Abide Collective began in mid-2015 and after a few name changes permanently found one that matched the focus that was in mind when it started. The mission is to encourage believers to be intentionally in God’s Word and spend time with Him through prayer, as well as to grow together as a community by sharing His Word, encouragement, and testimonies.
The Virtuous Heart Project launched in July 2017. It was specifically designed to dig deeper into Scripture to understand in true context the different virtues, characteristics, and behaviors that God calls believers to exhibit in order that we may know how to better display them and grow in godliness.
Abide Co. Wellness launched in early 2018 as a journal of my personal journey with all-around wellness: physically, nutritionally, mentally, and spiritually. The mission verse is 1 Corinthians 10:31, which says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Everything we do, is to be for God’s glory. Our bodies are His Spirit’s temple, so everything we do with actions and speech, as well as physical well-being and internal health, mentally and spiritually, should all be done to God’s pleasure.
In addition to these, we are also currently an affiliate with The Daily Grace Co, partnering with Grit & Virtue as a GVAdvocate and People Hope as a part of their prayer and connection teams, a writing ambassador for Lane of Roses and a contributing writer to We Are Beautiful.
