Shy and quiet as a child, Rhianna Sanford is now fearless and bold concerning God and His Kingdom. During her adolescent years, she realized God’s powerful grace and empowerment and embraced His call on her life to lead, teach and train people in various areas of ministry. Her ultimte passion, as a formally trained musician, is leading individuals into intimate encounters with God through her musical talents. She also has a burning desire to serve young people and see them freed from the deceptive ideas of the world and modern culture. Rhianna has a visual prophetic gift (God often speaks to Rhianna in picture messages and dreams) and enjoys uplifting, encouraging and demonstrating His love to others.
Rhianna and her husband Alessandro are uniquely gifted as pioneers and initiators. They are both business owners and founded and pastored Living Waters Family Church in Courtland, Kansas. As a mother of three, Rhianna has learned the vital importance of balance and prioritizing, stemming from a message that is at the root of a life-long theme from Matthew 6:33; to passionately pursue God’s ways first and above all, expecting the goodness and glory of God to take care of everything else.

With examples in our pop culture like Beyonce and Christina Aguilera, there's a lot of work to be done in teaching our girls the definition of purity from God's perspective.
