About Jeannine

What a difference a year can make. The left photo is 4 months after chemo treatments & the right is 1 year later!

I have a heart to encourage women. 

I spent my teen years in the tumultuous sixties. During that time, I embraced the changing philosophy that women were self-sufficient, didn’t need men — and could have it all. After  believing that lie, God brought me through some heartbreaking and life-changing experiences.

I have personally experienced the transforming power of God in my life. I am genuine, transparent and passionate about sharing this transforming power with others. I am also a recent cancer survivor who can relate to those going through that horrible disease.

As a result of these experiences, I have the  ability to relate to women of all ages, races, and walks of life. The Lord has given me a powerful message for women trying to juggle single life, marriage, children, education, career and even cancer.  I deliver a word of hope and encouragement by teaching and ministering with wit, humor and most importantly a biblical foundation.

I resides in sunny Florida with my husband Jeff, a pastor and Bible teacher. We have two adult children who have blessed us with three beautiful granddaughters and one handsome grandson. I have studied the Bible for over 30 years. I have had the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at numerous conferences around the world and has appeared on national Christian television.

For a speaking engagement, contact me at jeannine@gratefulone.org I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you about your next event and how I may minister and serve you and your group.
