Carmen A. Smith is the founder of No Suga Coated Word Ministry dedicated to teaching Christian single women how to live a God-fearing life of purpose regardless of relationship status. She is answering the call on her life to share God’s love and direction of a strong kingdom builder. Carmen teaches women to allow God to open their hearts and minds to His way of living which heals brokenness and brings joy, peace and fulfillment.

She is an active partner in ministry at Redeemers House of Worship Church (RHOW), Belleville, IL. God has given her a message that stresses the importance of putting God first and allowing Him to complete us, not man or woman.

Carmen currently lives in her native hometown of St. Louis, MO striving to impact lives for Christ. She enjoys teaching bible study, writing, reading, traveling and hanging out with family/friends.  And of course shoe shopping….LOL

Her motto is: “God first…all else follows.”

It’s liberating walking in your God-designed purpose.  Thanks to my Mom and Grandparents for teaching me the Christian way….May they R.I.H.

My Inspiration

Surround yourself with people and ministries that support your spiritual and personal growth in GOD….Whose your FIRE patrol!! My personal inner circle is small but MIGHTY!!  Prayer partners and confidants are necessary in this life.  In 2015, when I gave my life to God, I prayed for strong Christian relationships…I need guidance and He has been faithful to provide those relationships for me.  I pray that I’m a help to someone just as my inner circle is to me.  

I’m grateful for the seeds of creatitivty planted in me: my mother, Delores Jean Smith instilled in me Christian values, love for reading and my appreciation of journaling and writing words of encouragement. My paternal grandmother, CharlesEtta Smith, Uncle Allen, and cousin Barbara wrote poetry.  My new found entrepreneurial spirit can be traced to my paternal grandfather, LC Smith.  God gives good gifts and talents.


Reach Christian single women of all ages and backgrounds by providing biblical principles that will help them live blessed lives of purpose by pursuing God first in all areas of their lives.  

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

No Suga Coated Word Ministry is about providing Christian insight and support to women desiring to live their single life according to God’s plan.  In our single season, we should strive to know God’s purpose for our lives before we become attached to someone.  So, whether you’re dating or not dating or desire to date, seeking God first will never lead you astray.   I’m single, saved, satisfied, celibate and WALKING IN MY GOD DESIGNED PURPOSE….I’m living my single life for Christ and LOVING IT!!!


I speak to Christian single women about seeking God first to uncover their purpose so they can lead a blessed life regardless of relationship status.  My life is my testimony and God has given me a voice to uplift, edify, and encourage His daughters. 

II Timothy 4:3-5
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.  But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.  NKJV

I Corinthians 7:20
Let each one remain in the same calling in which he is called.

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

WITHOUT PURPOSE AND CLEAR VISION which only God can provide, we don’t have true joy and happiness.  As Christian single women, our first assignment and purpose in life is being minsters of reconciliation…witnesses for Jesus.  Learn of God, His ways and plans for you whatever your season of life.  God’s timing is perfect and patience is a virtue.  Embrace where you are and be about the Father’s business in the earth.

I would love to share my testimony with You, Your Singles or Women’s Ministry
