Morning Glory Ministries was created out of a need to minister to people who’ve experienced suffering in any or all of it’s forms. Whether physical, emotional or psychological, suffering is something we all have encountered and need to heal from.

My Story

From the trauma of a date rape at the age of 21 to the heart wrenching choice of either keeping my baby after discovering my pregnancy or giving her up for adoption, I discovered that Jesus walked with me, cared for me and greived with me as I made my life changing choice, a choice that I thought would be the hardest one I’d ever have to make, but God was not finished with my story of loss, sorrow and trauma. 

At 25 I married a kind, compassionate and intelligent man. In our brief but loving 3 1/2 years of marriage, we had two beautiful daughters. Then, in a moment in time, everything changed. An auto accident claimed my beloved husband’s life making me a young widow and my 20 month old and 5 week old daughters, orphans. Add to that the injuries we all suffered. I was paralyzed from a severed spine and my darling daughters both suffered serious head injuries. Where was God? Right where we needed Him to be.

My Ministry

Speaker

‘Up close and personal’ is what I aspire to when asked to speak at various events. I look at the challenges we all face in today’s changing world and offer what I’ve gleaned from my personal walk with Jesus and the lessons, based on His Word the Bible, sometimes REALLY hard ones, He’s taught me.  Weekend retreats, Sunday Morning Service or a Special Event on a given subject, I prayerfully consider how God wants me to minister to those attending.

Teacher

I love God’s Word and I love the hidden gems that He reveals as I dig into scripture. I’m trained in and have taught Inductive Bible Studies on various books of the Bible and on Various subjects. I prefer facilitating as it’s my desire for those involved to be equiped to study God’s Word themselves and to pass that knowledge onto others.

Writer

I’m a blogger. My subject matter varies but I endeavor to make a point that I hope reverberates to my audience in a personal and meaningful way. Whether it’s humour, a life lesson, or a story from God’s Word about an individual, my desire is for the reader to walk away refreshed and encouraged because they can relate to what I’ve written. Many have asked when my book is going to be published. I’m working on it!

My Approach

 

I’m often given a theme for a particular event or ministry. When that’s the case, I take time to pray about what message God wants me to bring to those individuals He’s drawing to hear me speak.

If I’m asked to give my testimony, I still seek God’s cousel as the emphasis on which part of my story I talk about may be significant to those who are hearing it.

My approach is to connect with the audience on a personal level in such a way that they realize they are not alone in their struggle or the trauma they’ve endured.
