Elizabeth Weatherby is known as the founder of Feed My Lambs, Inc., a sought-after Christian speaker, a faithful servant who holds Bible studies in homeless shelters, government housing homes, prisons and local businesses. Her love for Jesus and for people are both exciting and contagious.
Many churches, radio stations and newspapers have recognized her outstanding community service. She was awarded the Community Service Award in 1994 by Miss Georgia USA, was chosen as the TBS Citizen of the Week in 1995, and was nominated for the 1996 Jack Vaughn Humanitarian Award for her work in the Cobb County Georgia Community. Elizabeth and the ministry are often featured on Atlanta TV stations TBN and WATC Channel 57 to spread the word about Jesus Christ.
Elizabeth Weatherby shares her life testimony of how God called a housewife/mom/country music singer to be the founder of Feed My Lambs, Inc., a grass roots International Children’s Ministry that opens tuition-free Christian schools for children living in impoverished areas. Currently, Feed My Lambs, Inc. is operating 9 schools – four in Atlanta, Georgia; three in Liberia, Africa; and two in Mexico. Our largest school is for the homeless children in the inner city of Atlanta and serves infants to children five years old and is open year round.
Elizabeth tells her story of how God saved her and her household as He did in Acts 16:31. She shares how her husband was an alcoholic, and how her oldest son was on drugs and alcohol. Elizabeth went from singing country music in bars to ministering in song to the lost, hurting, and those in prison.
During those difficult years, God taught Elizabeth to pray the Answer (God’s Word) and not the problem over her life and family. Though Elizabeth’s husband of 32 years went to be with the Lord in 2005, they were partners in ministry for 17 years. Both her sons and their families are now serving God through full-time ministry. God is faithful!
Elizabeth is called to teach families how to pray God’s Word in faith not wavering from God’s promises. She ministers Hope and has God’s heart to share His faithfulness to hurting families with failing marriages, rebellious teens, physical illness, and financial problems.

Her passion for Feed My Lambs and the work we do with children, stems from a childhood of poverty and abuse in Marietta Place Housing Homes as the oldest of five children.

She has nine grandchildren and is happily married to her amazing husband, Scott.
