New blog feature: Resource Library

Good afternoon friends,

I hope that you are all well. I wanted to write a short blurb about something that I’ve worked really hard on to be of service to you. When I’m looking up different topics and issues related to living as a Christian young adult, I come across many great resources. I find free e-books, sermons, videos, booklets, articles, blog posts, music and more. Some of the resources that I’ve come across online have been exactly what I needed to read at a particular time in life, and I feel that it’s only fitting to make these resources available to those who may come to my blog looking for insight on a particular topic.

So today, I formally welcome you to check out Where He Makes All Things Beautiful’s new resource library. Feel free to browse, explore and share. A friend of mine already started a book group from a great free resource she found there and it’s helping many of the women in a tremendous way. Also, if there is ever a particular topic you may be looking for Godly counsel or advice on, feel free to comment somewhere on the blog or use the Say Hello feature to ask me. More than likely, I know of something that can help.

God bless you and have an awesome day!

Brittany

“Ninety percent…

“Ninety percent of evangelical Christians send their children to public schools. And between 70-88% of children of evangelicals have nothing to do with spiritual things by end of freshmen year in college. From K-12, children spend 14,000 seat hours in school. The average Christian family spends less than 30 minutes per week discussing spiritual matters.” – Dr. Voddie Baucham from his message, ‘Whoever Controls The Schools, Controls The World’

Get Amber to Harvard

Hello friends,

I hope that you are well today on this fine Monday afternoon. I just got home from women’s Bible study and I’m feeling awesome. As you know, I’m passionate about helping those around me. Whether it’s supporting a friend’s project, praying for others or even helping people learn about God, I love to be a blessing. In this post, I’m going to tell you about a friend of mine and how God has opened the door for me to be a blessing in her life and how you can to.

I met Amber K. Boyd in November of 2010 at a mutual friend’s home after church. I was new to Atlanta and she was one of the first people I was introduced to. Although I had never met her before that day, it didn’t take me long to be inspired by her and to realize that Amber was special. She’s the type of person who lights up a room with her personality, can make you see things in a different light and and who chases after God with diligence. Amber is a leader. She is a trailblazer among her peers and lives to make God famous. Not only this, but she has a passion for the underserved. After having countless conversations with her about education, poverty, investing in women, the brain, teaching, Jesus and everything in between, I can confidently say that she’s the type of person who will change the world if given the opportunity.

What’s amazing about this is, for the past year, Amber has been on a personal journey of faith in God while seeking her purpose. I won’t tell all the details of her story because you can read them here, but instead of settling for mere existence by doing a job that just pays the bills, she decided to leave it all and seek God until he showed her what He had for her. And boy, did He answer. A few months ago, Amber was accepted into Harvard University to study educational neuroscience. This is an amazing honor! However, Harvard is expensive and well, she can’t afford to get there on her own. But, she already knows that God has got the logistics taken care of because, after all, this is a journey of faith isn’t it?

From now until August 1st, a few friends of ours and myself are putting our all into raising funds for Amber to get to Harvard. Not just because she’s our friend, but because we know that God has a job for her to do, we believe that she’ll do great things in the future and because we want to support her in fulfilling her destiny! If you are interested in learning more about our campaign, visit the website Get Amber to Harvard and if you’d like to invest in this awesome young woman, be sure to visit her fundraising page here.
