about Darlena Fields
I’m a small-town girl from the big state of Texas. I’m proudly in love with my husband, Phillip Fields, of 25 years, who is absolutely amazing at all the hats he wears, and my favorite thing about him is his comforting, make-everything-better voice (to which everyone that has ever gone to him for help/advice would give a resounding, “Yes!”). Together we have 4 super cool kids -- 3 teenage daughters and our youngest is one energized boy. I would love to go on and on about all of them! Maybe over coffee?
I've spent the past 20 years as the CEO of the Fields Fam -- raising our 4 children, managing our home and finances, homeschooling at times, while juggling the administrative side of our non-profit corporation, Get Real Ministries. On the side, I have dabbled in some of my other favorite things -- fashion, art and party planning.
I am passionate about making something out of nothing, restoring things that are old or broken, and creating beauty from ashes…most of all broken souls and the ashes of people's pasts. And I find my greatest joy comes from bringing hope by sharing my story of overcoming hard things, divine encounters with God and breaking free of shame.
I connect to the reason I was born when I inspire others to live carefree and courageous lives of purpose, then coach them to write their own courageous stories of transformation. But, my heart burns to uncover the buried treasure inside people who know that there is more to them than what they have become. Then help them unlock a destiny so powerful that they would lay down their lives for it.
My Mt. Everest is this – the thing that makes my soul sing -- my divine romance with Jesus and my Heavenly Father’s passionate pursuit of me. Nothing brings more meaning and significance to my life than pondering and sharing our “love story” -- how my knight in shining armor has been so faithful to rescue me time and time again with HIS amazing love every time I thought I was about to lose my mind, sink in despair, or thought I could not go on another second. He's my hero…the reason I breathe!
