Life Legacy

Wanda spent her life in pursuit of helping others find God and find themselves. For eleven years she was a counselor at Crownsville State Mental Institution in Crownsville, MD; helping young men and women fettered with alcoholism, drug abuse, kleptomania, schizophrenia and other manner of problems. She would even open her own home to some as a halfway house. Shortly after leaving Crownsville, she began a career in pastoral counselling from her home and continued to help those in need well into her 80's. Wanda has led conferences across the United States, educating the educators and bringing them closer to God.
