Welcome to Women Ministering! I am Fleda Bennie – the founder of Women Ministering – a place for women who are changing the world by sharing God’s love. Women Ministering provides connections through our Facebook page, resources through blogs and our Shoppe, and links to products, pages, and resources you can use for daily life, ministry, and everywhere you may need them. I am so glad you’re here.
The motto of Women Ministering is “Be Inspired to Flourish.” To flourish means to “grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment.” What could be healthier than an environment of faith and the Word of God?
To minister simply means to serve! Women serve everywhere – at home, work, church, while recreating, in small groups, in public service, serving the needy, and a thousand other ways! With our unique gifts and challenges, we come together to change the world one step-at-a-time by simply sharing God’s love everywhere. This is ministry!
Women Ministering is here to help, support, give guidance, and inspire you to flourish as you fulfill the calling of God in your lives. I want to be used by God as a tool to help you grow and develop in a healthy or vigorous way by creating a healthy environment called Women Ministering! As ambassadors of Christ, women all around the world create healthy environments, and Women Ministering is there for all of you.
A Little About Me
I live in a small, rural town in Idaho with my wonderful husband, 3 dogs, assorted cats, and other creatures all on our farm. We live on a hillside with an amazing view of the beautiful valley we live in. I’m a motorcycle rider and love to walk with my Goldendoodle – Buddy!
Every day, I thank God for what He has done for me. I’m a wife, mother of 3 incredible sons, one stepson and one stepdaughter who are both genuinely great as are their spouses, mother-in-law to the three best daughters-in-law anyone could have, a grandmother to 7 grandchildren, 6 step-grandchildren, and, best of all, step-great-grandmother to two of the cutest little girls you ever want to see, Autumn and Sunny.
I founded Women Ministering as a woman who has spent her entire life (over 50 years) in ministry, doing everything from Funeral Dinners to being the Pastor. I and my late husband started two smaller churches and also served on staff in three others. My great desire is to see women set free to reach their full capacity, overcome obstacles, and fulfill their vision to serve Christ while loving Him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. I also founded a faith-based, non-profit that serves victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. I worked there for twelve years, at the same time, working for seven years at a County Prosecutor’s office with victims of crime. I retired in 2019.
In 2015, my first husband died instantly in an accident, shattering my world. Eleven months later, I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. I’m now cancer-free and remarried in 2018 to a wonderful man. God has restored my life and hope, and my faith is stronger than ever. I share these things to let you know that I understand what it means to minister in and outside the church and to endure difficult life circumstances. I speak from my own experience.
This is my passion – to provide a place where women fulfilling their calling in Christ can Be Inspired to Flourish!
