“Would people know I”m a Christian if they didn’t see me at church?”
This gut-check question was just what Jamie Snyder needed. Like many of us, he sensed his faith had become mechanical rather than meaningful, scheduled rather than passionate. Emboldened, Snyder set out to recapture the sold-out lifestyle of early followers of Jesus.

And, snap, that question in the description is one I think everyone should ask themselves, because it’s the truth. What would people say about me if they didn’t see me at church? Would they say that I’m still a Christian based on how I live my life? It’s an eye opener question because it’s the truth, because it’s real.
Along with everything that Jamie has to say in this, he brings in real life stories, which just bring more authenticity to it, and for me personally, real life stories are the way to go, because they bring more people together and they can relate with everything.
we all want to be 24/7 followers of Jesus, even though a lot of us get busy with everything else that boggles down our lives and gets us busy and a little distracted from what we really should be doing, and through this book, Jamie helps us bring everything around us into focus and that we can see what we need to see a little bit clearly, a little bit more real. Some of the stories in this book are just simply amazing and I want to tell you them all, but that would be ruining the book.
We all need to be 24/7 followers of Jesus, but the important thing is that we also need to be real, and Jamie Helps us along with things that he talks about in his book.
