"Paint a portrait of life to be proud of that could not be sold for all the money on earth.   Hang that portrait in your mind and understand it's ever presence.  Reflect on every brush stroke that makes all the mountains and valleys and rivers and skies the most beautiful in the land.  Share your portrait with others, but beware of their brushes.  Select only those whose brush will add to the beauty and structure of your masterpiece." ~ Chris Ensor.

Perhaps you've listened as the voice of Pam Powers Moore filled a room with song, or been moved as she spoke to an audience so intent you could hear a pin drop.  Maybe you've been awestruck by the sincereity with which she speaks or the smile that radiates as she shares her faith, but whatever your experience, you will agree the calling of Pam Powers Moore is one of heartfelt conviction.

Pam was born and raised in the Hodgesville Community near Buckhannon, West Virginia and remembers fondly the roots of her childhood and the people of her church and community who influenced her growth.  She attended local schools and went on to obtain a degree in Business from Fairmont State College in Fairmont, West Virginia.  She is a 2004 Vision Award Winner of the Dale Carnegie Training Course, a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, American Association of Wedding Officiants, American Association of Professional Women and the West Virginia Professional Women's Club.  She also serves as Chaplain of the Central West Virginia Republican Women's organization.  Pam has distinguished herself with a successful career in Business Administration; as well as her accomplishments in many other areas, to include music, literary arts, and public speaking.  Pam is a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and together with her husband, has extended her heart and home to other children who she lovingly refers to as her "family by heart".


Even as a child Pam enjoyed singing.  She smiles as she remembers being asked to sing for Sunday morning services at the Heaston United Methodist Church in Hodgesville. She was always ready with a song, and it wasn't long before the Sunday School Superintendent, Mr. Bill Cutright, nicknamed her "Songbird".  Though nervous, she enjoyed being asked to sing, and as time will have it, the nervousness and somewhat timid nature of her youth have been replaced by the outgoing, charismatic person she has become.  But one thing that has not changed is Pam's dedication, and as she sings her heart out, her faith rings clear.

Pam began her call to ministry as a United Methodist Lay Speaker in 2002.  She was Ordained and Licensed as a Non-Denominational Christian Minister in May 2008, after which time she established Sweet Song Ministries and started her church. The special thing about Sweet Song Ministries is that it is not confined to the members of Pam's church. Through the calling and giftings of the Holy Spirit she extends the message of God's love to the community at large through her website, media productions, seminars nd conferences; and she also writes and officiates personalized wedding ceremonies.  As a speaker for Stonecroft Ministries, International she travels to many East Coast areas sharing her faith and inviting others into a personal relationship with Christ.  She has become known for her riveting personal testimony entitled "A Capsized Boat Makes It To Shore", and speaks to women's groups, marriage seminars and retreats at every opportunity.  Sweet Song Ministries continues to realize astounding growth as Pam ministers at churches, conferences, social and civic organizations throughout the East Coast and surrounding areas.  One of Pam's most humbling moments came when she was invited by Senator Donna Boley, to sing before the State Senate in Charleston, West Virginia and says it was a real privilege to share her faith in this manner.  Pam especially enjoys time spent with residents of Nursing Home and Assisted Living facilities and says "They are special people with a lot of love to give, and they bless me much more than I could ever possibly bless them".  Pam's unique style of speaking, along with her inspiring musical presentations have been described as "anointed, uplifting and spirit-filled".

In her spare time, Pam enjoys vacationing with her family at Hunting Island, SC and when asked the meaning behind the inscription "ISLNDGRL" on her license plate, she replied:

.

"I have always been aware of God's presence, but nowhere more than at the ocean.  When the waves crash upon the shore at high tide, I am reminded that no matter what is going on in my life, God is with me.  With His gentle whisper He speaks "Peace Be Still" and even my most intense fears turn to calm.  When the waves are still, it reminds me that God keeps His promises, and if we listen with our hearts, He will speak to us in that "still small voice" that is His alone.  When I look out into the distance and see the lighthouse beckoning the ships to safety, I know in my heart that Jesus is my own personal Lighthouse and when I feel lost, or am in a difficult situation, I am never alone because He has promised never to leave or forsake me".

.

Pam will be going into the studio to record her 4th CD this summer and hopes to have her newest book, "Riding on the Winds of God", completed later this year. 

.

Pam has an awesome appreciation for life and will be the first to tell you that when it's all said and done, God, family and love is really all there is.
