Delaine Blackwell

God saved Delaine when she was just a little girl and has placed within her an insatiable love for His Word and a passion for teaching women.She currently leads a weekly Bible study that reaches women throughout the midlands of South Carolina. She has led study tours, Bible teaching conferences for missionaries and their children and evangelistic efforts internationally. Since discovering II Timothy 1:7, she daily turns from a victim’s life of fear and unbelief to follow God’s high call, wherever it may take her. Watching God transform the lives of women by the power of His Spirit and His Living Word is the thrill of her life. She is convinced that when you disciple a woman, you disciple the world.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.
II Timothy 1:7
