Ginger Millermon is a gifted songwriter, recording artist, author, women's speaker, and worship leader ministering in churches, women's conferences, family conferences, and pro-life events. She has had multiple national Inspirational "Top 10" singles and has released seven albums. Ginger's testimony has been chronicled in her book, "Grace Thus Far," and has been featured on multiple television and radio shows including appearances on 'Focus on the Family.' She recently released her second book titled “Everything We Need: His Strength for our Journey.
Ginger was just a young girl when she accepted Jesus Christ to be her personal Savior. God was at work in her heart at a very early age and by the time she was in high school, Ginger knew that she wanted to serve God with her life. She met her husband, Joel, at Calvary University in Kansas City, MO, where they both graduated. The Millermons served in youth ministry for several years before the Lord began to give them a new direction.
Ginger says "I started composing music years ago but it wasn’t until God took our family through extremely hard times that I began to really write from my heart and see my music as a tool to minister to the needs of others. I want to bring hope and encouragement by expressing through testimony and music how God has touched and healed my heart."
Only a few years into their marriage, the Millermons had twin boys, Brennan and Jarrott. They were premature and Jarrott spent more than a year in the hospital and his first few years of life on a ventilator. Nearly all of Jarrott’s doctors gave up on him, saying he had no hope of survival. Between the hours spent caring for Jarrott, juggling the needs of Brennan, and their eighteen-month-old daughter, McKenzie, the Millermons often felt at the end of their rope.
Ginger continues, "Trusting God suddenly became more than a cliché --it became the only way for us to survive. I am reminded every day when I look at Jarrott, how faithful God is to us. I will never forget doctors from Johns Hopkins University shaking their heads in amazement and saying, “There’s no way this child should be alive today."
In more recent years, Ginger was diagnosed with a rare vascular syndrome and spent many months being mostly home-bound and extremely sick. After appointments, tests, and consults to Mayo Clinic and other hospitals and specialists, Ginger underwent a major surgery that only a few of her physicians thought would heal her. It was a season of intense suffering and uncertainty, and a time for her to truly put into practice the principles of trials and suffering that she had been teaching to women for years.
Through her contemplative music, testimony, and conferences Ginger shares the miraculous story of not only her and her son’s remarkable medical journeys, but also the changes and work God has done in their family through these trials. She has unforgettable messages for today’s culture and her soul-stirring music will inspire hearts and minds of all ages.
The goal of Ginger's ministry and Anothen Music is really two-fold: "It is our prayer that everyone who hears our testimony or is at one of my conferences or events will be encouraged and find hope in their walk with God." But the message is not only for the believer. "We want to invite anyone who has never received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior to commit their lives to Him. This is what we pray will be accomplished at every event.”
Ginger and Joel have been married for 27 years and reside in the sand hills of Central Kansas.
