CHECK BACK TOMORROW FOR THIS WEEK’S SOUL H2O DEVOTIONAL
Publishing my second book, Soul H2O is such a different experience than with my first. With the release of Water In The Desert I didn’t know what I was doing AT ALL! Now I know A BIT more and realize how difficult it is to get a book out to market successfully. It’s not that it can’t be done, it’s just harder than I imagined. Luckily I’m not one to shy away from the hard stuff. Thankfully, God has been doing some crazy amazing things in my life that are perfectly positioning me for the Soul H2O Book Launch.
I’m most excited that God is perfectly positioning the right people in my life to help me learn how to do this ‘writing career’ thing.
I’m completely blessed to have blogger Christine Duncan of Precepts and Life Preservers taking the lead on the Soul H2O Social Media Book Launch Campaign and I hope you join us. It’s gonna be fun! Christine has planned out posts that all you have to do is share and I’ll be doing my best to make it worth your while with some special perks J You’ll get a prerelease PDF of my book. I’m doing a Facebook Live today, Wednesday, September 21st that will tell you more. Hope you can watch live. If not check the video out later. I’ll post it on my author Facebook Page.

Here’s the link if you want more info. You can even see a sample of the book’s interior here too.
I just learned how to make videos with iMovie! Are you in a time where everything is new for you? Do you know what I’m talking about? Have you ever moved, started a new job, school, gym or church? Ok, enough with the interrogation questions. You get what I mean!
It’s an unsettling feeling when you’re in totally new territory. I’m so thankful that the Bible is full of relatable people. They’re not perfect, they’re flawed. They’re not always brave, they struggle with fear and some get this ‘I don’t know exactly what I’m doing or where I’m going” feeling. God keeps bringing me back to the story of the Israelites crossing over the rushing Jordan river on dry ground into the promised land story in Joshua 3-4.
My life is mimicking their experience on both a professional and personal level. In both areas I am facing a sea of raging uncertain circumstances that will either be the blockage to God’s promises or the pathway to His blessings. In both situations it’s the second time I’m facing a similar circumstance that didn’t exactly get me into the ‘Promised Land. Both got me on the journey, but not quite there yet. I believe the Lord is speaking to me that these ‘second battles’ are the breakthrough battles that lead to overriding victory!
Here’s a verse that was shining off the page as I read through the story in Joshua:
“However, stay about half a mile behind them. Don’t come any closer to them so that you will know which way to go because you have not gone this way before.”
God directed the Israelites to follow the ark. They were to stay far enough behind it so they could get a clear vision of where it was going to follow on an easy path.
God has perfectly positioned me to stand behind some great women of the faith and watch what they’re doing. Authors like Karol Ladd, Mary DeMuth, Jennifer Strickland, Sheila Wray-Gregoire, Sue Detweiler. Speakers like Peggy Kennedy and Tracey Mitchell. Bloggers like Kelly Balarie, Crystal Storms, Sarah E Ball and most recently Lindsey Hartz. TV Hosts like Cheryl Weber and Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson. Publicists like Ellen Graf-Martin, Jeane Wynn and Katie Nguyen. I don’t take these new relationships for granted. I thank God for bringing women into my life that encourage, challenge and inspire me to pull out all the stops and move forward with all that God has for my life. I hope you do the same!
I’ve been given some opportunities that not a lot of Canadian authors receive. I’ve been offered the opportunity to promote Soul H2O across North America in three phases. First with the Social Media book launch team. Second in Bookstores across Canada during December. My publisher, Warren Benson of Word Alive Press has coordinated US distribution of my book through Anchor Distributors. Soul H2O is going to be available for purchase in all the Christian bookstores across the US and Water In The Desert is already available! Now to get the US stores like Family Christian and LifeWay to stock the book like Canadian bookstores are doing. This is how I feel that God has perfectly positioned me for the next level in publishing with these distribution channels.
Since we live in the real world, all this great opportunity costs, and boy does it cost! Because of this…
To help execute these opportunities and make them the best they can be, I’ve set up this campaign to presell and sell my new books.

Todd and I were blessed to spend the weekend at Braeside Camp after his Art Show Reception on Friday night. Seeing his art in the gallery makes me so very proud! People have such amazing emotional responses to his art.
We arrived at the trailer late Friday night to the most rancid smell I’ve ever experienced, and I grew up on farms! Somehow the plug to our trailer was not completely connected and the power was out. No one had been to the trailer for about two weeks and there had been meat in the fridge. Oh my grossness it was horrible!
