A moving and thought-provoking story about a group of Americans – a singer, a newspaper editor, a pastor & a real estate mogul who vow to walk “in the steps of Jesus.” Every day and every decision becomes a turning point in their lives as they must ask themselves: “What Would Jesus Do?”

Genres: Adventure, Drama

Director: Thomas Makowski

Starring: John Schneider, Maxine Bahns, Adam Gregory

 

BOOK: Jesus Always: Following God’s Direction (from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling series)

This is the Bible study series I will be teaching for the next few months. It’s a great study for individuals as well as small groups. There’s a lot of thought-provoking questions accompanying a passage of scripture each week and the devotions feel like the Lord is speaking directly to your soul.

 

MUSIC: I Believe in a Hill Called Mt. Calvary by the Gaither Vocal Band

I grew up listening to the Gaithers and hearing their music is literally like a balm to my soul. It either brings up memories of listening to a record on the stereo system in my childhood home, singing along to the eight-track in my Mema’s car, or hearing it play softly in the background of her Christian bookstore. All great memories (and a wonderful reminder of what a blessed upbringing I had).

These days this particular song holds another special memory, one I know I’ll carry in my heart with the rest. This is one of my husband’s favorite solos and I hear him playing his guitar and singing it often while I’m on my computer working. I always sing along- it’s so powerful you just can’t help but join.

“And I’ll believe WHATEVER the cost…”

This song is the epitome of having a FAITH UNFADED!
