Hi… my name is Alex Seeley. If there was one word to best describe me, it would be “passionate”. I am passionate about my life, my husband and my children. I love my friends, fashion, interior design, and all things beautiful, but most of all I am passionate about Jesus… I have been a pastor for 20 years, and love to share Jesus with people who don’t know him. My mission in life is to help people discover who they are in Christ, and the freedom that is found in Him through salvation.
My husband and I moved from Melbourne (Australia) to Franklin TN (USA) in April 2012 to follow the call of God. We had no idea what that would be, but we were willing to step out in faith and see what God would do. Within a few months, we began to open our home to people who were hungry for an encounter with the presence of God, and before long our basement was full of people every Tuesday night. By February 2014, there were over a hundred people meeting each week and our church The Belonging Co was birthed.
We know God is doing something amazing here in Nashville and we are glad to be a part of it. Our prayer is to see the people of our city, and our nation, changed by the love and presence of Jesus. My favorite scripture is found in 1 Corinthians…
“No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit”
1 Corinthians 2:9
God has amazing things prepared for each one of us, so let’s keep our hearts tuned in to what the Spirit of God is saying so that His plans will be made known on the earth in our generation!
What if the path to a life of abundance and blessing isn't what we expected? What if the way forward begins with going backward?
We all want the blessed life, but we often search for it in the wrong place. In The Opposite Life, pastor and author Alex Seeley explores twenty surprising principles that flip our thinking so that we can live an abundant life in the upside-down kingdom of God.
Through story and fresh biblical insight, Alex unfolds compelling truths from the Scripture as she contrasts vital themes including:
death vs. life
love vs. hate
fear vs. faith
worry vs. worship, and more
Along the way, she offers encouraging and simple challenges to help us align our lives with God's subversive plan. As we learn to exchange our default instincts for the surprising teachings of Jesus—our pioneer of the unlikely—we discover a life of transformational power, abundance, and more blessing than we ever thought possible.
