Christian Discipleship for Women
In 2017, my discipleship pathway led me to discovering the truth about identity in Christ. My findings turned into #52Devotionals ebook, the foundation of my Christian discipleship. Download it for free now!
I help women see themselves the way God sees them. I'm an award-winning author and speaker, so book me to share hope at your next event.
Also, I'm a Christian poet, artist, and the host of The Anna Szabo Show podcast. My new book of Christian bedtime stories called "How Princess Lana Developed Faith and Fortitude" is now available on Amazon. Princess Lana fairytales collection is autobiographical and represents my journey from a mail-ordered bride to a child of God.
My passion for ministry comes from experiencing adversity and surviving things like childhood abuse, two suicide attempts, sexual assault, teen pregnancy, miscarriage at 17, alcoholism, sexual addiction, domestic violence, narcissistic abuse, divorce, and homelessness. I had a really tough life, there's no other way to put it. Many times, I didn't want to live at all. Yes, I'm talking about suicide. There was a hole in my heart until I met Jesus. And now I see how God uses all things together for good. He continuously gives me beauty for ashes.
I grew up in Russia and was raised by a family of alcoholics where adultery and violence were a daily norm. Abuse, poverty, rejection, and lack of wise counsel left me traumatized and confused. I didn't know who I was or whose I was. My primary caregiver - my mom - was hateful, violent, and cruel. I never had a father. I was searching for identity, acceptance, and belonging everywhere - in all the wrong places for many years.
That's how I found Jesus: weeping on my knees in the middle of my living room. I remember that night in April of 2014. City lights, soft carpet, and tears rolling down my face. Christ entered into my heart and changed my life forever. He took my pain, anger, and confusion away. And instead, Jesus gave me a burning desire to share the Gospel. I got baptized a few months later in front of 3,000 people at Buckhead Church on October 19th, 2014. My life isn't perfect by any means. Yet, with Jesus, I have a peaceful life filled with joy.
Online Discipleship For Women is a Christian ministry for women focused on the six pillars of joyful living, which were revealed to me by God on the journey I share here. Everything on this website is based on the fundamentals of identity: I believe that understanding who you are in Christ has the power to transform your character, lifestyle, and future. That's what transformed me from a mail-ordered bride to a child of God.
If you accepted Jesus as your lord and savior, you and I are both #TruePrincesses! Welcome, Princess!
p.s: If you're looking for Christian speakers to make your upcoming event unforgettable, invite me to deliver a message of hope.
Matthew 18:20 says this: "For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them."
I was not raised in church. In fact, I struggled with sexual addiction for years, but in 2014, I gave my life to Jesus. I believe that being in God’s Word daily is the key to joy and peace. Christian discipleship is a pursuit of God's truth. Intentional discipleship doesn't dismiss the human condition. My discipleship pathway took me from addiction and suicidal depression straight into God's truth and purpose. Being in the Word while going through severe depression and debilitating suicidal thoughts in 2016 and 2017, I was able to get through adversity by focusing on Jesus and God’s eternal promises.
That’s why I created Online Discipleship For Women. My mission is to alleviate suicide among women globally by sharing hope in Christ. Share this message with a woman who needs to hear it now.
