My Testimony

I came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour at the age of ten. My mom, who was going through a traumatic divorce at the time, had a radical conversion three months prior to my salvation. Normally I wouldn’t condone forcing a child into doing something they absolutely refuse, but in my case, her stubborn defiance to take me to her new church against my will, paid off.

Dragged into church and made to sit in the second row from the front was not what I had in mind for a Sunday morning. I would much rather have preferred my boring traditional Sunday School. With arms folded and a scowled face, the message was clear: ‘I don’t want to be here!’

However, once the worship started, the Holy Spirit started working in my heart, and by the evening service I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour. That was the beginning of my new life in Christ.

I came to know God as my Father in a very real way. My tears and brokenness from the rejection and abandonment I felt from my natural father pushed me closer to Father God. I felt His comfort and His Holy Spirit ministered supernatural healing to my soul during my teens. I had many Divine Encounters with the Holy Spirit, especially during Youth Camps.

From a very young age, I knew the Lord’s Hand was upon me, that He had called and separated me unto Himself, and the work of the Kingdom. As a pianist and singer, I served in worship bands wherever I went – whether in South Africa or during my travels abroad.

I completed my Grade 8 in Classical Piano (Royal Schools of Music) and obtained a 2-Year Diploma in Graphic Design (Art Director’s Workshop, Cape Town), and Bible School (His People Bible School, Cape Town/London).

My travels (UK, Europe, Scandinavia), ranging from several months to a year at a time, formed a big part of my life during my twenties. The Lord used these trips as teaching tools, tuning my ears to His Voice and growing my spiritual muscles as I courageously stepped out at His instruction. It was a time of great adventures with the Holy Spirit, seeing Him touch people through my obedience, wherever I went.

The Lord laid the nations on my heart during this time. He confirmed His Call on my life through many well-respected international prophets that ministered to me. (Pst. Ray Martelle – Canada, Dr Bill Smith – USA, The Oral Roberts Worship Team – USA, Cathryn Browne – Scotland). The year 2000 was a significant year for me. This was the year that the Lord’s Voice started trumpeting out His Plans and Purposes over my life as a prophet to the nations, for the healing of the nations, and it was the year that marked the beginning of my songwriting journey.

I started devouring books on the Prophetic and Apostolic, Church History and Revelational Truths. (Rick Joyner, Dr Bill Hammon, Graham Cooke). I studied the Word, and sought understanding of the times.

I embarked on my greatest adventure when I married my husband, Warren, in 2002. A greater level of healing and restoration began, and the Lord started levelling the ground in my life. He brought stability and maturity as we built our own family. We have four beautiful children and currently reside in South Africa.

Word of Life Christian Church (Fish Hoek) has been our spiritual home, under the leadership of the late Dr. Lionel, and Pst. Rose Roode. It has been a safe place where the Word and Spirit is taught and lived, without the deadness of church traditions and legalism. Here, I have been given much freedom to grow and use my prophetic gift.

Being part of the ‘Company of Prophets’, has opened a door to gather with other prophetic voices, interceding and decreeing prophetically, the Voice of the Lord over South Africa.

The Lord has led me to start this website in 2016 as a platform to share my music and Prophetic Words. It has been a joy to release that which I hear from Heaven, to encourage and impart the things of the Spirit to the Bride.

We are living in exciting times, it is an honour to be part of His Bigger Picture as we’re making history right now. The Lord is doing a new thing, and it is with humility, dependability, and faithful stewarding, that I write and share the Voice of the Lord. May it be a blessing to you.