Thankfully, we were at my happy place! Braeside Camp!
Pastor Doug Schneider from The Embassy Church in Oshawa was the speaker. The whole weekend’s messages were about longing for God’s presence. There was a tangible sense of His presence. People were healed, set free and strengthened. It’s been an incredible weekend!!!
I also got to show my friends my author copy of Soul H2O. I was especially thankful that I got to see my mentor Peggy Kennedy and show her the book. Peggy provided the Foreward for the book and I dedicated the book to her.
This weekend was perfect, minus the stinky fridge! A great way to end the summer and start the Fall season. Filled up ready to hit the road preaching again ?
Check back tomorrow for the weekly #SoulH2O devotion.
Be Blessed & Refreshed,
On Monday I published the first devotion for the In The Beginning Series, but it all started last week when Todd and I were blessed to attend the General Conference for the PAOC in Montreal, Quebec. We were there with our publisher, Warren Benson from Word Alive Press, promoting our books, but mostly our Church Challenges to pastors. http://www.takethe40daychallenge.com
‘La Belle Province’ lived up to it’s name as God did so many beautiful things there. One of the most rewarding is how he reconnected me to friends and teachers from Bible College. It was as if life hadn’t taken that crazy turn and my journey didn’t skip a beat. I was back joking, discussing and living life among friends, and I got to introduce them to my husband Todd. It was like God hit the reset button and I’m back in the beginning, ready to fulfill the call of God on my life. Actually, I remember the day God hit that reset button.
In the Fall of 2011 I went to a reunion for the Bible College I attended, now called Master’s College and Seminary. I was nervous going to the reunion. Ending up divorced was not a part of my life goals when I left the halls of Bible College. I had dreams of raising my family in a healthy, Christ-centred home filled with peace and doing great things for God in ministry. Sadly, my plans were derailed for a couple decades, but God wasn’t finished with my story.
At the reunion I was so inspired by the messages spoken through Craig Burton, a I guy I sat in class with, then Chairman of the Bible College Board and some younger guy named Rich Janes. I’m sure Rich will like that one! The most life-affecting message came through the words of another friend from Bible College, Kevin Johnson. Kevin’s message was powerful. He talked about how God had hit the ‘reset’ button on the life of the Bible College since it moved back to the Peterborough campus, and how God was doing the same in people’s lives. I felt Holy Spirit speak to me and encourage me that God had hit the reset button on my life.
Now, if only He had hit the reset button on my skin…
Seriously, this was a Word from the Lord that changed my life and began to set in motion God’s plans for my future. Over the past 5 years God has allowed me to remarry the kind of man I dreamed about as a teenager. I’ve written a book, with my second releasing in October. God has opened up the doors for me to preach across Canada and in the United States. Through radio I’ve been able to encourage believers in England. God’s reconnected me in relationship with so many of my College friends. Now we’re doing life and ministry together; just as I had dreamed of back in the beginning.
At Conference last week I was so thankful to be a part of the PAOC. Our Superintendent Dave Wells, did an amazing job. He strategically picked the speakers. I was so proud to hear my friend Patti Miller address the Conference.
Dave gave a powerful closing message at the final communion service where he talked about how God intended for everyone to “sit at the table” in reaching Canada and the world for Christ: young and old, male and female, rich and poor, citizen and immigrant. He made this clear by having someone from each of these groups sit at a table on stage and take communion before us as we all did together. Completely powerful!
Last week I went home and read through Genesis 1-2. The truths of these passages hit me. It became abundantly clear that what had taken place at General Conference was honouring to God’s original plans for men and women to work together
Over the next weeks as you read the devotions in this series, I pray you’re encouraged and that your eyes are opened to the original plans God had for this world, in the beginning.
In His Grip,

“Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you." 1 Timothy 4:14 NIV
Recently I made a decision that has the potential to change my life in dramatic ways. It’s not easy for me to choose to do things for myself but years ago my friend Staci helped me to get better at that and I’m forever grateful to her! Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my working life and decided I really don’t want to work in finance anymore. I want to pursue the giftings God has placed in me, so after much deliberation, prayer and consultation, I registered myself for the John Maxwell Speaker and Life Coach Certification Course because I want to become a Talent-Plus person!
[tweetthis]Invest In Yourself #youreworthit [/tweetthis]
I’ve been greatly influenced by the writings of John C. Maxwell. I see the principles in his books all throughout scripture. The teachings in John’s book, Talent Is Never Enough1 emphasize the truth of today’s verse, 1 Timothy 4:14. Paul taught us through his writings that we all have been given gifts from God to be used for the benefit of the body.
