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.
