Wondering if you’re presenting yourself to the public in a way that brings God glory? Find what you need in the Fan Service and Image sections.

Each devotional includes prayers and applicable Bible verses for fans as well as for performers:

Is your favorite performer sick or injured? Turn to the Healing section.

Are they going through a tough time in their career? Go to Difficulty Getting Work.

Want to support them in their efforts to share their faith? Try Social Media, Sharing God with Others or Taking a Stand.

About the Author

Teresa Santoski committed her life to Jesus Christ in 1996 and has found herself having one adventure after another ever since. That wasn’t exactly what she anticipated when she became a non-denominational, Bible-believing Christian, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

A ten-year veteran of the newspaper industry, Teresa most recently covered arts and entertainment for The Telegraph, the second largest newspaper in the state of New Hampshire. In this role, she interviewed numerous musicians, artists, actors, filmmakers, authors and other creative professionals of local, national and international renown. She continues to write her award-winning humor column, Tete-a-tete, which has developed a devoted following since its debut in May 2008.

Though she graduated with honors from Wellesley College in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, Teresa also studied Japanese language, history, film and literature and received an extensive extracurricular education in Korean and Japanese pop culture.

In 2006, she traveled to China and Tibet as a member of the New Hampshire Friendship Chorus, photographing and blogging about her experiences as a special project for The Telegraph. This journey led to additional interests in Chinese, Tibetan, Taiwanese and Thai pop culture and helped cement her desire to encourage performers in the East Asian entertainment industry in their Christian faith.

Teresa served as a critique group facilitator and member of the leadership team for her regional chapter of Word Weavers during its affiliation with the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild. She continues to participate in a small critique group of committed Christian writers when her schedule allows.

She resides in New Hampshire, where the trees easily outnumber the East Asian restaurants, but you can still find excellent sushi, stone pot bibimbap and boba tea.
