Hear how this witness of violence has overcome darkness with God's forgiveness and is changing lives

Matthew 6:9 "Our Father, who art in heaven..."

     What would you do if,  as Our Blessed Mother, you witnessed losing someone you love to violence? Cheryl Ward Kaiser lived through a very dark time when a home invasion robbery would change her life and her family forever.
     Cheryl’s message is a personal one of profound faith and courage by the grace of God.   It begins with some challenges in her younger years, a crisis pregnancy, and her family’s encounter with unspeakable tragedy as a result of a home invasion robbery.  She shares her struggle to cope with death, with her own survival, and with the search for God’s justice, not her own.

     Through it all, God had a plan bringing her to His ultimate triumph. She will tell how the Lord has transformed violence with love sending  her  on a  mission to change troubled young lives who hear her impassioned plea that there are ‘consequences for your actions.’  But the secret to life after disaster is ‘forgiveness"!
     Cheryl has an extraordinary gift of speaking to youth, detention centers, and prisoners about making choices and consequences.  She fights for prisoners and stands as the strongest of victims to help stop violence in our hearts and our lives.
     Because she is a woman of great courage, forgiveness, suffering and joy, Cheryl exemplifies to all women Christian faith lived out with God’s grace and strength.  Cheryl Ward Kaiser has 5 children and 14 grandchildren (7 boys & 7 girls).  Her story is not for the Faint of Heart, but it is powerful and it is TRUE!  You most surely will be moved by this woman who,  like Our Blessed

     Mother, stood before the cross.  This is not to be missed.
