I was raised in a very missions-focused church culture and headed out on my own missionary adventure at the age of 19. I spent five years serving with Youth With a Mission both internationally and in Texas. In 1996 I met my husband and together we committed our lives to the work of inner healing and deliverance ministry knowing God had called us to bring hope and healing to hurting people within the church. We moved overseas to receive further training and preparation and returned to the US in time for the birth of our first child. We spent the next 20 years focused on raising our growing family while continuing to serve in inner healing and deliverance prayer ministry as well as serving as foreign missions pastors and elders in our local church in Round Rock, Texas.
