Hello, I am so glad you stopped by.

My name is Lori Merrill. I am the team leader of the Keepers Ministry. I, along with the Keepers Ministry team, have launched this site so that we could better serve the women that desire to live out the priorities that God has given us in His Word. Please grab a cup of tea and browse our site so you can learn about this exciting ministry. In the process, we pray you will be encouraged and challenged to be all that God has called you to be.
