Kathy Gallagher co-founded Pure Life Ministries in 1986. She resigned her management position with Progressive Insurance in 1989 to serve fulltime as the CFO for Pure Life Ministries, a position she held until 2003.
For the last 20+ years, Kathy has ministered to wives of husbands who struggle with sexual sin, as well as women struggling in sin themselves. Her book, When His Secret Sin Breaks Your Heart: Letters to Hurting Wives, was written specifically to address the pain and devastation that wives face when dealing with their husband’s sin. She is also the co-author of, Create in Me a Pure Heart, Answers for Struggling Women.
Kathy shares her husband’s desire to impart a passion to live for God. Her speaking ministry is especially effective for women’s groups. Married women greatly appreciate the testimony she shares about how God called her to stand with her husband through the most painful ordeal of her life. When she speaks of God’s grace to sustain a person through trials, it is obvious that she is speaking from experience. Likewise, when she addresses the need for sexual purity, her words carry weight with those who struggle. Whatever the setting may be, the need for consecrated living always resonates within her messages.
