After his family crumbled, Jason left home and soon plummeted into poverty, sometimes scrambling for his next bite to eat. During a mountain hike one afternoon, he cried out to the skies, hoping to make some sort of sense out of his pain. Hours later, he picked up his guitar and wrote a song that would change the course of the rest of his life.
Jason soon found himself living a lifestyle he'd never dared to dream of -- dining with celebrities in Beverly Hills, representing top record producers and recording artists from around the globe, furnishing a million dollar mansion on the beach, and working closely with some of the world's most prominent stars. But on the balcony of a five-star hotel one lonely night, he realized that despite all the fame and fortune, he was completely empty inside.
Jason Davis' story is more than another rags to riches tale. It is more than triumph and tragedy. It is the story of one man's incredible journey in the music industry, and how, in the midst of it all, he found something far more valuable than anything on earth.

Reviewed by Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers' Favorite Jason Davis’ memoir, Your Love Pursues, is a story of living an extraordinary life. At the age of thirty-two, Jason Davis had made it to the top of the music industry; he had it all. Yet, he was completely empty and void of anything real and good. Reaching this apex, he realized that having it all meant nothing. Jason tells of the depths and the heights of his personal story ... a childhood of abuse, poverty, a series of bad relationships and devastating betrayals. He discloses how the darkness followed and imprisoned him. Music was his constant, his therapy, and through it he would find his way out of his deprivation. Success arrived, yet he still longed for something more, SOMETHING BIGGER. A seeker at heart, Jason Davis kept searching until his answer came. His answer was found in Jesus Christ. Leaving behind his fame and money, Jason set out a journey of healing and rebuilding. “There is something powerful about new beginnings ... beginnings offer promise and hope." A memoir takes the reader on a journey. A great memoir is an emotional passage of time that traverses the ups and downs that accompany us through life. A journey through valley and mountain top experiences, epic beginnings and tragic endings, births and ultimately deaths. Your Love Pursues by Jason Davis is one man’s account of his courageous quest for life. Davis’ writing style is simple and eloquent. Although the memoir is written chronologically, Davis captures the attention of his reader by revealing the worst moment of his life. By baiting the reader with the worst possible scenario, you long to hear his unfolding story. Davis poignantly lays out the events and the people that affected his life. Then, he allows you to experience his personal discovery. He speaks boldly, yet gracefully of his relationship with Jesus Christ. Your Love Pursues is a heartfelt, passionate, plainspoken story of Jason Davis’ conversion to Christianity.
¿YOUR LOVE PURSUES A MEMOIR by Jason Davis¿. Never ending inspiration...highly recommended book! This book encompasses so much with surprises at every turn!! It is a honest and revealing look into the tumultuous heart breaking home life and experiences of a young man, and how his love of song writing and music would preserve, rescue and save him. Then as an adult though materially and outwardly he had it all, inside he had hit rock bottom to the point of wanting to die, but God was at the bottom waiting to meet him at his lowest moment and used the gift of music and an amazing revelation of Jesus Christ to save and change his life forever!!! The book inspires by revealing the lengths to which he was willing to go in his determination to seek after the heart of God to do His will, and how God blessed him and continues to honor and reward him even today for seeking Him. This book encourages the reader to seek God first above all things and is a strong testimony that when we seek God we will find Him, and that when we find God we WILL find our calling and God's divine and greater purpose for our lives, to bless and influence the world with the gifts He has placed inside of each of us. The struggles and victories in this book-- both good and bad- has shaped the man, the author, and the leader we know today, Inter-continental Music Executive, Jason Davis, President of One One 7 Media & T.V. Network. The book also gives an inside look in to the dept of depravity to which some aspiring artists and others in the industry have been willing to go for a shot at stardom. Then just when you thought you've heard it all you're surprised again! ...
Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. The author, Jason Davis, uses a writing style that allows the reader to clearly capture the book's message. Jason makes his journey not only relatable to people who are seeking God, but also to anyone who has experienced struggles in their life. There were times I was in tears while reading as I found myself routing for Jason to succeed. After reading this book it can be concluded that Jason is not only a great author, but also an incredible individual. In a world that emphasizes financial success, competition and retaliation, Jason finds a way to prioritize, forgive and be grateful for all of his experiences. Even though Jason discusses his family difficulties that will bring you to tears, he never makes himself into a victim. Instead he uses the positive and the negative circumstances to motivate himself to change his life. Jason not only becomes a leader in the music industry, he becomes an example of how we should all live our lives. Amazing story!
WOW...THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. THIS STORY OF JASON'S LIFE TRANSFORMATION OF HOW HE CAME TO KNOW THE LORD IS FASCINATING.

IT IS A TRUE TRIBUTE TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD HOW HE LEFT EVERYTHING HE HAD AND STARTED OVER TO FOLLOW THE LORD WOW...THIS IS A MUST READ.
I was having a pretty rough week...if i'm honest a pretty rough year until I opened this book. I started reading it before bed around 10 o'clock and never ended up putting it down. I was expecting to gain some perspective on the author but ended up learning a lot more about myself. Thank you for putting your life into words so they could reach me. Moments in the book brought me to tears. I'm not certain why my emotions overtook me so much. I believe it may have been the overwhelming, resounding message that it doesn't matter what has happened up to this point in my life that if I am ready to except God into my life now then everything will be good. Jason Davis truly is doing God's work. Looking forward to sharing the messages I took from this book with everyone I know. After reading this book I opened the bible for the first time in my life. I mean really opened it with the intention of reading it and growing my relationship with God. And to this day I am still growing in God and my life is only getting better and better. This book is Life Changing!
