Hi, I’m Melissa, executive director of Resurrected Life.


This ministry began with a painful event: my dad’s heart attack.

After years of drinking, he died when I was 41. That’s when I realized the power of the childhood pain I’d carried for decades.

On the surface, my life seemed fine. But I would get super anxious out of nowhere. Deep down, I feared being abandoned by the people in my life. I started asking, “Why?” And I kept coming back to my childhood.

Thankfully, God used incredible people to lead me through the healing journey. They taught me how healing works, and how to teach it to others. 

Like me, you can’t change what happened in your past. But with God, you can change how you live now.

To help you do that, I’ve brought together a wonderful healing prayer team. Each of us has years of experience, so you can relax knowing you’re in safe company.

Count on my prayers for you!
God bless,
Melissa Foley
