It’s finally here… Monday is my BOOK SIGNING in Orange City and MY GLOBAL LIVESTREAM BOOK LAUNCH. I’m so grateful to everyone near and far who took an interest in the first two books in the Legacy Series, in the inspiration that I spill out on Social Media, and the coaching programs based on the books. This book launch will be a celebration to you all, and God, for all the support you’ve shown along the way.
So what is this book about? Embracing the Loving Legacy was made to take the God-partnered life that you developed out of my first book, Awaking the Living Legacy, a step further… and INTO YOUR HOME.
See, I’ve been watching my coaching clients’ lives transform before my eyes by nothing other than getting God-partnered. The natural progression after one gets ‘God-partnered’ and learns how to tap into all God has to offer is that God’s voice and nudges get louder, and He starts using you more. Better than that even, you get better at hearing Him (KNOWING HIS VOICE), which makes following Him so much easier. This is when He gets you in a really sweet spot.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
Some of you might know that over the last year, my podcast, Living Within the Sweet Spot, was syndicated. I loved seeing the listener numbers in multiple countries climbing because it’s proof that we all want to know God and hope for a way to do life well. No matter our age, race, or status, this world can be crazy, and God is our rock when we find ourselves on shaky ground.
My church helped support me as I stepped into the talk show pilot and reminded me how important it is to have support as you learn to deepen your faith and walk with God. I never dreamed that within a year, the listener numbers would be high enough that I had choices. I was able to either renew or go out on my own.
The ‘exact’ same month my radio show contract would need to be renewed, I got an email about a television pilot on Chip and Joanna Gaines’ network that would be starting shortly after my new book came out. Knowing it was going to cost me some money to do the pilot, I decided to go out on my own with the radio show, so now I could afford to invest in this new project. I could see God’s timing at work. The Gaines’ television programming was going to be geared around 5 main topics (home, marriage, health, parenting, and community) when I saw the list there was that familiar nudge again.
My eyes wanted to skim over the email quickly so I could hit delete (which is my typical pattern each morning) instead zoned in on the five categories they would use to fill their slots. And I heard whispering… ‘Step in.’ So although it feels unbelievable that my book and it’s six topics (FYI, all 5 they are programming with, plus one more) would possibly be on television – I’ve given up on talking myself out of things. I’ve stopped acting on self-doubt and learned to send it back to the deliverer (Satan himself). I’ve learned to thank God regardless of my comfort because I know when I take Him with me… He ALWAYS blesses it in one way or another, and it is my job to obey.
So regardless of if we hear him correctly or get it wrong, if we feel ‘personally’ ill-equipped, or have no idea how to act on His wishes, I know that it is He who makes us enough. On our own, it often is impossible, and we do fall short. It is He who will open doors, close others, and scoot us off in another direction if we get it wrong.
I want us to be okay with looking a bit odd to the world as long as WE LOVE Him, listen to Him and follow (SERVE) Him as best we can.
This is what Embracing the LOVING Legacy is all about. To help my newly or more deeply God-partnered friends, colleagues and clients bring their God-partnered love and service into their homes and to their families.
It’s the perfect place to start disciplining, and that is where book two in the Legacy Series begins…
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region
beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
The six areas covered in Embracing the Loving Legacy are:
I’d love to have each and every one of you at Holland House in Orange City Monday from 5 – 8 pm, but if you are too far away or simply can’t make it out, I will be LIVE streaming all night, so you don’t miss 5 door prizes and mini (5-Minute) coaching/inspiration sessions. We will also have refreshments and loads of fun.
I am sending prayers your way…
That we know, with undoubting assurance, that God can transform our home just as he does our lives when we truly get them God-partnered.
Blessings and Praises,
