Evangelist Patricia Blaino

Bowie, Maryland

Evangelist Patricia M. Blaino lost her husband, of 46 years, in 2012 with a spontaneous departure due to his ongoing diabetic condition. Her husband's death left a severe void, needless to say, but in turn birthed an extreme PEACE which cannot be explained. Before the death of her husband, her family circle had begun to diminish with close members leaving one or even two at a time. No one could explain this emptiness inside or even how to cope with the pain of it during the years of grieving and the reoccurring pain of grief.

Now she has come to the season in her life that she must seek answers. She states, "I must get the answers to the questions that I have been asking God to help me to understand. He told me it is in His Promises that He has made toward us." She came to understand that the answer was His peace in her life. Evangelist Blaino has learned that grief is vast. Not only does it encompass the loss of a loved one, but it could be someone grieving their health, finances, livelihood and just life itself. From her story, she has now learned to unveil the same peace of God that He has placed in His children.

Evangelist Blaino is a mother of four (4) wonderful adult children, grandmother of seven (7) and GG Ma of one (1). As a survivor of breast cancer, she finds herself serving at The Way of the Cross Church of Christ, International. She is a Missionary, Evangelist, Prayer Warrior, National Christian Education Assistant Director and Graduate of the Apostolic Christian College. "My purpose is to listen and help transition someone to His Abundant Life. As a From Grief to Gratitude Certified Coach, she works with individuals, families, and communities to help them find that same peace.
