Rochelle Frazer-Foster | Speaker
In a moment of crisis, Rochelle was stirred by the words of Jeremiah, "When you seek with your whole heart, I will be found," and a desperate woman became a seeker. Rochelle’s journey challenged her to leave “comfortable Christianity” for passionate pursuit of healing from a failing heart and marriage. This journey stretched her faith, yet renewed it. It caused her to surrender to a greater love the people pleasing, performance, and wounded soul that hindered her connection to love. Her story is one of HOPE that leads everyday women to seek their place in God’s greater story. Rochelle believes that when Jesus said, "I came that you might have life," He meant it, and her passion will move you to COME ALIVE, and live from your original design!
Rochelle and her husband, Todd, are a picture of God’s redemption with their blended family of seven. They live in McComb, Mississippi where they Pastor a church called The Well where Rochelle leads their Freedom Ministry. Rochelle is also the author of Becoming Whole: For Such A Time As This, The Sweeteas, and He Gave Me Pearls.
