10 Steps To Walking In Purpose

Hi, my name is Hephzibah Frances, I’m the author of “10 Steps To Walking In Purpose” .

I believe that it will be helpful for you to know a bit of my story…


When I was 10 years old, my parents got divorced.
When I was 13 I encountered pornographic magazines for the first time and started masturbating.
When I was 14 I started calling up numbers from the newspaper and having boyfriends on the phone.
When I was 16 I spent the night with one of my online boyfriends and he slapped me around and threatened me with a belt while telling me to open my legs so he could have sex with me.
When I was 17, again I met another boyfriend and started having sex.
When I was 18 I became pregnant. And at 18 still, I aborted my pregnancy; twice.

At 18, I became tired of life; tired of my boyfriend who was psychologically abusive, but I didn’t know how to leave.
I had no joy.
I thought I was nothing; mess, dirt and good for nothing.
And then I found God.
Or rather, I finally ran into His outstretched hands.


And then I discovered my identity in Him.
I discovered that He called me perfect, beautiful and worthy of His love.
And I also discovered that He had created me for a reason; for a purpose and all I had gone through was all part of bringing His purpose for me to pass.
And finally, my life had meaning.

I had found Him and in so doing I found myself.

It has been 7 years since those dark years of my life.
7 years of throwing myself into God wholly.
7 years of Him blowing my mind away.


He has called me His own; a writer, a Christian blogger, a teacher, a speaker, called to dispense Christ with her words and life.
He has shown me my place in Him and also given me an assignment of raising other men and women of purpose for Him.

See, it doesn’t matter how far gone you think you are.
God can still use you for His purposes one earth; as a matter of fact, He created you to fulfill His purposes and this He planned even before you were born.


“For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels, everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.

-Colossians 1:16-17, MSG


If you feel like you are worth nothing and are nothing, then my book 10 Steps To Walking In Purpose is for you.
If you feel like you know you are created for a reason but don’t know how to find it, then this book is also for you.
If you feel like you know God’s purpose for your life but are you are at a loss on how to walk and start functioning in it, then this book is for you too.





There is an awakening in the hearts of men and women to the fact that we are not just aimless souls drifting through earth.
We were created by God to live in Him, for Him and through Him and this He calls us to do in the sphere He wants us to fill.
This book is part of that awakening and I pray that as you read, you also will be brought to this point where I am right now living and walking in God’s purpose for my life.



This book is also part of a much bigger work of raising youths to walk in God’s purpose for their lives.

AWAKENING YOUTHFUL SEEDS FOR CHRIST INITIATIVE (AYSCNIGERIA) NGO arose out of this book and the works that I Hephzibah Frances do at Secondary School.
I started speaking to secondary school students as a youth corper in Ado-Ekiti in the year 2015. I thought that was the end but after my time as a corper, I was led to register the work as an NGO and
continue the work. Today we have been working for almost 4 years running, reaching schools in different states in Nigeria and in Ghana. Yes, the dream from 2015 to reach students in Ghana has been actualised, twice as at the time of writing this on July 17th 2018.

AYSCNIGERIA is a Faith-based Non-Governmental Organization
that exists to raise teenagers and youths of purpose for Jesus. We do this through seminars, conferences and discussion on purpose at secondary schools, Universities, Churches, Correctional centres and youth gatherings in general.

We are based on three pillars: Purpose, Purity and Growth.
You can sponsor hard copies of 10 STEPS TO WALKING IN PURPOSE and be a volunteer of our work by emailing awakeningyouthfulseeds@gmail.com


You can watch the video clip of me speaking on Purpose below and watch other speaking engagements on PURPOSE on my YouTube channel HERE




I pray that your feet will not falter even as you find and walk in God’s purpose for your life in Jesus name, amen.
