Brenda’s life verse:
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. – Psalm 34:17-19

Brenda’s desire is to see people that are in desperate need of healing experience the truth and love of Jesus Christ. She believes that through brokenness and pain, we experience the healing touch of God and bring glory to His name. Brenda advocates that HeartLife Professional Soul Care is a counseling ministry committed to doing just that. She believes it’s a distinctly different approach to counseling designed to heal the souls of our brothers and sisters in Christ so they can live the abundant life God desires.
