Dr. Jocelin Whitaker was born and raised in Orlando, Florida but happily calls the Fredericktown, Ohio area home. She and her husband, Marc, live in the country just minutes from their bulk food health food store which Jocelin also practices as a Naturopathic Doctor.
Jocelin accepted Yeshua as her personal Savior just before she turned seven, followed Him in baptism a few months later, and has sought to grow in her walk with Him daily. Her family came to a Torah life and understanding of our Hebrew Roots in late 2004/early 2005. Since then, she has continued to grow and seek to encourage others to grow with her!
She served on staff with Crown Financial Ministries which was founded in 1976 by Larry Burkett as the Money Map Coach Manager where her role included training, supervision, and support to over 10,000 financial coaches that served with Crown from 2007 to 2011. Upon leaving Crown, she began her ministry, Standing in YHVH’s Hand Ministries, desiring to meet a need for the Hebrew Roots movement in focusing on relationships, finances, and lifestyle. She is the founder of Purify – Retreats for Hebrew Roots Singles. She also holds many degrees in the natural health field – Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy, Doctor of Biblical Medicine, Certified Nutritional Counselor, Certified Chaplain of Holistic Approaches, Holistic Health Practitioner, and Certified Aromatherapist. She and her husband own and operate a bulk food, health food store called Whitaker’s Farm Market located in Bellville, Ohio.
Her heart and passion is to serve YHVH wholeheartedly whether it be through the written or spoken word and whether it be one on one or to groups. Her life verse has always been Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Her Hebraic verse is Psalm 49:3 “regardless of whether low or high, regardless of whether rich or poor!” To which she says, “And I can truly say that is who YHVH has called me to minister to!”
