Samia has consecrated her life to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. This was also the beginning
of Samia’s own inner-healing journey and prayer ministry that led her to become a messenger
and an instrument of God’s healing love to His children.
Professionally, Samia worked
as a lawyer for over ten years. However, in her personal life, she spent extensive
time in the inner-healing and evangelization ministries over the past ten years.
She aggressively pursued her own inner-healing which allowed her later to minister
to others on their own healing journeys - especially after having been thoroughly
trained in both basic and advanced courses in Francis McNutt's Christian School of
Healing Prayer and also Theophostic Prayer Ministry as well as other Catholic healing
In June 2006, Samia felt a strong desire in her heart to write
her first autobiographical book, The Bridge between the East and West: A Journey
to Truth through His Love. While in deep prayer, the Lord Jesus confirmed to Samia
that writing this book was an important part of her life’s mission as it would bring
the Lord closer to the hearts of many who would experience His healing love while reading
about her life’s journey. The Lord Jesus instructed Samia that it would only take
her 30 days to write the book if she lived a sacramental life centered on the Eucharist,
deep prayer and fasting throughout that period. Samia began writing the book on July
17, 2007 and the book was completed on August 15, 2007, exactly 30 days later.
July 2008, Samia was invited to Twin Falls, Idaho, to do missionary work at St. Edward’s
Catholic Parish until May 2009. Samia set aside her career as an attorney to follow
God’s Will in her life by serving Him on a full-time basis to bring His healing love
and presence to His hurting children. In June 2009, Samia returned to Sacramento,
California to continue her ministry. Through the generosity of Immaculate Conception
Parish in Sacramento, our Lord Jesus has provided her with an office space to provide
for her inner-healing prayer ministry. In addition, Samia travels nationally and
internationally to give her testimony and speak on various topics related to the
Catholic faith and inner-healing.

way. Our Blessed Mother Mary led her on her path to living a sacramental life centered
