In Her Own Words . . .
"One of my greatest joys has been the privilege of watching God change women's lives: setting the captive free, mending the broken hearted, and opening the eyes of new believers for the very first time. Whether it is a person's first experience with the Savior or a seasoned saint growing deeper in her faith, her passion is to tell women about the truth that can set them free to be all that God has intended for them to be in Him (John 8:32).
"My prayer for each speaking event is "that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasure of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:2-3)."
