Arizona native, Heather Ferroni is a Certified Christian Transformational Life Coach and founder of Raised to Life Ministries.

….In Redevelopment…

  Dearest friends, prayer warriors and valued supporters of Raised to Life… You may have noticed the inactivity on this page and wondering what has happened. At this time, the Lord is taking me through the phase of restriction as I am being rooted and Raised to Life is being redeveloped. I have been receiving BIG vision for this ministry and it’s far beyond myself. It’s so exciting! There will be a major relaunch coming soon and I hope that you will hang with me until then. I appreciate your prayers and support as I am working tirelessly behind the scenes trying to capture the vision, mission and develop the root system needed to sustain an abundance of fruit that will be produced (and reproduced) through this ministry. Come hang with me on Instagram Facebook and YouTube until then and let’s connect!   If you or someone you know is passionately desiring a place and space to exercise your God-given gifts and talents by way of creative arts such as web design, media production, video editing, social media management, blogging, coaching, speaking, etc. and would like more information on opportunities to align with Raised to Life, please reach out and myself or someone from the RTL team would love to connect with you!   Should you feel led to partner with Raised to Life and would like to sow a financial seed of blessing for upcoming projects and equipment purchases, we honorably accept your donations here.

Praying with Shameless Audacity

Take it from me, the result of your blessing is directly related to the posture of your heart in prayer. While there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to pray, I believe that the way we approach God in prayer can have a direct result in the outcome of our prayers. Jesus teaches how we should approach Him in prayer- with SHAMELESS AUDACITY, incessantly (1 Thessalonians 5:17), humbly, not bound by pride or fear but just straight up. God has an unlimited supply of everything, He wishes to lavish us, if we ask….Let’s look at Luke 11:8  I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need. We can also take a lesson from Joshua in the story of his prayer to make the sun stand still. (Joshua 10:13) For more on this, I encourage you to pick up the book, Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick. It’s an INCREDIBLE resource that will challenge you to enhance your prayer life and will inspire a deeper faith in God’s miraculous and limitless power!   If Wisdom is What You Seek: James 1:6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. This passage affirms that God generously supplies wisdom when we don’t know what to do, when we’re under trial or temptation, or just tangled in our heads….He doesn’t want us to be double-minded or like... read more

Deliverance is Not the Same as Freedom

I recently posted this on my Instagram. Have you connected with me on there yet?! Let connect! @RaisedtoLifeHeather Hmm….now that’s a point to ponder eh? Put another way, Jesus offers deliverance, but freedom is our choice. What does that mean? Say you’ve been victim to abuse…our gracious God may have delivered you from that (you’re no longer being abused) but the scars and pain, bitterness and anger still has you bound. Therefore, you’re delivered but not yet free. Say you’ve been delivered from a destructive and dysfunctional relationship that was against Gods will- but if you’re holding on to the “should haves, could haves, would haves” or playing the blame-game or unable to move on with a clean heart and fresh perspective, then you’re delivered but not free. Deliverance is by God’s GRACE, FREEDOM is by your CHOICE. How can you find freedom from your deliverance? Approach the throne with GRATITUDE….lay the pain at the foot of the cross and trust that God has a purpose for your pain but that you no longer choose to live with it. Some people choose to use their pain of the past as if it’s as an identification badge. You don’t know who you are without carrying that pain, that failure, that mistake, that thing that happened to you years ago….but God wants to give you a NEW identity, separate from who you were. Clean. New. Fresh. FREE. Declare freedom from your circumstance today! Break the chains that bind you. You’ve been in bondage LONG ENOUGH!!! Put on your NEW identity and walk confidently in alignment with the plans He has created... read more

A Call from My Dad

I was so blessed to have received a call from my dad this morning!  He lives in Jackson, Wyoming and with the craziness of life, we don’t connect all that often. Usually when we do, he’s in transit and I’m normally at work. Our talks are typically a quick 10-minute run down on the current status of life and is normally interrupted by the signal disconnection from him traveling through the Rocky Mountains. Today was no different, but it was a quality talk. I shared with him how I had lost my job 2 weeks ago but that God is faithful and has connected me with a previous co-worker from years ago that has opened a door of opportunity that I’m excited to pursue. I shared with him how I feel like I’m in a really healthy place in life: enrolled in Hillsong Ministry School, connected with an amazing church body at City of Grace, and have a wonderfully tight-knit circle of friends that love, support and encourage me. I spoke of how blessed I feel that although I’m not exactly where I want to be or where I’d thought I’d be at age 29 (single, childless and temporarily staying with family), that I’m thankful that I’m not where I used to be (entangled in a dysfunctional relationship, connected with toxic friends, full of anxiety and depression, etc.) I told him how I’d uncovered the faith journey of lessons learned through my last dysfunctional relationship on this blog and how I’ve been delivered and freed of all that pain, anxiety, insecurity, and hopelessness. I admitted, “I wasn’t the Heather... read more

Need to be NEEDED -vs- Want to be WANTED

I confess, I have a track record of dysfunctional relationships! By no means would I consider myself a relationship expert, but I can say- the lessons I’ve learned through my mistakes and my passion for drawing into the heart of God to learn how HE would have relationships qualifies me to speak on the subject!      The Need to be Needed: I, by nature, am a nurturer, a helper, a cheerleader. I invest myself fully and wholly into ones I care about. Their dreams become my dreams. Their goals become my goals. Although these are great qualities, I realize now that I had a tendency to get entangled in relationships where the other person didn’t have enough drive or ambition {or faith} of their own to propel themselves forward. I poured into them and they clung onto me like an energy vampire and sucked every ounce of generosity I offered. Sadly, it seemed they still didn’t move forward and grow. Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried or how deeply I loved them, I was left empty. BUT….I’M NOT A VICTIM. I had motives of my own I was using them to fulfill. I allowed my self worth to be dictated by people who didn’t have self worth of their own! I allowed myself to be used by people that I felt “needed” me. I was looking for someone to fill my cup; make me feel whole. I was a perfect match for the broken because I needed to feel needed. I don’t ever want to feel that way again. I don’t ever want to feel like I “need” to... read more

Are Dreams From God?

Have you ever wondered if your dreams are from God?  I recently had a friend share a dream with me that she felt was from God. Then naturally she questioned it and wondered if it were her own psyche (soul) and desires (flesh) that conjured up this dream because it happened to be in alignment with her deepest desire. As I draw in closer to God and study His Word and understand His majesty and sovereignty, I am a firm believer that dreams and visions are in fact a powerful communication method between God and us. Sometimes dreams are literal, sometimes they are symbolic and we know this when we study the scriptures.   Every time dreams are mentioned in scripture, they’re always a message from God. Not one time are we given an example of a dream that is NOT from God. So then, why do we question our dreams or feel like they’re completely unrelated to God communicating to us? In my Hillsong Ministry School class the other night, we really dove into hearing the voice of God. Isn’t it amazing to embrace the reality that our spirit is naturally calibrated to hear the voice of God?  Jesus spoke of this in the parable of the sheep and the shepherd and here are some points we can extract from this parable (John 10:1-18): We are the sheep, He is the shepherd. He calls us by name. (He knows us) He is our provider and protector- who laid down His life to give us eternal life. We can trust Him to keep us from harm. He is with... read more
