As a writer and speaker, Sally Breedlove's passion is to help awaken in others the heart courage to discover the life changing mercy and love of God for themselves. She has worked alongside her husband Steve for the last 35 years, leading churches in the United States and Canada and ministering to leaders in other countries. Five children (including Redeemer's Ellen Hopkins), three of whom are married, five grandchildren, and the best of husbands have made her life rich. Sally serves on the national board of The Anglican Mission in the Americas and on the board of the Christian Foundation of the Triangle, an affiliate of the National Christian Foundation. She is the author of Choosing Rest (NavPress, 2002), one of the authors of The Shame Exchange:(NavPress, 2009), as well as a contributor to the Women of Faith Study Bible and two other books. Sally and her husband Steve live in Chapel Hill North Carolina, where Steve is Bishop for the Christ Our Hope Diocese of the Anglican Church of North America.  Sally teaches a weekly Bible Study in Chapel Hill and helps to lead a small group spiritual direction ministry, called JourneyMates, that draws participants from the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.


We'll get started Friday evening around 7:00PM. We'll hear from Sally Friday evening as well as Saturday morning and again early afternoon. Saturday afternoon we'll have some down time at the house before preparing a group dinner Saturday night. Sunday AM, we'll pack up and head back to Raleigh.
