Heidi Wysman Profile

Heidi Wysman

God encounter in 1993 changed everything for Heidi. “One encounter with the living God changed me. My eyes were no longer fixed on myself, or my lack; I had encountered the writer of the words I had read, He was real, and He was for me. I no longer had to squeeze life out of the words in a book, the Word was living, and I had met Him. I was in love, captivated, He would take my breath away. I would run to be alone with Him, run to worship Him, run to just be intimate with Him in the ‘secret place.’” Heidi, with her husband Mark and son Samuel live in Sydney, Australia.
