But then God!

It makes no sense. I guess you could say it’s baffling, mind boggling, life altering, stupendous, and leaves me humbled, grateful, and tee- totally in awe of the amazing power of God. I can’t fathom or even explain why my God would have chosen me to write a book.

You see, five years ago my marriage was broken. As a matter of fact it was Lazarus been in the grave for three days, stankin’ dead. I was a plastic Christian with a phony smile, playing church, flirting with sin, filled with fear, eating after the swine and everything, I mean EVERYTHING felt as if it were falling apart. But then GOD….

You ever been there? If not your marriage, maybe your finances, health, struggle with a prodigal child, a relationship, battle with insecurities, depression, an addiction, attacks of fear, feelings of rejection, or even the loss of a job, and you wanted to shout out with all the strength left in you, I JUST CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! 

So what do you do when all of hell breaks loose? I’m talking about faith shaking, staggering, startling, spiritual warfare, against you, your family, relationships, health, when life doesn’t seem fair, and you feel like you are being attacked with what if’s, why’s, fear, doubt, worry, gossip, negative thoughts, or even by negative people who act like they have been baptized in dill pickle juice!

Get a G.R.I.P. is not a how-to manual, it is a helpful companion filled with words of encouragement, scriptures, hope, and nugget devotionals. Are you holding a handful of shattered dreams, standing at a crossroad wondering which road you should take, haunted by insecurities, dreading a decision, and a possible mistake? Stop agonizing. Fight back. Get a G.R.I.P.  The four powerful truths shared in this acrostic will encourage you and resonate with women everywhere.

I am so excited to announce that Get a G.R.I.P. is set to release on January 8, just in time for the sold out Intentionally & Wonderfully Made Conference at The Bridge on January 9. Join Sherry Jennings, and I, along with Lysa Terkeurst, President of Proverbs 31 Ministries, for food, fellowship, chocolate, shopping, encouragement, and the Word of God.  Be sure to stop by the Intentionally Yours table and pick up your signed copy of Get a G.R.I.P. and remember, as long as you are breathing, there is HOPE!

Intentionally Yours is a 501(c)3 organization committed to sharing God's truth, hope and vision for marriage until every home is a godly home. Will you partner with us in this mission? Thank you for your support!
