Drew Blackston: Author, Blogger, Podcaster, & Sparkling Water Enthusiast I have one zealous mission: to see people transformed into the men and women that GOD has called them to be. Through speaking, writing, and podcasting, my passion is to disciple other believers, giving them the tools to be the hands and feet of Jesus. My wife and I founded Anchor Movement with the desire to share our stories to help others move forward in their faith.
On the 9-5, I am a Certified Retirement Counselor and Financial Planner. I've been published in Kiplinger Investment Magazine, featured in Forbes, and appeared on various news programs to discuss financial markets and money habits.
Once at home, I’m the husband to a beautiful wife Valerie and dad to two energetic kids. Living in Florida we take every opportunity to be near the ocean and make castles in the sand. A perfect day includes family time at the beach, fish tacos, my favorite sparkling water, and ending the night watching a movie.
Valerie Blackston: Wife, Mom, Blogger, & Wannabe Chef
I wear many hats, but my favorites are wife and Mom. Currently I’m a SAHM, baking fanatic, and co-founder of Anchor Movement. As a mom of two girls, most of my days revolve around crafts, outdoor fun, and laundry! I love to travel, enjoy the outdoors, and spending time with family. Pre #momlife, I worked for various Fortune 500 companies, then landed in the financial industry where I met my handsome husband and the voice behind our podcasts! Together we adopted 2 adorable dogs- a golden retriever and doxie terrier who think they are human.
Our excitement to see others grow in their faith led us here today. Through this movement, my desire is to use our stories to compel you to step into the person God has called you to be. Soaring beyond circumstances, labels, status, and personal ability, I want to see the man and woman next door become the world changer of tomorrow.
Sharing personal stories are definitely out of my comfort zone, but in order for me to spread hope to this world, I’ve learned there’s power in our testimony. I believe people are looking for vulnerability and authenticity in a “presets” society. Join us as we share our stories from the tops of the mountains, deep in the valley’s and everywhere in between. I look forward to connecting with you and hearing your stories!
Our prayer is that God will use His message to make a lasting impact on the world around us. Not to us, but to His name be all the glory. We have this hope as an Anchor for our soul--hope that pushes towards movement---movement that brings salvation and deliverance. Let's go change the world.
