Her love of journaling helped develop her book, Crumbs Along the Broken Path that tells God's steadfast faithfulness along a journey of rebellion, redemption and restoration. Her story has been featured on the 700 Club and various interviews. Her delight is to share openly what God has done to overcome times of personal tragedy which has led to a deep relationship with Jesus.

Verna rests 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 through the hard places of life. Verna is a recent widow, momma of four, gramma to five, and works part-time in the medical community. (She is also the proud caretaker of a popular cat named Glory).

Our group was so blessed to have Verna come and speak. She has had an incredible life and her willingness to share those experiences gave her presentation an intimacy and power that moved our group tremendously. Her topic “Sacred Space” went right to the heart of our trouble finding time to commune with God in our busy lives. She was a pleasure to work with, patient and flexible with our antiquated and limited resources!

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.

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.
