  • I Found Love


    From the influential and ever-growing movement I Am Second, a remarkable collection of stories of people searching for and finding love.

    When I Am Second launched in 2008, the organization intended simply to tell stories of lives changed utterly by people placing God first and themselves second. Although the organization has exploded in size and influence since, that original mission has remained the same – and continues to have enormous power and influence today. I Found Love is the highly anticipated new audiobook from I Am Second, gathering together stories of people who searched everywhere for fulfillment and wholeness and found it only when they surrendered to God. People whose stories appear include the following, among others:

    *David and Tamela Mann
    *Jason Castro
    *Sean Lowe
    *Stephen Baldwin
    *Amanda Cooper

    Moving, compelling, and profoundly inspiring, the stories found here remind us that our hearts will always be restless until they find their rest in God and always unsatisfied until we find the love of God. Continue Reading I Found Love

  • Stories Of Faith And Courage From Prison


    This inspirational book is a collection of true stories laid out in a daily format; one per day for 365 days. Each story will tell about a work of God in the lives of those who have experienced some aspect of prison. A single scripture verse will accompany each writing, pointing to the hope and truth found in God’s word. While incarcerated, many inmates spiritually hit bottom and come face-to-face with the choices they have made. Thankfully, God uses Christian volunteers, prison chaplains, family members, outside friends, Christian pen pals, and other inmates, to share His love and truth with the lost behind bars. Regardless of how they are offered hope, inmate’s testimonies, along with their daily walk challenges, are moving and inspirational. You will read amazing stories including Brandon, a prisoner who had a prayer warrior mother, and was also visited by a Christian volunteer. Brandon came to Christ while incarcerated, and witnessed constant gang activity behind bars, including preying upon the youth on the outside. Since his release, Brandon often risks his life in his ministry of intervening in the lives of youth who are at risk to become involved in gang activity. The battle for the souls of inmates is fierce. One female prisoner said, When I first arrived at prison in 2002, Christianity was openly practiced and Satanic practices were underground. Now it is just the opposite. This inspirational book will remind Christians of their admonishment by Jesus to visit the imprisoned, to pray for them, and to share the gospel with them (Matthew 25:36). These collective, true stories will especially touch those who are uncomfortable with prison ministry, helping them to develop compassion for the shunned souls of society.

  • Follow The Star


    In the midst of your holiday hustle and bustle-presents being bought and wrapped, trees being trimmed, lights hung, and plans made-I would like to invite you to stop a moment and remember with me the true meaning of Christmas.

    We know the story of the three wise men. They looked up in the sky and beheld a radiant star. It lit their path and led them to encounter God on earth-a child in a manger, our Savior brought to life. And then we realize there is only one Star in this story-and His name is Jesus. He is the Star that outshines everything this world has to offer. He is the Guide we should all follow in life.

    I have walked behind this Star for years. He has led me on an adventurous and amazing journey; He has guided me through good times and bad. This Christmas, I would like to share with you some of the stories from a lifetime spent following Him. It is my hope that these stories will remind you that the greatest Christmas present is the One that lives perpetually in your heart and promises to lead you to your divine destination.

    May you recognize the true Gift of Christmas this holiday season, and may you carry it with you throughout the year. And always remember to look up-and follow the Star! Continue Reading Follow The Star
