In 2010, my wife and I owned and operated an employee benefits firm specializing in group health insurance. I had been in the insurance business for 19 years and had just hired a new assistant.

Then I came across 1 Peter 4:10, which says, “Each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 

I am in insurance, what can I do? Insurance, that’s what I can do.

So we decided to sell our agency and to start a company based on Acts 20:35, which says, “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:

"It is more blessed to give than to receive." This is how we are different:

We are a local, independent broker, we give half of what we receive to charities we endorse, and we HELP guide people to the right plan for them.
