Meet the Team: Introduction to the ICFTS Crew of Creatives

“I came for the soup…,”  a platform designed to encourage creatives to dream or dream again, in Christ-centered faith, helping them to discover their creativity, vision, and the courage it takes to make them thrive.

ICFTS’s mission is to encourage and guide others to rediscover and take hold of their dreams and unique creative voice, in order to step out in faith and give life to their vision. That can be faith in how to raise a more Godly and united family, how to be more financially free, how to gain the courage to start your own business.

Whatever it is you have a dream to achieve, ICFTS is here to come alongside you and walk you from imaginative moment to manifestation.

With any vision, there is a team, a community, a family, that plant the seeds and bring in the harvest together. It is our pleasure to meet you!


I’m Candice Coates

Candice small headshotI am the Founder of “I came for the soup…” I am a Fiction and Non-Fiction Author, who loves to share my faith through my art and writing. I am blessed to teach others the Word and speak life into their vision. I am in love with Ireland, languages, tea, and just about anything with pistachios. When not writing I am pursuing my creative voice through visual art, or new designs for my handmade polymer clay jewelry line, Shizen Brook.

I’m Bri Lassiter

Bri Small headshotI‘m married to my dearest friend of 8 years and mom to an energetic 6-year-old. My greatest joys come from traveling with my little family, cooking for appreciative recipients, learning herbalism and natural medicine, and every experience I get to have in prayer ministry. I’m an avid tea and book lover and can’t get enough of either. I love Jesus and the daily adventure that comes from walking in friendship with him as he arranges and rearranges my story.

I’m Regina Hernandez 

Reginas small headshotI am a woman on an adventurous journey of fully stepping into the identity Christ has spoken over me. I am wife to a most amazing man, and we have two children: a joyous two-year-old little boy and a sweet six-year-old daughter on the autism spectrum. Together, we are destined for greatness, and once our testimony is fulfilled, the power of Christ will be undeniable to anyone who hears it. The Holy Spirit has blessed me with the most amazing gifts of creativity, communication, and prophecy. My desire in life is to combine these gifts in hopes of encouraging others to embrace their God-given identity, find true freedom, and fully experience the love of Christ in their life.


There is such a great power to be shared when two or more stand in agreement before the Lord, and we three are standing with you as you step out in faith to be all that Christ Jesus has called and created you to be and to take hold of all that He has for you! (MATTHEW 18:18-20)

As we stand together and through the power of Christ’s Spirit, build this ministry and platform stay connected with us by following us!

It is such a pleasure to meet you and to see you flourish in your faith and creativity!

In Him Always!
