Bridgit Smith, while small in stature, is enormous at heart. She is passionate about seeing women redeemed and relationships restored. Bridgit is authentic and transparent as she leads women to overcome brokenness by immersing their hearts in the agape love of God. Freeing them to love others with the same type of love.
Those who know Bridgit best refer to her as real and down to earth. With heartfelt truth, she shares God’s amazing grace and undeniable love for His daughters. Bridgit’s personal life journey includes a broken marriage, shattered body image, and misguided stereotyping of others. Years ago, God began to chip away at those stumbling blocks. During what Bridgit refers to as her “second journey,” God changed and rearranged her. He restored her marriage and used difficult and heart wrenching situations to remove her false pretenses, judgmental attitudes, and crippling intimidation. Ending the journey at a place of sincere honesty and freedom allows Bridgit to be the woman God designed her to be. And who is that? She is a woman of grace who is still flawed yet seeks God’s face and seeks to love others with God’s agape love.
Bridgit can be outspoken, spontaneous, and random. Still a cheerleader at heart, she loves people and delights in rooting for those who are pursuing their dreams, striving for better lives, and growing in their relationships with Jesus. While her age and grown children discourage her from attempting a cheerleading flip, Bridgit is known to occasionally holler out a “Whoot! Whoot!”
Coming from a legacy of faith, Bridgit has spent much of her adult life serving in her church. She has experience in nursery, youth ministry, and in Women’s Ministry as director. While her children were in school and even now, she is a prayer warrior, and she has participated with her hometown’s Moms in Touch chapter. She and her husband Jim were involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and have led couple’s Bible studies as well as mentor husbands and wives during their times of brokenness.
Bridgit is the proud thirty-five-year bride to Jim. Her record-breaking cheerleading days were developed and honed while raising her family. Whether sitting on wooden bleachers, helping with homework or sharing tears over the loss of a friendship, she has always been her children’s biggest fan. She is “Mom” to five adult children, and she enjoys learning what it means to be called mother-in-law as she is simultaneously honored to be named Mimi by her beloved nine grandchildren.
