What are you passionate about, Wendy?
I love reading the Bible and studying it. I love seeing people come to the Lord. I love seeing women find their gifting and operate in them and watching them grow. I love my children and grandchildren. I love being a mom to others who need one. I have a mother’s heart and this is my primary calling. I love organizing conferences and developing new conferences. I love beginning new Ministries from nothing and watching God grow them to become something miraculous. I love people mostly but some are definitely more challenging than others. I love writing and seeing the words come to me before I can type them. I love getting together with family. I love living beside the water and watching it’s many moods and colours. I love colour – bright colours. I love coordinating outfits with jewelry and decorating my home. I love being a woman!
What is challenging for you?
Dieting and exercise are probably the top of my list. I do try to walk as often as possible. I find relaxing challenging and taking time for myself difficult. I love Ministry so much that I sometimes overdo what I need to do. (Taking care of me is important or I won’t be able to do what I need to do.)
What do you like to Read?
The Bible; sometimes light Christian romance, although not too much time for that. Authors I enjoy are John Bevere, Joel Osteen, James Dobson, Joyce Myers and John Maxwell.
What do you do for fun?
I love table games like Scrabble, going for walks by the river, and love to read. Watching a good family movie, travelling with my best friend – my husband – love spa treatments, and cruises are the best.
