About Denyse H. Turner


Married for 38 years, I had been a Pastor’s Wife for 36 of those years. Throughout my husband’s entire ministerial/pastoral career, I worked side by side with him tirelessly.

As committed Christians, we erroneously thought that Christians were full of love and compassion. We found out the hard way this was not always correct. My husband transitioned November 22, 2015 from severe depression and betrayal from ministry.

Now I’m sure lots of questions immediately enter your mind. They will all be answered, either through this blog or my upcoming book. Stay tuned and follow us!

This blog will take you through the entire journey of my life, my accomplishments, my failures, my joys, my grief and eventually my purpose!

Travel has been my passion since I left my trained profession of health care administration in 2005. I had owned a general travel agency since then. My focus has now shifted to Faith-Based Travel Education for churches and ministries. Faith-Based organizations would be surprised to see how Travel Ministries can impact their congregations positively. We also do customized group events. These types of events propel participants toward their ‘Dreams and Destiny‘.

Follow us as this information is intended to help women/wives who are in life’s sensitive situations that have created pain and trauma to not get stuck but to get back on the road to discovering their real purpose with God’s help. Following my husband’s transition, I spent 3 years getting certified as an Inner Healing Minister. Additionally, I was bestowed an honorary Doctoral Degree of Humane Letters by the Eastern Theological Seminary.

Although delayed, I am on the road fulfilling my God-intended purpose. But I did not find out that purpose until I went through my pain. Sometimes God has to subtract in order to add. He allowed almost everything that meant anything to me to be removed from my life to discover my real purpose. Think about Job. In Job, we see a man who God allows to be directly attacked by Satan. He is an example of faithfulness as he loses everything important to him yet remains faithful to God. This story’s purpose is to illustrate God’s sovereignty and faithfulness during a time of great suffering.

God often makes us uncomfortable in order to bless us! He will never place us in a “wilderness experience” to destroy us but to rebuild and repair us. That “wilderness experience” is necessary because when you’re rebuilt, no man will ever be able to say “I made you who/what you are”!

All the praise, honor and glory go to God because it was nobody but Him!

Is your life not fulfilling? Do you think God has something else for you to do? Learn how to discover your real purpose through your pain and trauma so you can be a blessing to someone else who is struggling!
