Phil leads an amazing successful media group in Hollywood which is openly unfriendly to Christians. “So many Christians get nervous and afraid when it comes to sharing their faith with friends, co-workers, or family. In fact, the statistics have long been pretty bleak. In 2012, LifeWay Research reported what they described as “distressing results” indicating that 61 percent of evangelical Christians fail to share their faith on a regular basis, even though they believe it is their responsibility to do so. Moreover, nearly half of those respondents said they have not invited a non-Christian friend to church in the past six months.” – Phil Cooke

We will have obstacles, pain, and hardships in our life. If we allow them to, they will cloud our opportunities, happiness, and focus. A radical shift is often needed to flip our perspective to one of purpose, peace, and prospect.
