From Death to Life
God birthed the B Encouraged Ministry from absolute devastation. In 2003, my 20 year old son Matthew died in an auto accident. For months I lay in my bed unable to function in complete brokenness. I had tried counseling, anti-depressants, church, grief support – everything. Nothing I did helped. In desperation I prayed, “God, you have to help me, you have to fix me, I’m totally worthless, even to myself.”
It was right there on my knees, in complete darkness that God met me. It was through His Word that the healing began. He gave me verses of encouragement, He reminded me of His promises for me. His Word became alive. He began to show me hurting people in need of uplifting. Daily He gave me a vision and a mission of encouraging others with His Word. Today I am still in awe of how He lovingly restored me and brought the B Encouraged Ministry to life.

What We Do
B Baskets are handmade with love for a special purpose. Each one is filled with individually hand written bible verses of encouragement. We pray over every golden mini basket, knowing God is able to change hearts and lives with His Word. Every basket bares the B Encouraged logo, and is specially wrapped in beautiful golden mesh bag with a gift tag.
The ministry recognized a need for encouragement among military men and women. A small, waterproof pouch was designed that would easily fit in a uniform pocket. The pouches caught on locally as well, because they were so convenient for both women and men to keep carry. The pouches, along with B Baskets have been delivered all across the United States, to the UK, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kenya, India and the world. Since their inception, over 10,000 baskets and pouches have been distributed
The B Encouraged luncheons are designed to invite special guests in need of encouragement. A guest speaker gives a message to about 20 women, and afterwards guests are presented with a B Basket. Since the first luncheon, over 1,000 women have attended and received B baskets.
Located within the B Encouraged house, our gift shop includes unique gifts: candles, diffusers, ladies accessories, and teaposey pots. Every gift includes a handwritten bible verse of encouragement as a gift tag. Proceeds from the gift shop benefit the ministry.
