Rise Up & Live! MN Adult & Teen Challenge Women’s Luncheon

Hope Awakens Women’s Luncheon

April 16 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge for the Hope Awakens Women’s Luncheon, featuring Author Jill Citrowske and Emcee Pam Lundell!

Join us to empower Minnesota women struggling with addiction to Rise Up & Live through spiritual, physical, and emotional transformation!  You’ll be inspired by the personal stories of women who have done the seemingly impossible and broken the chains of chemical addictions.  Our guest speaker, author Jill Citrowske will also share her story of overcoming the odds.  Register now to reserve your seat at our luncheon on Tuesday, April 16 at The View at Minneapolis Event Center in Historic Downtown St. Anthony Main.

We have a need for gently used adult Christian fiction books to update our women’s library.  If you have some you’d like to donate, please bring them to the luncheon for drop-off!


Our Special Guests

Jill Citrowske
Published as J. Marie
Guest Speaker

Jill Citrowske, newly published under the name J. Marie, is the author of the inspirational debut novel FIND YOUR WAY HOME (March 2018 Amazon) and a second novel THE FORGOTTEN HOUSE (November 2018 Amazon).  After raising three children while also working in consumer products marketing and general management for over twenty years, Jill left the corporate world to better focus on managing various family businesses.  It was then, even though her days were filled with telephone calls, spreadsheets and financial statements, suddenly voices of characters and compelling stories of their lives became too much to ignore. So, she wrote it all down and hasn’t stopped writing ever since.

In addition to writing, in her spare time, Jill enjoys volunteering with various organizations, with special passions to help domestic abuse/sexual assault victims, people struggling with addiction and helping children develop healthy relationships. Jill also enjoys spending time with her husband and their family on their farm near Canby, MN.



Pam is a twenty-year Twin Cities radio veteran. After the sudden death of her husband John after a long battle with addiction in 2005, Pam was led to the Faith Radio Network. She moved to her current hosting duties on the 98.5 KTIS Morning Show in 2007. Pam was awarded “National Best Media Personalities/Music Format” from the National Religious Broadcasters in 2010.

Remarried in May, 2014, Pam speaks to the amazing ways in which God took care of her as a young widow. Read more…
