With a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Science in Education, Keturah pursued a career in the fields of social services, family literacy, and adult education. Her experience spans from working as an advocate in a domestic violence shelter to a family support worker and literacy instructor in the capital city of New Jersey to a teacher and tutoring entrepreneur serving teens/adults improving their basic skills after becoming unemployed, displaced, incarcerated, etc.
Over the years, her unique ministry of intersecting faith and healthy dating/marriage has allowed her to serve, speak, and facilitate at the Single, Saved, & Satisfied Conference (Virginia) and the New Jersey Ministers’ Wives + Widows Retreat.
In 2017 Keturah Ford saw a need in her New Jersey community: safe spaces for women to express themselves, heal, and grow amidst relationship crisis. Having experienced unhealthy relationship patterns in her past, she understood the danger that many were facing.
Taking a step of faith, she founded Healthy Relationships Network and retired from her teaching position in Adult Education and Workforce Development.
Soon after she pursued certifications in both Bible-Based Trauma Healing and the SYMBIS Assessment (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts) along with related training in Emotional Management and Grief & Loss Recovery. Keturah became extremely active with facilitating support groups, speaking at churches and colleges/universities, and volunteering her time to consult with women experiencing domestic violence.
Passionate about communicating the person of Jesus (as portrayed in the scriptures) and His ability to save, heal, and transform, Keturah continues to design and implement Bible-Based sessions and resources for women who’ve experienced life + relationship crisis at www.KeturahFord.com.
Two of Keturah’s greatest and most important roles are being a wife to Jason for the last 14 years and a mom to Jordyn, a “spunky” First Grader.
Keturah also enjoys connecting with other families in a weekly Bible Story Time at http://www.MommyhoodDeconstructed.com.
