About Me

Bible verse

Bethannah Guzman

 

I am so honored that you're taking the time to get to know me better. We may have some common threads that bring our kindred hearts together. You may find yourself feeling like you found a needed friend or perhaps a mentor you desire to learn more from.

Maybe you're a mom like me, married, like to travel, love Jesus, can dance like nobody's business, and have everybody convinced you're an extrovert until you disappear for a while. Hee, hee!

Or perhaps, like me too, you've been down some rugged roads? Wonder how a good God could allow so much heartbreak and trauma? Dumbstruck by how your pillow could not have blown a hole out the back from the depth’s of your screams. Bewildered by how you've managed to make it this far having so much stacked against you? I get it. I really do.

Life is tough and impossible to navigate alone. I have been incredibly blessed to have mentors and counselors come alongside me and help me navigate what seemed like unimaginable storms to brave through. I learned valuable tools to grow deeper in my relationship with Christ, discovered Biblical Self-Care, found my identity in Christ, and broke through the walls of hopelessness and shame that had me bound.

I haven't arrived at a place of all-knowing. I'm not your go-to girl for unattainable perfection-gleaning notions. I won't sugarcoat the mess and stuff a spoonful of sugar down your scratchy throat. I will, however, plant seeds of hope. Offer directional wisdom, application, and powerful prayer. I will be your sister in Christ that cheers you on, encourages you, and even makes you laugh when tears are coming down your cheeks!

I created products just for you, Sister, to remind you of your worth and value in Christ. Whether it's the books I'm writing or the new products I'm creating, I aim to offer seeds of hope that your identity can be restored through the Holy Spirit.
