Cheree Hayes is a passionate friend and follower of Jesus Christ. He began capturing her undivided attention in high school where together they started a non-profit organization to inspire other youths in the northwest to commit wholeheartedly to Him. But as the good news spread rapidly so did a cancer that was hiding in her body. Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma threatened her life but after a year of intensive treatments God’s healing power got the last word. She went on to graduate from Multnomah Bible College where she met and married a handsome nerd she’s still wild about. Together they shepherd “Kingdom Garden,” a house church in Portland, and homeschool their three children: DeCelie, Charis and Isaiah. Cheree’s favorite free time is spent sharing the freedom of Christ through discipleship ministry, writing, teaching, prayer, friendship, family and hospitality.
