DENISE M. SMITH, Founder & CEO

BIOGRAPHY

Denise Smith is a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Worshiper, Intercessor and Lover of God.


She accepted Christ at an early age under the leadership of the late Rev. Robert Delly at Mt. Ollie MBC in Richmond, CA and is currently serving at Acts Full Gospel Church, Oakland, CA under the leadership of Bishop Bob Jackson where she is a part of the Chords of Acts and the Praise Team.


Intercession was birthed in her for her husband in 2007 after a few very hard years of fighting in the natural and not so much in the spirit.  


Intercession (interceding on the behalf of) is not a means of gaining control over your husband, so don’t get your hopes up! In fact, it is quite the opposite. It’s laying down all claim to power in and of yourself, and relying on God’s power to transform you, your husband, your circumstances, and your marriage. This power is not given to wield like a weapon in order to beat back an unruly beast. It’s a gentle tool of restoration appropriated through the prayers of a wife who longs to do right more than be right, and to give life more than get even. It’s a way to invite God’s power into your husband’s life for his greatest blessing, which is ultimately yours, too. 


In 2016, after hearing story after story from her sister wives about not having a safe place to go or person to confide in regarding their marriage, God placed a desire in her to create an environment for wives that is both intimate and safe thus Wives Who War was birthed!
