Ordination as a Women’s Minister

Ordination as a Women's Minister

I am from the small town of Kossuth in Mississippi in the USA. I am excited about my ordination as a women’s minister with the Christian Leaders Alliance and my studies at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about Studying the Bible, Click Here). My husband, Ricky, and I have been married for 28 years. We have two children and five grandchildren, with one more due any day. My family, my children, and my grandchildren are so precious to me.

Finding God’s Purpose for My Life

I have struggled with depression and anxiety for many years and attempted suicide several times. I wondered why God put me here on this earth. When I received the Holy Spirit, I realized God’s purpose for me. Shortly after I received the Holy Spirit, I received the call to preach. Therefore, I knew I had a purpose from God on this earth. If it was only to preach one sermon, it was worth it all.

I preached my first sermon in August! Then, I knew God had me survive through all those suicide attempts to spread His word. If I only preached that one sermon, it is enough for me. I am so happy to share God’s Word with the world. If it were not for the Christian Leaders Institute, I could not take free classes and receive ordination as a women’s minister with the Christian Leaders Alliance.

Free Classes at Christian Leaders Institute

At the time I started these classes, my husband and I were having financial problems. There was no way I could have answered my calling if it had not been for the free classes online at CLI. I thank God for CLI! All those who make CLI possible are such a blessing to me. They have made my dream come true.

Please pray for me in my journey as a women’s minister. I don’t have any definite plans on where to go from here. I am following where the Lord leads me. Thank you all for your prayers in advance. God bless you!
