At the heart of Jeannie is her love for ‘being a mom’ and a ‘Nonnie’ to her kids and grandchildren…they are an absolute joy! She often finds herself in the heart of situations where she is mentoring, counseling teaching, and being ‘that mom like figure’ to many across the US.
She has been quite gifted with creativity, while loving to cook and decorate; her most passionate gift is her gift of Worship. Jeannie started playing the piano (so her siblings say) at 3 years of age. She would come home from Sunday School and plunk out the song she sang in Sunday School. From that small beginning to where God has brought her, which is ministry, directly to the heart of The Father in Worship. She is used in vivid ways to change the spiritual atmosphere within a setting due to the gift of music/worship that God placed within her. As great as her gift of Worship is, so is her gift of Faith! That gift helped her walk through the birthing of ministries, to following God’s call to different parts of the country, to her super-natural physical healing from a diagnosis of a severe case of Rheumatoid Arthritis 12 years ago! At the direction of many, she has since written a pocket book about her healing titled, “Healing IS For Me! Jeannie ‘Lives the Word’, ‘Speaks the Word,’ ‘Teaches the Word’ and ‘Follows the Word.’ God called her in to ministry at a Foursquare Pastors Conference under the ministry of Jack Hayford. God clearly spoke to her heart, “I want you for ministry!” She has embraced that call knowing that ‘it is not the applause of men that is eternal, but rather the applause of God!’
While early on, she worked in the business work place – Jeannie has been very instrumental in the overall operations (from the business aspect to the ministry aspect) from start to finish of CRA Ministries, Int’l. Two of her favorites Bible promises are II Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ.” And then Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” And to you Jeannie would say, God has a triumphant plan for YOU!
