Rebecca St. James' Pro-Life Message

For years singer and author Rebecca St. James has passionately delivered her True Love Waits message about abstinence and purity. Now she is extending that message with a burden for the unborn via her latest movie, Sarah's Choice. In her first leading role, St. James portrays Sarah Collins, a rising single professional who has to make a life-altering decision when she gets pregnant. Sarah struggles with her new reality and also faces her doubts and frustrations with God.

St. James says God had already given her a pro-life passion before she was even offered this role. Sensing that the Lord was calling her to get more involved with films about faith and family, St. James moved to California a year ago. Through a couple of friends, she got involved with several crisis pregnancy events and recognized an incredible need for movies that support life. read more

Paul Baloche: A Glorious Journey

As believers, we all have signposts for our journey of faith—the day we encounter our Savior, the challenges that uncover our deep need for Him, the moments we experience God's faithfulness.

For Paul Baloche, this spiritual journey is marked by songs—music that has moved from personal touchstones to collective signposts for millions of believers. Intimate prayers that have become global anthems.

"Songwriting is a big part of my spiritual life," Baloche shares. "It helps me go deeper with God. It helps me fix my mind on Jesus, to set my mind on things above. It keeps my own heart fresh and alive, for myself, my family and the church."

"When I'm writing songs," Baloche says, "I think, ‘Will this help the church worship God? Will this help people connect with Him?' I want to make music that they can believe in." read more
