As a mom, it’s easy to feel stuck in the monotony of parenting. Joanne Kraft, Denise Glen, Erin Davis, Gloria Furman, and Leslie Leyland Fields offer perspective to help us view mothering in light of eternity.
Denise Glenn is a mother, grandmother, an author, popular speaker, and the founder of MotherWise. Together she and her husband, David, now serve as President and Vice President of Kardo Ministries, a non-profit international discipleship ministry. Denise began the MotherWise ministry in 1981 when she had three preschoolers.
From a prayer time with one other mom, this ministry had grown to include women from all across America and around the world. Denise has been featured on radio programs around the world, including, “Revive Our Hearts” with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, “FamilyLife Today” with Dennis Rainey, Josh McDowell’s national radio broadcast, Winning Walk radio and television programs, and the Family Enrichment Television series.
She has also made guest appearances on national radio programs from Seoul, Korea, to Nairobi, Kenya, and has been keynote speaker for conferences in Austria, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, China, Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, The Philippines, the Azores, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Kenya and Botswana. She is sought after both nationally and internationally as a speaker for women’s conferences, meetings, and retreats.
Denise has authored five Bible studies for women that include Wisdom for Mothers, Freedom for Mothers, Restore My Heart, Keeping the Secrets of Jesus, and her newest, Fan the Flame.
Using her own personal experiences ranging from infertility to three teenage daughters to married children and now grandchildren; Denise blends her warm personality with an ability to clearly define Biblical truths. Her entertaining speaking style and creative use of visual aids endears her to women and allows her to share personal stories to teach women about God’s Word.
Combining deep spiritual insight with the ability to relate practically to each woman in her audience, her written materials are in-depth Bible studies, composed in a way that Bible students of every level can enjoy learning and growing in Christ.
In the summer of 2003, Denise and David made an international move to Indonesia with David’s job as a geophysicist. Staying for two fruitful years, planting MotherWise and FatherWise, Indonesia continues to remain one of Kardo’s anchors to the nations in Southeast Asia. Following a two-year furlough in the USA, David and Denise were called again to another international move to Perth, Australia, where God opened doors of ministry opportunities not only in Australia, but also New Zealand. The Glenns now live in Houston, Texas.
The Glenn’s have a passion for sharing God’s Word and travel internationally while balancing their time with their first ministry, three beautiful married daughters and ten lovely grandchildren.
