Meeting For King & Country
I watched For King and Country's music video, "The Proof of Your Love" hundreds of times. That inspired me to write a book, "Surviving the Apocalypse in Steinbach, MB". This weekend I went to the For King and Country concert so I could give them a copy of the novel I dedicated to them. Watch to see what happened :D

  • Agape on July 31, 2011

    Hi Emily, I found this touching especially the part about talking with Jesus. I can't wait to see Him!
  • We Don’t Plummet Out of the Sky Anymore on April 30, 2013

    Super! Light-hearted and feel good. Just like fiction should be.
  • The Ultimate Failure on June 24, 2015

    Very, very good short story! Brought tears to my eyes. We sometimes don't understand God's plan but He's always at work. He never calls us to success only to obedience.
