"Through the Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith Podcast, an original web-based video series, and the recently launched Jesus Calling Prayer Call, we've heard time and time again that hearing other people's stories, particularly how people encountered and overcame challenges, is something our readers enjoy as they grow in their faith. The magazine is another way to share these inspirational stories with our audience, and we're thrilled to do it through the trusted print medium that readers can use to easily pass on these stories to a friend."
