“I was fifty-three when I was called into ministry. I thought I was too old, but God said it was just in time.”
Have you ever felt that way—you are too old to start something new, to take that risk, to love one more time?
A Woman’s Journey to Becoming Mother 2 Many is Joann Wittler’s story of obedience even when she thought God was asking her to do something absolutely crazy. When she asked the Lord to show her how to start a homeless ministry, God kickstarted a chain of events she never saw coming. She was turned down by the town council multiple times, traveled to Chile to rediscover the meaning of love, and was screamed at by a Tacoma homeless man after she handed him a knitted scarf. Yet on every page, Joann displays godly perseverance, faith, and love.
If you feel called to do something for God but you keep putting it off because you feel unqualified, this book is written for you. God is your teacher and He will qualify you—because on God’s timetable, it is never too late.
Joann Wittler loves sunshine but lives in the least sunny part of Washington State. A native of Seattle, Joann grew up in Tacoma and Puyallup, where she met her husband, Steve. They have a blended family, which has taught them the power of unconditional love, especially when raising teenagers. This patience served its purpose when they started Mother 2 Many, a nonprofit outreach for homeless teens, in January 2013. She and her husband travel to local skateparks in their sunshine-yellow, food-laden truck and trailer, to share a ray of hope with the youth. Visit www.mother2many.org for more information.
