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…

It has almost become a thing of integrity and ... Read More about Our Battle is Not Against Flesh and Blood

4 Truths We Can All Learn From Kanye West

I don't usually dive into current events or pop culture on this blog. But when it comes to recent events with Kanye West, I found myself wanting to write. To say that his very public profession of faith has rocked the culture, especially that of Christian culture, would be an understatement. Some praise God for all He has done in and through Kanye. Others wonder if his conversion to Christianity ... Read More about 4 Truths We Can All Learn From Kanye West

Spiritual Growth 101: When God Uses Your Past to Shape the Future

Do you believe that God uses your past? All of us have a history... victories, defeats, regrets, sorrows, joys, achievements... and the list goes on. For some of us, we take great joy in our past and our memories. For others, we try to escape the past or forget about it all together. And for many of us still, we fall somewhere in the middle between joyfully looking back at some parts and trying to ...

Spiritual Growth 101: When God Positions You For Greatness

The Bible is full of stories telling of men and women who were used by God for specific purposes. These people were positioned by God to be at the right place at the right time to change the course of history. Truth be told, God positions you and me in the same way. It's easy to read these stories and think "Wow. God really had His hand in that!" One such example is the story of Queen Esther. In ...
