Because He Lives: I am Redeemed
Jesus Christ makes a difference in terms of the redeeming and transforming of our lives. His redemption is both an event (cross and resurrection) and a journey (changed from glory to glory.) Because we have a God who is the same yesterday, today and forever, we can expect and invite Him to keep on redeeming the broken pieces of our lives.

Embracing Divine Encounters
With humor and compassion River Jordan shares stories from her best-selling book, Praying for Strangers, and illuminates the incredible ways that God uses our everyday moments to reach people in extraordinary ways.
One simple idea...
One surprising year...
One inspiring memoir that will transform lives...
River Jordan shares her incredible journey of a year of "Praying for Strangers." For a full year, River kept a resolution to pray for a different stranger every day. While her sons were both deployed to war zones, River focused daily on complete strangers instead of the concerns of her own heart. The "Praying for Strangers" keynote includes heart touching, life changing, and often humorous moments of a very normal person walking through an amazing year of connecting with people in a new way. River shares stories of the people she encountered along the way, how those experiences changed her life forever, and how making a human connection can change the lives of all those who dare to slow down and listen to a stranger's story.
When not traveling the back roads of America, River lives with her husband and their Great Pyrenees lap dog, Titan in Nashville, Tennessee. She thinks about where stories come from – places and people and moods of the heart while rocking on her front porch. And long after the sun sets over the ridge, she waits for the moon to rise, watches the stars come out, and stares off into the blue-night sky believing with all her might.
