Meet Our New Team
by Jana Kennedy-Spicer on February 3rd, 2016

​​“So let’s do it – full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.” 
Hebrews 10:22-25 MSG
It's a beautiful thing when God's daughters come together in a unified mission to share the love of God with others. It all begins with a "yes". And then another "yes" and then another, and so on and so on. God calls us to Him, and then He calls us to be together.
Together. To worship. To fellowship. To encourage. To minister.
Every beautiful soul you see here has a divine appointment between them and each of the others. A very single moment when God ordered all of the comings and goings of all of the Earth in such a manner so that His daughter's lives could collide for His divine purpose.
​Today we find ourselves walking God's path together, partnering with each other in ministry and cultivating a community of inspiration, encouragement and support.
And we would love to walk this path with you Soul Friends.
Come along and get to know each of these lovely ladies and I know you will love them as much I do. Follow the blog and watch for each of us to share our testimony, our God stories. Connect with each new friend directly through social media, their blogs and ministries.

​We look forward to spending this year in ministry together with each other and with each of you.
Blessings Soul Friends,
