Our culture is constantly bombarding us with lies and pressure to be more, do more, and hustle for our worth. We are here to be that voice of truth that comes alongside you on your journey, reminding you that you are not alone. You are loved just as you are. The world needs you as God made you to be, not as what our culture tells you to be in order to be worthy.

Through our inspiring conversations, you will be empowered to have agency over your life and seek God as you pursue spiritual, mental, and physical wellness. We have seen that self-esteem often falls short on its own. However, believing you are loved and enough in Christ has the power to set you free.

Consider us your friends, here to remind you of your God-given worth and that no matter what you are going through, Jesus is with you and loves you more than you can imagine.

No matter what your story or current struggles, healing and transformation is possible for you.

Step confidently in the direction of wholeness, healing, and love as you quiet the voices of the world and tune it to the wisdom of the God who knows you intimately and loves you perfectly.
God made you intentionally for a unique purpose and His eternal plan for you is better than you could ever hope.

We believe when a girl or a woman knows her true value it changes everything.

We are here to empower you to become the woman God created you to be through a life-changing relationship with Christ. The conversations we share will give you hope that you can overcome challenges, whether it be an eating disorder, depression or anxiety, and make peace with your body, create fulfilling relationships and live a passionate life of purpose and significance.

We want to help you create a life with God you can’t wait to wake up to each morning. You are a woman of influence with the ability to make a lasting impact on the lives of the people God has put around you. You have been lovingly and wonderfully made and made for this time and place in history.

Hear from women like Sadie Robertson Huff, Bethany Hamilton, Morgan Harper Nichols, Ellie Holcomb, Jamie Grace, Sheila Walsh, Joni Eareckson Tada and so many more as they inspire you to live with confidence, faith and courage.

This podcast is for girls and women and is produced by Wonderfully Made®, a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to helping young women and the women who love them know their value and live spiritually, mentally and emotionally healthy lives.

I LOVE that the foundation of everything talked about by Allie and Christie is our identity in Christ. Each episode addresses real situations and challenges in a way that points me back to Jesus and what’s possible with Him.

Young women CAN live whole and free

I love how Allie and Christie help women like me who have a heart to serve young women, whether that be in their home, neighborhood or church. It’s so inspiring to find an organization devoted to serving young women to let them know how to live whole and free. I can’t wait to read Allie’s new book by the same name, Wonderfully Made.
