Arlene is a wife, mother of three, and a covenanted member of the People of Praise Christian Community. With a degree in Biology, a Masters in Business Administration and a Certification in Religious Studies from Christ the King Seminary, she teases that she just can’t do anything artistic! A story-teller by nature, Arlene comes to offer words of encouragement and maybe a bit of humor as we face the challenges of life, with a strong focus on the power of the Holy Spirit. Her mantra comes from Philippians 4:13: “In Him who is my source of strength, I have strength for all things.” Although sometimes it’s “A meal without dessert is a wasted meal” or “Life is better with chocolate.”
