HELPING BROKEN PEOPLE
Heal and Thrive
When I was 10 years old, I was sitting in my closet making plans to kill myself. No one knew where I was and I felt alone. After being in the closet for what seemed like forever, I had a thought to read the Bible my sweet little granny had given to me. I found it. As I read it, I began pacing back and forth in my bedroom, making sure not to trip over my bed. Little did I know I was mimicking many preachers I would see later down the road.
At 15 years old, I watched my younger sister gasping for air, turning blue in the face, after I punched her in the center of her chest. That night I had a dream that changed my course for the rest of my life. I got on my knees and promised God that I would do whatever it is he wanted me to do. At first, he had me take baby steps of obedience. Gradually his direction has transpired to me taking huge leaps.
I’ve traveled to different communities preaching, serving and sharing the gospel wherever people welcome it. I am passionate about helping broken and hurting people find healing from past and present pain so that they can live a Christ-centered life and achieve their big dreams.
I’ve been in full-time ministry for five years and serve as a Pastor along with my husband in our hometown. My husband and I live in Questa, NM with our five children: Izziah, Micah, Mariah, Zachariah and Hezekiah.
God is a Personal God
Sometimes the situations around us are so severe, that we look at the circumstance and lose focus of God. This talk will help everyone who hears it to let go of the lies that they aren't good enough, to let go of the pain of rejection and to let go of the weight of this world so that they can focus on Jesus.
Praying Passionate Prayers
This talk teaches how to use the emotion of anger to catapult passionate prayers and worship that lead to transformation from the inside out.
Worship While You Work
Is work a curse? God has a plan and a purpose for us and He wants us to enjoy our work. This talk is will help get people to answer the call on their lives and awaken a passion inside of them to do what God has designed them to do.
