About Us

Our Story

Together, my husband Ed and I have over 50 years experience in helping people find freedom from any kind of addiction.

As of 2019, we have been married for over 42 years! We were married very young, and had many hopes and dreams in our future, and we still do. However, for 26 years of our marriage, addiction ruled in our house. Co-dependency was my very best friend. This brought along many emotions; distrust, jealousy, fear, hopelessness and heaviness. Our marriage was failing and our home was unstable for our three children. Ed’s continuous struggle with drug addiction and my reaction to it made the destruction of our family seem inevitable.

BUT God! He had other plans. In April of 2003, Ed attended what is called a “God Encounter” for men at our home church, Church In The Son here in Orlando, Florida.

A few weeks later, I followed by going to a Women’s Encounter. These two events were the catalyst that helped push our faltering family towards supernatural success. God showed up, began to heal our hearts; led us to others who knew what we had experienced and this started an amazing journey of love, forgiveness and restoration that has brought us to where we are today.

We know what it is like to be broken. For over 15 years, we have ministered to thousands of people in the same situation as ours, or many who were in a different type of addiction/co-dependency life. We have watched God time after time heal the brokenhearted, as we show others His love. This is our living testimony of the transforming power of Jesus Christ.

Our Ministry

A New Day Now is an outreach ministry birthed out of our story to help individuals and families who are suffering with the bondage of addiction and everything it encompasses. Through serving others one on one, we bring a biblical approach to treating compulsive and addictive behavior. We use scripture as our foundation because it is the powerful and complete truth from God. His word is filled with compassion and love and contains all the principles necessary for a victorious life in Him.

Our Mission

It is our desire to see peoples lives changed through the redemptive power of the love of God. We believe the word of God in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declared the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” It is our desire to fulfill the mandate of the Gospel by actively pursuing the local church, the prison, and the nations, to set the captives free!

How we can serve YOU

A message from the President

As the woman in this story on the battlefield of life, my desire is to see other women set free through the love of God just as I was. My team and I will meet with you one on one, we will go into the state penitentiaries, and have already been there. I myself serve at four different drug rehab facilities and have planted addiction recovery programs globally in three different countries. The team is now working to bring the Women’s God Encounter to both the prisons and around the world. God has given me a deep passion to see women thrive. I am always here to help.
