About Ericka Lopez-Harris
Ericka Lopez-Harris has been serving in cross-cultural ministries since 1992. In 2010, she joined Oasis Rest International (formally known as Life Impact Ministries) with a desire to further the Gospel by strengthening global Workers. Ericka Lopez-Harris also facilitates grief workshops for ministry leaders primarily living cross culturally.

Her lamenting poem, "My Soul's Winter" received the “Author’s Pick” award and is published in "Poetry in Winter". She studied Psychology at California State University Long Beach. Her expansive learning of loss and life transitions occurred while living in 12 different countries. Most recently, she, her hubby and two active sons lived in Costa Rica for eight years. Currently living in Bend, Oregon, she enjoys walking near the Deschutes River in the summer and being fireside with a good biography in the winter. Ericka is also nearing the publishing phase of a resource for teens/young adults TCKs. "Remembering: A creative memory journal about a special person in your life." This journal will use art, story, poems, nature and songs to create a very personal and treasured collection of memories. Find more information about her work at OasisRest.org
