The New York Times bestselling author and senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, Jay W.

The plan can be used any time of the year or be adapted to a penitential season on the Christian calendar, such as Advent or Lent.

We have no affiliations to any service we cover, we don’t get sponsored, we pay for the tests we take, and we have no obligation to anyone other than our readers. If that doesn’t sound like a pretty fair approach already, we have a secret that gives us an edge: KnowYourDNA is powered by the passion and expertise of trained geneticists and genetics
