered with CHARM Prison Ministry to accomplish this by providing studies for women in prison.
Picture (see right) is from our first year (2014) handing out Advent studies to the women of Carole Young Medical Prison just outside of Houston,Texas. We have given out more than one thousand since then and hope to give out more than one thousand this year!
Please share the image below with your friends and encourage them to order an advent study this year!
Discounted or Free digital studies to anyone STRUGGLING to believe
If you could use the help, please use one of these PROMO CODES:
HELPMEBELIEVE (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
If you are someone who wouldn't consider yourself a Christian or you are struggling to believe in Jesus right now, this code is for you. My heart is so tender to you because I was you for more than half of my life. Please use this code guilt free. You owe us nothing. We are praying for you. Would love for you to watch this video that I recorded last Easter/Lent that explains the heart behind this code last Lent.

HELPME25 (DIGITAL STUDY AT 25% OFF)
HELPME50 (DIGITAL STUDY AT 50% OFF)
HELPME75 (DIGITAL STUDY AT 75% OFF)
HELPMEFREE (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
We have many people reach out to us that cannot afford our studies. While we can't giveaway printed version of the study due to us being a start up ministry, we want to help you. Use which code above that would be most helpful for you. Zero guilt. Please accept this gift from us. We believe this study will speak to you and we never want money or pride to be what keeps us from hearing from Him!
MISSIONARY (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
You, friend, are a hero. And heroes deserve so many free things. All we have to give are these studies, so we want you to have it free. Thank you for your courage, bravery, hope, determination, endurance, grace, and faith.
CHURCHSTAFF (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
I've been on church staff and know that you make nothing, actually less than nothing. Ha! So please accept this small gift as a thank you for giving endlessly for others to connect with Jesus. Now it's your turn to receive something back that will help you connect with Jesus. Invest this time in you, not the people you serve. We must fill ourselves up before we can ever pour out something that matters onto those we serve.
NONPROFITSROCK (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
Ditto to everything that was said for Church Staff. Feel free to pass this code along to anyone who with a non-profit (or works like they are full time without a salary or a real title... there are many of you!).
FOSTERADOPT (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
If you are in the foster or adopting process or have adopted within the past year, please use this code. We know you are spending you money on SO many things to bring your sweet love(s) home.
SINGLEPARENT (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
Oh our hearts are so tender to you. Chris and I were both raised by single parents and know that it is hard. So very hard. Please get yourself whichever study applies and grab the family study too!
MILITARY (FREE DIGITAL STUDY) (FOR MILITARY AND FAMILY OF MILITARY)
Know I wanted to make the code to be HERO, but I know too many of you don't believe that's true. You lay your life down for our country... for each of us. We only have the ability to do studies like this freely because of you. You have given up so much so we could have that freedom. You have seen things you will never speak of because of your desire for freedom. My greatest hope is that the Lord would speak to you and heal wounds, answer questions you have. Thank you.
TEACHER (FREE DIGITAL STUDY)
If I could choose a promo code for you it would be TEACHERSSHOULDGETPAIDMORE but that was a little long. Ha! I've appreciated you and how hard you work because I've had so many friends who have taught. This year, as a mom of a kindergartener, I have an entirely new appreciation for you and the work you do. Your job is all encompassing, isn't it? I'm grateful for you. My life was changed by you. My daughter's life has been changed by you. People are able to read these studies and buy these studies because you taught them.
THANK YOU FOR NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THESE CODES.
It is a risk for our ministry to offer so many ways to get these studies for free. Every single person we seek business advice from has advised us to stop doing this. For good reason, we have had many people take advantage of these codes or share them in a way that appears like they can get the studies for free. We want to continue to do these special rates for these people. We know that by doing that it may not appear "fair" to those of you that paid the full retail rate. This is where we come together as the body of Christ to help each other.
"Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need." Acts 4: 32-35
