She accepted a fulltime internship in the Office of Public Liaison at The White House and returned to RZIM to help launch Wellspring International, an initiative devoted to providing financial grants to international efforts working with at-risk women and children. Naomi has visited with women in red-light districts across Europe and Asia; foster homes for children affected by HIV/AIDS throughout Asia and Africa; displacement camps in Uganda and areas of the Middle East offering aid to Iraqi refugees; areas devastated by natural disaster; and international shelters for victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.

In 2004, Naomi authored a chapter on women and education in Zealous Love: A Practical Guide to Social Justice, published by Zondervan. In Real Women, Real Faith (DVD Volumes 1 &2), Naomi is one of six speakers leading sessions on Old and New Testament female Bible characters. Her first book, The Scent of Water: Grace for Every Kind of Broken, was released by Zondervan in 2011.
