Delena Stuart Watson


Delena is a wife, mother, grandmother, Corporate/Christian speaker, published author and founder of Ragan’s HOPE. When asked what she is most proud of with her accomplishments, she will answer, “my family.”  Although Delena has been an executive in the corporate sector for many years and has celebrated achievements and awards, her family remains her priority.  Delena and her late husband Randy were blessed to raise three daughters.

Delena’s passion is to serve other parents who have children with medical issues, and help them understand that they are not alone.  With God’s direction, she developed a nonprofit called Ragan’s HOPE, a national organization to help families in need.

Both Delena and the foundation have received several awards within the non-profit sector recognizing the dedication of its mission. She serves as the founder of this organization and feels that in addition to raising her children, this is an accomplishment of which she is very proud.

Delena also enjoys speaking to audiences with various interests.  Her speaking topics include various topics for Women’s Ministries/Events, navigating the health-care industry, overcoming adversity, leadership, various corporate topics and the power of faith.  She will cater the topic to the specific audience.

Her debut memoir, “Finding Hope During Uncertainty”, was written to encourage others as they go through difficult times. Delena knew years ago that a book was in the making, but waited for God’s timing for it to be written. Her inspiration comes from her own story and experiences, which she hopes will inspire others to not only endure, but embrace what they are going through.    

Delena and her husband Dan live in Texas and love spending time with their grandson, Ethan.
