SNEAK PEEK: TBN COMMERCIAL FOR NEW WORSHIP BOOK!

praise worship worship book Sep 04, 2020
 

In preparation for the WORSHIP: Are You Making a Sound? book release, TBN has created a 30 second commercial which will air soon on Hillsong Channel! 

How amazing is God?!

Picture this: a young woman from a small church in Pennsylvania was moved to write a Bible study book in the middle of her busiest season of life (raising two kids and excelling at a demanding corporate career). 

Now, this young woman, still juggling the demands of her career, motherhood, and a global pandemic, is one of TBN's newest authors and that book she wrote years ago has a TV COMMERCIAL. 

That young woman is me! 

I don't say this to boast about me, but to BOAST ABOUT GOD! 

HALLELUJAH! 

Only God could do this. Only God could give me the strength during these demanding seasons. Only God could open these doors.

The mission that God has blazoned on my heart is to empower a generation to release an authentic sound of worship that moves mountains and brings Heaven...

Worship Wednesdays # 6 - I Know Who I Am & Who I Worship

WORSHIP WEDNESDAYS SERIES

This series is an invitation to take 15-20 minutes out of your day to simply come before the LORD in authentic and simple worship and praise.
You can expect for me to share a song that has been ministering to my soul, along with Bible verses to support the message of the song, and a few encouraging words.

So clear off your schedule for the next 20 minutes, put aside any fears or worries, and step into the Presence of God with me.


Worship Wednesdays # 6 - I Know Who I am & Who I Worship

When our feelings, worries, and concerns try to cause us to doubt God's ability to perform, we must turn our hearts to worship.

When we worship, we align ourselves with the truth found in His word. True worship is the process of coming into agreement with His character, His abilities, and our position as believers of Jesus Christ.


Despite our circumstances, we must tell the world what Jesus said in John 4:22, "We know what we worship."

We know who God is.

We've seen...

Worship Wednesdays # 5 - Praising with a Two-Edged Sword in Hand!

"Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds.

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand," 

Psalms 149:5-6

When I first read these verses earlier today in Psalm 149, I was struck with their power! I am so passionate about worship and praise being chief among the spiritual weapons that God has given His believers, so I get so excited when I find even more Scriptures to back it up.

Read Part II Here

Psalm 32:7 says, “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.”

This verse is such a wonderful reminder that praise and worship through song has the power to deliver us from our troubles.

I will bless the LORD...

A little worship and praise inspiration from the work of my 6 year old and some fresh cut flowers from our garden.


Unlike the flowers which will soon fade and pass away, the Word of God will never pass away.

It remains true and powerful forever.

With increased time at home and for the foreseeable future, I am trying to take advantage of this opportunity and be more intentional about the seeds I am planting in our children.

Seeds of hope.

Seeds of love.

Seeds of peace.

Seeds of praise.

Seeds of value.

Seeds of salvation.

Seeds of everlasting truth.


“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
Psalms 34:1

RELEASE DATE ANNOUNCED!

WORSHIP: Are You Making a Sound? Second Edition Will Release on September 5, 2020!

As many of you know, in February I signed a publishing contract with TBN and Trilogy Christian Publishing to officially publish a second edition of the WORSHIP: Are You Making a Sound? 12 Week Bible Study Journey. To God be All the Glory! 

I've been working hard over the last several months to add fresh content to the Worship Bible study, but also being careful to not change the message that God gave me several years ago now. 

I am so excited to finally have a release date in sight and to see where God takes this humble, but powerful Bible study on the spiritual tools of worship and praise.

On Saturday, September 5, 2020 not only will the paperback copy be released but also the Kindle/e-book version will be released! You'll be able to obtain a copy through Amazon, TBN's website, and wherever books are sold. 

Be sure to get on the email list, follow along on...

Read Part I here.

As I mentioned last week, over the next few weeks I will be sharing a few Biblical examples of how God brought victory to His people through the power of worship and praise. One of my very favorite stories is found in 2 Chronicles 20, when King Jehoshaphat was faced with a huge army coming against the people of Israel. 

Example #2: King Jehoshaphat's Final Battle

Read it now: 2 Chronicles 20

Quick Summary:  Probably the most quoted scripture...

Worship Wednesdays #2 - Worship is My Warfare

If you've been following the Soul of Worship Ministry for any length of time then you will know that I LOVE the concept of worship being one of our spiritual weapons of defense. When we worship and praise God, God fights our battles on our behalf. 

Worship is a critical strategy of spiritual warfare. Not many of us realize just how powerful our praise and worship can be.

But no more. 

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing a few Biblical examples of how God...
