And then God said,
Let there be France

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place.
Acts 17.24-26, ESV

The purpose of this site:

1. All things France & French Culture

France is an unequivocal hot mess of glory and tragedy all at the same time. We are here to celebrate the good and bring light & truth to the darkness. And recruit you to pray, learn French, and move here.

2. French Cultural Intelligence Training

Many have moved to France - but few have stayed - culturally burned out. Parents leave with regrets and children have suffered.

We want to counter this problem by providing the best possible preparation and mitigation:

French Cultural Intelligence Training

5. French Real Estate
