Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7

Hallelujah Praise GOD! I want to introduce a wonderful sister in Christ who has an amazing voice and an amazing heart.

Today we are interviewing a wonderful woman in Christ using her wonderful talents to Glorify our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST! Amen! She is part of the Worship team with the Latin Ministries at NEW HOPE CHURCH located in DURHAM, NC. (My Church!)

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Here’s Her Story,

I started singing when I was 5 years old. Fell in love with it. It was the only thing I wanted to do. Through out elementary, middle and high school I sang my little heart out. One day when I was 15 I got invited to sing in a gospel choir. Boy oh boy did that open up my eyes. I was blown away by the power it had over people. All I wanted to do was sing gospel music. In high school I was offered a gig with a radio station to do some songs at some festivals and get paid, but something in my heart said I wasn’t ready and I turned them down. Not long there after I met someone and we ended up moving in together and having 2 beautiful boys. We started going to church and again I wanted to sing. But unfortunately I wasn’t allowed because I was not married. I couldn’t even become a member. I prayed for years that one day I might be able to sing in church because singing for money was no where near on my mind. Singing for the Lord was what I really wanted.

January 22, 2011 I moved to NC. A few weeks after I saw on t.v. a service at Newhope Church and I was absolutely blown away by the word and the music. That very weekend I visited the church and have not left since. I tried to try out for the worship band, and for some reason I kept missing the practices. Finally I gave up and said ” I guess I wasn’t meant to sing in church”. Little to my surprise in October of 2011 I met Pastor Johel and Sara Rodriguez, because my mom and step dad were going to be renewing their vows and they wanted me to sing at their ceremony. So I met Sara at her house along with the Pastor and I sand for them the song my mom wanted me to sing for her. And at that moment I heard 2 words, “YOU’RE HIRED!”. From that point on I was now part of the Latino Ministry at Newhope Church in Durham, doing what I had prayed for, for YEARS! I was finally happy.

God always answers our prayers, and for years I asked him to allow me to sing and thought he wasn’t listening to me. But, He was. He heard all my prayers and knew all my secrets and all my fears and He wanted me to be strong and able to worship Him in all honesty. I am free. I get to do what I love and praise God at the same time. And perhaps at the same time, help to save lives through my
gift and get them to accept Jesus Christ at their Lord and savior.

That’s so amazing Milly & very encouraging. ♥

What’s your favorite scripture?

I don’t have a favorite scripture, I am still trying to learn how to read the bible and understand it.

What is a scripture that you turn to when things are not going as planned?

I usually just pray and then open up the bible to where ever it opens up to.

Before performing what do you do to get ready? Do you have a routine or do you just go with the flow?

I always, always, always have a hot tea with honey and pepermint. Then pray and go with the flow.

Have you written any songs? And if so how many?

I have written many songs but only ONE christian song.

Do you have any Pets?

No pets…Bad allergies.

I know you are a wonderful mother and a loving wife, what has been challenging and what do you Praise God for in these roles?

It’s been challenging, raising 2 boys alone, even though I’m married now, it’s very difficult being away from one another. But I thank GOD everyday for what I have, knowing there are others less fortunate.

What is the greatest impact that GOD has done or placed in your life other than music, your children, and your marriage?

He removed me from a life of partying and hanging out, and brought me to NC where He somehow placed me right where I needed to be and allowed me to continue to grow spiritually and help others at the same time.

What would you like to tell those on that difficult road who may be reading this article?

You’re never too damaged to be used by God… He wants all of you and every imperfection that comes along so that he can restore you and give you eternal life in His kingdom.

How do you believe you are making a difference?

I don’t know if I’m making a difference, but I do believe the gift God has given me helps others to worship.

Today we are Interviewing a wonderful young lady using her talents to Glorify our Lord and Savior JESUS! Amen!

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. Hebrews 4:12

Here’s Her Story,

Hello readers! My name is Ashley Rae and I am a 17 year old after Gods own heart! I have a passion to see this generation rise up and live for Christ.

When I was 12 years old, God called me into ministry. I am a singer/song writer and have led worship at various churches. I felt God had something big for me! When I was 14, I felt God calling me to plan an event on Valentines Day called “passion for purity”. Purity has always been my passion! After I hosted this event, I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life! I want to travel the world and host purity events!! I want to share MY story and I wanna hear YOUR story! I have never had a boyfriend, and I am proud of that. I believe God will send the right one. Until then, I am falling in love with God! I am realizing purity starts in the heart. I am trying to live a life of purity not just sexually , but in my heart and mind. I want to filter what goes in my mind and respect my body in the way I dress. Please check out my ministry on twitter : passion_4purity — Facebook- passion for purity or YouTube itsashleyraemusic

Thank you! God bless:)
Ashley Rae

Wow Ashley you seem pretty focused.

What is a scripture that you turn to when things are not going as planned?

Romans 12:12 “Be joyful in hope, patient in troubles, and pray at all times.” This verse has always been close to my heart! During each tribulation I face, I always go back to this verse. The Lord strengthens me!

How do you come up with your lyrics when making a song?

I start off praying and listening to worship songs to set my heart in worship. I start playing the guitar and the words come. The Lord speaks, and I write 🙂

How many songs have you written?

Over 60.

Do you have any pets?

I do! A cat. His name is Billie 🙂

What is your favorite Scripture?

Honestly, the whole chapter of Romans 12 is my favorite! And anything in James.

Do you have a Routine? Or do you just go with the Flow?

Go with the flow!!!

What is the greatest impact that GOD has done or placed in your life other than music and purity?

A camp I attend each summer, Bigstuf. That’s where God called me into ministry, actually.

What would you like to tell the young ladies reading this article?

That you ARE worth the wait! Treat your bodies with respect! You were created by the most high King! You are His princess and He has the best for you. Wait for His leading, by following Him, and trusting in Him completely. Romans 12:12

How do you believe you are making a difference?

I can show young ladies that it is possible to wait and that you can still be looked at as “attractive” when youre being modest. I know of one married couple who said my purity bracelet helped them so much along their courtship! That ment to much to me.
