Lady Vivacious Smith
Elect Lady Vivacious Smith was born on September 21, 1973 in Detroit, MI to
Arnell & Sandra Hardee. She was the second born of three siblings. Vivacious moved to the state of Georgia in 1991 and graduated from Telfair County High School. After graduation, she attended Brewton- Parker College in Mt. Vernon, GA where she majored in English and
minored in Mass Communications (Journalism). Vivacious is the mother of three
children, including two stepchildren. She married Kendrick Smith on October
19, 2003 and they currently reside in Dublin, GA.
A personal testimony from Vivacious lets everyone know that God can take a
mess and turn it into a diamond. Before turning her life over to God in 2002,
Vivacious experienced a life full of depression, violence and hopelessness. She
survived two suicide attempts and lived through many things no child should have to endure; but yet she made it. From the outside you’ll never believe what she went through before she finally
surrendered to the voice of God.
Because of the many trials she faced in her adolescent years, Vivacious has developed a strong passion for young women
(saved and unsaved), that is her ministry. She has a message of survival and
not giving up, but knowing that the songwriter of “Amazing Grace” seemed to have her in mind when writing that
song. As a servant, Vivacious acts as Armour bearer to her husband, being trained
under Pastor Shwanada Jones and unctioned by the Holy Spirit for that role. Vivacious
also enjoys teaching marriage enrichment focusing on teaching saved wives how to operate in the anointing of a virtuous woman.
