About Me

“When I feel helpless, still I’m not hopeless; when I feel lonely, I’m never alone. When I am broken, I don’t fall to pieces; when I am the weakest, In Him I am strong.”

I grew up in a Christian home, with Christian values, but I was as lost as lost could be. I graduated from a Christian school, went off to Pensacola Christian College and majored in missions/Bible, and was still as lost as lost could be. I married, had children, taught my girls about  Jesus, taught in a Christian school, yet I still had no relationship with the Lord. Yes, I’d made a profession of faith, but it was just words. I had no relationship with the Lord.

I went through a divorce, fell into a deep depression, lost everything. That’s when I saw who I really was, a daughter who needed her Father. On November 13, 2011, I bowed and ask the Lord to forgive my sins and to save me. From that moment on, I have had no doubts about His love for me or about my place in eternity. I am His daughter, loved and precious.

I now teach other hurting women about the love of the Father. In Matthew 9, there was a women who needed her Father’s touch to make her well. She knew if she could just touch the hem of His garment, she would be made whole. When Jesus felt her touch Him, He turned to her and said, “Daughter, your faith has made you whole.” No other place does Jesus call a woman anything but her name or “woman.” Here, He said, “Daughter,” a loving term.

The Lord has called me to serve in San Ramón, Peru. He has placed on my heart that I am to begin my deputation process in August of 2017, with the prayer of being on the field full-time in September of 2018. I know that that sounds impossible, but with the Lord, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I can’t tell you “why” I have the peace about September 2018 in my heart, I just do.

I will be sent from my home church, Country Woods Baptist Church, who will also serve as my mission board. If you or your church is interested in supporting my ministry, please contact me here or at my email address, hrt4Peru@yahoo.com.

I was a mess…. But God…. Sharing His healing with hurting women.
