Modesty is not only the way we dress but the way of life. God has blessed me to work as a fashion publicist. Fashion is a popular aesthetic expression at a certain time and in a certain context, especially in clothing. Walking in this Christian journey, you begin to realize that it is more about what you wear. Christian living deals with relationships with each other and the Most High. The podcast talks about different topics as a young woman in this Christian journey.Frances Armand is the founder of Armand Consulting and loves the Lord with all her heart. Listen in to hear about Christian living.

John 14:15 If you love me, keep my commandments. When we love someone, we genuinely want to make them happy, not hurt them, and care for their best interest. That is the same way when you are in a relationship with God.  My late Pastor, Bishop William Lee Bonner, would always have us read Deuteronomy 28 versus 1-14. His point was to show us the importance of obedience to God and His word.  He made sure to let us know that we would have to go through stages to enjoy the blessings of God.  If we put God first, we would see the fruit of the relationship.  In this episode, I sit down and talk to my client Brandice Daniel, Founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, about the importance of obeying God and how He has blessed her and her business.  Listen to her testimony on how obedience leads her to start a non-profit that received a million-dollar donation. You will be amazed!!
