Spirit Filled Minister, Life Coach, & Author
Lydia was only 6 years old, she was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit and the Lord began to use her to pray for the sick. Signs, wonders, and tangible miracles began to follow her. Prayer and worship became her favorite pass time. While attending a Christian school, the teachers knew that during lunch time, Lydia would disappear, only to be found later in the sanctuary reading her Bible, in prayer, or in worship. Everything changed in her life when she turned 11 years old. Abused and rejected by those who should have protected her, she ran as far away from the Lord as she could. Drinking, drugs, and partying became her normal. Lydia sought to numb her pain from abuse, rejection, and abandonment at any cost. Her life descended into a deeper struggle with severe depression, anxiety, anger, and fear. It would be several years before she would return to her her first love (Jesus) and surrender all the pain that had her stuck in life.
Once Lydia rededicated her life to the Lord, her love for the Word of God, prayer, and worship was renewed. God began to connect her with strong leaders who would mentor and coach her to let go of the pain of her past and these leaders began to prepare her for ministry. Healing and wholeness that came as a result of biblical mentoring and coaching is what motivated her to become a Certified Life Coach. Now Lydia is helping others find the freedom they need to transform their lives through prayer, removing doubt, and letting go of everything that hinders a deep relationship with Christ.
At the age of 19 Lydia accepted the call into ministry. The desire for prayer, worship, and study His Word, became like a burning fire shut up in her bones. In 2019 she published her first book, Catch the Fire, A Journey to an Effective Prayer Life and is currently working on the release of Catch the Fire Workbook (ordering details below). If all goes well, the release date for the workbook will be December of 2019. Catch the Fire is the first book in the UNSTOPPABLE series. Within the pages of Catch the Fire, not only will you find practical teaching and revelation, but Lydia shares her testimony of overcoming severe depression, anxiety, PTSD, and borderline agoraphobia. The Catch the Fire book and Workbook are thought provoking and will have you putting into action what you learn. Catch the Fire will provide you will tools to become UNSTOPPABLE in life and in prayer.
