About Renee

Renee.CasualPhoto_CroppedHi there. I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Renee. I’m a Word-lover, heart-encourager, story-teller, and grace-needer. I’m also a bit of a mess and have been known to take my dogs medicine (accidentally) and call the fire department a few times.

My favorite place to be is with my people, hiking in the N.C. mountains or binging on Parenthood episodes and pretzel sticks dipped in Nutella. I’ve been married to the most patient man on earth, for twenty-two years and I’m the mama of two grown-up man-cubs, Joshua (20) and Andrew (18), and a sweet Ethiopian princess, Aster (7), who our family adopted in 2009.

My passion is to help women discover the power of their stories, the uniqueness of their gifts, the beauty of their experiences and the wonder of the passions God placed in them  by equipping them with courage and confidence to make a difference right where they are, with what they already have!

I’ve had the incredible honor of doing Familythat for over twenty years in ministry leadership roles through the local church and through Proverbs 31 Ministries as a speaker, author and co-host of Everyday Life with Lysa & Renee radio show that airs on over 1100 stations across the world.

In 2011 my first book, A Confident Heart, released the same month my father passed away and my daughter was diagnosed with significant special needs. That year changed my life as I learned how to do less and trust Jesus more – with the dreams and assignments He’d given me. And my ministry grew more during that season than any other as I watched the Holy Spirit do what only He could do!

Immeasurably more, than I could think of or imagine, I watched God meet an epidemic need in the hearts of women who struggle with self-doubt and insecurity through my story of brokenness and the power of His grace and truth, while at the same time turning A Confident Heart into a national best-seller.

Has God’s given YOU a dream or an assignment that looks impossible? I understand. Do you ever doubt you have what it takes to fulfill His calling on your life? I have. And sometimes still do. But now I know what to do when it happens and how to get my heart back to the truth.

And that’s why I’m glad you’re here. I’d love to encourage your heart along the way and embrace the beautiful assignments, stories and callings God has for us. I hope you’ll sign up for me email updates so we can stay in touch and learn {together} how to rely on God’s power in us, and His presence with us, to fulfill His purposes for us — even when life feels impossible around us!

xoxo ~Renee

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
