About Jesus Take the Pen

The purpose of Jesus Take the Pen is to introduce people to the Risen Savior, Jesus Christ, “the way, the truth, and the life.”

The journaling journey that has become Jesus Take the Pen began in 1997 in a second grader’s Level One writing journal.

It all began with, “One day I. was bored. I . imagined I opened windows to other worlds. And I found a friend.” Little did the seven year old author know that the words she wrote in her scribbled hand come to define the next twenty years of her life.

Jesus Take the Pen is the continuation of that young girl’s journal and her journey through life as she opens up windows and always finds her friend, her Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:12-15)
