Jenny-May Hudson grew up in Pretoria, South Africa, the third child of an Afrikaner father and a British mother. Her childhood was horribly marred by her domineering father, who beat her mother, showered blows and insults on his children, and micro-managed the household. His family went hungry while he dressed fashionably and lavished attention on his girlfriends. He would finally commit suicide. The years of pain would leave Jenny-May estranged from her mother. Yet a transformation was in store, as Jenny-May discovered the mercy and healing available in Christ. Today Jenny-May is whole and happy. She has made peace with her mother, and has come to terms with her past. She and her husband Elmore, and their three children, have relocated to Perth, Australia. Jenny-May has developed a considerable speaking ministry, and her journey from abuse and self-hatred to self-acceptance and joy has become a source of inspiration.
