The purpose of Joy and Hope Restored ministry is to reach those who are looking to know God and experience His power. We want to bring truth and freedom to those who desire to live the life God has for them.
This ministry was created to empower and equip individuals. How? By giving you tools to defeat anything in your life that maybe hindering you.
We will provide individuals with the tools needed to walk in victory in all areas of their lives. Learning how to stand and believe that God’s promises are for you, begins the process of experiencing Gods power and goodness. We offer many resources including training for ministry leaders in spiritual warfare.
My vision for this ministry grows out of my personal life experiences. I endured a lot of trauma and loss in my life that contributed toward a distorted view of who God was. I lost my mom to suicide and my sister to cancer during my youth, which in turn led me into drugs and a life filled with depression, anger, and suicide attempts. I believed this was the life God had consigned me to and that I would always live in pain and be different from everyone else. A toxic and abusive relationship in my 20’s crippled me even more into believing lies of who God was and who He created me to be. I was angry at God because I felt like He was making an example of me, and I didn’t understand why He chose this life for me.
My path to freedom began while attending Rhema Bible College. It was there that I first started to understand the love of God. My life changed dramatically. I came to believe that God’s restoration power wasn’t just for people in the Bible, but it was for me too. Through many years of healing by the renewing of my mind, I learned the true character of God. My eyes were opened also to how the devil operates and how he had decieved me. I chose to fight and take back the abundant life that Jesus died for me to have. God set me free from suicidal depression, drug addiction, and an abusive relationship that I was captive to. He also healed the emotional pain and grief that I experienced from the death of my sister and mother. God does heal the broken hearted, and I am an example of His tender kindness and care.
Now I’m compelled to help others live in true freedom and stand empowered by the truth of who God created them to be. I want to help them on their journey to healing and restoration through God’s power and word.
I am currently based in So Cal.
