Abby has 18 years experience as an educator
and 17 years as a national speaker. Her
passion is speaking and teaching others
about the abundant life and grace available
in a relationship with Christ. She
communicates this message with
enthusiasm, humor and authenticity. In the
process of looking for a place to house and
minister to women recovering from drug
and alcohol addictions, she was given the
opportunity to assume responsibility of
Danielle Inn. God brought to her memory
her grandmother’s rape and death from an
unsuccessful at-home abortion. She knew
He was calling her to continue operating
Danielle Inn as a home for unwed mothers.
She became Executive Director in 2010.
One of our primary ministry goals at Danielle Inn
is to model the love, forgiveness and freedom
available through a personal relationship with
Jesus Christ and encourage this relationship
through Bible study, worship, discipleship and
character building opportunities.
