WHAT WE DO
Oil of Gladness provides beauty products to women who have been victims of domestic violence, and/or drug and alcohol abuse in order to share a message of Christ’s love and worth.
Liz & David Saenz
Liz De La Cruz Saenz is the founder of Oil of Gladness. She was a victim of domestic violence for 12 years. She has an incredible story of leaving a volatile marriage and starting life over with her 3 children. She shares her story of God’s faithfulness during difficult years as a single mom and the beauty of finding love again.
Married to a wonderful man now, they travel throughout Northern and Southern California telling her story of restoration and love. Oil of Gladness is a dream realized. Liz had a detailed dream where she sang at a concert and where attendees brought beauty products for women who had been domestic violence victims. She acted on faith, planned a concert and encouraged guests to donate beauty products for Christmas gifts. She continues to accept speaking engagements to share her story. With God’s help, she wants to seek out more women’s shelters and recovery homes to bless.
Ministry of Helps
The Oil of Gladness Ministry holds various events throughout the year to come alongside local women’s homes to supply beauty products to women who have been victims of domestic violence, and/or drug and alcohol abuse in order to share a message of Christ’s love and worth.
"You are absolutely wonderful, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our girls are so blessed to have you in their lives. We are grateful Liz!
