The content of all our resources comes from credible experts. Whenever possible we try to find faith-centered sources. However, there can be tremendous wisdom and direction is resources that do not have to "wear" their label of Christianity. We do not 100% endorse any one author or source. We ask that anyone who goes to experts always use their own wisdom and experiences to validate anything they read or hear.
