(speaks Spanish and English)
Evie West speaks from experience as a former L.A. gang member and two-time teen mother who was faced with the decision to terminate her second unborn son. Through God’s amazing grace, a story of intrigue, tough love, and miracles, Evie’s life is now a passionate picture of redemption and abundant life.
Evie’s story comes alive on the pages of her book, “Revolving Choices: Playing Roulette with Life.” Each chapter brings to life the adventure and journey of a young, Hispanic girl in a desperate search for identity, but whose life drastically changed when confronted by the power of Jesus Christ. Her story is evidence that God can take your mess and make it your message of love, forgiveness, and restoration.
In 1996, Evie was divinely transplanted to Cleveland, Tennessee where she enrolled at Lee University. In 2001, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Intercultural Studies and a minor in Bible. Evie now serves her community as a police officer for the City of Cleveland and works to promote an environment of peace and safety by assisting several organization boards such as Ocoee Regional Multicultural Services, Keep America Beautiful, and Habitat for Humanity.
Because she understands how one comes to the decision to abort a child and what it feels like to give birth and not take her baby home, she speaks with heartfelt compassion on pro-life issues. Adoption as an option is a message she endorses as a volunteer at New Hope Pregnancy Care Center in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Evie is married to Brandon West who works as a physician’s assistant. They have two children.
"Evie is the real deal! She is a great communicator - sincere, articulate and passionate about giving God all the glory. She is the hope of "abundant life" that we should have for each and every client. Our audience was captivated by her message and our donors were reminded of the critical need for their support and involvement. Hands down, one of the best appeals that has been delivered in our 30+ year history. She has a true gift!"

"We really appreciated having Evie here. She is such a relatable woman and definitely being used by God.
Evie did a great job at our banquet. She told her story with such passion and pain that she kept the audience's attention. The upturn of her redemptive story and how she related that to the women and men in our area needing that same grace and that same opportunity to meet with a center like ours really connected with her listeners. Thank you so much for connecting us with Evie."
