There are 101 ways to live out your life; however the focus on this show is to live in a way that releases Gods best for your life. We will discuss topics on faith, marriage, family, health & wellness, business, and even finances. When it comes to living an abundant life in Christ, God’s word has something to say about each and every one of these areas of our life. Join us as we breakdown amazing biblical insights to design a life that is on purpose, and in line with the ways of God. I think Jesus says it best in John 10:10, “…I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.” Jesus has become the doorway to all the promises that God has for His children. A life in Christ is one that is promised to be rich and satisfying. Life to the fullest, life more abundantly - where we don’t just survive, we thrive! Join us each week for inspiration and teaching that will encourage you in your faith to live a life full of hope and promise. Welcome to the show that will bless your life!
