“Although we live in prophetic times 'when men will not put up with sound doctrine,' my good friend Nancy Leigh courageously and tirelessly upholds timeless truths from the Word of God. Rowing upstream against the tide of culture, Revive Our Hearts provides a wide wake in which we can find safe, trustworthy teaching and the confidence of God's favor. I heartily commend the ministry of Revive Our Hearts, as well as the fine character of my friend, Nancy Leigh.” - Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

Screen Shot 2019-02-09 at 11.35.21 AM.png

“The ministry of Revive Our Hearts has impacted my life in immeasurable ways. As a member of Generation X, I grew up without ever hearing the message of biblical womanhood in church. God used Nancy and the ROH team to teach me His plan for my marriage, mothering, and vision of ministry. I don't know any other organization that so consistently connects biblical truth with practical application while empowering women to live like God created them to. Thank you ROH!” - Erin Davis, Graffiti Ministries
