About Our Speaker: Helen Evans
Helen was born on the island of Trinidad. She lived in England as a young woman and there she obtained her nursing diplomas (Registered Mental Nurse, RMN and State Registered Nurse, SRN). She is the sixth of twelve children. At two, she went to live with friends of her parents. Her adoptive mother was Catholic. Helen was baptized Catholic but spent over 20 years away from the church. Still, God gently called her back. At one point a patient said to her, “It’s no ‘accident’; God put you where he wanted you.” This had a profound effect on her since she thought her choice of psychiatric nursing was an ‘accident’.
In 1998, Helen was contemplating missionary work in South America. She sought the Blessed Mother’s intercession. The answer surprised her. She was led to mission work, not in South America but in marriage. A number of challenges occurred within her marriage including incarceration of a son. Depression and a suicide attempt have led Helen to a deeper understanding of marriage as a mission .Healing has come for her through what she calls Rx Forgiveness. She says, “Rx Forgiveness has no side effects except the fruits of the Holy Spirit!” Helen is retired and lives in Little Rock with her husband, daughter and granddaughter. She volunteers with the St. Dymphna Society and with Magnificat in Conway, AR. She is a group facilitator for Project Rachel.
Two of Helen’s favorite scriptures are:
“Darkness is not dark for you, and night shines as the day. Darkness and Light are but one” and
“You formed me in my inmost being, you knit me in my mother’s womb.”
From Psalm 139
