Humanity is having a major identity crisis.

In a fast-paced world, it’s easy to construct an identity based on how many likes you have on social media, how many degrees you have earned, or other materialistic achievements. But when everything is stripped away – who are you, really?

I found myself on the precipice of a life-changing decision that would change the trajectory of my family’s life. It was during this time of great uncertainty that I discovered the peace that comes when you know your real identity in Christ.

Through theological reflection, I point to scriptures that will equip you with the tools you need to discover your real identity. From Adam and Eve all the way through the Gospels and Paul’s letters to the apostles, God has written a plan for you.

The Real You is an invitation for anyone ready to take the plunge into the unknown and be transformed by the Holy Spirit into their real identity.

What happens when the God of miracles doesn’t give you the miracle?

When I lost my twenty-seven-year-old, worship-leading daughter, Whitney, to an incurable cancer in her bloodstream, I was left with only tormenting grief and no miracle. Disappointments, questions, and contradictions abounded, sending me on a deeper spiritual quest to know more about the nature of God. In Surrendered and Unafraid, I take readers on the blended journey―both Whitney’s and my own―of how we came to know the God of mystery in her pain and my sorrow. 

You are in an internal war with an invisible giant who is relentlessly assaulting your thoughts.

You can deconstruct the negative thoughts that have infinltrated your mind and face your giants.

YOU CAN WIN

OVERCOME your personal mind wars.

YOU ARE IN AN INTERNAL WAR with an invisible giant who is relentlessly assaulting your thoughts, draining your energy, and keeping you from living a meaningful life. Deep down you’re a lover of God and are aware of your incredible potential, but you’ve run into an intimidating giant that has you blocked.

Negative thoughts are like invisible giants that live in the mind. Your thoughts will either strengthen or undermine the courage and confidence of your heart. They don’t carry swords and spears, but they sabotage your thinking and keep you from God’s best.

You can defeat these giants for good.

Slings and Stones looks at the classic underdog story of David and Goliath to help you see that you can be like young David, who defeated his giant. You can deconstruct the negative thoughts and attitudes that have infiltrated your mind, face down your giants, and triumphantly take hold of God’s plan for your life.
