“Audrey’s testimony was powerful and Christ-honoring.”

CS Frankenmuth, MI

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

Hebrews 4:12

“Audrey’s teaching is biblically based, touching hearts, transforming lives, and honoring the living God.
