Kanye West’s Story Reveals An Unmistakable Fruit Of The Gospel

  “So dad, have you heard about what’s going on with Kanye?” my millennial son asked me recently.

People from across the country looking for a biblical perspective on health and fitness join together for 28 days to learn nutritious eating habits, healthy movement, and most importantly, how the gospel informs our body stewardship. I don’t know most of

David Bush with Joe Tewell “I don’t know if I can do this!” Marci confessed as she retreated to a bench. We were just halfway through her second session warm-up and things were already unraveling. I didn’t want a scene in the crowded fitness center, but it was against my nature to let someone fold
