Hi there and thanks for popping over here to meet me, Joan, and to know a little about this slice of heaven on the web!
Not trying to sound clichéd but …
Like Martin Luther King, ‘I had a dream’ :)
A Place For Beginners In Bible Study
Where Christians, new believers, and beginners in Christ can come to learn about the ways of God. Where they can be given the tools and tutored so that they themselves can become good stewards of Christ; able to study to show themselves worthy to be called a Son of God.
A Place of Guidance
Filled with videos, bible study aides and practical recipes so that you and I can learn how to dig deep into the bible and discover biblical truths.
A Place of Enjoyment
Filled with fun, laughter and support as you enjoy the word of God, and you build an intimate relationship with God in sweet communion.
A place where you find the word of God a joy to read: a treasure trove of information under every stone you unearth while being soul fed. You’ll become giddy with excitement to do it all over again the next day!
An Eye Opening Place
A land where you discover new revelations and your eyes are opened to what God wants you to know through the pages of scripture.
A Place of Fellowship
With the freedom to ask questions, share stories and have fun as you grow in the spirit.
A Place for Your Whole Man
Providing biblical lessons on Spiritual Growth, Divine Health and Abundance. The Bible presents not only direction for the spirit, but the body and daily life as well.
I had this dream.
And I set out to make this vision a reality. Then Positivelydrivenchristian.com was born. 5 years in the making, but finally here!
And I’m so happy that you’ve decided to join us.
And this home away from home is what I came up with. And it's all for you and I to grow as Christians and as Individuals. So my very first question is ...
If you could take 1 minute to tell me what is the single biggest challenge that you’re struggling with in bible study right now a) it would mean the world to me and b) most importantly I’ll be able to use that information to gear upcoming content towards topics you specifically need”
In summary :), we believe:
I’m sure you are wondering who I am and what this “young” lady knows about bible study and Christianity in general.
First let me say that looks are deceiving. I’m not as young as you may think!
I’m Joan Maynard. The genius behind the scene. lol
I am presently married to one of the world’s most supportive husbands, Auckland Maynard, a Deacon in our assembly.
I call myself a ‘Creatively Driven Christian’ because I am a writer, graphics designer, singer, song writer, poet, motivational speaker, presenter, devotional leader, teacher and preacher of the word of God, who is teaching herself how to play piano and would love to play the drums one day!
Wow, that was a mouthful.
It all began when I was 14 ½ years old. 1 year after salvation, I preached my first message. It’s hard to believe that that was almost 20 years ago!
As the years progressed I have witnessed God use my vessel to open the eyes of his people and bring clearer understanding by his Word. I boast not because it is all to the glory of God.
Me Preaching At A Youth Crusade
Me Teaching Bible Study
My struggle was real!
When I accepted Christ, I felt like I had found the answer to all of my emptiness, my loneliness, and abandonment issues. So naturally, I craved more.
I was so hungry for God, but I just did not know how to reach him. I would ask questions and I would receive answers like
But no one gave me the guidelines on how to do it correctly. No one taught me ‘how to pray’. Or even told me what prayer was.
I felt stuck, frustrated and worried that eventually I would lose my desire to serve God all together and ashamed that I was even in this situation.
And he helped me.
I firmly believe that my gift is not for myself.
Jesus Christ helped me and also gave me the gift of teaching: to break down information in bite size portions.
He helped me, so that I can help you!
And that’s exactly what this site is about!
Don’t worry, help is just a page away.
So hold on to your horses …
Don’t change that channel …
We are in for an exciting ride.
