Annie carries compassion for others who experienced being marginalized—-pushed aside, disregarded or dismissed. She knew the sting of marginalization and wanted to help others find joy, healing and freedom too. She founded Daffodils From Heaven, Inc., as a 501c(3) non-profit organization to help the marginalized and to bring awareness about marginalization.
Annie’s career outside of ministry ranged from air traffic control to inspections; her undergrad was in marketing and her most recent certificate has been in inner healing and soul care. She particularly enjoys house-to-house visits to invest her heart into people who seldom, if ever, have love delivered to their door---particularly the Roma of Medgidia, Romania.
Our vision is all marginalized people receiving and living out the truth
that they are loved, valued and significant.
Daffodils From Heaven will reach the marginalized by delivering Christ’s affection,
imparting God’s truth and inspiring action in response.
Daffodils From Heaven will also raise awareness about marginalization
and provide resources to overcome its impact.
Living out the mission of Daffodils From Heaven is fun and fulfilling!
We deliver Christ’s affection and compassion by meeting people where they are, literally and figuratively. That is often going house-to-house visiting people, getting to know them, praying with them and building relationships. Trust takes time. We visit the marginalized in orphanages, prisons, hospitals, homes, on the streets---wherever they are.
Often we meet basic needs like provide food for the hungry and water for the thirsty. We also help people learn life skills and have creative activities such as mural painting. We may just go hold and pray over abandoned children at the hospital. Sometimes we buy medications, purchase school supplies or provide clothing. But all the time, we provide Christian outreach by encouraging people, praying for them and sharing God's truth about them. Often people simply need to be loved and heard.
We impart God’s truth by first, living it out. That means being authentic, sharing life experiences and sharing what God has done in our lives. It means sharing wisdom too, and explaining more about God in practical ways.
Our resources help raise awareness of and help people overcome marginalization. The Two Minute Truth About You mini-video series give insight into how to overcome lies we believe with by replacing it with God's truth.
Our children’s picture book, The Daffodil Diary,shares its comforting message of hope and acceptance to readers who feel or have felt left out, unheard, forgotten or invisible. It has also been released in Romanian (Jurnalul Narcisei and Spanish ( El diario de Flor) in Kindle and print on Amazon. The Daffodil Diary inspires kids and adults who are wondering if they are seen, heard or understood. It also shows how friendship with God and each other bridges the gaps from isolation. 100% of proceeds will provide free books to kids and some adults too that need this important message. When you buy a book or designate a donation for books, we give 'em away!

You are not fatherless, alone or an orphan. God chose you. When you say YES to Him, you are adopted into His family.
You are not just taking up space in this world, wandering about aimlessly. God has plans for you, plans of hope and a future. Live intentionally and make each moment matter.
Being authentic means being vulnerable and living a life of integrity. Living in truth brings closer relationships with God and others---true intimacy.
You are known completely and loved unconditionally. Nobody can steal that from you. So there!
Although you may feel unnoticed or invisible, you are seen and heard! God has His eye on you and it makes Him happy just to see you. He hears your heart and is listening closely. In fact, He is thinking of you right now.
