Guest Speaker

Hi I'm Joanna, a mum of 2 teenage children, Finlay and Darcy. We live in a small village in Co down N. Ireland with our newly acquired border terrier puppy Lenny. I've been widowed just over 5 years now, after my husband was killed suddenly in a motor bike accident. 

This trauma has led me down a path where I have developed huge empathy and compassion for the bereaved, the hurting, the lonely and oppressed in our society. 

I am part of a team at care for the family who run widowed Young events all over the UK. We are currently online, but hope to deliver these day and weekend events face to face once more in the not too distant future.

I am also a Careline advisor at care for the family, helping signpost and support people from all walks of life who are finding they are struggling for whatever reason. I'm passionate about helping people and ultimately empowering them to live productive, happy lives!

As a qualified Counsellor, I also volunteer with a charity here in n Ireland called Christian guidelines, delivering therapy on a donation basis. 

I love the Lord and all He has done in mine and my children's life. I can testify His rod and staff have comforted us. If I can be Christ's hands and feet to those hurting and comfort others with the comfort I have been given then it is a privilege to do so.
