Pastor Elizabeth  

How did God call you to Radiant Women Ministry? 
I kept looking for someone else to lead, then God gave me a dream and in this dream there were women wrapped up as corpses lying on the floor. My daughter, Alex, was pointing at the women and asking me, why? I saw my daughter as representing the younger generation looking at older women for guidance. Pretty dramatic! But I think that's the only way I would have taken the lead.  It worked!
What's your personal go to verse?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.”   Proverbs 3:5-6  
What's one thing you have learned since becoming a Radiant Woman? 
I love women!  Women are relational, strong and wonderful multitaskers.  At first I was afraid to lead women because I believed we were too sensitive, emotional and even complainers, but I've learned that is not true!  Or it doesn't have to be if we are spirit controlled. I have learned that we play such a vital role in the lives of our families, church and communities. The enemy wants to distract us by keeping us against each other. Instead women are called to reach out in forgiveness, understanding and friendship. If we would trust God in this - we would be a force.  
If you could give one message to women, what would it be? 
You were created with a purpose.  God breathed in you everything you will ever need to fulfill your purpose. Don't listen to the enemy and be discouraged when he whispers, “you are not enough,” or “you are too much.”  Instead say, "I was created by God to do good works."
