HOW IT BEGAN...
She is Set Apart was started by Tierraney Richardson. In April 2014, she read the book Spoken For where Alyssa Bethke shares a story about her singleness that somewhat mirrored hers. This book helped her see who and whose she was and that she’s already been chosen, loved, valued, pursued, and called by Jesus Christ. As she dove deeper into scripture she was able to replace lies with the truth of the word. She learned that nothing is wrong with her that was simply a lie from the enemy. In fact, she saw her lifelong singleness as protection from Christ. God protected her by keeping her from meaningless relationships that would serve as nothing but a distraction. God chose to set her apart. As her view of her singleness began to shift from a worldly perspective to a biblical perspective she noticed that many other singles were still stuck viewing their singleness from a worldly perspective. This is when She is Set Apart was started.
It began with the idea of a conference and soon expanded into a blog and YouTube channel. All with the purpose of encouraging single women to live with an eternity focused mind. Not a mind that is constantly distracted by the lies the enemy feeds them about their singleness or about the constant longing for a man to finally choose them. She wanted to see single women shift their perspective of singleness from a worldly perspective to a Godly perspective. Knowing that contrary to what the world says God says that as a single they are chosen, loved, valued, pursued, and called. She wanted to see single women not wasting their single season but using every gift and talent God has given them to maximize their singleness for God’s glory all with the goal of making more disciples.
