Family Life

Although Renee wears a lot of hats, her favorite and most important are the ones she wears at home. She’s been married to her best friend, JJ, for over twenty-one years and they have three children: Joshua (19), Andrew (17) and Aster (6). She and her family live in Charlotte, NC.

She and her family traveled to Africa in 2009 to bring home their beautiful daughter who they adopted from Ethiopia at the age of 10 months.

For the past 20 years Renee has served on the leadership team that grew Proverbs 31 Ministries from a small newsletter to one of the leading women’s ministries in America and currently serves part time as Executive Director of Radio and Social Media.

Statement of Faith

I believe in:

  • One God in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Jesus Christ’s deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, atoning blood, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven
  • The entire Bible is God’s infallible revelation to man
  • Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone
  • The resurrection of the body: eternal glory for believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell
  • The one true church, the body of Christ, consisting of all believers
  • Obedience to our Lord’s command to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness
  • Christ’s personal return to establish His Kingdom on earth
  • The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus
