Update on Freedom in Christ study

 What a better way to experience the freedom Christ brings than seeing a soul set free spiritually and naturally?! We celebrated Lisa's breakthrough as we are heading into our final parts of the study, the steps to Freedom in Christ.

From left to right: Lisa, Susan (Lisa's mother), Lily, Christine, Lora and Jen

We give all glory to God for his amazing transformation of this life! He is our deliverer, healer & sustainer of life. In John 14, verses 5 through 6 when asked by Thomas how they will know the way, Jesus answered him, "I am they way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, expect through me." As Lisa learned though her bondage, the world offered no way out, but through a Christian counselor and the power of the Holy Spirit, she was totally set free. Her spiritual freedom, was followed by being released from restrictions set on her by the courts. As we know, whom the Son sets free is free indeed!! Hallelujah!!!

She is giving glory to God for her freedom by sharing it with others. The opportunity arose as her twin, Lora encouraged Lisa to share her testimony with the waitress. We included her in our celebration of what Jesus has done for and in Lisa!

 Our waitress, who rejoiced with us!

God is so patient, long-suffering, forgiving and gracious!! We thank the Lord for what he's doing 
in the lives of the women who comes to Daughters of Naomi Embraced to become a part of the family. The counselor who referred Lisa to us is a big part of the success of ladies who come to know they are loved, cherished and can be what God has called them. We are grateful for partnerships with other believers and all of you who pray for us and the women we serve. God bless you!!

 Freedom in Christ

We have started a series of classes for our group, from the Bestselling Author, Neil T, Anderson called the Steps to Freedom in Christ. These are provided through Bill Jones, Reverend of World Partners Missionary in Residence at Bethel College. He has graciously gave us access to his video teaching sessions. We have also purchased the booklets for our ladies to study and provide Rev. Jones' notes. As we go through this process the women will experience the Introduction and Biblical Foundations, which we started on June 8th. This teaching is powerful and so important to breaking the strongholds in their lives. Please pray for us as we continue these lessons that will last through November. 

There is something the enemy hates and that is when God's people get knowledge and understanding from His Word. Especially when they use it against the enemy and break free of his lies and manipulation of them! This is the motivating factor for Daughters of Naomi Embraced. Our number one desire is to see women free from the control of the devil and his demons. The first step of course is knowing who they are in Christ, understanding what He did for them to make them free and acting on what they know. As Rev. Jones teaches, we encourage the ladies to ask God to show them what they believe about what happened to them, what He says about it and renouncing their disbelief of Him or wrong belief about themselves.

Prayer is a large part of this study. The relationship with their heavenly father is the most important a women can build. Our relationships with earthly parents and relatives do play a huge real in our beliefs. So as this can be very detrimental having toxic or unhealthy relationships. So each woman must have a prayer partner. We pair them up at the meeting and they take time together as we progress through the study. This builds relationship, trust and spiritual bonds of sisterhood.

Please keep us lifted up for the Lord to do a mighty work!! Blessings,

Mentoring & Support Group

 We are going into our third session of the year and have a great group of women that have been attending! God has blessed us so with a new location. The bi-weekly meetings are great for those that come and receive a meal, are accepted in a loving atmosphere and can be a part of a family setting to share with others in similar situations. As we build back a woman's confidence and provide them with tools to move past their sometimes tragic circumstances their lives change.

There are many resources but not all are specific to needs, especially the emotional, spiritual and physical requirements. We are thankful we've been able to assist women from all over our county and even outside our area. So, as we prepare to continue the work this year, we hope that you can support us in whatever way you're able. We believe that it is a great way of reaching out to women and their children in these uncertain times. May you be blessed as you give and thank you in advance!

Happy New Year


Hello Friends & Family,

I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year and hope you are all doing well! We are resuming our Bible study and mentoring group. Please keep us in prayer as we serve ladies that are coming from all walks of life. We serve dinner, have prayer and get into the Word as well as discuss issues including addiction, recovery, feelings of abandonment and healing from abuse. As we know the healer, Jesus and share his love with those that come they begin to realize they're not alone. We all at one point in our lives have experienced loneliness or feeling of loss. In Hebrews 4:15 it says, "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet he did not sin." Thank God that he sent his son not to condemn us but that through him we might be saved. He did for us what we could not do ourselves. Glory to his name! 

