Dana Isaiah Thomas, husband to “American Idol” alum Jordin Sparks, is releasing a powerful new devotional tackling issues all young adults face, from sexual temptation and social media to busyness and betrayal.
With a foreword from Christian rap/hip hop artist Lecrae, A Higher Calling: Claiming God’s Best for Your Life includes 31 “mini chapter” devotions reminding young readers that events that seem like setbacks can actually be springboards to a closer, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Thomas told The Christian Post that every devotional, which also includes a discussion guide for group use, is written from personal experience. The 26-year-old husband and father admitted he has made mistakes in the past — and wants to encourage other young people to understand that they, too, can have a fresh start through Christ.
“I wrote these devotions because these are issues I can personally address,” he said. “If you have someone my age who is open about their mistakes and willing to admit where they’ve messed up, others will listen. Mistakes are going to happen; they’re inevitable. But, I want young people to know that they are not defined by their mistakes, and they can start over at any point.”
