About Kelly Ann
Kelly is very happily married to her loving, supportive and gracious husband, John, for 22 years. Nearby where she lives she enjoys her delightful daughter, Jen, and charming son-in-law, Mike, and her first, precious granddaughter, Eleanor (Nora). She is surrounded by lots of love!
After spending over 30 years in the corporate world, God called her into full-time ministry. She is the founder of Kelly Ann Women’s Ministry, Inc. She has a deep fervor for serving the Lord by imparting to women everything that God has taught her. Her vivacious style and ability to convey her life experiences assists women to apply to their lives what she has learned. With our minds being the battlefield where the war never ends, mental health is an area that has continually piqued her interest, so this will be the emphasis of her ministry for women.
Kelly possesses a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Phoenix University and a Graduate Certificate in Biblical Studies from Liberty University. Kelly has also studied the Bible regularly for 18 years. She is a firm believer that knowing God’s Word means nothing unless you “apply” it to your life.
Kelly had been a Certified Group Fitness Instructor for 20 years and combined health and fitness with ministry by teaching fitness classes while sharing her uniquely-created devotions.
Kelly discovered the healing and freedom available by obeying biblical principles taught by God and hopes to effectively instill these principles to all women so that they can experience the same.
Kelly Ann's Commitment to this Ministry:
Kelly Ann has pledged her allegiance to each of you as representatives of the women in this ministry. This is her personal commitment: I commit to giving “my all” to this ministry. With all of who I am and all that God gave me to work with, I commit to doing my best to minister to women. I admit that I cannot fix anyone. I am in need of God’s help just like you. I will not attempt to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. But I have fully surrendered my life for God’s work. I have asked the Lord to equip me to help people, as I need His help with everything in my life (1 Thes 5:24). I have yielded to the Lord to offer to others the greatest gift that I possess – “God living in me!” I commit to allowing God to live through me to help you. Then, in turn, my hope is that you would be willing to do the same for others.
I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to Him (Rom 15:17). I will not speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me.....in leading others to obey God by what I have said and done, through the power of the Holy Spirit (adapted from Rom 15:18). I make every effort to say and do what leads to peace and mutual edification (Rom 14:19). My teaching is not my own; it comes from Him who saved me (adapted from John 7:16). I work for the honor of the one that God sent to die on my behalf and I commit to speaking only His truth (adapted from John 7:18). If any of you chooses to do God’s will, you will see that what I teach comes from God and not from me (from John 7:17, 14:10). Any truth from God’s Word that I have learned was because God revealed it to me (1 Cor 15:10).
I commit to being “with” you, caring, and listening as much as I am able. I am willing to look you in the eyes and to enter into your experiences, whether joyful or painful. As I have learned, this is how the invisible God becomes visible. Just being in the presence of each other can make a painful circumstance much more bearable. I am reminded that when I serve others, I am actually serving Jesus (Col 3:24). I have prayed to surrender any reluctance I have to get involved with someone else in need. Even though I can only help to carry your pain one day with you, Jesus wants to carry it with you every day. Let me remind you that this life is not all there is, but that we have hope for another life in which pain, suffering, sin, sickness, and sorrow will no longer exist. Just like Jesus took our suffering upon Himself and felt our pain for us, He deliberately chose to embrace pain that wasn’t His. (1 Pet 2:24; Isa 53:4-6, 12). This is exactly what Jesus wants of us – making the invisible God visible by responding to the pain of others. I will give my best effort in doing this. For others, I volunteer to hurt with a hurt that I would prefer not, and I also volunteer to accept a pain that I would rather do without. But God who has comforted me now expects me to comfort others with His compassion and grace (2 Cor 1:4). I want you to be assured that no matter what you’ve experienced in this life, you are indeed still lovable, valuable, and worth something. I again, commit to you deliberately, unreservedly, and willingly to be obedient to Jesus by suffering alongside you as we both eagerly are set free (1 Pet 2:20). When we live individual lives, apart from others, it can become intolerable; but when we choose to live our lives as a part of a community with each other, we are never alone in our pain (Heb 6:10). This is also why Jesus died; to make it possible for us to never be alone. We always have available His presence and private communion with Him. The closer we get to Jesus the more we are helped, and the more we can help others. I solemnly vow to keep confidential everything disclosed to me. I will also fully rely on the Lord to help me and equip me to accomplish all of this. This is my commitment to you. I encourage you to join me, and my hope is that you are willing. God says that He rewards those who serve Him (Heb 11:6).
