LEARN ABOUT THE FOUNDERS, THE MISSION AND THE VOLUNTEERS.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Co-founders Jennifer and Aja met at a contemporary dance class in Florida back in 2007. After attending the same class for several weeks they were partnered up for a dance piece and Aja noticed a WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) bracelet on Jennifer's wrist. Upon further discussion they realized they attended the same mega church. They both eventually joined the Dance Ministry at their church and a wonderful friendship blossomed.
Several years later Jennifer moved back up north, and she and Aja worked together on different faith based internet projects. Many ideas crossed the drawing board, but the concept of OurLifeSongs Ministry was the one they felt called to pursue. It became a way to share the glory of the Lord through testimonies, by telling incredible stories about what God has done and is doing in people's lives. It answered their desire to bring forth the light and love of Jesus Christ to help encourage women who were hurting or discouraged. Along this journey they have met many wonderful ladies eager to do the same thing. Their hope is to unite women with different backgrounds, testimonies and struggles to join together in a movement to raise up the name of the Lord by Speaking Life, Love and Hope into the lives of others.

MEANING BEHIND THE NAME
The name of OurLifeSongs Ministry was first inspired by a Casting Crowns song called Lifesong. Its lyrics speak about the desire to sign God's name to the end of everyday and that our life be offered as a living sacrifice to Him.
We have met many women, including the two of us, that have had incredible testimonies of lives surrendered to Jesus Christ. So the "LifeSong" in our name represents the testimony of a life given to God, and the "Our" is the body of Christ because we are in this together.
1st Thessalonians 5:11 tells us to encourage one another and build each other up. This is the hope of OurLifeSongs Ministry.
The cross equals love and salvation for everyone, it is forgiveness and freedom, and hope for the future. The heart behind the ministry is to share these revelations and help women in any way we can. We understand how easy it is to get caught up in "fitting in", wanting more social media “likes” and “followers”, or the feeling of thinking happiness comes from our body shape, home décor or family status. But, just “feeling good” will not breathe life into our souls, it is only Jesus that can do that.
We invite you to come on this journey with us, all are welcome to serve with us, show kindness, selflessness and compassion to each other.

Let’s be a generation of women with Jesus-healed hearts that make it their mission to Speak Life, Love and Hope in order to comfort and encourage this hurting world. Changed hearts = changed words = changed actions.
