Hi, I'm cheryl

I’m very passionate to see more people equipped and mobilized to pray and see results like these. The Prayer Saturated Life is my attempt to mentor a generation in the kind of prayer that moves mountains and helps people live a life that they never dreamed possible.

I’ve seen God work in lives and churches in powerful ways. We’ve prayed for a girl in a mental hospital and seen her walk out healed and whole the very next morning. We’ve mentored couples in connecting with God through prayer and watched their marriages come back to life. We’ve prayed with the grandparents of a wayward granddaughter and have seen her come to faith in Jesus.

We’ve raised up prayer partners for leaders and seen their churches and businesses start to flourish where previously they were struggling. We’ve mobilized prayer for failing schools and seen academic scores go up and drug use and suicides go down.

A little about me


My Family

I’m married to Hal, the love of my life for 40 years. We have a beautiful daughter with a heart after God, a brilliant son-in-law using his gifts from the Lord in business, and three amazing grandchildren ages ten, five, and two. We enjoy spending time with them in San Francisco as often as we can.  

My History

I was born in Tennessee, the oldest of five children. I earned a master’s degree in journalism from North Texas State University, and I’ve worked as a public relations director, feature writer for the Associated Press, and high school teacher. I met Hal at a singles bible study in Dallas; we married, moved to Phoenix and launched BridgeBuilders International
