Hey there, my name is Jessica Lindsey. I am the founder of Abideco. I have a passion to see families center their home in the Word of God. I believe the Lord desires us to activate families in intimacy, the knowledge of God, and the call to discipleship in the home. My prayer is this: all families fall in love with the word of God and ultimately abide in Him together. I believe the home is one of the most important avenues in which the Kingdom will multiply and you are a part of that. As you actively disciple your children, you come into partnership with God's heart for the generations.
In 2019 My husband and I accepted the call to move to North Carolina. With several confirmations and radical urgings from the Holy Spirit, we set out on faith and left everything behind. We didn’t realize that the years to come would be some of the hardest and yet most rewarding years we had ever experienced. God ultimately led us to lay down our lives in service to His great cause and we partnered with a ministry and established in Charlotte in 2020. As we grew this ministry and the Lord began to dissect our lives, we began a metamorphous that left us unrecognizable. God has a beautiful way of taking you through hard seasons and bringing you out stronger.
August 2021 would prove to be the start of one of the most challenging seasons of our life. Our family became sick with Covid and everyone recovered within a few weeks, I however was affected in a more serious way. After a few days I started experiencing extreme light and sound sensitivities. The migraine attacks began shortly after that and left me in a quiet dark room, just trying to survive the attacks that lasted throughout the day, without explanation. This lasted 3 months and my only source of comfort was the brief hour or 2 the migraine attacks ended (medicine no matter how strong, would not make it better) and my time in the bath. It was in these dark days that the Holy Spirit met me. He would guide me through each day, even when I couldn’t think for myself. When I would lose hope, he would minister to me, when I felt I couldn’t endure any longer, he would strengthen me. I felt His tangible love and counsel more in this season than at any other time in my life. This was when the Lord birthed Abideco in my heart. During one of my episodes, I had a vision, in this vision I saw me teaching children at a picnic table. As I looked up, I saw children running around, laughing and in pure joy. The vision ended and I heard the voice of the Lord say, “What does it look like to raise an uncompromised generation?” I always have carried a burden for discipleship in my heart for my own children, but my heart began to expand to the body of Christ. Over the next year the Lord led me to complete a school of ministry which only aided in God’s plan to stir my heart for discipleship. I began to burn for families, consecration, and biblical discipleship founded on the word of God.
In March 2022, I began praying into this. Originally, I felt a stirring to fill the home with scripture, and so I began designing scripture art. In my morning time with the Lord, he led me to my journal entries from 2021. The first entry was a detailed outline of a movement called ABIDECO that centered the home on scripture. I knew this was a confirmation and began building. What I didn’t expect was that God had other plans. He had given me a piece, but not the whole. He started to expand my understanding and give me ideas on resources to center the home on scripture and encourage discipleship. I began to walk in obedience and faith, the pieces began to come together. We officially launched summer of 2022 and will be launching our first resource, the Bible Adventure Journal, Fall of 2022. We could never have anticipated the journey the Lord designed for us, but we are ever so honored to be a part of His story and heart for the generations.
