Cancer. The mere mention of the word strikes fear into the hearts of everyone, Christians included. Virtually every individual in today’s world will be touched by this disease in some way: as a patient; as a care-giving spouse or family member; as a friend who comes alongside. Some of us have experienced all three of these roles, struggling to maintain our equilibrium amidst the moment-by-moment challenges of facing this formidable foe. The good news is that when this journey is shared, the light and love of Christ can bring healing and hope to all. Glimpses is 36 chapters of Christ's faithfulness in the midst of all of life’s challenges. [More about Glimpses>>>]
My first and foremost desire in life is to bring glory to Jesus Christ. Although my professional calling for many years was as a musician and faculty member of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, I heard and responded to God’s call to fulltime ministry in 2011. With the publication of Glimpses later that year, ministry opportunities here and around the world began to increase through speaking, teaching, healing prayer and music.
Now ordained in ministry, my husband Philippe and I are privileged to serve together as Global Leaders with the ILI (International Leadership Institute) team, teaching the eight core values of our Christian faith around the world. We partner with other global ministries such as MICN (Missional International Church Network) and Healing Tree International to bring the knowledge and love of Jesus to the nations (See Speaking Engagements page).
An increasing aspect of our ministry involves establishing services of Christian Healing Prayer (CHP) in hospital chapels (See CHP Hospital Chapel Ministry page). We have trained teams of gifted, compassionate intercessors to pray for anyone who would like to receive healing in the name of Jesus. All are welcome to attend any of our hospital services.
For those of you who enjoyed reading Glimpses, a new book has been birthed and is awaiting publication later this year. Entitled Greater Things Than These - Practicing What Jesus Preached, this book chronicles dozens of miraculous eyewitness healings that Philippe and I have seen in response to healing prayer around the world. Check out the My New Book page for an excerpt as well as some articles on healing that I have written for Sharing Magazine. You can also find inspiring, topically-arranged devotionals from my hospital chapel reflections on the Chapel Reflections page.
