Denise Engelbrecht

Motivational Speaker, Author, Teacher, Leader, Emotional Healing Coach

Denise is a motivational speaker, author, and Certified Living Waters Heart Healing Coach. She's also a mother of 7 and Mimi.


Denise's purpose and lifelong goals are to help rebuild families. Her passion comes from growing up in a dysfunctional home of abuse and trauma. She always longed for that close-knit family to call her own as she became an adult. However, as she became a wife and mother, she realized that the patterns of her upbringing followed her. Desperate to find a way to create the home environment she dreamed of as a child, she cried out to God for help. Little by little, God showed her an emotional healing process that led to a better life for herself and her family.


Denise and her husband, Mark, are dedicated to helping others break free from past adversity that keeps parents stuck. Mark and Denise beat the odds and established life patterns of renewal.  Together, they teach God-given life patterns in their 5 step approach to gain P.O.W.E.R. over your past to move forward in successful parenting.
