What Others Are Saying

“After spending any time with Gwen, whether on the phone, through email and then of course in person, you feel as if you have been with a long time friend. Gwen has a unique way of making one feel as if they are the only one Gwen wants to be with at that moment. She’s a great Bible teacher, engaging conversationalist, funny story teller, honest and open about who she is as a wife, mom, sister, friend and believer in Christ. With a warmth and vulnerability Gwen also shares her gift of worship with an audience. There is nothing that distracts you when she just sings her heart to Christ.”

“Gwen blessed us with not only her teaching, but her gift of drawing others into worship of the Lord with her through her music. She was abundantly generous with her time, praying and talking with women throughout the weekend. Everyone appreciated her unique and engaging way of presenting God’s word in a way that was biblically sound and completely applicable to everyday life situations. She speaks with humor, warmth, and passion. We would highly recommend her as a speaker/ worship artist.”

“Gwen Smith is polished, professional and personal. Her story is compelling and her skills at presenting her message draws the audience in so hearts are always moved and changed. I know her on a personal basis and her integrity is top notch. Gwen challenges, nurtures, entertains with her warm wit and wonderful worship. She impacts an audience with both her incredible musical talent and straightforward Biblical and personal message of hope and healing. I believe Gwen is a leader of her generation, but her ministry is able to span from teen girls all the way to their grandmothers and all the mothers and single women in between. I heartily recommend Gwen.”

“Gwen soundly presents Biblical concepts of grace, strength, trust and peace in a variety of ways—Biblical illustrations, personal experiences and through her music and songs. She connects with women of all ages through her speaking sessions as well as through her praise and worship. Gwen’s effervescent personality comes through during her speaking sessions and through her singing, playing guitar and playing piano. Gwen is a very talented woman with a passion for the Lord. She uses her God-given gifts of speaking, singing and song writing to bring women to the foot of the cross and to the face of Jesus. You will be blessed to have Gwen as your speaker AND worship leader!”

“If talent alone were the measure, I would be a Gwen Smith fan, because God has truly blessed her with some amazing gifts.

If commercial success was based only on that raw ability to connect with a room full of the strangers, I believe Gwen would be a household name, because she was born to communicate. There is something in her smile that causes you to believe and something in her heart that compels you to want to know more.

That ‘something more’ is the passion that burns to make eternal differences in the lives of those she encounters. Count me on that list.”

“Oh, how I love my friend, Gwen Smith! Since meeting her several years ago, Gwen has become a dear girlfriend and a true ministry partner in every sense of the word. We have prayed together, cried together, laughed together and shared in some heart tugging moments, which I will never forget. Over time, I have had the privilege, not only to spend time with Gwen, but also to see her heart. It is beautiful …tender …sensitive …and completely in love with her God.

Gwen is a real woman and a girl’s girl, all at the same time. Her life experiences have given her such rich insight and wisdom, beyond her years. She loves life and loves to laugh, but she also loves to dig deep into the transforming truths of God’s Word and how it relates to women. God has given Gwen a message to share; both through spoken word and song, yet Gwen’s musical talents go beyond just what you see and hear. Her God-given ability to lead people in praise to the Father is both unique and inspiring. Rarely have I seen someone with such a Spirit-led connection with those they are leading …but Gwen has it. Without a doubt, God’s grace shines on the face of Gwen Smith and those of us who are blessed to know her!”

“When Gwen Smith leads worship, I feel as though she takes me straight to the throne room of God. She has an amazing ability to take a room full of women and unite their hearts in an unforgettable worship experience.

Whether the group is seasoned saints who grew up singing old hymns of the faith or new believers and seekers joining voices in contemporary melodies, Gwen melts the hearts of women across generational, denominational and racial boundaries for a unified worship experience that glorifies God.”

“Gwen Smith is a portrait of the Fruits of the Spirit in the Bible, With love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, Gwen exemplifies a godly woman both on and off the platform. She ushered our women into the presence of the Lord as she shared her own walk with Christ. Truly, Gwen led us in worship from a heart that is joyfully devoted to her first love – Jesus.

“What do I think of when I think of Gwen Smith? I think of beauty and excellence and joy. I think of sincerity. I think of genuine worship. I think of God! Gwen is all about God – not self. Each time I have worshiped with Gwen, she has always set my heart and mind on things above – on Christ – because her life is hidden with Christ in God. Gwen‘s beautiful voice and heart-felt lyrics are reason enough to love her. But, more than that, I love Gwen Smith because she loves God. You will too.”
