Cheryl Lutz is a speaker, lay counselor, teacher, and writer. With a background in early childhood education, women’s ministry, and Christian counseling, she is a well-rounded communicator. She enjoys presenting keynotes or workshops on spiritual warfare, spiritual gifts, forgiveness and restoration, anger and anxiety, physical and mental affliction, and shepherding children.
Her interest in spiritual warfare developed as a result of her personal experience with demonic oppression against her and her family while they were serving in full-time Christian service. This experience, combined with 25 years as a pastor’s wife, mother of four, and Bible study teacher, gives her a unique perspective on spiritual warfare. It is Cheryl’s hope that by sharing her knowledge others will learn to live out the fact that our enemy is a defeated foe, and we are “more than conquerors through Him that loved us!”
While first earning her degree in Early Childhood Education at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, TX, she has gone on to earn an advanced diploma in Biblical Counseling from Light University Online. She is also a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, and founder of Securely Held, LLC, a speaking, lay counseling, and writing ministry.
She utilizes the power of story to engage her audience, and she roots all her talks in passages of Scripture. Jesus is the master storyteller, and Cheryl believes ones find hope and healing through His blood and righteousness alone. She acknowledges that apart from the outpouring of His Holy Spirit she is powerless. Therefore, she bathes all of her Scripture-filled talks in prayer.
Cheryl is a recent transplant to the Tampa Bay Area of Florida after thirteen years in North Georgia. She lives with her favorite pastor who happens to be her husband and best friend, their youngest son Joey who is almost 17, and their sweet rescue dog Skipper. When not working, Cheryl likes to read, blog, swim, and ride bikes. You may reach Cheryl Lutz at firstname.lastname@example.org or http://www.securelyheld.com.
