Welcome! My name is Alyssa J Howard, and I am so glad you are here! First, a little bit about me… I’ve been married since 2010, and I have two beautiful daughters. We also have a super cute corgi named Winnie, and she truly is a part of our family. I love drinking coffee, family movie nights, vacations to Disney, and discussing deep theological topics with my mom. When I’m not writing or homeschooling my girls, you’ll find me teaching dance classes at our local ballet studio.


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.


If you’re anything like me, you’re a work in progress. We all are. Yes, it’s true that the moment we surrender to Christ we are a new Creation, but learning how to live in that new identity takes time. Just like a child learning to walk stumbles and falls, we will stumble and fall as we learn to walk in our new God-given identities. But that doesn’t make us any less a child of God.


You are loved… more than you could possibly imagine. And that is why I began this blog. I hope to grow together as we learn what it truly means to be God’s child.



Sincerely in Christ,

Alyssa J Howard
