Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant

My name is Michelle Yvonne Wren-Thoreson. I am 51 years old and just got married to the man that God brought into my life. We were married on the 8th of September in 2018 at the Highway 2 Heaven Bible Church. Now, inspired by our wedding, I have completed the Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant at CLI.

I grew up going to a Christian grade school in northern Illinois with a significant transition to public school for Jr High and High School. That was a major cultural shock! I did not grow up with Christian values. I endured physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. My parents were divorced when I was three years old, and my father remarried later that same year with my mother remarrying four years later. I grew up not liking myself and constantly doubting myself. Constant criticism and put down made me feel that I could never do anything right.

I grew up as a Baptist. But, once I was on my own, I turned away from the church. I never had a good role model in Christianity. Since then, I have found my way back to God! I rededicated my life and got baptized on Easter Sunday in 2018.

Finding free ministry training at the Christian Leaders Institute, that was and is a Godsend. Now, I have completed the Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant course. Currently, I am taking the Deacon Ministry Ordination course. My next goal is the Women’s Ministry Ordination courses. I desire to help my husband in ministry work for our Lord Jesus Christ. Then, we can both grow in the Lord while helping others.
