Our first and foremost desire is to bring glory to God by demonstrating the love of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. Although my first profession 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 full-time ministry in 2011. Likewise, my husband, Philippe, who has been a captain with United Airlines and is now a charter pilot, followed the Lord’s leading to serve His children around the world.
As ordained ministers, Philippe and I are called to undergird the body of Christ through intercessory prayer and teaching the Word. Having served for many years on the Global Leadership team for ILI (International Leadership Institute), we’ve traveled the world teaching the eight core values of the Christian faith. Now partnering with the leadership team of MICN (Missional International Church Network) as their prayer ambassadors, we are working to build a strong prayer foundation for church planting teams around the globe. While the pandemic put a temporary halt to our international travels, the technological marvels of Zoom and WhatsApp have allowed us to continue to expand our ministry. For a broader picture of what we do, see the International Outreach page.
Having partnered with Healing Tree International to establish weekly services of Christian Healing Prayer (CHP) in hospital chapels beginning in 2013, our active presence in these hospitals was suspended in March 2020 with the onset of COVID-19 resulting in necessary precautionary measures. The CHP teams still meet weekly via Zoom while hoping to regain access to hospital chapels. See our CHP page for more information as well as to download healing ministry training materials.
A tremendous blessing arising from the confinement of the pandemic has been the birth of another book baby, Daughtering: Helping Loved Ones Finish Well. Joining its three literary siblings, this work is detailed on our Books page. You’ll find links to some of my published articles on the Blog page, as well as inspiring, topically arranged devotionals derived from my hospital chapel reflections of the Chapel Reflections page.
Thank you for coming along on this journey with us as we taste and see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
