Abba Ministries


In August 2017, my best friend and husband of 59 years suddenly went to be with the Lord. After being married more than ¾ of my life, I miss him terribly. The adjustment to being single has stretched me in more ways than I imagined. Yet God has been faithful to care for me just as His Word promised He would do.

Now God has opened doors for me to continue ministering. I’m teaching courses on Writing for Publication just as I’ve done for students from 25 countries over the past 27 years. See my new website:

The students here in north Texas will be drawn from not just my home church. The church has an extensive outreach to the community through classes in the arts, gardening, music, drama – and now writing – and reaches hundreds from the community at large. So I’m looking forward to training many to use the written word to reach beyond their direct influence.

I also continue to edit for others and write my own material. And I’m still available to speak to groups both locally and afar.

As you peruse this website you’ll learn much about what Pete and I did together in ministry. I’m delighted to be continuing to serve my Lord.


Pete and Bev Caruso are best known for their messages on Biblical principles, victorious Christian living, and relationship issues.

They share from their own rich relationship of over 50 years with humor and candor, bringing encouragement and healing to many.

The Carusos established and pastored two churches for a total of 35 years. In their first pastorate they established a Christian school where faculty and staff explored together the best ways to train young lives. During daily faculty meetings they developed a curriculum which became the popular handbook, Developing Godly Character in Children, now in its sixth edition. You can get a glimpse of the Carusos’ love for one another and their Lord by reading their books.

They have three children, all of whom have done short-term missionary work, as have several of their grandchildren. They have a growing number of great-grandchildren.

They live in north Texas, but are available to minister anywhere God leads.

God has honored the Carusos by taking them to 45 countries to ministers His Word. He’s given them a variety of ways to serve Him during their sunset years. They have no intention of slowing down until forced to. Sharing the Word is what powers their engines. Nothing brings them more joy than to see others applying God’s Word to their lives.
