In trying to cope with her new world as a divorcée and sort through the reality that her husband of thirty-five years was unfaithful, Evelyn became depressed and the world around her became dark. She felt a cloud hanging over her head. She stop enjoying the things she took pleasure in before her divorce. She didn’t want to go outside or open the blinds to view the outside world.
One day Evelyn had a vision, and after her vision she began to see things clearly and optimistically. It was that day, after having that vision, she knew God had healed her heart. After God healed her heart, she wanted to help remind others in similar situations that what God did for her he can do it for them as well. It was from her own testimony that her ministry and counseling service “God Can Heal The Heart” was birthed.
