Ameerah's Online Christian
Answer to Prayer...
If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. ~Job 36:11
Since I've started this webministry, I've received so many emails
from other Christians asking me, "Ameerah, how did you do it?"
They've thought about starting their own online Christian
business, but they just
don't know where to start. Many want to step out on an
idea they believe God
has given them, but the fear of the unknown stops them in their
So, today, I want to replace that fear with faith. How?
Through sharing my story of how God birthed The Hem Bible
Studies when I had no web knowledge, no money and no clue!
About a year
ago, things weren't looking too good...
to an all out battle for
my health, I had lost yet another job, and my husband and I were once
again down to one income. Though we wanted to start a family
and bring me home from work
, my medical bills
prohibited us from saving any money to even begin heading in that
So, not only were we minus an income, but the medical bills and other
bills were still coming in full force, and our hopes of saving to start
our family were crumbling fast...
Many of us have reached moments in our lives like this, right.
minds begin to wonder, "what
about all of those prosperity scriptures?"
ask ourselves, "We
tithes...why is this happening to us?"
But, my husband and I held on to the belief that God
must somehow have a plan. A way for us to not just survive,
but thrive even in
the midst of what looked like a hopeless situation. So, we
began seeking God in prayer.
Well, one day while watching TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) on the
computer (we didn't have a TV at the time), one of the ministers
mentioned doing a Daniel
to open the door for physical healing.
Instantly, I could feel God speaking to me
about starting this fast right away. I knew nothing at
all about where to start, so I hurried over to the Internet to do some
As I was reading and preparing to submit to God through this Daniel
Fast, I noticed that the site I had found had a small link at the
bottom. The link read, "Powered

Little did I know....While I thought God was only going to use this
fast to heal my body, He had another plan. He had brought me
to this page to start me on a completely different journey.

And The Journey Begins...
Well, if we rewind just a bit...Leading up to this moment, I felt on my
heart that God was going to bless us with extra money through
me doing some work online. So I had been sending out
writing samples to various websites, but with no real
had even tried creating a small blog, but it wasn't getting any traffic
As time passed, I began to wonder, 'Am I really supposed to do
something online? Maybe it was just all in my head and God
wasn't guiding me at all?'
That's about when, through following God's direction to start this
special fast, I happened upon a Christian website with this small link,
"Powered By SITE BUILD
" I thought to myself, 'Well, it's
a Christian site...I guess I can trust the link,' so I clicked it!
With that one click, our lives quickly changed. I spent weeks
over the information and praying for God's direction. It took
me so long because I was
. I thought...
- I don't know how to design a website!
- Will it take up all of my time?
- How will people even find my site?
- How much money is this going to cost?
- Will it really help us financially?
- What if I try it...and FAIL?
And on and on...
know, whenever we go to step out on faith, it's amazing how that little
"voice" just starts jabbering on and on about why we won't

faith grew. I started really believing that God was
