The Focus

A good story can change your life.  It’s happened to us, and it’s probably happened to you.  We’ve devoted ourselves to creatively telling stories of ordinary heroes who rarely make it into the mainstream media. These are stories of people overcoming in difficult circumstances, refusing to quit, passionately standing on behalf of the ‘weak’, championing others, loving enemies, doing justice, loving mercy, and walking after God… Thousands of stories are out there waiting to be told: stories that challenge, educate, inspire, awaken, and provoke a response.

The world needs more storytellers!
