"Oil of Gladness" is directed by Sister Liz Saenz. Sister Saenz has a heart for women who have had rough times in their lives. Her goal is to let them know that, beyond it all, they are valued as a person and loved by someone. She has vowed to gather items, such as toiletries and beauty aids, that these women might need from day to day. These women are often housed in homes, such as, House of Decision, in Cherry Valley, California. Many support homes, like these, are not provided with enough financial aid, via donations, to supply these women, as well as their children, with these simple daily necessities that are taken for granted. Liz has found favor in God and she, with the help of her family and local churches, like ours, donate those items to these lovely ladies, to provide them what they would otherwise not receive.
Liz Saenz is the founder of Oil of Gladness. She was a victim of domestic violence for 12 years. She has an incredible story of leaving a volatile marriage and starting life over with her 3 children. She shares her story of God’s faithfulness during difficult years as a single mom and the beauty of finding love again.
Married to a wonderful man now, they travel throughout Northern and Southern California telling her story of restoration and love. Oil of Gladness is a dream realized. Liz had a detailed dream where she sang at a concert and where attendees brought beauty products for women who had been domestic violence victims. She acted on faith, planned a concert and encouraged guests to donate beauty products for Christmas gifts. She continues to accept speaking engagements to share her story. With God’s help, she wants to seek out more women’s shelters and recovery homes to bless.
