Nan Goodenow

Nan has a desire to help others, especially women, to discover a Christ-centered perspective in the midst of life's circumstances. After spending 20 years running from God, including just short of 10 years hating Him for the death of her 3 1/2 year old son Zachery, Nan fell back into the loving, faithful arms of Jesus. Over the past 16+ years Jesus has literally "restored the years the locust have eaten" and Nan now walks fully (most of the time!) in the freedom of Christ. Her passion is to help others find that same freedom from shame, guilt and regret as Jesus replaces it with His grace, forgiveness and mercy. Nan is married to her amazing husband, Gary and is overjoyed by the graciousness of God who blended together Yours, Mine, Someone else's and Max; her 17 month old grandson and joy!
