His Wisdom for Her World

Candi Finch

Candi’s greatest passion is to see teenagers and women come to know the Lord and become mature disciples of Christ. Several women invested in her life when she was a new believer in high school, and the impact they had on her reminds her daily of the positive influence we can have on others for Christ.

Shady Ladies of Scripture

“Am I Pretty or Ugly?”  Since 2009, close to 25,000 teen girls have posted videos of themselves on YouTube asking that very question.
