100 Promises of God

As Christians, i’m sure we have all struggled to find the right words to pray at times. I have found that sometimes you don’t need lengthy prayers, but rather to simply declare out loud over your situation what God has already said and promised us in the Bible. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says : “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes”…


It All Starts With One.

My younger sister and I were just 17 and 18 years old when we made the decision to step out in faith and say “yes” to what God was calling us to. Little did we know that five years later, that simple yes would lead to nearly 16,000 pairs of shoes being delivered to people in 21 countries around the world. The past five years…


{ Faith and a Fractured Vertebrae: God’s Miraculous Healing }

“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,  and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death. Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them.” {Psalm 107:19-21} I must admit that I don’t claim to know or understand everything about God’s healing power. I…


{ When Love Becomes an Action: Starbucks & a Homeless Man }

“Nothing you do in this life will ever matter unless it is about loving God and loving the people He has made.”  – Francis Chan In church on Sunday, the Pastor preached from John 15. Specifically, he shared the challenge to live out the final verse of that chapter, verse 27, which says that we MUST testify of Him. He shared about how God didn’t…


{Lets Talk About Sex: Why We Waited Until Our Wedding Night}

  Photo: Olivia Rae Photography   I’m sure many of you were taken back to see a blog post about sex. But, what I’m about to share is something I believe God has been laying on my heart for a while now. Although this is a super personal topic and something that takes a lot of vulnerability to even talk about, I pray that our story…

  • So thankful for the past few months to step back
    1 month ago by andreasmith23 So thankful for the past few months to step back, refocus and gain perspective. Still some unknowns, but never felt more confident that God has a perfect plan for Brandon and I. Joy, peace and fullness of life. Trusting & waiting to see His perfect plan revealed. Thankful for grace & mercy when my heart is overwhelmed or filled with discontent, envy, fear & doubt. Trying to soak up every moment as God works in & through us, reminding myself to be content in the NOW, and not always looking ahead to the future. So much joy in the simple
  • Not enough words to say how much I love
    4 weeks ago by andreasmith23 Not enough words to say how much I love & appreciate my dad. Happy birthday Most of you know my dad’s a surgeon, but what I admire about him the most is his humility and love for others and how he puts his faith at the center of all he does. Before every surgery, he prays with his patients and their families if they are willing. He has the best heart. The world needs more Charlie Coles.
  • Many times when God isnt changing your circumstance its because
    1 week ago by andreasmith23 Many times when God isn’t changing your circumstance, it’s because He’s mostly concerned with changing YOU within the circumstance. Your character, your inner strength, & your integrity matters to Him because they are everlasting qualities. The wisdom, the strength and the maturity that grows within you are all things you’re going to need to sustain the calling God has on your life. Know that there is purpose in all things. - Britney Moses
