Ladies - It is a NEW Day!  All too often our yesterdays dictate our todays and tomorrows!  Maren knows this all too well and would love to share with you one of the messages of her life.

Maren Brandsma is a gifted motivational speaker with a passion for seeing God's children living in the fullness of a Christ centered life. Her story is life changing.

“Strive for an absolute faith in an Absolute God,” she stated. “A God who heals and restores,” she spoke. “Follow the dream God gives you,” she declared. “Step Forward for God’s Kingdom,” she motivated and “Climb the mountain set before you”… These are the passions of Pastor Maren Brandsma. Her life some would say is amazing, her past hard but victorious. Having come from a broken home and being a survivor of abuse, Marens’ triumphant life story is a personal testimony to the forgiving and healing power of a personal relationship with Christ. The message is clear… and her voice breaks the silence of life bringing truth to each ones heart. The Brandsma's faith journey is a story of miracles, overcoming fear, following God at all costs and believing that God is the giver and equipper of dreams.  They inspire others to climb the mountains in their lives, to persevere through the desert lands and grow strong through the rocky teraine.  God has truly given them a life that relates to others in so many ways and life stories that will challenge and grow others.  It is their desire to share their life with the world and inspire others towards freedom, dreams and the persuit of God's special call on each individual life.

Topics Include:

-“Living By Faith” After living by faith for 5 years, not know where housing, food or work would come from, moving 7 times as God provided, Maren delivers a compelling talk about the excitement of living in God's will and relying completely on the Master

-“God’s Plans ~ Your Dreams” Focusing on finding God's plans for your life, how God puts dreams in our hearts that connect with His calling on our lives. Never too big, never too small God opens our eyes to these dreams one step at a time.

-“Body Building” The heart of 4 HIS Ministry is building the body of Christ.  With a passion Maren encourages the body to become active, to step out of comfort zones, to get excited about God's call and become a body of Action.

-“Mountain Climbing ~The Brandsma Family Journey" The story of how any ordinary can become extraordinary.  Settled into a happy life, in a happy neighborhood, with a pleasant job, content to live life out and retire right where you are?  The story of how God rocked the Brandsma's happy world and challenged them to climb mountains, conquer fears, jump off cliffs and become who God created them to be.  If you want to challenge your congregation to stop settling and being comfy in the same pew each week this story just might give them the courage to leave comfortable and aim high!

-“The Victory Dance ~ This is how we overcome!” Maren's personal story of overcoming a life of severe abuse, tragedy and heartache.  A life changing story that encourages everyone who has been hurt, suffered loss or even been an abuser to become victorious in Christ.  Living a life of forgiveness and love for her abusers Maren's joy and passion will offer hope to everyone who hears her.

-"Healing for a Woman's Heart" Broken friendships, childhood abuse, abusive marriages, lost children, words that wound, rejection, anger, shame...the list goes on and on.  We live our lives with these labels and with the heart ache they carry.  We live seeing everyday and experience through the pain of our past experiences.  God can and will heal your heart, lets begin today!
