About Jeff & Charmé

My greatest passion is intentionally passing my faith in Christ down to the next generation, starting with our family. I’ve been married to Jeff since 1975. We are blessed with three adult children and their families. Our six grandchildren bring us the greatest joy. I served alongside of my husband in pastoral ministry for twenty years. We launched Covenant Heirs ministry after our first grandchild was born. Our mission is to encourage and help equip parents, grandparents, and others to intentionally live a life of faithfulness to God, with a family discipleship emphasis. Please contact us at covenantheirs@gmail.com if you are interested in learning more about us and our ministry. Holding His Hand blog (2016) is dedicated to my mom, Audrey Lewis, who learned to trust in Jesus during her battle with cancer. This blog testifies to God's amazing love and provision in our lives.
