we met at the belmont university cafeteria our freshmen year of college when our moms introduced us because we happened to share the same name (mackenzie). from the early days, we bonded over more than our namesake—we both had a deep love for Jesus and a zeal for community. over the years we’ve started a ministry together, written books together, and created ftg as a way to combine those two passions. we believe that following Jesus is the most wildly exciting ride of your life, taking yourself too seriously is overrated, and faith is best done in community!
All of our content is inspired by the Word of God. We believe in having an active & alive relationship with Scripture in our everyday lives. All of our resources and content reflect that heartbeat and come from Jesus-centered-truth rooted in Scripture.
This isn’t your Mom’s boring Bible study. (Sorry mom!) We strive to create content that meets you right where you’re at in life. While we don’t shy away from the hard stuff, we also don’t shy away from almost peeing our pants on the daily from laughing so hard. After all, following Jesus is fun and full of joy!
We’re not afraid to say it like it is and to bring you the HARD truth that sometimes you won’t want to hear. We believe wholeheartedly that while conviction, sacrifice and pruning isn’t always easy, it’s always worth it in the end when you start to look more and more like Jesus.
Hiiiii we’re Mac and Kenz the voices behind all things For The Girl...kinda creepy right?!? Hahaha! We are best friends, kingdom dreamers, and probably a lot like you!!
Mac is an ex-country singer from a small town in North Carolina. You probably have the wrong impression of her already because she dresses more like Beyonce and you’ll probably never catch her with a guitar in hand. On the real tho, she’s an incredible speaker and leader. She will fire truth at you even when you ain't ready to hear it!! She’s confident, strong willed (8 on the enneagram), and loyal!! Just picture a golden retriever, pit bull mutt and you got Mac!!
Kenz is everybody's best friend, ultimate hype girl, and prayer warrior. She has perfected the backhanded compliment and always has 3 XL water bottles within arms length. If you ever meet her, be sure to ask her to show you her speed walk (it’s very impressive). Even though she’s not a touchy feely hugger, she always makes sure that everyone in the room feels included and seen. Don’t be surprised by her savvy business skills and her ability to bring the house down with a fire prayer. She’s a textbook 7 on the enneagram and is sure to bring a good time no matter where she goes!
