The Story Behind The Book
As I shared my story, God started to have people tell me I should write a book and it would help people’s faith
This happened everywhere I went for 4 years!
I knew it was God, but focused on my sense of inadequacy, sense of lack of qualifications, and fear of writing it all….
I finally obeyed. The Lord told me “Obey, WRITE THE BOOK, start typing”
Ran into acquaintance who said he needed the first 50 pages for himself right away
I warned him it was raw, like dropped pizza
He sent it to “an editor friend of his” --- she wrote to me, and said “take yourself seriously, you have a story to tell that will help many!”
I type 83wpm. Words came out of me like water. I could barely keep up!
Initially I wondered if I could produce 50 pages. In two years had 300 pages!
I put it all on my dining table, got on my knees, and prayed, “Here it is, You run with it please Lord, I don’t know what to do.”
Meanwhile, God had been speaking to two women about me for 6 weeks. He told them to help me get it published.
They initially fought it, but after weeks the strong nudges wouldn’t let up, so they obeyed.
Book was produced, edited, re-edited by me repeatedly until God gave the okay
Published in April 2010. I prayed: "Lord, in each page, please rise up with Your faithfulness and HEAL lives and bodies."
I commented to God, wouldn’t it be something if Pastor Bayless would read it…..
Fathers Day 2010, Pastor Bayless Conley spoke about it in all 4 weekend services
Cottonwood Bookstore, HWHM became fastest selling, most-asked-for book on healing in its 25 yr history!
16 months later man from Egypt – came to America to find me and ask “May I translate your book into Arabic? My goal is to produce 5,000 copies.”
Money ($10,000) provided by God in less than 24 hours, a true miracle!
2012 Translation completed and 5000 copies distributed in 7 middle east nations
2012 God had me meet Martha. She translated HWHM into Spanish
2014 book was released in Spanish
I was told “Holy Spirit is CLAD to this book”
Letters come in: people tell of salvations, faith catapulted, increased hunger for Word, 2 people healed while reading the book!
2014 I met Andrew Bills, within a few months I was teaching a healing series for videos. When Holy Spirit Broadcasting was launched, I was one of the first… and the program HIS HEALING WORD was launched.
2018 testimonies continue to come in as HIS WORD HEALED ME touches lives.
