Intentional Living is a reservoir of inspiration and practical help for the Jesus follower who wants more in life …


Intentional Living is marked by a sincere desire to see Jesus’ followers live radical lives filled with more power, passion, and purpose! God has used Intentional Living to transform lives, helping Christians take the next step to a fuller, more intentional life with Jesus. Our goal is not to merely present Biblical information through our articles, books, and courses, but to inspire and equip you to practically live out God’s Word in your everyday life.

You want more in life, but don’t know how to get there… let us be your hand to hold, voice to encourage, and practical guide to take you farther on your journey with Christ.

The pace of life is faster than ever. Expectations on individuals, families, businesses, and communities are intense. Time and energy are in great demand. People are spread thin like a frayed cord and they lack – focus, balance, and direction. The effort to hold everything together becomes a drain never imagined. To make matters worse, life often unfolds in disappointing ways.

How tragic for a person to end up at the close of a life season, saying, “I never intended it to turn out like this.”

Intentional Living Wants to Help...

It has been fashioned to come alongside so you can:

Discover who you are created to be.

Why Scripture?

Jesus is The Living Word. The Scriptures are God’s written Word – like “Jesus on paper.” So, when you take Scripture into your life by faith, you are literally taking the life of God off the pages into your soul.

By partnering with God in this way, you plug into the power you need to live with purpose and passion to succeed in daily situations.
