Many people view hope as in "I sure hope so," and "whatever will be, will be," not really expecting anything more, but that is not Bible hope. The Greek word the Apostles used when writing about hope was elpis.  It means to have a great expectation of good.  We are able to have that great expectation of hope because God is a good God and He has good plans for us as stated in Jeremiah 29:11.  Like the scripture above, we can take hold of hope (a great expectation of good from God) to lead us to a life of victory.       





Welcome!  My husband, Richard Roberts and I are the covering, Co-Founders, and Administrators at Hope In Life Ministry.  We are both ordained ministers, and since 1996, we have been members of several pastoral teams.  We helped plant four churches and were the former Senior Co-Pastors of Natomas Community Church.  My ministry in Christian counseling ministry began in 1990.  In 1998, we were given a prophetic word that one day we would oversee a prayer counseling ministry.  The Lord made that happen in 2013 with the co-founding of Hope In Life Ministry.   Today I serve as a Biblical Prayer Counselor in our Hope In Life Ministry Rocklin office where I have felt blessed to meet and counsel with many people of all ages from young children, teens, adults, seniors, couples and families.

I hold a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling and a Biblical Naturopathic Doctorate (BND).  I also have a diploma from Rhema Bible School and completed Elijah House Schools of Ministry training as well as Sozo ministry, and have a good knowledge of Theophostic healing prayer.  The counseling we provide at Hope In Life Ministry is based upon the Bible, Godly principles and developing a strong relationship with our Heavenly Father.  We do not diagnose, give medical advice or prescribe medical treatments.

In 1976, I "officially" gave my life to the Lord, but always had a deep sense of God's presence, even as a young child.  Having experienced many painful events in my childhood, I understand first-hand the pain of abandonment, rejection and the complications that can arise from trauma and underdeveloped communication skills.   I understand how wounds of the heart can interfere in developing healthy relationships between family, friends and co-workers, but I also know that no wound is too deep for the Holy Spirit to heal and bring transformation.  From my own healing journey, I came to view those painful circumstances as a training ground for the glory of God and the counseling ministry He has placed me in today.  God is a God of purpose, and He does everything purposefully and for a purpose. Nothing is wasted, not even our negative experiences.  He promises to work them out for our good (Romans 8:28).

In addition to my above experiences, I was blessed to have been a national and international lecturer, and to host a Cable TV program called Experiencing God's Grace.  I have written children's books, devotionals, Bible studies, served as a chaplain to those in hospitals and prisons, and I taught a Bible Study in the California State Capitol Senate for two years.  Also, I have over 30 years of experience in conflicts resolution in the legal field.  I am a published author with Thomson Reuters/Westlaw and wrote articles for Westlaw Legal Solutions and the Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute.


My husband and I are grateful for Hope In Life Ministry and for all that God has done through this ministry to bring hope to wounded and hurting hearts.  We understand that what Jesus did at the Cross and through His Resurrection, He made it possible for redemption in all the issues of life.

"Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure..."  Hebrews 6:17-19 (NIV)
