Introducing Coleen Sykes Ray: Survivor, Author, Advocate.

Isaiah 40:31

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint (NIV).

Coleen Renee is the founder and executive director of Bags of Hope Stockton Foundation, a non-profit meeting the needs of any menstruating person with sanitary supplies, resources, and education. She felt empowered to start her ministry in response to her calling to express her gift of healing to reach into the lives of others. God has also called her to be an evangelist, where she thrives on educating families on health and wellness.

She is a multi-faceted leader, helping faith-based organizations establish health ministries, working as a program manager for another non-profit, and running her own small business in her community, Coleen’s Cupcakery. She has written and published two children’s books and published five journals. She is a wife of twenty-two years and a proud mother of three. She believes deeply in an individual’s power to overcome any obstacle in their life, and her passion is to inspire this belief in others to empower them to soar to new heights.

I highly recommend her writing. She is an inspirational woman of God. You can find her books at
