As you’ve probably noticed, last year I started getting ‘intentional’ about blogging. That’s because God has really put it on my heart to use my blog as a sort of ministry.

However, I’ve had a dilemma. I really like writing posts that inspire, encourage and edify the body of Christ. But I also really have a heart for reaching those who are nonbelievers or skeptics. For years, I’ve had a burden for defending the Christian worldview and getting into controversial topics, which are usually geared more toward non-Christians.

According to all the experts, it is important to have a very clear and defined “target market”… in other words, to know who your readers are.

So, the dilemma was that I’ve had 2 different groups that my posts are written for, which means this blog was going through a sort of identity crisis.

Problem solved!

After praying about it, I finally got the idea that I can have 2 separate blogs. One for the inspiring posts for believers (this blog) and the other for the controversial or apologetics-type posts, aimed toward nonbelievers.

So I’m excited to announce that I’m starting a second blog. It’s going to be called Great And Mighty Things – greatandmightythings.com – and all those types of posts will go there.

The title is based on Jeremiah 33:3

Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.
Jeremiah 33:3

Ashes to Beauty will continue to be focused on spiritual growth, learning more about God and encouraging one another to be the person God has created us to be!

The new project is underway…

I’m building Great and Mighty things now, which for me is fun and exciting! I hope to have it up and running by this weekend or next week.

Also – I eventually would like Great and Mighty Things to be a group effort. So if there is anyone who has a heart for defending the biblical worldview (including topics related to politics and social issues), please let me know, because I really want to have contributors!

Thanks and blessings, you all!

    • Yelena, this makes me so happy!!! I would LOVE to have you contribute. I’m still finishing up the design of the site and all that…I’ve been juggling lots of different things, so it’s taking longer than I wanted it to. But it’s almost ready to go live. So I’m excited, and as I said, I want to have other Christian writers involved, so I’m SO glad to hear from you on this! Thanks so much and I’ll keep you posted! God bless you too, and all the amazing work you do! 🙂
