Gwen Smith

Gwen Smith is a gifted worship leader, songwriter, speaker, and author. With a passion to see others experience a deeper relationship with God, this self-professed “girl’s girl” travels the country ministering to women. Through her powerful testimony, disarming humor, Scripture teaching, and Christ-centered music, Gwen invites each individual to experience how the unconditional love of Jesus can change her life. Past mistakes and wounds can lead women to experience feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness. They may even feel that past failures disqualify them from service in the kingdom of God. Smith believes nothing could be further from the truth. She encourages women to stand back and watch the wonder of grace and healing at work in their lives, as she leads them to submit to a God who is willing to eternally forgive and forget and to transform their brokenness into His beauty.

Gwen is the cofounder and worship leader of Girlfriends in God, a conference and devotional ministry, and is a contributing writer for the Girlfriends in God daily e-devotions that are sent via email to 150,000+ women subscribers each weekday. Smith is also the author of the newly published Harvest House book Broken into Beautiful and has been featured on many television and radio shows, some of which are: The Christian Broadcasting Network’s The 700 Club, Good Life Broadcasing Inc’s The Good Life,  LeSEA Broadcasting’s The Harvest Show and Atlanta Live hosted by Babbie Mason.

In June 2008, Gwen was signed as a recording artist with Christian record label Great Worship Songs, owned by the Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing group out of Nashville (a Universal Music Publishing Group Company). She was also signed by Brentwood-Benson as a staff songwriter. Her next CD, Unsearchable, will be released in October of 2008. As an award-winning, published songwriter, Smith has recorded and co-produced four additional CD projects, writes for Sunday Best Music, and is the founder of Audio 31 Music.

In her spare time, you can find Gwen kicking back with her husband of 15 years, Brad, and three fabulously fun kids: Preston, Hunter and Kennedy.  Also often found cheering loudly at her kid's ballgames, she loves playing guitar, relaxing at the piano, and chatting with her girlfriends.

Her interests include bargain shopping, hanging out at local coffee shops enjoying the dark roast, writing new songs, and studying her Bible. Gwen and her family reside in North Carolina, and attend LIFE Fellowship Church.
