Why write a book about self-image and identity? Well, to put it quite simply, because it’s the biggest problem of our generation.
Every person on planet earth has been weighed down by different things in their life. Whether it’s past mistakes, unmet expectations, or a dream that has been run into the ground, we have all experienced the heaviness that this fallen world has thrown on us. Even in the midst of all the darkness that is present in our lives, we want to spread the truth that there is a light at the end of every tunnel, a light shining brightly with the essence of Heaven. That light is Jesus.
There is a divine thread that is woven into the fiber of our bodies. It’s the very image of God that is stamped across our identity naming Him as the One who crafted our conception. The One who created us cares for us. He longs to see the burdens that weigh us down thrown onto Him. He chases us because of the divine thread and holy image that we all bear. He doesn’t want His creation chained down. He wants us to be set free.
This book exists because our hearts beat to see people experience the freedom that is offered in Jesus. We believe that not only does Jesus want us to go from death to life in Him, but He also wants us to live that new life in complete freedom. We see that many people in our generation don’t know what true freedom feels like, so we seek to change that. It’s not a matter of doing the right thing, but of taking off the grave clothes that we wore before Jesus brought us to life. It’s truly laying down oneself and choosing Jesus. Nothing can define you like the One who created you. Let Him do His work, and live in the truth that comes from it.
We seek to inspire others to live a life of freedom that is offered to them by the One whose image they bear. We believe that God will awaken a burdened generation to experience the fullness of who He created them to be.
