Life Abundant Womens MinistryIn February 2006 God spoke to me saying: “I have called you to make a difference in the lives of women. He said to me that women will be free but you have to help them breaking free from their past, abusive relationships, low to no self-esteem, how to start over, etc. by sending out a message of “No More Shame”. Step Into Newness.
Women have been stuck in miserable relationships and they’re feeling so lost and confused they think it might be their fault…
They’re hoping for someone who can show you the way to get over your misery and your desperation...
They’re wanting to understand why would someone you love treat you that badly
They're wondering how you ever let someone treat you that way...And they're asking themselves:
"How do I get back to me?"
"How do I get my strength back?"
"How do I get my self-worth back?"
"How do I start over and build a GREAT LIFE for myself?"
And a whole lot more…
LAWM which is now being called NOMSA (No More Shame) started in September 2007. When God had spoken to me about the women of South Africa and in the rest of the world. The time has come for the woman all over the world to stand up and take their rightful place in their homes, communities and their churches.
For long enough Satan had lied to us and he kept us so occupied with oppression, depression, abuse , rape and so much more that the women never could see that the favor of God is on them and that the time had come for the women to arise and bring healing to the rest of our sisters out there.
My aim is to travel all over South Africa, Africa & USA. I am planning to take South Africa by storm. When God had this ministry in mind He had restoration and grace to His people in mind.
I have created a platform for many woman that is called by God to live out their ministries. It is an honor to see how these powerful women of God is standing up and making a difference in other woman’s lives.
Women, its time to stand up and take your place and let’s have fun! God wants us to be happy and blessed!

1. NOMSSA: No More Shame of South Africa
A shelter for abused woman & children.
This initiative is to help women who'd like to start over after breaking loose from a miserable relationship or just by the mere fact that they need a break by providing shelter and accommodation on a temporary/permanent basis. We currently have a small space to accommodate individuals in need of a shelter on a temporary basis to share, 1-3 nights. This is charged at R30 p/d. Terms and conditions apply.
We are in process of finding a suitable building which can be used as transitional residence to accommodate these individuals on a more permanent. I Believe that every woman needs to be happy and must prosper spiritually, financially, emotionally, physically, naturally, materially and maternally. That's what Jesus came for, to have life and more abundantly.
We trust God for a complete breakthrough financially to be able to own or rent a building and also to sustain the project to continue operating. We also need items like, food, clothing, furniture, etc. Volunteers as counselors, cleaners, admin, etc from passionate community members are most welcome. Donations in any kind are also most welcome.
Currently, if there are an urgent need, i can be contacted for assistance.
For counselling please do make an appointment by calling on my cell or 0414812189

1. Beauty in training
1 Peter 3:3-5
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4 Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
A home for teenage girls where we want to take abused girls and girls from the street and assist them to be restored emotional and physically. Teach them the values of life and how to be a true woman of value. We need to give them hope for a bright future.
Jer 31:17 "So there is hope for your future," declares the LORD.
2. Beauty that shines girls
Arise girls are the young teenage girls of Life Abundant Ministries.
We have seen the brokenness in our young girl’s lives and how they are looking for acceptance at all the wrong places.
I am busy designing a program for young girls where they can learn true identity, why they are created and how to deal with rejection. The program will teach them that their identity is in no man but in God and there uniqueness is in Christ .
4 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you. When I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Young Women’s Conferences:
Topic: “Beauty I am Conference”
We will have the “Beauty I am Conference” with the following topics:
a) How to deal with rejection.
b) Single girls must choose a godly husband to share their life with.
c) Workshop on being a godly woman.
d) What are you clothing yourself with in the morning? Death and life is in the power of your tongue.
e) And lastly – “You are so beautiful to me”.
It will be our first young woman’s conference and so many lives, I believe, will be changed! We hope to be so blessed by the young girls that will say: “No More, we are standing up and making a difference!”
Other topics for young girls are: Theme: “Girl in the mirror”.
