Speaker and counselor dedicated to helping you see from a heart perspective: You are beloved!
Someone once said I was a caged bird who just needed to be set free, fly and find my voice! I have found my voice and love to share the heartfelt experiences of my life struggles and how God lovingly brought me through the tough times. I have learned that God uses us in spite of our weakness, because He delights in doing the impossible out of our broken lives.
I finished my education late in the season of my life. Ministering to my own healing, I completed my master’s degree in Pastoral Christian counseling in 2021. I began offering grief support to those who are grieving because of the loss I have experienced in my own life. I am a pastor’s wife, have one son, one very handsome grandson, and stepchildren and step grandchildren.
I love ministry in the church, reading (esp. daily devotions with my husband), studying God’s Word, walking, looking at real estate, traveling, sight-seeing and meeting new people. Life is full when we believe that God will meet our every need, He is just waiting for us to believe.
This ministry exists to honor Jesus Christ and to help those who are hurting or broken to experience the healing power of Jesus Christ through the redemptive power of the Holy Spirit. My mission is to share my heartfelt experiences and encourage others to experience His redemptive love as well.
I offer two presentations on the topics below. I would be happy to prepare the presentation in ways that connect with you and the vision you see for your up-and-coming event. Contact me to learn more!
As a young girl growing up in poverty, I felt anything but “beloved” and anything but beautiful. The tenth child of a dozen children, I was shy and introverted and struggled to find my voice. Through the experiences of hardship, God was loving me through the tough times and encouraging my faith and strength in finding my true identity. When I found my identity in the one who created me, it changed my perspective, and I began to see myself as God sees me: Beloved!
You are Seen
You are Summoned
You are Secure
You are Significant
I know the pain of a broken heart and have experienced abuse and a failed marriage. I have heard the devastating news of a life-threatening illness of someone I loved. Overcome by another heart wrenching experience, I looked to God for healing and hope. God directed my path and nurtured my heart back to wellness with His redemptive love and reality that God does really love me.

Grief is a natural response to emotional suffering. There are different stages of grief and sometimes having extra support to guide you through those stages is very powerful. I could be that support!