In the scripture above, Paul is encouraging Tim, the young minister to not neglect his gift, and in Paul’s second letter to his young protégé, Paul encourages Tim to “stir up the gift” or “fan it into flame” (2 Timothy 1:6 NIV/ KJV). Paul is encouraging Timothy to become a Talent-Plus person.
And, it’s not just John C. Maxwell, God desires for you to be a Talent-Plus person. John’s book suggests you need to have talent plus: belief in yourself, passion, initiative, focus, preparation, practice, perseverance, courage, teachability, character, right relationships, responsibility, and a team to be successful.
Take a good look at your life and don’t neglect your gift! ‘Stir it up’ by taking the time to develop the gift God has given you, for His glory.
Father…I thank-you for the gifts and talents you have placed in my life. In my eyes, they seem so small and insignificant. Help me to see their purpose in Your plan so I understand their value. Show me how I should be working to develop the gifts You’ve given me. In Jesus Name…Amen

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
Proverbs 17:22 NLT
This weekend my son and his sweet girlfriend came down to visit. I love when Brandon comes because you know you’ll have a good time. Since he was a little kid he loved to laugh and tease. He’s always up for fun and this weekend was no different. We ate too much, watched a funny movie, laughed a bunch and most importantly…Todd and I won the best of 5 series in the game of Sequence! Scripture is right when it says, “A cheerful heart is good medicine”.
Laughing and having fun is what I believe God intended for his people. Sadly churches have presented God to so many in a drab, dreary way. Think about this…what boring God would ever create a giraffe, rhino, otter, emu, sloth or ring tailed lemur? Another thing to consider is when God made Adam…He recognized that something was missing and placed Eve in the garden with him. God didn’t want anyone to go it alone, or to journey through life without a cheerful heart. God wants us to enjoy our time on this earth and to have fun!
So, if your spirit is broken and you strength is sapped, don’t just go to bed. Find a friend, or watch a funny movie. Do something that will bring you a cheerful heart. It’ll be like medicine for your soul!
Father…I thank-you for the people you have placed in my life that help to bring about a cheerful heart in me. Help me to not just sit in my sadness ever, but to follow your direction and seek out joy. May I live my life in a way that brings a cheerful heart to others! Let ‘the joy of the Lord be my strength’.1 In Jesus Name…Amen
#Dare2Share Post in the Comment Section below.
On Monday I wrote a devotional called Hungry. I shared about how I was woken up by my grumbling tummy and one of the things that God spoke to me as I was up.
I think I could write about 12 devotionals from all God spoke to me that night! The message about our duty as Christians to help feed the Hungry has been a call that is very near and dear to my family. My grandmother instilled in us an eye to look for those in need and DO SOMETHING about it! Christmas makes me think of her and how she gave.
Christmas compels us to give.
Christmas is the time when we remember how God the Father gave His son to the world…when Jesus gave up His heavenly home for a lowly stable.
For months now I have been partnering with Cheryl Weber, Dave Shelley and the crew at Crossroads Relief & Development on a project in Turkana, Kenya. If you’ve come to an event where I’ve spoken at you’ve heard this before and thankfully some of you have been compelled to join with us in helping the people of Turkana be able to feed themselves!
If I had millions of dollars, I would give Crossroads the money needed to finish this project and stop people from dying of starvation in Turkana! Since I’m not independently wealthy, I will give what I can and use what I can to help get the word out. If we all DO SOMETHING the project will reach completion and thousands of families will be saved!
I can’t express enough how much this project touches my heart! God is growing gardens in the desert!!! Take time to watch this short video clip that explains the project and lets you see for yourself how they are growing gardens in the desert of Turkana, Kenya!

As I’ve been thinking about writing this post for the past week, Matthew West‘s song keeps going through my head. I hope it inspires you to DO SOMETHING great and feed a Hungry soul!
The Soul H2O devotions in the past two weeks have been particularly impactful to me personally because I’ve had some financial struggles as I changed careers over the past five years. I went from a Director of Finance position; making a salary matching my title, to a new author’s salary; and let’s just say you don’t get into Christian literature or speaking for the money! It has to be a calling, as it should be! Because of this calling, I just couldn’t give up when the vision didn’t match the provision! I just prayed more!
In my prayers for my finances God has seen fit to do some pretty crazy things (Like in the Provision Devo and CRAZY Provision FREE Download Post) to answer my prayers! To help with my income God chose to connect me with Helena Cho and a few others I will be introducing over the next few months.
