Our Story

How it all started...

W.I.L.D. (Winning In Life Daily) Ministries was born out of a heart’s desire to see people experience the goodness of God and His wonderful love and acceptance in their everyday life, here and now. We rejoice and celebrate the life that God has given you and it is our prayer that you find His wonderful plan for your life and continue to enjoy Winning In Life Daily with Him!!!

Mavis Kurkowski is founder and President of W.I.L.D. (Winning in Life Daily) Ministries. Her desire is to bring transformational teaching of the Word of God, releasing encouragement to believers. These revelational teachings equip believers to flourish in their God-given identity and destiny; enabling them to experience victory in their lives and empowering them to impact the world around them.
