Dodie Osteen was married to the love of her life John Osteen for over 44 years. Together they founded Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. She ministered side-by-side with her husband, the late John Osteen, since the humble beginnings of Lakewood Church in 1959. After a dramatic and miraculous healing from terminal cancer in 1981, God called Dodie into a special ministry of prayer. Through that ministry of compassion, she has touched the lives of millions of people both in Houston and around the world. Dodie shares her story and has collected some of her favourite healing scriptures in her popular book Healed of Cancer. She is also the author of the daily devotional Choosing Life One Day at a Time. Dodie continues to serve at Lakewood Church and shares her testimony of faith and healing at the Night of Hope events held across United States.
Dodie's five children all serve in ministry and she has nineteen precious grandchildren. To learn more about Dodie Osteen and Lakewood Church please visit www.lakewood.cc.
