Why do I write, why do I feel compelled to share my stories with the world? For the same reason someone once took the time to share their stories in a book I read, ultimately leading me to see my need for a relationship with Jesus that would transform my life, and that is to glorify God. That was almost 38 years ago and God has laid on my heart to do the same, share my stories of how He transformed my life, answered prayer and proved Himself to be the faithful God of the Bible He claims to be. I have seen it at work in my life and shared some of that in my first book, “Momentum: The Transformational Power of Leadership.”
Book 2, “Momentum: A Faith Powered Journey” will take the reader deeper into the story, starting from the beginning when I had no faith in God, where I was at, the events at that time and how Jesus showed up and transformed my life. I will then share the stories, some of which are shared in book 1, but now behind the scenes and putting the events in chronological order so you can see for yourself how God was orchestrating everything to bring about His plan for our life.
The goal is to encourage the reader, that no matter what’s going on in their life, to see that God is in control and will take them through the hard times. It just takes time and sometimes the journey is smooth sailing, quick answers to prayer and other times it seems the boat is about to break apart and you’re wondering where God is. I really can’t wait to finish it and share it with you. I pick back up writing this weekend with the goal of publishing by the end of the year.
“Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.” 2 Corinthians 9:13
