Why does Brave Daily exist?
Being a believer can be difficult, we get it. We get it because this entire mission stemmed from our own reflections on life as a Christ follower. And it’s no wonder the spiritual life is often referred to in militaristic images, like taking up the sword and shield – being a believer requires courage and bravery, day in and day out.
Brave Daily is a consistent, grounded space for believers to feel safe. Our primary focus is to educate and encourage you. We do that by leading you back to the gospel message through our blog articles, book reviews, pastor interviews, and more. Our emphasis has been on reading and writing because that’s how we tend to have been changed ourselves.
Brave Daily exists to help you live out your calling through faithful conversations.
