About Gwen Smith
I believe we're gonna be good friends.
You can expect that we'll grow together with more than just written words: I speak. I sing. I write books, devotions and songs. I worship. I post, pin and tweet. All to encourage and challenge you toward the heart of Jesus in His grace and truth. And I host a really cool podcast called GRACEOLOGIE with fun, faith-focused, grace-filled conversations. Look us up on your podcast app!
And I'm a Bible girl. Every conversation we have will center around the Word because I believe, wholeheartedly, that the Bible is divinely inspired truth.
Love hanging on Instagram! I'm @GwenSmithMusic and find me on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/GwenSmithMusic

Gwen Smith knows how easy it is to dismiss God’s plans with the thoughts, I can’t make a big difference for God because I’m just an ordinary woman with an ordinary life. Yet God created us to join Him in doing amazing work in the world. He created us to live with abundant joy, courage, and influence. But not the joy, courage, and influence of the world. He offers His grace for each failure, His love that shatters hate, His peace that soothes the turmoil, His comfort, guidance, wisdom, rest, power, and significance. Every blessing He has for us is ours for the taking.
I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.
Throughout Scripture, God reveals His complex character by identifying Himself by different names—names that shed light on who He is and how we should relate to Him. In this engaging book, the popular Girlfriends in God devotional team introduces you to forty of those names, each of which invites you to glory in a different aspect of our amazing God.
In each day’s reading you’ll encounter personal, inspiring stories and biblical truths that lead you to a deeper understanding of who God is and what He does on your behalf. You’ll be fed with Scripture that you can apply to your unique circumstances. And most important, as you come to know Him by name, you’ll draw closer to God and learn to trust Him more fully.
Perfect for personal study and for discussing with girlfriends, prayer partners, or small groups, this eight-week daily devotional features:
• a weekly guide to deeper study, reflection, and prayer
• creative ideas to help you apply new insights
• journaling pages
• a pronunciation guide for God’s Hebrew and Greek names
Begin today with Knowing God by Name—and grow closer to the One who knows you by name.
“Knowing God by Name opens our eyes to the many facets of God’s love and mercy, letting us see Him more clearly and know Him more deeply.”
—Liz Curtis Higgs, author of The Girl’s Still Got It
“Just trust me.” Those are the words we often hear in movies just before something bad happens. And yet, we are told to trust God. In a culture where we tend to take control of our own lives, trusting God has become a religious platitude rather than a life-changing attitude. We say it, but do we really mean it? And what does trusting God really look like?
Sharon, Mary, and Gwen—the Girlfriends in God ministry team—have been there. They’ve traveled the tough roads of life to discover the peace and power that comes from grabbing the hand of God and trusting his plan. The life stories they share bring laughter and sometimes tears, but always spiritual growth.
Each of the 12-week sections concludes with a Bible study guide and journal page, inviting you to lock arms with Sharon, Mary, and Gwen and share with other women in a small group setting or to use individually in your own quiet time.
God delights in transforming lives. In Broken Into Beautiful, singer and songwriter Gwen Smith’s first book, she tells the real–life stories of women with shattered dreams, shameful secrets, and damaged souls, and the God who makes them beautiful again. Each chapter features a compelling personal story coupled with relevant biblical teaching and application. Readers will meet women wounded by infidelity, abortion, widowhood, abuse, and other tragic events, only to discover the joy of being restored by a loving heavenly Father.
The book will remind women of all ages of God’s willingness to eternally forgive and forget and of His heart to transform broken lives. Readers will be empowered to believe truth, to remember grace, and to live for God’s greater purposes. Broken into Beautiful is ultimately about a beautiful Savior who became broken for us so that all who are broken can be transformed to reflect His beauty.
STUDY OVERVIEW: If you’re like most women, you have things in your past that you’d like to forget or things in your present stressing you out. The result? Guilt. Pain. Shame. Frustration.
You feel unworthy to move on, to serve God, to be free, and to know peace. While the enemy loves to shackle you with accusations, the Lord loves to extend grace and forgiveness.
God is all about restoration, friend. He wants to bring you beyond your past mistakes and your present challenges to His wholeness, strength and beauty. That’s why GWEN SMITH wrote a Bible Study to coordinate with her book, “Broken Into Beautiful, How God Restores The Wounded Heart.” This interactive, Bible and book study will help you to exchange your fears, failings and frustrations for the hope and healing found in Jesus.
In this study, Gwen will help you:
Stop shame from blocking God’s blessings.
Allow God to heal any wound and break free from control of the past.
Share healing with other hurting women to redeem painful memories.
Rediscover the joy that helps keep life in perspective.
Experience the life changing unconditional love of Jesus and the wonder of grace at work with the BROKEN INTO BEAUTIFUL study!
