Yay Sisters: Mosie Theodore of Good Grace Co. in New Jersey, USA
Looking for a Holy Spirit-filled Christian who's not afraid to testify or encourage / challenge others to testify far and wide — who lives and breathes Revelation 12:11?
Meet Mosie Theodore of Good Grace Co. (GCC) out of New Jersey!
Mosie and I met on Instagram and it's been a true blessing to see glimpses of her testimony through GCC but also through our conversations. She's real and honest, through all the things that happen in life. Actually, just before I started writing this, I saw a Beth Moore quote that said:
I pray we always have the courage to testify as God leads, whether that's to one person or a million, to not be afraid of man's reaction, and to always make room to listen to and have compassion for the testimonies of those who God brings into our lives. None of us are perfect. How beautiful it is to see those who wholeheartedly welcome God's love and light to fill all the brokenness, scars, fresh wounds, knowing that Jesus paid the price for our lives and forever we are HIS.
If it's not clear already, I think Mosie is such a person — a beautiful daughter of God. Read on! :)
𝗪𝐞𝐥𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞! 𝐏𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐮𝐬 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐝 GCC?
Hello, I’m Mosie Marie Theodore. I’m 27. I live in New Jersey but was born in Haiti. I’m a lady servant of God—trying to live life genuine, love and serve others as best as I can. I also run 𝘎𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘨𝘢𝘤𝘦.𝘤𝘰 (GCC), a Christian community platform based on Revelation 12:11.
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Revelation 12:11)
When I first started GCC, I felt out of my depth and had no idea how this God-vision would come to impact my life and others. All I knew is after reading a book about persecuted Christians testimonies, God embedded a passionate fire to start a space for believers:
a safe storehouse for personal testimonies/vulnerabilities of lives transformed, reformed, tested and won underneath the covenant of GRACE
I wanted this space to be more than a search of encouragement, inspiration or be a mood lift but a place we all can have conversations guided by the Holy Spirit.
I desired this to be more than creative expression but to build confidence! And where inseparable companions are birthed, because we’re one body working towards looking like and living a life that pleases Jesus each and every day. I wanted this space to be more than speckles. I wanted this to make a big splash around the world.
The start of GGC was not for vain pursuits. But to continually give testament of the goodness of a God who is so gracious and provides for His righteousness. I wanted to cultivate this platform with as much light and salt as I can; yet remaining transparent.
Therefore the community will continue to share bold, real-life stories of believers overcoming by the Word of their 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓𝐈𝐌𝐎𝐍𝐈𝐄𝐒. And encourage one another in love and the truth of The Sword.
My prayer is for anyone who stumbles by, that they find these stories inspiring, encouraging, empowering but most importantly realize that the Good Shepherd is alive, active and guiding His people here on earth.

Yes, growing up I was a ball of insecurities. I always felt different! It was as if I was the black sheep of my family and friend group. So, I dreamed to be someone less different. And every time my mom would say to me, “You should be happy to be you.” Nope, I didn’t want to hear it. Thus most of my youth, I spend a lot of time hating and being stuck in confusion about myself.
It wasn't until I became serious in my pursuit with Christ, when I started to truly accept me. This exchange was beautiful, because I started to view myself how God sees me. The apex of His eye! He taught me to embrace my essence, imperfections, and weaknesses. This was not easy, but He kept transforming & will until He completes it.

The enemy tried to deny a great personal freedom and knowledge on how crucial it is to love & accept how my Clay Master formed me. It’s not the clay that molds the Master, but the Master. I was formed intricately in my moms womb, and God does not make any mistakes, so I don’t need any changing. I am worthy and find great joy in being peculiar and chosen. I’m thankful that GOD worked overtime to teach me that.

One way, through GGC the Lord has blessed me to witness the beautiful wonders of how, He uses us to be His hands and feet! Changing the world and make an impacting for His glory and fame!
The second way is He showed me a certain attitude that rots the bone—Jealousy. I haven’t always been approachable, friendly, authentic, loving, and supportive in my past. Instead, I've been bratty, cold, hypocritical, hateful, and envious towards my “friends.” Being gracious in grace, and filled with compassionate—He knew I needed guidance in becoming all He wanted me to be. He placed genuine kingdom builders alongside my lane through GGC. I felt undeserving in the capacity He blessed me with Godly friends online.
These friends (along with off-line) encourage and sharpen me in being more authentic, loving, and supportive. Now, I’m genuine in my approach. I'm all about supporting and collaborating with other women. I definitely know part of my God-given design is to empower & uplift other women to not only find find joy in being God created them to be. But to be bold and daring about it also.

My simple encouragement would be is that YOU bring something unique to the table. No need to compare or compete. God has already provided you room. So find out who you are in Christ, and when you do…walk passionately and be confident in that. It’s the best thing you could do.
