Welcome to Penny Haynes Life Patterns Ministry

Penny Haynes Life Patterns Ministry

Your healing starts here with counseling, courses, webinars, forums and groups.


This set of ebooks move you from living by your emotions to surrendered to God.

Courses To Help You Heal

Learn at your own pace from courses on depression, codependency, hopelessness and more. New courses are added monthly.

I know first hand how it feels to be lost in depression for years, trapped in my house with panic attacks, tormented by memories of past traumas, and prisoner of an eating disorder. I know what it is like to have a horrible marriage, to feel unloved and unwanted, and the shame of turning to another man for comfort. I know what it is like to want to please and live for God, but be unable to fulfill God’s call on my life because of hidden sin, guilt and shame. But I also know what it is like to be free. Now I help Christian women gain self-control over their emotions and actions so they can fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. Let me share my story with you.

Don't say another word until you read this ebook

You are killing yourself with your self-talk.  It's got to stop - NOW.  The ebook, Crazified & Out Of Control will reveal exactly how the enemy of your soul has been dragging you down by the thoughts he implants in you, and exactly what to do to counteract it.  Push yourself to read it - don't let the enemy talk you out of it, because it's the last thing he wants you to read.  He knows it will give you the power to turn what he whispers to you into words of freedom.

Yes, you ARE worth getting well

This is going to be the hardest part.  You will have to make a decision whether or not you are worth being healed.  You have believed so many devaluing things about yourself by now, you have figured, "Why bother?  I'm not worth it."  But you are.  The people that depend upon you need you healed and whole.  You have a right to enjoy life, to smile, to feel joy and contentment and peace.  But you are the only one who can do this for you - no one else.  So, are you worth it?

It's time to ask for help

Be honest, if you could have fixed yourself by now, you would have.   But you haven't.  You are too deep into it at this moment.  You can't see things clearly and don't know what to do.  But I do.

  • I offer FIVE (5) hours of counseling a month for  less than $20 per week.  (1 hour private, 4 hours large group)
  • Plus you get access to me online via forums and messaging, so whenever you are hurting, you can contact me.

It was God’s providence that guided me to ”happen” to find Penny. During our first session, Penny showed me, and I began to realize, that God made me the way I am for a purpose and that I wasn’t this broken and defective failure I believed I was. I had allowed the enemy to steal many things and began believing all his lies. After that first session, I had a hope that I hadn’t felt in a long time. Penny has truly been a Godsend. JP

I enjoyed my time of learning about myself in a new way that God made me unique and special instead of flawed to be fixed. My anxiety level dramatically dropped after one session. SH

“I LOVE Crazified!  Reading this morning, this is pure God stuff distilled into a great readable form. I am thinking of so many friends and folks who need to read this! Love how God is using you.  And it is really helping me, I am so finding myself in that trap of falling back to eating habits over and over, less guilt and obsession but want to keep doing better and add the spinning plate of exercise…self control via the Holy Spirit… to stop adding so much onto my day that I can’t do the things I must do for my own health.” SB

This mini book is so powerful! It reminded me why i continue to give into my fears and fall into the same negative patterns again and again. It also gave me hope that i can see lasting change and fruit in my life, with practical tools to get me there. The scriptures at the end are particularly helpful! MW

Crazified was all me! I was an obsessive worrier. I did not know how to get off my cycle. The wisdom in scripture, and discovering “my lie” that I believed helped me to change the way I thought. Her ABC’s and But God Says are great also.  SH

The Temperament Analysis Profile has made a big difference in my relationship with my mother. We both learned about each other’s temperament, and found out things we didn’t know about each other. We never knew that we both want to be hugged, because neither of us would let the other person know, so our needs were not being met. Now we are not hesitant to offer each other a hug, knowing that it will be received gratefully. It has helped both of us to feel more loved. JG

I was separated from my husband after finding out about his infidelity. It was my 2nd marriage with infidelity and I was devastated but I very much loved Christ and had a strong desire to please my Lord. Out of all the help I had received, endless conversations with friends, help from seasoned couples at my church, it was Penny Haynes that God used in a mighty way. In one session, she helped me to see that I was stuck in Gethsemane and needed to leave there and make my journey to the cross, to share in my Lord’s suffering of betrayal and to move into forgiveness by dying on the cross to unforgiveness. This was so profound of a concept in my journey and came at the perfect place in time. I had been praying for clarity and she was able to help move my heart and my feet in the right direction… Into the arms of my sweet and gracious Lord. PS

“I started attending a ladies’ step study through Celebrate Recovery that Penny was facilitating and went on to do another study with her as the facilitator and eventually my sponsor. From day one, she helped create an atmosphere of unconditional love and acceptance for me and every lady attending. I shared things I hadn’t shared before, and found myself able by God’s grace and the help of Penny and the other ladies in the group to obey God in several key areas of my life. As the weeks went on, I got more and more excited about attending the group and found myself less depressed and no longer isolating at home. I got much closer to God and developed several friendships.

Penny is extremely gifted, intuitive and loving. She offered such brilliant insights to me and others as I witnessed her in groups. She clearly loves people, loves what she does and is willing to lay her life down for the people in her life. She remains humble by always working on herself and being transparent about her continued spiritual and emotional growth and flaws. I never felt I was in my healing/recovery journey alone or that Penny was just a leader looking down from above.

Since my time with Penny in those groups I have been able to put into practice many of the things Penny taught me, with God’s help, and have continued to stay for the most part on the path of recovery.”  MW

I’ve known Penny since 1998, when I first attended World Harvest Church where she was involved in ministry. I attended several groups that she has led; i.e., Singles Ministry, Celebrate Recovery Small Group, Large Group, one on one bible study, and one on one ministry.

Penny is always available, she will fit you into her schedule within a day or two, no questions asked.  She listens to you and always counsels you based on the Holy Spirit’s leading and the Word of God.  Penny has spoken things into my life that was confirmation of what the spirit had already revealed to me. I completely trust her.    She always did this from the heart and not for any monetary gain. I could go to her with things most any Counselor, Christian or otherwise, would be shocked about and she always just led right into the conversation as if it were all normal… that is important when you feel you are broken and unworthy. I can definitely testify that counsel from her,  on numerous occasions,  has led to much-translated positivity in my life.” SE

Penny understands me, both as a client and as a person.  I feel comfortable expressing myself with her, and felt an immediate relief from many of the issues I brought to her.  I felt heard and validated.  LT

Reading Penny Haynes' writings on codependency and ungodly responses to pain has helped me to go deeper in my healing from codependency and from verbal, financial and abandonment abuse.  It's one thing to do a surface study of these issues, and another to dig deep and look for what is the source of pain, and figure out how to let God bring healing in.

When I heard her speak at our Celebrate Recovery, I knew instantly that we were talking about healing on a much deeper level.  I get so many paradigm shifts when I read her writing or hear her speak -- it is just truth being brought to the light.

I urge anyone who is able to read her blogs and website to dig in and do the work. And if you are blessed to live close enough or skype with her in a study, you will not be disappointed.  It hurts, but it hurts good. SB

Penny truly has a gift to understand my God-given personality and help me where I struggle. She encourages me to continue in the healing process that God wants for my personal healing and freedom. She assessed my temperament right away and I have already realized why I have the patterns I do.  Now there is a reason to change the behaviors that have been holding me captive so long. CM