While attending the 2015 International Christian Retail Show in Orlando, Florida for our books; when Todd and I were leaving the show on the last day, a woman came over and placed a wrap-around bracelet on my wrist. It had my grandmother’s favorite verse on it, Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”. This woman asked if we could wait as she felt we needed to meet the founder of GOODWORK(S) Jewelry, Helena Cho. As soon as we were introduced, God immediately connected Helena and I. We spent hours talking and praying in a hotel lobby later that night getting to know each other and we’ve continued to stay in contact. When she presented me with the opportunity to sell her scripture covered jewelry I knew immediately that this was a God connection, and an answer to my prayers in a most unusual way! God used the scripture from Monday’s devotional Fix These Words in Deuteronomy 11:18 and Deuteronomy 6:6-9 to confirm that I should sell her products.
I love how Helena’s products have scripture all over them! If you know me, you know that I LOVE jewelry and I LOVE scripture! In one way it seems a crazy way for God to provide, but when I think about it, me selling jewelry with scripture on it makes complete sense! I’ve always been big on having scripture out in view. I have a practice of writing out scripture on cue cards or pretty pieces of paper to help me fix His Words in my thoughts and not just my own. If I leave my thoughts to my natural patterns of thinking it can be detrimental. I love having tactful artwork around my home that has scripture on it too.
Helena is the daughter of Korean pastors. She too is inspired by scripture! Helena told me there were two scripture passages that inspired her business GOODWORK(S). The first gave her a vision to make a company using inspirational words:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”
About second Helena said:
“…this verse gave me my company’s name and direction for my company”
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
I am pleased to partner with Helena and GOODWORK(S). Such an impactful company that provides people with gorgeous jewelry and a way to fix God’s words in your sight! I love how she is committed to helping others with the profit in her company; as Helena says it’s:
In order to make the bracelets available to you, Todd and I are going to be selling the jewelry along with our books and Todd’s Greeting Card Line at some great events this Christmas season. We’d love to meet you, so make sure to say hello and let me know you’re a reader if you’re at any of the events posted below.

CEO Helena Cho
“Fashion With A Purpose” was the goal for CEO Helena Cho.
Since 2011, her company GOODWORK(S) Make a Difference has pledged 25% of its net profits to charitable contributions supporting in-need communities around the world.
Cho always had a vision of being able to create something that could benefit needy communities. Inspired by a charity run’s ability to unite individuals to achieve a common goal, she crafted a bracelet—an uplifting piece gifted as a random act of kindness. Over time, her work grew in popularity, earning strong support and a loyal following. Leveraging previous retail experience and a strong academic background as a dual-major Marketing and Finance graduate at the University of Southern California, Cho established her own business intent on delivering positive, empowering merchandise to the public.
Helena now resides over one of the fastest growing socially conscious fashion/accessories brands in the market, sold across 40 countries and 1,800 boutique stores within the United States. Highlights of the company’s advocacy work include providing home essentials to over 117 former homeless families as part of its “Home Sweeter Home” campaign, working with nationally renowned enrichment program LA’s Best to provide over 1,200 holiday gifts to low income students, and sponsoring an annual “Dream Prom” event for scholastically deserving, underprivileged high school students. “Random acts of kindness really make a difference”, she reflects, “and empower people.”
GOODWORK(S) has been awarded with accolades from a number of organizations including the Angel Award, the Diamond Award (NOLA) and the Global Humanitarian Awards. Today, GOODWORK(S) bracelets can be found in recognized storefronts including Buckle, Von Maur, and Fred Segal. The company has also developed positive media exposure across various mediums, including features on the pages of Elle, InTouch Weekly, and Cosmopolitan Magazine, among other international publications. Helena is passionate about inspiring people to help improve their communities and encouraging the act of charity in everyday decisions.

Today we are celebrating Thanksgiving with family.
Praying for God’s abundant blessings on your family and abundant provision for the year!
Check back tomorrow for your weekly #SoulH2O Devotion.
Todd and I are on our way home from Orlando, Florida after attending the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS). It was a roller-coaster ride of events on this trip! We left Toronto airport feeling good as we were blessed to have our seats bumped up to the emergency row…Can you say stretch out your legs!!! We had to take a connecting flight in Miami and sadly, because of the weather, we ended up not getting to the show at all on Monday.
Undaunted, we arrived in Orlando. When we finally got to the hotel the gentleman at the front desk put us in a larger room on the Executive Floor! Again we were feeling the favor of God! We thought for sure it was going to be our time to make our mark in the book industry! The hotel didn’t have our shipments at the Bell desk as they said, so we went for a really late dinner.
