Mandy Fender was born in the small city of New Braunfels, Texas, in 1985. Growing up, she never expected for the Lord to take her where He has. She rededicated her life to Christ and became serious about picking up her cross and following Him in 2002. In 2003 she married Brandon Fender and has two precious children, Tyler and Jadyn Fender. Her first ministry is to serve God on the home-front and lead by example.
She stepped into youth ministry alongside her husband in 2004. She now serves as Livingway Church’s women’s pastor in the ministry ‘EmpowHER’. She has a passion to reach women where they are and point them to Christ in every situation. Her heart is to encourage and inspire everyone she meets, allowing the love of Christ to shine through her.
Mandy also loves to write and has published three non-fiction books and two fiction books with many more on the horizon. “Beautifully Broken” and “Pretty Little Truths” have both reached the Top 100 in Christian Living on Amazon. Her fiction series, “Defier”, has won two awards: The Redemptive Fiction Award of Excellence by Radiqx Press and the Readers’ Favorite Five Star Seal. All of her works are written with Christ in mind and she hopes to glorify God with her written words.
Mandy is a gifted communicator anointed by God to paint a beautiful picture of His love through words whether spoken or written. She has an amazing ability to draw both the hearer and the reader closer to God. Her love for Christ causes others to want to live and move in Him! A precious gift indeed!
