If your faith is so important to you, why isn’t it part of your business?
That was the question I struggled with for a long time.
I’ve been in online business for three years now, but I haven’t been in the same business for more than a year.
See, I had a problem. I was restless. Nothing I did, no service or content I created or launched, felt aligned. My business was trying to be like everyone else’s.
I talked about the same general online business tips. I talked about copywriting tips (this was the business that lasted the longest). But nothing ever felt right – truly, deep-down-to-my-toes right.
It always felt like I was forcing myself into a role I didn’t belong in (square peg into a round hole, anyone?). Working in my business was a drag. Working with clients was ok, but I didn’t have the fiery passion that everyone else in the online business world claimed to have.
Finally, I got to a point where things just weren’t great financially. I was on the edge of a nervous breakdown. I cried every day (sometimes multiple times a day). I didn’t fully enjoy my time with my girls, and my poor husband didn’t know what to do with me.
So I started to pray. And I prayed and prayed and prayed. And I began to read my Bible daily again.
During that time, I received the same message in a variety of ways – through my Bible reading, through my devotionals, and through my prayer. And that message was: God will provide.
After I accepted that message and the peace that came with it, I found that I was more open to God’s words than ever before. And that’s when my most profound insight happened.
I was supposed to work my faith into my business and share my stories with the world. (I had already decided on the story direction, but I was leaving my faith out of it…just like all the other business variations I had tried.)
When I got that message, I was shocked. This was not the way I saw my life going. I never expected to be the person sharing her faith and helping others do the same. But that’s what I’m doing now, and I’ve never had anything feel so right, so freeing, and so profoundly me in my three years of online business.
Faith in Business
My mission is to help Christian entrepreneurs share their own faith and stories in their businesses so they can deepen their faith, become the leaders they’re called to be, and grow their business + profits.
I firmly believe that whether or not your dream clients are Christian, your faith and your stories belong in your business and your content. And you can include them in a profitable way, too.
Wondering how that’s even possible? You’ve got three avenues available to you.

Work with me to refine your stories and share them strategically. I offer a one-on-one Stories That Sell Intensive, which will help you strategically use two or three of your core stories in your business and your content. We’ll also create a 3-month content plan for your business, so you’ll know exactly what to create for the next 3 months.
Ardelia here. I’m a nerd, wife, mom, Christian, and an entrepreneur who has finally found her path after a long, hard struggle. Before this current business as a story strategist, I was a copywriter for online business owners.
I was drawn to copywriting because I thought I loved writing, though it took me a few years to realize that what I mistook for a love of writing was really a love of stories. But now that I’m aware of my lifelong love affair with tales of all kinds, I’m able to blend that with my newfound passion for sharing my faith and helping other entrepreneurs do the same.
I believe that stories are the primary way we connect and bond with others.
I believe our stories are powerful. They can help us grow our businesses, deepen our faith, and step into the women God wants us to be.
I believe God gave us our stories for a reason – to share them and show how amazing and faithful He has been in our lives.
