What is Bold & Beloved?
A while back, as I (Rachel) approached my college graduation I found myself feeling lost and unsure of the future. I was able to avoid making a career choice for a few years by going through the motions of attending college, for a major I didn’t particularly love or have a passion for. I was overwhelmed by the reality that I would be graduating soon, as it would mean I would finally have to figure out what I was going to do with my life - a choice that had been weighing on me for years.
As I (Sadie), entered into my freshman year of college with hopeful ambitions of finding lifelong friends, excelling in all classes, meeting the man of my dreams, and becoming an individual person who no longer needed my old life to define me, I quickly realized that I was in the wrong. At this time, I began to see that life was giving me a ton of lemons, but I was not ready to make lemonade. I was at a stage in life where I was away from home and learning to navigate the world by myself…but I was forgetting to include someone very important. I was driven by my own desires and forgot to seek God’s will for me.
Not knowing one another as more than acquaintances at the time, we both separately felt God place a call on our lives to speak God’s truth with other girls. After avoiding our callings and wrestling with God for control in our individual lives, when we both laid down our self-centered desires in exchange for pursuing the purpose God had for our lives, the rest fell into place in ways only God could orchestrate!
God revealed to both of us that He wanted us to do more and be more for Him. Our lives were not intended to be self-centered and self-pleasing, but instead to be lived with passion and purpose. As Christians, we are not called to be complacent and to go through the motions, we are called to live with a fire for Christ and to go out and be His hands and feet! After reaching out and connecting with one another, we saw that God was aligning our mission and hearts in the same direction.
Bold & Beloved is rooted in the verse Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
This verse speaks life into us as we realize that God created each one of us for a specific purpose - His purpose, and when we dedicate our lives to pursuing and living for that purpose, that’s when we’ll thrive!
Bold & Beloved is intended to be a gathering place for a community of Christians to find and pursue the purpose God has placed on their hearts with a burning passion. We believe in ordinary people doing extraordinary things by pushing out of their comfort zones for Christ, letting go their plans to pursue His plans, and living without fear.
Through this ministry, we are changing the world. Each of you as part of the Bold & Beloved community has your own unique gifts, voice, and purpose that God handcrafted you with. Together we are building a movement of women that are finding their calling and pursuing a Christ-filled life. We are filling one another with encouragement, inspiration, and passion, established in the Words of Christ, to accomplish more than we could do alone.
Bold & Beloved is meant for every single woman out there. The college girl, the homemaker, the athlete, the girl boss, the mother, the artist, the wife, the businesswoman, the high school student, and any other type of woman who is looking for more.
So, if you’re ready to go after the purpose you were created for, join us.
You can do more and be more.
