Imagine a world where every person is intentionally living a selfless life in order to glorify God!
Sounds a little like heaven on earth and we would agree. We believe that true followers of Jesus live out their faith in the really small decisions that are made each day. Decisions that require us to choose between simply serving ourselves or meeting needs of those around us.
It all sounds so simple. Placing others' needs ahead of our own. But we all have responsibilities, families, careers, plans, dreams, and each of these fight daily for a position of prominence in all of our lives.
