Tell us about your name and family. Jerelyn – a name with purpose: Jerelyn is from the Hebrew language and means, “Living for God.” There’s an old song that states my philosophy of life. It goes like this, “We are the reason He gave His life and He is my reason to live.” From birth, I knew my purpose was to “live for God.”
Commitment to service was at the core of the Christian home where I was raised. My father never missed a Sunday preaching in over fifty years. My mother was equally dedicated to her husband, children, home and service. In my heart, there is nothing as special as Christian ministry.
I have been blessed with one son who proudly serves our country, a loving daughter-in-law, three beautiful grandchildren, and two adorable great-grandchildren.
What inspires you about ComfortCare? I have been inspired by ComfortCare’s ministry to women. What ministry do you know that touches the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of an unplanned pregnancy? ComfortCare does and that inspires me! The programs give help to the women that enter the doors and support to the family, friends, and guys that are also going through this experience.
Since you are new to ComfortCare, tell us what you are looking forward to doing in your position. In serving at ComfortCare, I will be part of a team that brings hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the discouraged, support to the one who feels all alone, light to the darkness, and shares God’s love that offers a brighter future.
Our fundraising events will promote the true, positive image of the agency to churches, the community, and individuals. When they embrace our mission and when they know of lives changed, support will be there: both financially and through volunteers.
All of this is to the glory of God, not to ourselves, but oh what fun to serve Him.
