Firm Steps & Strong Hearts

from by Michael James



Faith yields the power to transform the world, one step at a time.

Faith is a powerful presence in my life. No one can prove the existence of God. But proof is not what makes faith. I believe in a God who connects us to everything and each other. Faith comforts me, gives me strength, and orchestrates my purpose. While I see myself as happy and healthy, my faith thrives within my diligence to serve it.

Firm Steps & Strong Hearts is layered, not unlike our complex lives, with contrasting tones. Our glorious world moves in rhythms that soar around our diversity. Despite these sonic differences, the various parts agree to work together. Like our humanity, coexistence requires a conscious choice to "make it work". And when it works, all voices rise higher, together.

Firm steps toward the horizon, strong hearts open to the changes in the path that gets us there.
