Publishing stories from a well-versed pool of writers and creatives from all over the globe, The Source is here to bring you a variety of fresh perspectives, honest experiences, and intentional messages.

As our founder would say, this publication is designed to “spread the good news,” so that’s our intent. 
We hope the stories shared foster something new within you at every line read.
