Annie Paden's ministry focuses on helping women survive and thrive through daily life and difficult life circumstances. During her seventeen years of experience in a women's ministry, Annie developed compassion and understanding for the challenges women face in today's world.

          During Annie's talks, workshops, keynote addresses and small group work, her audiences explore the Fruit of the Spirit at a personal, practical level while having some fun in the process. Discover how living the principles presented in Galatians 5:22-23 can add new meaning, depth and dimension to our lives as Christian women.

                  "I was encouraged and challenged by the truths Annie shared. Each story, each verse spoke God's truth to me. I want to thank Annie for sharing and for being "REAL" cuz, girl, I GET you! I could 100% relate to her through each story, her transparent actions and attitudes...just everything! The visuals she gave have totally stuck with me. Her questions caused me to stop and truly look inward and ask God, "So how am I doing?" Yikes! But then it's so very good to know!"
