Daphne carries the heart of God for hurting women. She is a woman of prayer and finds great joy in praying for others. It was at a “Just Give Me Jesus” women’s conference where she experienced the Spirit of God drawing near as women were praying. She believes God desires a personal relationship with His children and He communicates with us through prayer. She has a discerning spirit and a deep passion to see the “captives set free” because “it was for freedom that Christ set us free.”
Daphne’s eyes dance with the joy of the Lord, as if God himself is looking through them. These eyes come from spending time with the Father in the secret place. Daphne’s tragic childhood experience would naturally cause her to run from the secret place, but God drew her heart to a place of intimacy that has changed her forever. As Daphne shares her story, the walls erected around women’s hearts begin to crumble giving an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to bring freedom.
Daphne has been a part of Touching Hearts Ministry (THM) since 2003 serving the ministry by interceding for and leading women in prayer. Her heart of prayer is a vital gift to THM because nothing is accomplished without prayer. In January 2014, she accepted position as Tuesday Coordinator, overseeing all of the details of this powerful day of ministry. She is a gifted teacher, as well as a speaker for women’s retreats and conferences. Daphne also partners with Crucified Life Ministries serving on mission trips to El Salvador.
She has been married to Al since 1988 and they are raising three warrior men for the Kingdom of God. Daphne believes this call on her life is above all other ministries God has given her. She is a permanent substitute teacher investing in the lives of children and a well-known and sought after realtor, touching the hearts of people wherever she is serving.
