About TerryAnn Porter
TerryAnn is a wife, mother and grandmother. Her own grandmother passed on the art of crochet, and like so many young girls, she learned to knit in 4H.
When teaching others she tells how she would cry to her mother and stomp her feet saying “I will never learn how to do this”. TerryAnn then shows off her latest project to prove she did, in fact, learn the process and encourages others to know they, too, will succeed.
She relates this to beginning a Bible Study. It seems so hard to many to make time to spend in the Word and even harder to understand. Just like learning to knit, crochet, or any other activity we pursue, it takes time, patience and a desire.
TerryAnn would never claim to be a professional knitter, but gladly shares what she has learned. The Lord has blessed her with a desire to witness her love for Him through knitting and crochet projects she skillfully ties into scriptures.
One day while untangling a mass of yarn TerryAnn started to think and journal about life’s tangled messes and how only God was able to guide her through. That led to other word pictures relating God’s province to knitting and crochet; and to her Knit and Crochet Bible Study books, devotions, blogs, and more.
TerryAnn has learned that even with suffering chronic back pain, God can still use her to His glory by knitting into the lives of others. “The blessing,” she says, “is that my knitting and crochet helps me cope with pain, helps to fight off the depression that often accompanies chronic conditions, and keeps me focused on Christ.”
Known to her friends as BearyAnn because of her love of teddy bears, she has started the Bear Witness Ministry, bearing witness of the sacrificial love, comfort and encouragement of Jesus Christ one teddy bear at a time. It is her goal to design her own line of knitted and crocheted bears to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
TerryAnn first introduced the Knit and Crochet Bible Study to her church in 2007 where it was welcomed and enjoyed for several years.
Recently, TerryAnn started working as a Women’s Life Coach where she helps women from all walks of life move forward from where they are now, to where they and God desire her to be.
