JoEllen Claypool

Are you on the verge of a spiritual heart attack?  - JoEllen speaks about the similarities of physical heart disease and spiritual heart disease. In the midst of a woman's busy world, she shares that it is imperative to maintain a healthy heart spiritually. It is usually the first thing neglected as we are pulled in many directions as moms and wives. If we let it go long enough "disease" can take over requiring a trip to the Good Doctor's office and having to give consent for the Holy Spirit to do heart surgery on us. The ultimate goal is not to get to that point!

JoEllen speaks at women's retreats/gatherings on a variety of topics. She has also spoken to youth groups and pregnancy centers regarding unplanned pregnancies and the physical, emotional and spiritual consequences of abortion.
