Giving by Design
Giving by Design is the mission arm of Living by Design Ministries. Our goal is to invest 10% of the donations we receive from our Discipleship Team to Bible literacy projects around the world. Oftentimes, partnering with other organizations allows us to strategically apply our limited funds to the areas where they’re needed the most. We research these organizations and follow-up to make sure our project goals are being reached. If you would like to financially support this outreach of our non-profit ministry, we invite you to join our Discipleship Team by setting up a monthly recurring gift today.
In 2021, we are partnering with World Vision to provide access to Scripture for families earnestly seeking to grow in their faith. The International Bible Fund provides Bibles to World Vision communities based on specific needs expressed for each country.
Owning a Bible is something that many American Christians take for granted. Christian homes often have more than one – Bibles tailored for children or teens and different translations. But in communities where World Vision works, Bibles are often rare.
A Bible For Every Believer
In 2020, we partnered with Voice of the Martyrs to bring the light of God’s Word to hostile areas and restricted nations around the globe. Brave men and women from VOM are risking arrest, imprisonment, beatings and even death to get God’s Word into the hands of those who otherwise might never receive it.
Establishing Godly Lives at
The Arise Community School is located in an impoverished village, Sanya Juu, in the outskirts of Moshi, Tanzania. Children between the ages of 3 and 14 can attend the school which provides pre-primary and primary education. One of the fundamental principles of the school is that every child in the community should have the opportunity of an education irrespective of their family circumstances, ability to pay, or their religion, faith, tribe or ethnicity. We began our partnership with Arise school in July 2018 and believe that the school teachers and administrators are living out the truth of James 1:27.

Tanzania Bible Distribution Project
In 2019, we partnered with Open Doors USA to provide persecuted Christians with much-needed Bibles—along with the training to read Scripture, preach from it and tell others about Jesus!
There is an extraordinary need to reach persecuted Christians with Bibles and discipleship resources. We must equip our hurting brothers and sisters with God’s Word to give them courage and strength when they need them the most.
God bless you for your work with this ministry. I have many Muslim children in my school. I try to tell them the good news about Jesus. The kids always ask for your videos and Bible studies, they love you very much. Thank you for providing Bibles to share with our students. We are very blessed for all you do to help us grow spiritually!

Bibles for Liberia
In November 2019, we partnered with Bridges of Hope’s South Dakota-based education team to provide eighteen study Bibles for the teaching staff at Hope International Christian Academy in Bensonville, Liberia, West Africa.
The Bibles are going to be key to transforming the lives of the teachers spiritually, intellectually, and educationally. They will help the teachers to further their own understanding of Scripture and be used to teach the students during the school day.
“I am so grateful for the precious gift which is the Holy Bible that you sent to us at HOPE. This is a gift that surpasses all gifts that anyone could give. I appreciate this valuable gift and pray that the Holy Spirit be with us as we go through His words. May God Almighty richly bless you in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
-Wesley, a teacher at HOPE
