The Story Behind The Book

IMG_7083.JPG

 

  • 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.
