Anne Costa is an ordinary wife and mother who lives an extraordinary life in Christ thanks to a list of life's second chances....
From her journey back to the Catholic Faith, through her experiences of deep loss of loved ones due to miscarriage, suicide, accident and incurable illness~ Anne offers hope and encouragement to others who are going through seasons of sorrow, confusion or trial.
Her life is a one-day-at-a-time journey of joy that was changed forever when in 2006 she survived a serious health crisis and severe depressive episode. The remarkable story of her recovery is a powerful testimony to the miracle and mystery of God's grace.
Now, Anne's mission is to assist others on their own journey of faith through her writing and motivational speaking. Anne is a licensed master social worker with 30 years of professional experience working with people from all walks of life.
As the founder of Veronica Ministries, a Catholic lay apostolate with a mission to promote, encourage and inspire Christ-centered action to bring about a culture of life, a civilization of love and a Catholic cultural renaissance, Anne relies on Mary as a model and follows the spirit of St. Veronica’s charism of courage and compassion in her life. CHARISMATA! Coaching for Abundant Life is the inspirational speaking ministry associated with this apostolate.
Anne combines a unique blend of spiritual truth, psychological insight and life experience to deliver messages that challange, affirm and inspire others to live lives of deep meaning and engagement centered on their relationship with Christ and the expression of their Catholic faith.
Anne Costa, a blessed, "broken" and beloved
Daughter of God
Veronica Ministries is the fruit of my own personal commitment to Jesus and Mary to bring hope and light into the world and fulfill my greatest joy… that is, to share Jesus and the Church He founded with others and offer encouragement as we step out together in compassionate love in His name.
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been or where you are going~ God’s heart is beating for YOU.
His love is never ending and you are important to Him!
Let’s “put our heads and hearts together” and learn of him so that we can be imprinted with His image and reach others with His LOVE!
