Who We Are

[OUR MISSION] We exist to edify the security and strength of women everywhere in Jesus Christ. Our desire is to see women transformed by the Gospel and challenged by Biblical teaching to stand on their identity in Jesus Christ.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
[Galations 2:20]
