Hi, I’m Ginger, a passionate lover of Jesus whose’ testimony is full of depth. My long-term commitment to Christ as well as twists and turns much like a hallmark movie where life doesn’t turn out the way you want yet in the end…Jesus wins!
I’m expressive in word, actions, and smile, frequently leading me into conversations with total strangers. Through my life God has created an eclectic picture of failures, redemption, restoration, loss and restored hope, self-hatred to deep love, infertility to overwhelming miracles, broken to restored relationships and disappointments to countless answers to prayer.
Out of that picture has come vast learning experiences and abilities resulting in a unique resume of personal experience; Adoption, Sales, Missions Work, Music Ministry, Writer, Coffee Shop Manager, Ministry Advisor, Business Development, Marketing, Youth and Women’s Ministries, Homeschool Mom and more. Life experience and pain is often our greatest teacher. This has been my avenue of schooling.
I currently live in Alexandria, MN proudly wearing my “I’m with the sexy bald guy” T-shirt. I married my husband when I was 12 (kidding I was 18) and although It took us a while we now have three miraculous children. I’m the worship director of our local church and Director of Public Relations for TPJ. I reconnected with Sarah, our President, in 2017 with one sentence “We need a YAP book for Minnesota.” The rest is history. God has had me on a wild and amazing adventure since then and I will step into this new role with the tenacity that I accept all of God’s callings. (once I’m done analyzing, processing and maybe kicking and screaming a little)
When I speak at your event there will no doubt be laughter and tears as I share my various testimonies and personal experiences with you. I’ve been told I have a voice that you could listen to all day (my kids disagree) and the ability to transport you to the moments of my life and encourage your heart as it points you to Jesus, my first love.
My life is living proof that God can use unqualified people in positions above their station to further His kingdom and bring all the Glory to His name!
I pray you never let the enemy silence your story!
11 Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
1 Corinthians 1:26–29
26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards,not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.
