Hi, I’m Ginger, a passionate lover of Jesus whose’ testimony is full of depth with 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 to conversations with total strangers. Through my life, God has created a unique tapestry. Using my failures and his redemption. His restoration of my lost hope. My self-hatred in exchange for his deep love. Through my infertility to his overwhelming miracles. From broken to restored relationships and disappointments to his countless answers in prayer. He is the one who beautifully weaves it together for his glory!
Out of that picture has come 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 has given me the “degree” no college could.
Life experience and pain are often our greatest teachers.
I currently live in Alexandria, MN where you’ll find me proudly wearing my “I’m with the sexy bald guy” T-shirt. I married my high school boyfriend 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 at Spirit life 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’s taken me on a wild, amazing adventure since then and I have stepped 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 places 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.
