Geraldine Renee Walker
Geraldine Renee’ Walker was born in Los Angeles, California but has lived most of her life in Sacramento, California. She is a wife, a mother and a giver of love and inspiration to the World. At the ripe age of 50 years old, “Gerrie,” as she is called by her friends, family and now you, realized that her life was so much more than what she had originally thought it to be once she gave her soul to our Lord and Savior.
She became involved in the New Thought Movement in April of 2010, and has continued to embrace the teachings of the Heavenly Spirit as being a loving and forgiving God to all. She is an author of two books: Through Thine Eyes – Prayers and Meditations, and Through Thine Eyes – Spiritually Inspired Expressions; plus numerous book collaborations and published articles in national magazines.
As a spoken word artist she shares her words of love, faith, joy, forgiveness, inspiration and the Goodness of the Heavenly Spirit with audiences far and near; and by doing so she has inspired others to look deep within themselves for the answers to their questions and concerns as they manifest through the challenges and obstacles in their own lives.
Currently Gerrie has retired from the State of California after 37 years as a loyal public servant. Now she has a different calling and has began to pursue her vision of being a servant to our Lord and Savior in the form of Evangelism. As she has always said, “Blessed be to those who love the Lord our Savior, for they are the Champions of the World. May all that is good and right follow those blessed ones all the days of their lives.” Praise be to God, Amen and amen.