Arriving back at the hotel we found out that only our promotional materials arrived, but not our books! How could this be? I had called the hotel that morning and verified with the receiver that all our shipments were received. Our hearts sunk! How can you have a book signing without books? How could this happen for the third time in my life?
Once at a Family Christian Bookstore signing in Michigan a manager forgot to order the books in! Thankfully, I had some with me, and people just made orders with the store. The scary similarity was when I first attended ICRS two years ago and the SAME THING happened! Panic was my first response, but as I reminded myself about how God miraculously took care of this before…He could do it again! I called UPS and they told me they couldn’t do anything until 10am tomorrow. According to the electronic records, the books were probably on their way back to Canada. It was so obvious that the enemy didn’t want God’s plans for our lives to succeed! He wanted Todd and I to get upset with each other and start blaming each other. In an act of faith we began filling the promo bags. We prayed over each bag, continually thanking God for the books that would be in those bags at the signing the next day. The more we prayed, the less we stressed and the more fun we had.
I sent out an email to our incredible prayer team and went to sleep like a baby!
In the morning I spent about 2 hours on the phone with UPS. Finally the books were found at the depot in Orlando. With much prayer backing and insistence, they delivered the books!!!
Our Canadian Publishers: Warren Benson and Jeremy Braun from Word Alive Press coordinated a partnership with Anchor Distributors to sell our books in the US market; guess that should really have been Miracle #1 J . When we arrived in the booth it was a strange thing for the Anchor team to have to work with “the Canadians”, but by the end of the show we felt such a connection with the team and a part of the Anchor family!
The book signing started off slow, but quickly picked up speed. There was a buzz around the show about the new ‘writing couple’ and the book for men! 40 Days In The Man Cave was a hit! Bookstore owner after bookstore owner told us how they need good men’s books and products. They were impressed with Todd’s book and loved the promo footballs!
At the end of the signing I saw my friend Susie Jennings coming up the aisle. I couldn’t have been happier to see her! Susie had been there for a book signing for her newly released, 31 DAYS OF MOUNTAINTOP MIRACLES earlier that day. I was so happy to see her and invited her to come to dinner with us. Susie built up our faith as she shared miracle after miracle that God had fulfilled through her lifework with the homeless and needy around the world through Operation Care International! There aren’t many more inspiring people than Susie!
The next morning we were blessed to be on Bob Crittenden’s show The Meeting House on FAITH Radio in Montgomery Alabama. It was an honor to be interviewed by the man who has had people like Charles Stanley, Kay Arthur and Matthew West on his show. An added bonus was the “Thank-you” bag of candy homemade by his wife! Sweetness of the South!
Throughout the conference, God was weaving a network of divine connections for Todd and I! None more important than another…all a part of the journey God has us on to fulfill all He’s calling us to do! You’ll be hearing a lot more about these people in the coming months as we see how God chooses to partners us together! We met Laci & Alex Corzo of Scents of the Spirit. They’re an awesome young couple venturing out into the perfume business!
I was happy to meet another writing couple’, Tom & Jan Lane, authors of Strong WOMEN and The Men Who Love Them. They are pastors at Gateway Church in Dallas where I just bought their book and was able to meet Josh Alltop. He’s Kari Jobe’s producer and now producing the song “Water In My Desert” by Rachelle Fletcher. The song will be released on iTunes in the next few months. Author and Talk Radio Host, Shirley W. Mitchell from Alabama and I hit it off! We’re looking forward to connecting in the future, Shirley’s also going to have Todd and I on her show as guests. I was honored when Shirley said that she couldn’t wait to start my devotional for her personal study that night! We met Eddie from Spirit & Truth jewelry and thought their rings, bracelets and men’s line was great! Really cool guy stuff! Fireman Todd approved!
Last, but definitely not least, God blessed me with a wonderful new friend in Helena Cho, founder of the GOODWORK(S) Jewelry line! We stayed up talking way too late but it was worth every minute of lost sleep! I had bought her jewelry at Buckle many times before, so it was amazing to meet her. She’s a passionate woman who is making an indelible mark that will not be wiped out. Her generosity is changing lives around the globe. Makes me think of the song “This girl is on fire”! I couldn’t be happier to partner with anyone else.
As we wait for our again delayed plane with kids tossing around Todd’s promo giveaway mini-footballs, I’m thankful for the time that God has allowed for me to reflect on the last 3 days! They’ve been a whirlwind of God’s goodness as we walked through the open doors!
