“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


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.


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


The Temperament Therapy was 100% accurate and very helpful in determining my weaknesses and strengths. Thank you to Penny and her amazing ability to counsel through the anointing of God. SE


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 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
