You feel it, don’t you?

There’s a cultural current; a strong force pushing you in a specific direction. Unless you fight it, you’ll meander along the same path everyone else is on: the wide gate the leads to an average life that doesn’t feel very rewarding.

You’ll get by, and you’ll probably even experience success, but you may also ask yourself if this is really it.

Is ‘getting by’ what life is really all about?

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Like most things in life, the best path takes work, and it’s not easy.

But it’s worth it.

I believe Jesus offers a better way. Yes, this is a “Christian” book, but I hope it’s different from what you have in mind. In many of life’s most important decisions, the Bible offers clear advice that often contradicts the culture around us.

If you’re already a Christian, I think there are a handful of key things we can do better. In fact, I think we need to do better.

If you’re not a Christian, I hope my words offer a fresh perspective from the judgmental people of your past and the angry people you see on TV.

This book tackles eight key subjects where I think we can improve, and I believe if we do them well, we will live better, more engaging, and more encouraging lives.

Let me be clear: I’m far from having things figured out. I have a long way to go, and I know there are things I can learn from you.

So let’s do it together.

Let’s change the world. Let’s figure it out together. Let’s talk about some things that really matter, and let’s see if we can make a difference.

Let’s go upstream.
