Short Bio of Gini Crawford
Gini Crawford has been a Christian since 1971. She told God decades ago, "I won't teach." She also told God, "I can't write. No one will want to read what I have to say anyway." Needless to say, God got His way even without a fish having to shallow her.She has had the privilege of teaching and shepherding women in God's Word through church ministries and in the community for the last 40-some years. Since 2007, Gini has had a ministry called Because of God Ministries. The foundation of the ministry is a popular Christian website with free Bible resources (devotionals and studies) that are Biblical with a little humor thrown in. The website is: becauseofGod.com. (They can be downloaded for free.) Different organizations are using her teachings from Because of God Ministries. A ministry in India, New Hope India Ministries, translates her devotions into the language of the area for use in their women's ministries. Gini published her first book, The One True God - His Characteristics and Names, in 2020.
Gini received her Masters in Social Work - Counseling in 2004. Her area of expertise was sexual assault counseling. She stays active in her career field as a Board member of an adoption agency and volunteering in the community for various things.
Since 2009 Gini has managed a number of political campaigns in Southern Arizona. Because of running political campaigns, Gini took some time off writing for Because of God Ministries. God cleared her schedule in 2016, so she is back writing now.
Gini and her husband, Tom, have been married 45 years. They have 3 adult children, all married, and 7 terrific grandchildren. Gini's hobbies are - walking (and talking to God), tennis, bicycling and swimming (to burn those calories), and watching grandkids.
