A unique perspective 

 Prior to my life in ministry…

I had the opportunity of a lifetime to live and work in Orlando for MGM-Studios (now Hollywood Studios) and then in Japan as an entertainer for Tokyo Disneyland playing the coveted “Princess” roles of Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Sleeping Beauty and Mary Poppins. My childhood dream had come true! But not long into my entertainers’ contract, I found myself wrapped up in a secret life of sin and self-destruction. Buried by the weight of hefty competition and the constant demand to be “perfect”, I developed an eating disorder to stay thin and employable. Disgusted physically and emotionally, I began looking for love in very wrong places. My dream had quickly spiraled into my worst nightmare—that was, until one fateful evening in Japan. On January 14, 1994, while attending a Billy Graham Crusade at the Tokyo Dome, I gave my broken heart and life to Jesus. That unique salvation experience began a life-altering journey that later led me into full-time ministry.


sharing life-transforming truth

For more than two decades now, I have traveled extensively preaching God’s Word, sharing my testimony, and teaching practical, biblical principles to hundreds of thousands in churches and conference centers to both men and women of all ages.

In addition to ministry, I serve as a leadership trainer and keynote speaker for several corporate, secular organizations. I also serve as a motivational speaker and character educator for the Department of Education in the public school system. To date, I have had the wonderful privilege of speaking into the lives of more than 600,000 students in more than 500 public schools, integrating positive values and speaking candidly to teens about real-life issues such as drug abuse, promiscuity, suicide, family hardships, eating disorders, cutting, and low self-worth.


find hope and healing

I’m told that my authenticity and approachability is refreshing. That’s a goal for me personally…to be a safe-space for others. That’s why I never shy away sharing from my own personal struggles. It creates an atmosphere for grace to do what only it (He) can do. It also makes a way for self-examination, learning, laughing, crying, reflection, and ultimately, healing. And that is the ultimate goal and my heartbeat–to help others find hope and healing in Jesus. 


Published Author

In 2009, Jennifer became a published author with her first book, Get Over Yourself: 7 Principles to Get Over Your Past and On With Your Purpose.  This best-selling book was latervexpanded into an 11-Week Bible Study Curriculum that has been offered in seven countries to date and, by the grace of God, is transforming hearts and lives all over the globe. 

What Others Have To Say

Thank you so much for coming this weekend to our women’s conference. I thank God for the message you delivered.

I wanted to share with you that I had the opportunity to pray with a 73 year old woman, and God set her free from a deep, wounding pain she had never shared with anyone, including her husband. When she was 15 years old, her brother, whom she loved dearly, tried to rape her.

I prayed with her and watched God reach down and begin the process of setting her free. It was a powerful experience to see God at work in such a way… especially since this precious woman is my mother!

I had no idea of the searing pain she had been hiding all these years. Thank you so much for allowing God to use your story for His glory!

Grateful Daughter

I want to thank you for coming to and speaking at the FCA Banquet. You really touched my life and opened my eyes to areas of being a father I had not realized. I have been the men’s ministry leader for several years here at my home church. I have taught men’s discipleship classes, classes on being spiritual warriors and spiritual leaders of their homes, but I can’t teach them the things you brought out. Like I said, my eyes were opened to areas I have not seen before. I can’t relate to men how a daughter feels or relates to them, or is impacted by them. You can!

Keep up the good work. And tell every father you get the chance to talk to about what a fragile gift his daughter’s heart is.

Father and Husband

You probably receive hundreds of these each day, but I wanted to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story.

My daughter and I went to the women’s conference in Salisbury, MD on Saturday. The whole event was spectacular, but I believe we were there by divine appointment to hear you.

My sweet daughter is 18. She’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She has had a rough senior year of high school due to severe bullying, some rebellion from the need to fit in and recently, the pain of consequences endured during that rebellion… She related to you and to your story so well, Jennifer. You have touched her life deeply!

Thank you, truly, for your kindness and your strength and your fervent, effervescent love of Jesus!!

Conference Attendee, MD

You came to my church yesterday and I just wanted to share with you how you changed my life….I have talked with countless therapists, counselors, and preachers in my lifetime; and I didn’t think anyone understood me until I heard you speak! I really wanted to come to the altar, but my pride wouldn’t let me. (I was crying so hard, I didn’t want anyone to see.) But I have NEVER heard things put the way you put them! I now FINALLY “get it” and I truly believe that there IS hope for me!

I just wanted to say that I am so thankful that I got to meet you, hear you speak and to start your study. God bless you for the work and ministry that you are doing!

My very sincere thanks for all that you shared at our ladies seminar… I was so moved, and captivated as you shared your testimony of pain and joy. I was fighting back the tears, and forced to deal with my own suppressed pain, wounds, and mistakes. You, Jennifer, were used by God to help this little girl finish the job of allowing the finished work of healing and freedom in my heart! I love you for that!

Youth Pastor

You will never know the impact of this weekend for me and my family. I am forever thankful that God connected me to you in a way that I cannot describe. I feel and know that what you are doing is vital, necessary, God called, and life changing.

Jennifer is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She is a true princess with a heart for God. She has a beautiful gift of making people realize that dreams really do come true!

Shirley Ann Scott

Beloved Former Co-Pastor of The Church on Strayer

You truly blessed me more than you’ll ever know. I struggled with anorexia, bulimia and self-harm for seven years and you sharing your story brought tears to my eyes. I really needed that awakening!
