As someone who has taken on the task of writing about suffering, Teri Graham writes from experience with warmth, and compassion. If you have the opportunity to sit and talk with Teri, you will soon learn that her experience with suffering brought a depth to her faith and a deeper understanding of what it means to take up your cross and follow Jesus.
Teri has a passion to see God’s people grow and mature in Christ, and this passion permeates every page of her book. Teri has learned that God is able to turn tragedy into triumph. She invites readers to join her on her journey through pain and suffering into her own personal triumph. She believes that wasting our pain is a loss of the potential of what we could become, and that great affliction can be a launching pad to great ministry.
Teri was involved in ministry as a church volunteer from 1997 until 2003, and during that time developed the prayer ministry of the church. She has been involved in pastoral ministry since 2003, with her primary ministry including women’s ministry, prayer ministry, teaching at Olympic Bible Institute, educational ministries of the church, mentoring, and biblical counseling. She is a well-received speaker at local churches, women’s retreats, and special events for women.
Teri graduated with honors from The King’s College and Seminary in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theological Studies, Biblical Counseling emphasis.
Teri has lived in the Bremerton-Silverdale area of Washington since 1997. When she is not busy writing and ministering, she enjoys time with her husband, Frank, and their five grown children, Mark, Jesse, Bethany, Jordan and Micah, and their six grandchildren.
