More About Verna Bowman


Everybody Has a Story

As a past ministry leader I know the search involved in finding a speaker to meet the needs of women today. I have had the privilege of serving in women's ministry for over twenty-years, as Bible study leader, teacher, mentor, and retreat coordinator. In addition, I am a freelance writer and share my reflections on my blog, Encouraging Women One Story at a Time. My heart is to encourage women of all ages to find wholeness through the healing Word of God.  I share my story with a blend of transparency and practical truth with the hope to inspire others to discover Jesus on every page of their own story . My love of journaling developed into a recently published book, Crumbs Along the Broken Path – an inspirational collection of personal stories that tells of God's faithfulness along a journey of rebellion, redemption, leading to restoration. I write the amazing things the Lord has done in my life so that I may bring hope to others. My articles and short stories are featured in Guideposts, Woman's Day Magazine, Power for Living, Cup of Comfort Devotional, Threads of Encouragement Series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and various Christian periodicals. Many of my stories tell of a family's struggle with ongoing tragedy that led to the deep places of faith. I have rested in the passage from Psalm 27:13, I would have despaired if I had not believed I would see the goodness of God in the land of the living to walk me through each story. Gratefully, I am a wife, mother to four, grandmother to five, and work as a medical secretary and patient advocate.  For more insight into my ministry, I hope you'll visit my website – I look forward to hearing from you!

We invited Verna to be our guest speaker at our annual ladies' retreat! She immediately made a strong connection with the women as she shared her personal story through "What If" ~ the women were drawn to her authenticity and genuine care in helping them discover "Even If-faith" in their own story. As a gifted communicator of God's Word, she will touch your life and challenge you to a deeper relationship with Him. I would highly recommend Verna for your upcoming event!

"Verna is one of those special ladies who you meet and feel you've known all your life. She so easily blended with our ladies with her down-to-earth theology and sound biblical teaching. It was a weekend that changed many lives as God used Verna's testimony to reach into their own lives and see His handiwork."

Our women were blessed at our fall retreat as Verna shared how God met her in life's most difficult situations and brought her closer to Him as a result of seeking His Word. The women felt her sincerity and willingness to be vulnerable was an unforgettable gift of encouragement and inspiration. What a precious time together!

Verna was gracious enough to speak at our Women's Seminar in April 2016 in spite of going through months of personal difficulties. Her words were poignant and sincere. Comments from the many women in attendance contained only accolades. Multiple compliments about the applicability of her words to every women there (which included a wide range of ages). Her thought provoking sessions encouraged us in new ways in our relationship with God. We admired how personal she was in sharing her testimony, linking her story to scripture in Mark 5, of the woman who reached out for the hem of Jesus garment.

Pastor Ruth Hendrickson

Verna Bowman is a speaker that engages and breaks right through to the heart of the women. She shares challenging personal experiences - fully wrapped in the presence of God. The end result is a powerful focus on God in the midst of every circumstance that life will throw out you. This focus is combined with a release of hope and trust in a powerful God who can surely hold us each step of the way.

Verna joined the ladies of our church for a pre-holiday event, where she gave a wonderful talk that reminded us of what is truly important to focus on during Thanksgiving and Christmas, so that we may be more like Mary and less like Martha — or Martha Stewart! Her warm and thoughtful presence helped us all breathe in an important message before the hectic season carries us away. Afterwards, every woman who attended remarked on how much they thoroughly enjoyed it. The way that Verna shared some of her own struggles in life made it clear to everyone that she could both relate to them as women and as Christians. I’d highly recommend inviting Verna to speak to any Christian’s women’s group. We hope to have her come back to see us again one day soon!

Verna has lived turbulence, disruption, and disappointment. Most importantly, Verna has lived and continues to live in the peace and purpose ministered by the Lord Jesus. She's not just a survivor, but she is a learner, a disciple of Christ Jesus, and a faithful communicator of God's goodness and truth.
