Stories of Healing

-Since 1993- A loving, safe place for ALL to find healing and change the world around them


For I made the decision to know nothing [that is, to forego philosophy or theological discussions regarding inconsequential things and opinions while] among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified [and the meaning of His redemptive, substitutionary death and His resurrection]. (1 Cor 2:2 AMP)

And you [He made alive when you] were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of your transgressions and sins… (Ephesians 2 AMP)

I would not be alive today without the love and support this ministry has shown me!  I am convinced that no matter the amount of resources available, LOVE is what changes a life. Loving the “unlovable” and providing a safe place for the most grievous of struggles and circumstances, The Wings of Refuge, works with individuals until they find healing and can live out their freedom.

Wings works with the whole family to see each family member restored and empowered in their connection to one another… to see marriages healed, families restored, and communities transformed.  Here you will encounter the Living God and receive all that He accomplished at the Cross for you… and life WITH God becomes a reality!


Well where do I begin, I came to Wings after trying all of man’s ways of healing for physical and emotional illnesses. I truly did not expect much, but there was an anointing in this place and a level of prayer I have never experienced in all my life. I started seeing results of true healing with God, for a broken heart, physical abuse, cancer etc etc. Today I know the power of His love, compassion and mercy for me. He is the only healer and can do what no man can do. He sees the depth of our wounding and the emptiness in our soul that can only be filled by God. What other God died for me? Just one- “Jesus”.

He alone saw my tears and felt my pain. I felt His tangible presence at Wings, a peace, a comfort, love I have never known. It took that kind of intercessory prayer to be healed. I could not do this by myself. I spent years taking  sleeping pills, at Wings I slept for hours.

The dedication of the owner Lisa Marie and the intercessors to do things God’s way not man, says it all. It’s Jesus’s hospital.

Ps 46… Knowledge of Jesus & Knowing Him as my Foundation when nothing else stands – Security in Him alone!

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 1:2)

Fear of the Lord in knowing and encountering His Jealous Patient Long Suffering Love for me, WHO uprooted the wrong jealous love of man that came from fears & insecurities. And on the Victory side able to see & feel God’s heart for others…awareness of what He’s doing – His Ways instead of just knowing His acts…true Intimacy with Him myself and others with no walls- encountering & knowing Intimacy to be safe, vulnerability is safe and not shameful. 

REAL LOVE IS COVERING & not exposing like the world’s ways.
The honor to have a team of warriors/true friends surrounding you who are truly on God’s team and fighting with & for me was new territory that really healed a lot of ‘Trust issues’ for me! So grateful!!!

Physical and emotional Healing and love like I’ve NEVER known, experienced before and most certainly never given until I allowed myself to receive. I fought it because I felt I didn’t deserve, sprinkled with  unworthiness and it MUST be too good to be true. Just Believe??? What?? But once I started to let Him in I experienced true joy and love (not performance, “what can I do for You for You to love me.) more of His truth as it sinks in, pulls out the enemy’s lies.

Reading about my Father’s love constantly because I can’t see Him,  I read that He loves me but to believe it has taken a lot of time and watching Lisa Marie love me especially when I didn’t even love myself,  all the while asking “why? what does she want from me?”

Until I started seeing Lisa Marie’s love for others and her constantly pointing us back to Jesus like 20-60 year old kids with lots of scars, SHE ALWAYS LOVED! She came and prayed and held and loved me at my worst and I’m forever grateful and will never stop. I have such a hunger and desire to love others like I’ve been shown here, all for Gods Glory. It all starts and ends with Him.

Since coming to Wings, I’ve experienced such breakthrough with ‘fear’. The Lord has done so much healing in my heart from childhood trauma and wounds. I went from wrestling and pushing people away who loved me, because I was terrified of being rejected and abandoned, to now being more settled in the love of my Father.

The Lord has placed me in a family and my heart is open to a deeper place of intimacy. Now when I feel the fear rising up to put walls up, I’m quicker to recognize and agree with what Abba would say.

Romans 12

When I came to Wings I was in so much pain. I had been living on my couch in agony, on 19 medicines and was giving myself shots in the stomach weekly. I was on anti-depressants, prescribed Opioids, xanax and getting shots all over my back because I hurt everywhere. I finally came to realize that nothing was working. So I cried out to God. I basically was done, I didn’t want to be here anymore.  I was on FB and Kyle Idleman met with me twice then sent me to talk with Kristen Sauder who sent me to Wings of Refuge, specifically Lisa Marie. And my journey BEGAN with Jesus…  I went to church every week but did NOT know God. I did an Intensive where the most loving and wonderful people I never knew existed prayed over me night and day and I was undone by His love through them. I was forever on this new journey (which I fought with all I had but they loved me anyway). 

I really just didn’t understand this type of love. I was self-sabotaging and didn’t understand that either. I now see I was trying to disqualify myself because I just knew they would eventually …but God!!! They hung in there with me. God love them all.  After my Intensive I walked out of most of my medicine & within a few months I was no longer going to the rheumatologist. The Drs had labeled me with rheumatoid, osteo, fibromyalgia and much more …but God! I am 69 now 6 years later. I’m partnered with the Lord and my friends from Wings that we all walk through life together in prayer and love with one another in our weaknesses loving Him and others along the way!!! I’ve never been more alive and so very GRATEFUL!🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽👆🏼  I owe everything to Jesus and Lisa Marie’s YES to Him!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU
