About Wendi Rees
Wendi Rees and her husband Jim, have lived in Tyler since 2003 and they have 4 children (2 natural born and 2 adopted) and have fostered 2 additional children.
Wendi was blessed to run a successful mortgage business until 2007 when she decided to home school her children. Four years later, God brought the first of two adoptions into her life, and the second adoption just 19 months later.
Wendi is a public speaker at youth camps, women’s conferences and ladies’ retreats and ministers on the subject of sexual abuse. She is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse at the hand of her father, a Baptist preacher, and during a very dark time in her life she found healing through her Savior, Jesus Christ.
Her desire is to help see healing and restoration in the lives of other young people and to be a vessel through which many families experience the miracle of adoption.
