My ministry began when my son was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Over the past year I have learned that our country and our faith community have failed to minister to the needs of this specific demographic of people. Alongside those that live with serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar and schizoaffective disorders there are caregivers who also need the love, hope, encouragement and support that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
I have devoted my life to helping those that cannot always help themselves and their families and caregivers. My vision is to see those effected by serious mental illnesses treated humanely, compassionately and with the dignity allotted all children of God.
My ministry is based upon…
“Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;”
“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”
I encourage you to please lift me up in prayer as I move forward in faith to fulfill this vision God has placed upon my heart. Pray for those that live daily with these diseases and pray for the family and friends that care for them. Pray that our country adopts a more compassionate understanding of the forgotten ones who are suffering all around us, sometimes in plain sight.
If you would like to partner with me in support or if you need prayer for a serious mental illness or a loved on who is struggling please contact me in the below ways. If you are a Pastor or Minister and would like more information on how to serve those with serious mental illnesses in your congregation I would love to speak with you as well.
I believe Jesus Christ is the answer. He can give people the hope, love, and support they need to make it through these dark times and I want to encourage people that Jesus loves them and is willing to help them no matter what they are facing.
