More About Teresa Nelson

* A Passionate Mission

Flexible and fun, Teresa shares with audiences a variety of inspiring stories from Scripture and her own life, including adoption, nonprofit ministry, jail ministry, and cancer. Her greatest joy is seeing people come to the precious understanding that they were meant to be redeemed by God, live in His soul-healing grace and thrive in HIs eternal refuge of  love.  

* Ministry in Church and Community

Teresa is a pastor of a rural MN congregation, and she also ministers weekly in her county jail. 

* A Cancer Calling

She was given the opportunity to experience cancer, and a BRCA 1 gene mutation,  and traveled the challenging road of treatment and recovery.  For several years following, she led a Christian cancer support ministry, helping people on their cancer journey.

* An Author and Auctioneer

Teresa is the author of Tender Mercies for Tough Moments: a 31 Day Journey into the Blessings of God .  This daily devotional steers readers into the love of God no matter their situation. 

For extra-curricular service, Teresa works as a licensed auctioneer, Teresa helps nonprofits and churches gain profits through live auctions.  That is just plain fun for her.  "Whatya' gonna' bid?"

* A Fun Family

Teresa and her husband, Steve, enjoy the wildlife on their farm, their four grown children, their spouses, and nine absolutely adorable grandchildren.  For refreshment, she believes there is nothing quite like drinking very good coffee, while engaging in great conversation with exceptional grand friends. She would love for you to be one of them!
