Don’t miss the extraodinary
Are you ready to hear what God can do when you say “yes” to Him?
My writing journey began back in 2000. I attended writing groups, conferences, hired editors, and spent time working in ways to learn the craft of writing and become traditionally published. In 2009 I was blessed with a wonderful literary agent and my manuscripts were pitched to major publishing companies.
Then in 2012, during a time of prayer, the Lord directed me to release my agent and self-publish. Y’all that was HARD! I loved my agent and the agency she worked for. I loved the thought of my books being picked up by a major publisher. Later, God directed me to stop marketing my books and let Him do the marketing. To be obedient to God, I had to lay down my ideas of what my journey would look like.
Following God isn’t always easy, but God is an extraordinary God who guides in amazing ways. Since 2012, I’ve released seventeen books (fiction, non-fiction, and devotionals). As my first-fruit offering to the Lord, when I publish my books, I give away the e-books for free for the five days that Amazon will allow. And as the Lord leads, I’ll have additional free days. God blesses abundantly when I freely share what He has freely given me to write. I owe God so much for saving me and giving me eternal life through the sacrifice and grace of His Son, Jesus Christ.
When God calls you to do something out of the ordinary, trust Him to lead you on an extraordinary journey. Dare to take the adventure with God. Say “yes” to God, and watch what He will do that no man can explain.
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!” (Ephesians 3:20-21, MSG).
“God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it, He throws caution to the winds, giving to the needy in reckless abandon. His right-living, right-giving ways never run out, never wear out. This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God” (2 Corinthians 9:8-11, MSG).

Hey sweet friend! I so honor and respect you as an author and as a woman of faith. Thank you for all you have poured into my life. I pray Gods’s richest blessings on your life.
Oh thank you, sweet Mary! I appreciate all the ways God uses you to help and encourage me, and so many others. Thank you! I’m praying for you. God’s richest blessings on your life too! XOXO
God bless you Lisa! Love all the books you gave me! They are heartfelt and encouraging! So much better to read about how God changes lives, then to read those books that don’t give credit to God.
Awww thank you, Roberta. Oh how I wish everyone would come to the Lord and find His wonderful, amazing grace!
Lisa you have given me much to think on and take before the Lord. Thank you! May God continue to bless you. This reminds me of Keith Green. He gave to any who couldn’t afford his writings and music albums. His concerts were always free and he took criticism in the music industry for it. His writings and music greatly impacted my depth as a young adult. His words/lyrics challenged me greatly for my eternal good. Again thank you.
Robin, thank you for your kind words. Sharing with others about our wonderful Lord is a blessing. God’s blessings to you!
