Ministry Mission & Vision

Inspiring Christians to explore God’s design, establish godly lives, and exude God’s love.


Our free online resources inspire Christians to explore God’s Word and deepen their understanding of His design.

Romans 12:2


Our exegetical (Bible-centered) teaching empowers Christians to demolish strongholds and establish godly lives.

2 Corinthians 10:4


Through “evangelical discipleship” and Church partnerships, we equip Christians to exude God’s love in their local communities.

John 13:34

A Message from Sarah Koontz

At Living by Design Ministries, we believe God revealed a blueprint for life within the pages of the Bible. In the same way an inventor names his invention, and tells the world why he invented it—our Creator God named us, and told the world why He created us.

Isaiah 43:6-7 says, “Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

We learn from this verse that God has called us His sons and daughters and created us for His glory. As His beloved children, we can rest assured He has a beautiful design for our lives. Let’s explore it together!

Sarah Koontz has a way with words and explanations that I do not need a Masters of Theology to understand. I have done Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer studies, dedicating hours daily to studying. I often missed the meat of the issue because I just wanted to get through it. But Sarah’s Bible studies only take 15-minutes per day and WOW! I never knew 15-minutes could make such a big difference in my life. -Myra

Sarah’s Saturday SOULfood e-mails are a constant in a world of inconsistency. I look for them every week, and when I see her name in my inbox, I smile.  Her writing is relevant to my life as a wife, mom, and girlfriend in Christ.  As a direct result of Sarah’s discipleship (via blog posts, Bible studies, and e-mails), I am spiritually blossoming.  The petals of my life are opening and my spiritual vision is being renewed. -Tiffiney


Sarah’s writing captured my attention a few years ago.  She is so open and authentic, I was immediately drawn to her. She made this idea of being a godly daughter, wife, and mother tangible to me. I love her candidness, and willingness to share her mistakes.  When you spend time reading Sarah’s blog posts, you’ll laugh, cry, ruminate, reflect and get fed with God’s Word. Thank you, sweet Sarah, for being my virtual daughter in Christ. -Chauntelle
