I am honored to be the first one to sign in your guestbook Arista Michelle! You are an exceptional woman of God and am so inspired and encouraged by your testimony as well as your heart for the Lord. You are like David, after God's own heart! Let me leave you with this Word: "I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." Psalm 16:8 As you continue to follow His Will may you always remember He is with you and that you will always be on solid ground! fearLESS!
Thank you for your encouraging words, Carmie! You know that I treasure them ALWAYS :)
Wow!!!!! That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of the ministry of this amazing woman. We were blessed to have her minister in music at a leadership retreat and our team was so thankful to be ushered into the presence of God. The pour out so much into the lives of young people, and it was truly a kiss of Jesus to have Arista Michelle to lead us in sweet worship. On a personal note I also have three small children and I enjoy teaching them about Christ, but it certainly helps to have help and her book has done just that. Very simple, colorful, and great conversation starter for me and the little ones. God bless you and your ministry!
Thank you so very very much, Claire! That leadership retreat was truly a taste of heaven. That memory is very close to my heart. Thank you also for giving feedback on the Best News Ever book. It's so good to hear that other kids are finding it easy to understand the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Arista, just wanted to thank you for coming out to Puerto Rico and blessing us with your God-given talents. What an incredible time of worship we had. Thank you for blending in with our Worship Team and dropping in a few nuggets of wisdom to them.
May God continue to bless your ministry. Hopefully you can come back and do it again!
Pastor Efren, it was truly an honor to be used by God there. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to worship with you all. I do hope we can come back and do it again!
I am so glad that we were able to meet you and be blessed by your singing and testimony. May the good Lord continue to bless you, your husband and family wherever you go. And remember that in Puerto Rico you have brothers & sisters that lift you up! Keep up the good fight...:)
Cynthia, thank you so much for your encouragement! You are such a genuine sister in Christ. You have such a heart for God and for poeple. You will be a great mentor to other sisters in Christ :) Fighting the good fight <3
Michelle is your quintessential artist, visually, vocally, and verbally. Her art has the best of inspirations, a Divine inspiration, which makes her art authentic and universal. When I heard Michelle was going to be in town near me around the time of a certain women's conference last year, I made it a top priority to introduce her to the conference organizer so that Michelle could grace us with her vocals. Also, Michelle's children's book about the gospel of Jesus Christ is so very compelling - I used it to teach Children's Church and it was easy to keep the kids engaged with the graphics and simplicity of the message. I look forward to Michelle's continued growth as an artist and as a sister in Christ.
Tina, thank you so very much for taking the time to share some words about the book. Praise God that the children are understanding the "Best News Ever" that Jesus brings hope.
