John the Baptist

John the Baptist was written by Candid Gal, Valerie Riese

We fall in love with the Bible characters to whom we most relate. We inherit their struggles and adopt their hopes as our own, even though the Bible gives us just a keyhole peek of their most candid moment before the Savior.

So, we wonder, what else did Jesus say? What was He thinking as He ministered to those broken and lost, just like you and me?

Join me to eavesdrop on what might have been during the most candid moment for one of my

The Free, Easy Way to Fill Your Content Calendar (with free download)

As a non-profit, Christian digital marketing agency, we understand there are many reasons ministries are falling behind in the digital marketing space. One reason is a lack of resources for professional, on-site film production, so the ministry will either promote themselves sporadically or consistently post content that falls flat and fails to engage their intended audience.

We have good news for ministries struggling to get noticed in digital: You can produce consistent quality content, build

What is Anti-Abortion? Answering Your Questions

Few issues in American history are more divisive than abortion. Whether you are a man or a woman, whether you are coping with a surprise pregnancy right now, or you are eighty years old, the ramifications of the abortion debate impact everyone.

Since the fall of Roe v. Wade in 2022, abortion has been a mainstay on the news. In just the past few months:
• 19 state attorney generals issued a warning to retailers regarding the sale of the abortion pill.
• A federal judge halted the sale of one par

How the Church Can Gain Influence in our Digital World

Most organizations have adapted their pre-pandemic communications and marketing strategies to influence their intended audience online, but the church is getting left behind. For example, one of the largest churches in America, Life. Church, has 590,000 followers on Facebook, while the most popular coffee provider, Starbucks, has thirty-five million followers.

The chasm between online followers of Jesus versus coffee is a clear sign the church is losing its relevance in the digital space. This

27 Scriptures about Sharing Your Testimony (And Why You Should Care)

At Reliant Creative, we are so passionate about storytelling and Jesus that we’ve made it our life’s work and ministry to help others testify to all that Jesus is doing. But why should you care?

The Definition of Story: A Storytelling Guide for Christian Nonprofits and Churches

In April, I watched “His Only Son” in theaters with my best friend. I expected to see the story of Abraham, but what I witnessed was a stranger’s life transformed from darkness to light right before my eyes.

At the beginning of the movie, the producer shared the miracle of how the film was done so well on such a small budget. He asked viewers to stay seated after the credits so he could share his plans for future biblical films.

Friends, tears stream down my face as I tell this story. Four lad

How to Use Storytelling to Turn Your Mission Into a Movement

A well-told story can transform a person’s behavior by transferring truth without a sermon and values void of a lecture. Stories are one of the best ways to tell of Christ’s redemption to a world that needs the gospel but is not aligned with its truth. When the status quo is in misalignment with truths and values, we must resolve the tension by either changing ourselves or our environment, and story helps bring about this change.

The Power of Story to Make Disciples Who Make Disciples

“The most loving thing I can do for anyone is to show them how they fit into the story that God is telling, and when they find themselves in that story, now they become friends and partners of God in such a unique way.”

Leonard Lee and his team at 4-Gen Network have overcome all obstacles to train over 50,000 disciple makers. As the new disciple makers go out and make more disciple makers, the exponential fruit is millions of new Christ followers around the globe.

And he does it all through st

Understanding the Risks of Illegal Abortion Pills: What Every Woman Needs to Know

That may be the way the abortion pill is marketed, but since Roe v. Wade was overturned, a dangerous practice has morphed into a crisis—the illegal, unmonitored exchange of pills used to end a pregnancy.

The abortion pill still poses a risk to a woman (along with the loss of a

Storytelling Training for the Lord’s Redeemed

We cherish the idea that the Bible is God’s love letter to us, but how often do we write back?

Psalm 107 is just one of the many Scriptures that command us to show love and appreciation to God by telling our stories of His love poured out on us.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
