After this Jesus went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at a tax booth.  And he said to him, "Follow me." And leaving everything, he rose and followed him.  
Luke 5:27-28

Following Jesus is the most exciting experience, one that rocks our lives and makes it impossible to be the same person that we once were.  But sometimes life just gets mundane and downright boring; and in the daily grind, we can lose sight of what it means to follow Him- we forget to put our faith into action.  Here are some resources that we've found so helpful for us when we hit that point in our lives.  So check these out, and may we continue to find extraordinary grace and joy in following Him.
