The Author

Welcome! My name is Alyssa J Howard, and I am so glad you are here! A few years ago, God put something on my heart… a desire to write and to share with others all of the amazing things He was stirring within me. You see, I spent most of my life as a Christian. I went to Christian school, attended church, and grew up in a Christian home… but it wasn’t until college that God truly got a hold of my life and placed in me a passion for learning and growing in Him. I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in theological studies from Liberty Theological Seminary in 2010. Since then, God has taught me so much through His Word as well as through the Holy Spirit. He has taught me what it truly means to live a Holy Spirit-led life. I started this blog in 2014, and it’s been amazing to see God work through the process, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for this ministry. Click here to learn more…

Even though they were imperfect as humans can be, these heroes trusted God, persevered through trials, and obeyed even when it was difficult. In fact, many of them defied cultural norms and stood up for their faith in God... even when faced with death. Daniel was one of these men. He ...

4 Practical Ways to Grow Spiritually in the Coming Year

Growing up is a part of life. But truth be told, it is often easier said than done. Growth is hard. It can even be painful at times. We go through difficulties, persevere through trials, and learn what to do (and often what not to do) in varying circumstances. As hard as it can be to grow, can you imagine what life would be like if we didn't? We need growth. God designed us for growth. While one ...

Are You Walking by the Spirit in Your Daily Life?

As Christians, we know there's a right way to live and a wrong way to live. We know that God calls us to live holy lives and to avoid sin. But the truth is that apart from Him, this is an impossible task. The Law proved this fact in that no one could actually keep all of God's commands... with the exception of Jesus, of course. All of humanity was enslaved by sin, yet Jesus made a way for us to be ... Read More about Are You Walking by the Spirit in Your Daily Life?

Behold, God is Making All Things New (including you!)

For those of you who have been following this 31-day series on our identity in Christ, you know that it has been quite a journey! We took a look at life before salvation in Jesus and the consequences of our slavery to sin and death. In contrast, we learned about who we are now in Christ according to His Word. We are alive and free! But the truth is that none of this matters unless we act upon our ... Read More about Behold, God is Making All Things New (including you!)
