Alyssa J HowardMeet Alyssa J Howard:

I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am married to an amazing man, and we have two beautiful daughters (or should I say energetic toddlers!)

Growing up in a Christian home, I attended private Christian school for most of my life. It wasn’t until high school that things got “real.” My relationship with God became a personal choice, instead of simply being the religion of my parents. After attending college at the University of Montana, I returned to my roots in Christian education. I received my Bachelor of Science in religion from Liberty University, and then continued my education receiving a Master of Arts degree in theological studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. My passion has, and always will be, to write and teach others about God’s love and His Word.

 

About the Blog:

When I finally entered the “real world” and my faith was put to the test, I struggled. I struggled with my beliefs, with who I was as a person, and with how to cope in a world that doesn’t want or need God. I had a wake up call…one that made me realize I needed to change my worldview.

The Bible is clear that we need Christian fellowship and influence. It’s the very reason we attend church and surround ourselves with other believers. We need each other for encouragement and accountability. At the same time, however, our mission as believers is to reach the world with the good news of Christ.

 

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (NLT)

 

 

In order to be light in the darkness, we have to be willing to shine in the darkest of places…to step out of our comfort zones and trust that God will be with us.

My hope for my writing is to not only be a light in the darkness, but to also equip and encourage others to do the same.

 

 

In Christ,

Alyssa J Howard

One thought on “About the Author”

  1. Hi Alyssa,

    So wonderful to have come across your blog this morning. 🙂 I’ve been reading some of your posts and I must say there is something in you that has led me to make contact with you.

    My name is Octavia Govender and I’m all the way from Johannesburg, South Africa. My husband and I are also believers and we totally stand up for Christians to realize and believe that they are new creations in and through Christ. Just this morning we were having a chat about double mindedness and how we as believers constantly confess condemnatory thoughts over our own lives and those of others. I’ve just been meditating on this thought and God is really speaking to me about this matter.

    I did sign up to your newsletter, but I’d love to get to know you on a more personal level. You seem like a wonderful person and I’d like to get to know you. You actually inspired me, because ever since recently what God has spoken to me, I am so full in my spirit, bubbling over with things to share with others and uplifting and building up the saints.

    Thank you for the work that you are doing. May God continue to use you in His Kingdom here on earth and continue to abundantly bless you and your family. Hope to hear from you soon.

    With Blessings & Love
