Fresh

Jeff and Brent are wonderful hosts! Thank you both for being obedient to the Lord and speaking truth. I love that you spoke about the wise men. I have been aware of this for many years and always place my wise men far from the nativity scene in December. They really should be placed in the next city over! Brent, we named our firstborn son exactly how y’all did. Bringing the good news. That’s our prayer still. Anyhoo, keep up the good work you two!
Go, Jesus!

Chasing Elephants will change HOW you think

Brent and Jeff always have me laughing, but more importantly, they keep me thinking. The deep dives into the issues facing us in our everyday lives challenge me to think outside the normal dialogue of our polarized culture. I love having a resource like this that I can apply throughout my daily walk.
