Jenny’s heart is for ladies and especially those who need encouragement in the valleys of their life. She used to do a lot of counseling, but God has changed her season slightly and she now has a “coffee ministry” whereby “I love to listen and love those who need to offload confidentially”.

She believes God has given her a talent to be a vessel of His grace and minister in love and encouragement as well as giving practical help to those who are either terminally ill or who have a terminally ill loved one.
