Welcome to Follow, an interactive guide to becoming a follower of Christ from Lifeword. Our goal is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples of all nations. My name is Yalanda and I work here at Lifeword. We’re thankful you’ve decided to join us on this journey as you learn what it means to take that next step from believing in Jesus to actually walking with Him daily.

Throughout this four-part series, we want to help define what a Christ Follower is, invite you to follow Jesus, show you what it looks like to be transformed by Him, and know what it means to live out Christ’s mission.

Plus, we want to be here to encourage you and help answer questions like the ones you’ve been asking, such as, “What is my purpose? How do I find true happiness? And why do bad things happen to good people?”

If you’re like me, you want to know the details up front: What am I getting myself into?
What kind of commitment am I making? What’s being asked of me? These sessions give you the opportunity to go at your own pace. You can always stop and pick up where you left off, but our team is also here to encourage you along the way to continue. Becoming a follower of Jesus Christ is not a class or a course. It’s not something we just check off our to-do list. It’s learning how to choose to walk with Jesus every day and how to teach others to do the same.

Are you ready? Follow me and we’ll get started!

About Yalanda

Hi friends! I can’t wait to get to know you more in this journey of learning more about Jesus. My husband and I live in Cherokee Village, Arkansas on the Southfork River, which is where you can find us when we have a day off in the summer! We love the outdoors and Arkansas is a beautiful state if you ever have the chance to explore. I’ve known about Jesus pretty much my entire life, but I didn’t grasp my need for a Savior until I was 19. I had a desire to learn and wished that someone would show me the way, teach me how to understand the Bible, and be an example for me. But I was too shy and proud to ask. It wasn’t until about 8 years later when I truly surrendered my will to God and sought His truth. I pushed my pride aside and became teachable. I had a wonderful woman that took me under her wing and showed me what it was like to be a Christ Follower. It can be intimidating and overwhelming trying to figure it out all by yourself. And that’s exactly why I’m here. My heart is to not just tell you, but to show you, what it means to live this life worthy of the One who saved us. I pray these videos are helpful to you as we walk this path together.
