Cherie L. Zack | co-founder
Cherie Zack has been married to Bill for nineteen years now and they are looking forward to reaching old age together. They have four children: a daughter, Samantha, who is 24, twin boys, Bobby and Troy, who are 21, and their youngest, James, who is 17. Her life is full and God has used it to teach her many lessons. The family as a whole has been given the greatest gift of all, the understanding of unconditional love through Samantha who was born with cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. No matter how many mistakes this family makes with Samantha, she loves them with the purest heart and has taught them that love is new every morning. God has definitely used Sam to strengthen the bonds of her family.
Cherie knows what it’s like to be an imperfect wife and is well aware that her past would be her future if it had not been for God’s intervention in her life. Four years into their marriage Bill asked for a divorce. God asked her a powerful question, “will you run or will you stay and fight?” Cherie chose to stay and fight and together with God beside her, learned how to win her marriage back. Desiring the same freedom for others, Cherie’s passion is to challenge and inspire other wives to love their husbands the way God has designed them to. She is very candid about her mistakes and holds nothing back as she speaks to women’s groups here and overseas. You can usually catch Cherie with a cup of hot tea in her hands and Samantha by her side.
As well as being the co-founder of The Imperfect Wives, in 2010 she was appointed Director of the South Carolina District Council Women’s Ministry Department for the Assemblies of God where she serves more than 100 pastors and women’s ministry groups. She also serves as a board member for the Jubilee Market and advocate where she raises awareness across the United States concerning human trafficking. She is seeking a bachelor’s degree in psychology with an emphasis in Christian counseling through Liberty University. She is passionate about her marriage, family and women’s ministry and loves every minute of each!
Cherie’s life verse is Psalm 27:4,
“One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.” (NKJV)
Rebecca LeCompte | co-founder
Rebecca LeCompte is a self-proclaimed “recovering perfectionist.” Throughout her life, she has wrestled with the desire to be perfect in all things while realizing that she is entirely imperfect. After walking with Jesus for many years, Rebecca is finally at peace (mostly) about being so much less than perfect. Through her weaknesses, Rebecca has seen God’s perfection, beauty, strength and wisdom made manifest in her life and the lives of her family in countless ways…and she’s so grateful!
Rebecca first expressed her desire to teach at the tender age of four, when she would come home from kindergarten and teach her dolls everything she learned at school. Teaching has remained a strong desire in her heart throughout her life, as she has taught toddlers to adults in a variety of settings. Although she enjoys teaching a range of subjects, Rebecca is most passionate about teaching others about the goodness and grace of God and how to develop a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus that results in victorious living. As a co-founder of The Imperfect Wives, Rebecca has delighted in seeing God move in the hearts and lives of women as they seek His wisdom for their personal journeys and for their marriages.
