About Gayle Haas


Wife, mother, grandmother, prayer warrior, teacher, dramatist/storyteller, Gayle Haas is a nurturer who embraces the Biblical values of life and family. She takes great pleasure in developing and performing the dramatic monologues of various characters.

Gayle currently portrays two main characters: Corrie ten Boom, a real-life Holocaust survivor who worked with the Dutch underground to provide refuge for Jews in Holland during Nazi occupation, and Grannie Carter, a make believe elderly woman with an infectious laugh, who sprinkles her stories of timeless truths with country humor.

Graduating from Western Illinois University with a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics and Consumer Education, she has taught in both public and private schools. Her love for people of all ages has enhanced her participation and leadership in women’s ministry, children’s ministry, family education programs, and care giving ministry.

Gayle and her husband Dan are long time residents of Aurora, Illinois. After 32 years of local church ministry, Gayle and Dan formed A Future and A Hope Foundation, NFP, to implement and share the Biblical principles of family life, community transformation and revival. They are both credentialed by Alliance International Ministries.

Gayle loves a good laugh, reading historical fiction, meeting new people, and visiting with family and friends. To read what others have to say about Gayle and her performances please visit our testimonials page.
