Garfield business owner to speak about learning to trust God
Angie Heidelberger left her career behind in January 2021 as an act of faith.
A Garfield business owner will speak about how a "still, small voice" guided her through the loss of her daughter, a deployment, an unsuccessful adoption and other tests at The Unity Foundation's Faith @ Work Lunch on Friday, Jan. 21, at the Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria, from noon to 1 p.m.
Angie Heidelberger's talk, titled “My Sheep Know My Voice & They Follow Me,” will describe what it was like to receive a clear call “to go” with no answer of “what next”
"He showed her what it meant to receive love, be known and filled by Christ alone, and began to remove hidden idols from her heart," the Unity Foundation said. "He showed her what it means to trust him as her provider, healer, king and friend. Obedience can often feel like fire, but it produces a harvest if we do not give up."
After a successful career in the mortgage industry for over 12 years, Heidelberger quit her job in January 2021 as an act of faith, leaving behind all of the worldly measures of success she had ever known, the foundation said.
Heidelberger and her husband, Ryan, were both born in Alexandria and graduated together from Jefferson High School in 2004. Married for 14 years, they have three children at home, Autumn, Gabriel and Elaina; and one daughter in heaven, Hazel. They became owners of Winsupply of Alexandria in June 2020.
"Their passion is getting to know King Jesus individually and together and sharing His love however they can," the foundation said.
Tickets for the event cost $10 per person and can be purchased online or at the door. Those who plan to attend should RSVP in advance either at jan22fw.eventbrite.com or by emailing UnityFoundationAlex@gmail.com.
