Living Well Is The Best Revenge chronicles the story of Charlene Brazelton, a woman who rebuilds her life after being plagued by a series of hardships, toxic relationships and ambitious pursuits.  Prolonged stress and protracted suffering have debilitated her self-confidence and shifted her focus away from God and His promises.  Hitting rock bottom forces Charlene to take a sobering look at her circumstances and that period of reflection proves to be a defining moment in her life.  From the valley of the shadow of death, Charlene reaches up to God, the only one who can help her.  And rediscovering her faith in Him proves to be her saving grace.

The Body of Christ | A Church Directory
​While traditional and social media products are great tools to enhance your understanding of the message of the gospel, there is no substitute for participating in worship services, educational programs and fellowship opportunities provided by a local body of believers.  We've assembled a list of some of the most notable, thriving congregations from coast to coast to help you find a local church family.  Consult the list and confer with friends, colleagues and neighbors to help you identify churches which may be a good fit for your family and you.  After several visits to each, pray to the Lord for confirmation of your new church home.  Remember, not only do you need a church family, a church family needs YOU.  

Blog | Share Your Story
​It's true, there are eight million stories in the city.  And yours is one of them.  In His infinite wisdom, God created you for a purpose.  He blessed you with unique gifts and talents.  And He gave you a key role in His plan for all mankind.  As such, the world needs to hear from you!  People need to hear about your trials and triumphs, your victories as well as your defeats.  Why?  Because you are God's workmanship and you were created to do good works.  Though you may think otherwise, there is value in your life experiences.  There is wisdom that you need to share.  There are lessons which other believers may learn from you.  And there is hope and encouragement which may be gleaned from your story.  So give others the benefit of your experience.  Better still, give God the glory.  Share your story with believers around the world today.  
Like Charlene, if you're buckling under the weight of your responsibilities or if you just need your spirit lifted, use the resources below to renew your faith in God and develop a deeper understanding of His awesome wonder.
