Prayer Study Guide

prayer-study-guide-coverI am excited to share the cover of Prayer Study Guide—Companion to Prayer: It’s Not About You.

My lifelong friend Harriet Michael wrote an awesome book, Prayer: It’s Not About Me. When I received my copy last May, I began marking it and thinking about how to teach the book to a study group. The Prayer Study Guide is the compilation of the reading and homework assignments this group worked through.

(Harriet co-authored Glimpses of the Savior: 30 Meditations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year with me.)

It will be available in January 2017 on Kindle and in paperback from Amazon and most bookstores by request.

Is your heart prepared for Christmas?

Thanksgiving is over, yet we should have a thankful heart 365 days a year. Now we begin thinking, is your heart prepared for Christmas?

It is only through the work of God that our hearts can be prepared for Christmas. We must ask Him to prepare our hearts to see Him in and through everything we encounter during this holiday season.

Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart;

Using Psalm 10:17 (above) and a devotional from Glimpses of the Savior by Shirley Crowder and Harriet E. Michael as our spring board for discussion, we will look at what Scripture tells us about how we can prepare our hearts to seek God—during the holidays and throughout the year!

Thanksgiving Day is Coming

Glimpses of the Savior FRONT cover“Thanksgiving Day is Coming” is a poem I heard my mom recite every November from the time I was very young. I have not found the author’s name anywhere. The poem is the exchange between a turkey and a pumpkin talking about becoming turkey dinner and pumpkin pie.

While we do not have to be concerned about becoming part of some family’s Thanksgiving dinner, we are often very busy with our regular responsibilities, and then add to that the concomitant responsibilities that come with our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year preparations and celebrations.

This is a great time to get your copy of Glimpses of the Savior: 30 Meditations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year that my Nigeria MK cousin and I co-authored.

These make great Christmas Gifts! The devotions begin the week before Thanksgiving and take you through the New Year.

Available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and in paperback from Amazon and most bookstores by request.

Prayer: It’s Not About You w/ Harriet Michael

Prayer coverI am so excited that my life-long friend and Glimpses of the Savior co-author, Harriet E. Michael, will be joining us for the next two weeks for discussions on prayer that we are basing on her newly-released book, Prayer: It’s Not About You.

Tune in for an opportunity to win a free copy of Prayer: It’s Not About You that has been signed by Harriet.

In addition to being my life-long friend, Harriet is a committed Christ-follower, who is a Christian writer. In addition to this book about prayer, she co-wrote Glimpses of the Savior, and has had over 200 of her devotionals published.

Read Harriet’s blog about it: What He Has Done For My Soul

Join us as we remain on the topic of “Women in Ministry” by continuing our journey through the book, Paul the Counselor: Counseling and Disciple-making Modeled by the Apostle, edited by Dr. Mark Shaw and Dr. Bill Hines. Chapter 11: “Paul and Women in Ministry” written by Ruth Froese and Shirley Crowder will be the springboard for our discussions.

While some of the discussions will speak specifically to women who work in ministry/church organizations, these discussions are pertinent to every woman who is a Christ-follower.

We will have several women as in-studio and Skyped-in guests throughout this series. You will not want to miss hearing any of these testimonies of God at work in and through the lives of these women!
