Anna Marie Sheffield

Nate & Kelly Troia - Kelly Danica Troia is the founder of Heart to Heart (H2H) Personal Prayer Ministries. Birthed from a place of sheer desperation, Kelly received this revelation from Jesus Christ seconds before she planned to take her life. From His heart to hers, Jesus answered her and lead her through what has now become the equipping and empowering prayer ministry of H2H, to be shared, taught, and imparted to others.


Through this prayer revelation, Jesus deeply affected her husband Nate, setting him free from intense anger and the effects of childhood sexual abuse. Through Kelly and Nate’s open and transparent testimonies, people are receiving hope and answers where none seemed to be found.


As Kelly ministers and teaches Heart to Heart Personal Prayer Ministry, she imparts the truth that Jesus is everything and the cross settles it. Her ability to position others in a place of non-negotiable victory is changing hearts in the worldwide church.


Nate and Kelly have been married for 22 years and together they have five children and three grandchildren. After all but their youngest were grown, the Troias lived as missionaries on the foreign and domestic mission fields, but are happy to now call Texas home.  Nate and Kelly enjoy traveling, ministering and serving together. They are also active in their local church community, including serving at Christ Healing Center in San Antonio, Texas.
