Episode 114: Using Our Gifts for God’s Glory

“They really just handed me to God & allowed me to be whoever He desired me to be – that was the most freeing thing for me as a child.” This quote by our guest, Alena Pitts, is one of the many she shares in this episode about using our God-given gifts for His kingdom purposes. Alena is a young actress, author & vocalist who walks us through her journey in the spotlight and talks freely about identity and purpose in Christ.

Ready to hear how you can encourage the kids in your life to use their gifts for God’s glory? Let’s go!

ALENA PITTS is an actress, author and vocalist. The Kendrick Brothers’ movie, War Room, marked Alena’s professional acting debut, with Alena being cast in the major supporting role as Danielle Jordan. Shortly after, Alena started on a new journey and co-authored a three-book, fictional series aptly titled, Lena In The Spotlight.

She tragically and unexpectedly lost her mother, Wynter, in 2018. Alena has found that sharing her story in song and writing has brought her the most healing. Alena remains very grounded and values her relationship with Jesus Christ as her highest priority.
