My BIO! Gigi Devine Murfitt writes and speaks about many different topics. Raised in a single parent home with nine siblings, her life has been dotted with stories of courage and hope.
Although she was raised in a church going family, Gigi’s love for Jesus grew deeper after the birth of her son Gabriel. The life stories she shares are inspirational and motivating.
Writing down the events of her life has been her passion while keeping a journal for over 35 years. She encourages her audience to record their lives in a journal.
She is currently writing a book titled Stones of Remembrance. It is the story of Gigi’s triumph through some very difficult times. The book also tells the story of raising Gabriel, Gigi’s youngest son, who was born with severe congenital birth defects affecting his arms and legs. With his three-inch arms, he reached into heaven and found hope. He handed that hope to his family and their life has never been the same.
A lover of God’s Word, Gigi has facilitated Bible study for many years. She has been a speaker at retreats, community meetings and teas. She enjoys mentoring women in their walk of faith. Her love for people is evident in her caring nature and smile.
