Marie Miller, Founder of Foundations Ministries, Visits Sacramento Home

Marie Miller, full time evangelist and Founder of Foundations Ministries based in Ontario, Canada, was invited to the Mercy Ministries Sacramento home this week to share an encouraging message with staff and residents. Marie has a heart for Mercy Ministries because of her passion to help the “next generation” discover the call God has placed on their lives. Cheryl Bangs, Program Director of the Sacramento home, had the amazing opportunity to accompany Marie to Zambia, Africa in June of 2007 to establish the first Women’s Arise Conference in that nation. The purpose of this conference is to unite women from 13 African countries for prayer and worship.

During her time with the Mercy residents, Marie offered a timely message about the heart. Sharing from Psalms 4:23, she explained how God does not expect perfection but rather, He desires us to come to Him just as we are. Marie challenged residents to guard their hearts against things that will hinder their relationship with God, such as unhealthy emotional relationships, jealousy, and negativity.

Here is what a few of the residents had to say about her teaching:

Michelle said, “Marie shared with us how our first priority has to be giving our heart to God because if we will do that, the rest will follow. If God’s love is in my heart then His love can flow out of me.”

Cari said, “Our heart is the most precious part of who we are, so we need to guard it carefully. I need to understand that I am defined by the love of God and not by what others think of me. I am beautiful just the way I am!”

Janelle said, “I learned that jealousy can destroy me and negativity can destroy everyone around me.”
