Expressing life in word, photograph or art is my passion, using the prophetic gift to encourage, challenge and minister to hearts. Learning on the journey, loving God, husband of 32 years, and two grown sons. Creative Director, Co-Owner and Co-Founder of our family business, Nant Enterprises Ltd; Grace Creativity is my ministry and vehicle for teaching, mentoring and creating, within that. I am an active member of the School for Prophecy led by Mark Iles, mentored, and am a committed part of a renewed Church family, Winchester Vineyard. I am part of the Global Legacy family (of Bethel Church, Redding, California).
My heart is to encourage, equip and empower. I am currently writing my book ‘The Posture Principle’, the first book of my ‘Equipping Unexpected Warriors’ series of three books about our Posture, Identity and Freedom as called and chosen children of a living God.
Trained in the prophetic ministry and life, my additional experience of 17 years pastoring, leading and inspiring small groups, the youth, dance and creative worship, and services as a former lay member of the Anglican church while being a wife of a military officer of 31 years, has trained me to encourage others to uncover their own identity and faith and to stand firm as children of a living God.
Commendations for my book:
‘One of the most significant aspects of this book is that it is specifically and accurately aimed at the poor in spirit [Matthew 5:3]. It is wonderfully targeted at those the world has written off but who suddenly find themselves smelling and tasting Christ’s victory.’ Mark Iles, School for Prophecy (quote from his Foreword to the book).
‘This book links us to Scripture in laymen’s terms. Martina’s everyday usage and descriptive language gives an excitement that this is truly what the Word can do. Her quotes and description never leave you cold, because they come from a deep place and they describe where she is.’ Jane Coburn, All Saints Swanage – lay assistant and visitor.
Reviews for my prophetic art:
‘Martina painted a prophetic picture for me. It is beautiful and I loved the words she had to go with it. It hangs in my prayer room and is a constant reminder of what God thinks about me. I also ordered the cards with the same image. I love to write encouragements from God on them for people. Must be better than emailing or texting and also when people see the card it opens up some interesting conversation. Highly recommended.’ Paula Bass, Wokingham, UK.
‘Every time I look at the painting, it gives me hope and a sense of contentment envelopes me. My husband loves having it hanging in the lounge and gets joy from it too. The message that was inscribed resonates today as it did when I first saw the message and the two are intertwined. I left Martina with the smallest of briefs – paint me a dancing picture and let me know what God says. Well He spoke and she listened and it will speak to me for the rest of my life.’ Emma Shumsky, Reading, UK.
Comments on my photography:
‘Another fantastic picture. The lighting is so good and the colour fantastic.’ Paul Noble, Southampton, UK.
