Here’s what others have to say about Wholly Loved and the team!

Wholly Loved

“Wholly Loved presenters are very dedicated, filled with the spirit and easy to work with. From the very beginning of planning to the actual conference day, these women of faith were a delight! Their strong faith and eloquent, open sharing provided the Bible-based message we need to hear again and again – we are wholly loved in Christ. The breakout sessions were valuable and allowed time to process and gain further insight. The presentations were heartwarming and inspiring.  Over and over I received rave reviews about how the attendees wished more sisters in Christ could have been a part of this affirming event. The heartfelt messages that were presented touched our inner soul and spoke to women of all ages from teens on up. You are strongly encouraged to make this event happen for yourself and the women in your life!”

Dawn Ford

“I was so pleased to learn that Dawn Ford has committed herself to this particular ministry. Having known her for 18 years, 9 of those as her minister at the church she attends, she was always one that connected with others, especially those who didn’t seem to “fit” or had come from complicated past walks of life. Dawn has a gift of wit that the Spirit uses to put people at ease. This makes her approachable, yet credible to witness the love that God has for all people.”

As the former executive minister of the McPherson Avenue Church of Christ in Council Bluffs, IA, I witnessed Dawn’s passion for the Lord, heart of service and giftedness for uplifting others through her ability to live, show and articulate Christ’s love through her written and spoken words. Dawn is a hospitable, genuine, tireless servant of the Kingdom whose fire continues to burn bright for the Lord.”

“Besides being a gifted author, Dawn Ford is one of the most dedicated, hard-working, persevering, faithful people I have the privilege of knowing. She has a genuine love for Christ and isn’t afraid to show it, live it, or speak from her heart. Women of all ages will be blessed by her ministry. And I’m abundantly blessed to call her friend.”
