blogger, graphic designer,
fellow daughter of the King.
My name is Alexis Goncalves-Jenken and I'm the writer and designer behind the Daughter of the King devotional blog! I'm 30 years old, a recently married wife and most importantly, a proud believer and follower of Jesus Christ, which makes me a daughter of the King! I have a bachelor's degree in journalism and have taught in a specialized college program where I currently support students with mental health and addiction challenges in Toronto, Canada.
I came to the Lord when I was just five years old at an altar call during an Easter passion play. I was brought up in a Christian household and regularly attended my local Pentecostal church for most of my life. The Christian walk was something I thought I knew and practiced, something I even took pride in... until recently. It took a global pandemic to wake me up from my stagnant, self-serving and spiritually dull life.
One day, God lovingly revealed to me that I needed to start living for Him. He wanted more of me than the part I gave him on Sundays He wanted to be put front and center in my life. Then He called me to a higher calling - to start an online devotional blog for women. Shortly after, Daughter of the King was born!
