Have someone take a picture of you when the ocean is calm…It is the best time. You don’t want a wave crashing over you!
This may sound random or out of place, but I was thinking about my grandpa’s friend’s ministry the other day. The founder’s name is Joanne Ellison and this is her bio. from her website- http://joanneellison.com
Founder of international nonprofit Drawing Near to God based in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., Joanne Ellison teaches women to make space for God so that God’s presence keeps them from being overwhelmed with life.
Driven by a vision to motivate women to pursue a deeper relationship with God, Ellison founded Drawing Near to God in 2000 and has since reached tens of thousands of women through Christian radio, television broadcasts, her weekly Bible study, livestreaming, speaking, books, CDs and DVDs. She is the author of over 20 Bible study guides, the popular 365-day Bible devotional, Drawing Near To God, Sitting at His Feet devotional and Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.
Ellison is an engaging speaker, writer and Bible teacher. Her speaking style includes both vulnerability and humor (be sure to ask her about her experience with horseflies in Germany!) and is rooted in her passion for the Bible. She has shared her passion globally, with speaking engagements ranging from the coast of South Carolina to the coast of California and from universities to the Women’s Union of Nairobi, Kenya.
She is a mother of three, grandmother of 11 and has been married for 44 years to Dr. Blount Ellison. Making her home in the Charleston area for most of her life, Ellison is a graduate of the College of Charleston and an active member of Saint Andrew’s Church, Mount Pleasant, SC.
