April (Osteen) Simons, Pastor Joel Osteen’s dynamic sister, spoke at a two day Brave Women’s Conference last weekend at Church on the Rise in Westlake. She also gave her encouraging message to the congregation at both Sunday services.
April is an “Encourager.” In a world filled with negativity and hopelessness, she brings an inspiring message of hope and life that helps people deal with the demands and challenges of everyday living.
She is the proud mom of five kids, Christiana, Garrison, Savannah, Elliana and Arriella. They love the Lord and bring joy to her life. She also has her first grandchild, Penelope.
April travels and speaks for a living, but first on her list is family. She says, “Family, to me, is everything. I love the Mother Teresa quote, “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” That’s what I strive for every single day. My most important mission field is my family.”
April spoke an encouraging word to everyone with quotes like “The enemy doesn’t determine your destiny, God does” and “Your mistakes are no surprise to God. Keep going. He has a wonderful future in store for you.”
April lives by her faith in Jesus and her love of the Bible, “A life giving word of encouragement can do wonders to restore joy to the heart,” – Proverbs 12:25
