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. I spent most of my life as a Christian… but it wasn’t until college that God truly got a hold of my life and placed in me a passion to learn and grow in Him. Since then, God 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…

Be a good person with a good heart, be kind to all, make good choices, and do the right thing even when it's hard. And on the surface, there isn't much wrong with this way of thinking.

Yes, your actions may change... but ultimately, you are still uniquely you. Because of ... Read More about What It Really Means to Be a New Creation

4 Reasons Why Christianity is Not a Label… It’s an Identity

Religion has become a matter of preference in our Western culture. It's a box we check on a form or on social media. But is it possible that we've missed the point? If we take a good, hard look at what the Bible says about God and the world He has created, we find that Christianity is not a label we can choose. Our faith is so much more than that. It's everything. ... Read More about 4 Reasons Why Christianity is Not a Label… It’s an Identity

When Culture Dictates Your Point of View

As a parent, I notice more. I watch as my daughters grow and learn from the world around them. Sometimes it's a good thing. And other times, I cringe at the bad habits they're picking up. I don't remember it being this way when I was growing up. Then again... I'm not sure we realize how much culture dictates our point of view. It's not until we witness others being affected by the cultural norms ... Read More about When Culture Dictates Your Point of View

Our Battle is Not Against Flesh and Blood

Our battle is not against flesh and blood... If I didn't know better, I would have to say that today's culture is all about the fight. We stand up. We protest. And we make sure that our voices are heard loud and clear on social media. This is true no matter what your political or spiritual stance is. We join the fight and stand up for our "truth." It has almost become a thing of integrity and ... Read More about Our Battle is Not Against Flesh and Blood
