Danelle Craycraft is an ordained Pastor through the Christian National Church who graduated from Liberty University with Bachelor of Science degree in Religion: Christian Counseling; certifications from Light University and American Association of Christian Counselors in “Marriage Works”, “Extraordinary Women”, “Breaking Free”, “Caring for People God’s Way”, and “Sexual Issues”. She and her husband Scot, shared vows of marriage in 2008 where they now live on the Central Coast of California. Danelle was raised in a loving Christian household. By the time she was ten years old she had accepted Jesus into her heart, was baptized by water, baptized by the Holy Spirit, received her spirit language, and started to see into the supernatural. Growing up, her worldview was one of acceptance and keeping a non-judgmental attitude. Her parents ran a weekly bible study in their home for ten plus years, witnessing to all different types of people. She saw God move in their lives and learned that we are all family through the blood-line of Jesus Christ. When Danelle was eleven years old she experienced rejection and unknowingly agreed with it. The fear of being rejected followed her through her young life, and out of that fear she made choices which ultimately compromised her values as a Christian. Her attitude and behavior kept Danelle on the fence with God. She knew God was real, but wasn’t ready to give up the things of the world that kept her from feeling accepted. Eventually, Danelle emotionally hit rock bottom, felt depressed, and wanted to feel real unconditional love. God used Danelle’s mom (Kim Donaldson) to help her see the light in her dark situation. Something inside of Danelle woke up; the light of God invaded the dark rejection that was living inside of her. She believes that God has the power to heal all hurts of the past we have received from others. God has continually freed Danelle from the power of fear, guilt, and shame; through the righteousness of God, and His healing power has given her significance and security in her life. She no longer lives in fear of rejection, knows what real love feels like. God’s love is the reason she is not the same person she once was. Danelle has a spiritual desire to see souls set free of the things which bind us to this world and usher them into the loving arms of the Father, His saving grace, and the true knowledge of His son Jesus Christ.