We appreciate those of you who support the ministry. You're a blessing and many lives are changed because you partner with us! So, know that women who are at critical times in their are receiving the Word of God and a family atmosphere to belong. We make sure they feel connected and loved as we welcome them to the Sisters of Strength Mentoring and Support Group. Daughters of Naomi Embraced is  continuing to reach out to women in need and provide essentials so they can move forward in life. So, if you would like to come and be a part, feel free to call or contact us via email. 

In His Service,

Thank you for your prayers!

 Happy Spring! We appreciate your prayers and we humbly ask you to continue to pray. God is so merciful and gracious and we do not take that for granted. In this season, in approaching the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ and this time in our lives in this world, I believe our focus must be re-directed to follow the will of God. Many times I have chosen my own and it was a disaster and ended in hurt. The struggle to follow our flesh is strong, but Jesus overcame and that is my hope! That as He did, so can I. No matter how many times I have to pick myself up and start over. Without the precious blood of Jesus none of us would have a chance. I am returning as the Word says, to my first love. Because He first loved us, that is the best news we could ever hear.

We had a visit from some great friends in ministry, Dale & Faith Ingraham from Speaking Truth in Love. They are advocates for abuse victims and speak to churches on how to deal with offenders and offer assistance to survivors. I encourage you to look them up and pray for them as well. They blessed us with an awesome on-time word from the Lord and we spent a wonderful weekend of fellowship.

I have also spent time with my spiritual mom and dad, Charlie and Linda Easton, who have poured wisdom, love and the Word into me as well. God is not going to leave us alone, no matter how it feels. I have been through grief, loss and rejection in my life, but the one constant is that my heavenly father has never left me or forsaken me. I will continue the work He has called me to do until my last breath. Whatever capacity, whether its financial assistance to women in need or pointing them in the direction of other resources, God's work will go forward. Please know that I am thankful  for all of you who are pouring into or have poured into my life and those around me. God bless you and be with you

New Year, New Vision

 As we begin a brand new year and look ahead to what God has for us, it is exciting! The Lord is expanding the ministry and I am thankful!! We know that God does great things and I have no doubt this is going to be our greatest year ever. Planning and expecting to see God's best for his people we anticipate the Lord moving as His spirit leads. We can schedule events, book dates and connect with other ministries, but most importantly we need to connect with our Heavenly Father and seek His will. 

We were invited to attend a community prayer event and knowing the heart for God these leaders have, we accepted to partner with them. What a blessing it was! Beautiful time of worship and petitioning God for our city, state, country and world. When the body of Christ comes together we can be in unity as Jesus and the Father desire.
I'm so thankful to the Lord for his people that are believing and acting on their faith in Him to change our world. Each one of us have a part in that and I pray you realize how important it is for you to seek and follow what He has called you to. Whether that be as a homemaker, in the corporate world, on the factory floor or in your ministry, never forget why you're here.


Prayer meeting at the Dahnke Ballroom overlooking the Notre Dame stadium with hundreds of ministry leaders and pastors.

Sister Pam Wood invited me to share at God's Highway to Heaven church in Warsaw, Pastor Bob was so gracious and the people had such a fervor for the Lord. Sister Pam gave a fire-filled message on stirring up the gift that God has placed in you! Thankful for this woman of God who I found to have a kindred spirit and such great love!!

After the service I was able to sit down with a young lady, Krista who dedicated her life to Christ that Sunday night. She had a precious little girl and was desiring to change her life for both of them. We were able to get her a Bible as she didn't have one, but wanted to read and know God for herself. I explained how to read and pray the Holy Spirit give her understanding. It was a divine appointment that night. I truly believe God orders our steps as we walk with Him.

Our very own, Heidi Heckaman along with her husband, Andrew and Christine Anders have been hosting a weekly co-ed Bible study on Thursday evenings in Osceola. We have been blessed to be a part and hear God speak through His Word and His people.

We are anticipating 2022 to open new doors and offer more service to our community. Keep us in your prayers and as you're able consider donating to help the ministry continue. We appreciate your support! You make a difference in changing lives and making an impact for the kingdom of God!! May the Lord richly bless you in every area of your life.
