She’s Finally Here and She’s Beautiful!

No she’s not a baby.  Well, not in the literal sense, but I certainly feel like I birthed one!

I’d like you to meet my new book…
HarrisKindleI’m so excited she’s here!  This is not the book I set out to write way back in October 2014, but it’s the book God wanted to write through me, to me.  And ultimately to every woman who could relate.

He wanted me, and all women, to know being a daddy’s girl isn’t a concept for a select few girls/women who happen to have that dynamic with their fathers.  Any woman can be DADDY’s Girl when she enters into relationship with God the Father or DADDY God through Christ, His Son.  It’s a position that knows no age limit, enjoyed forever.

This one was tough to write until I tasted the freedom that grew with every page.  I’m such a private person, it’s a wonder I let these words exist outside my mind much less saw it through to publishing!  But at the end of the day, this book, is bigger than me.  It’s about my DADDY God, His love for His daughters, and the lengths He wants us to enjoy it.

The book is available in paperback on Amazon and on Kindle.  See the homepage sidebar for a link.  Regardless of your relationship with your father, there’s nothing like being a DADDY’s Girl.  Get it for yourself and “girls” teen aged and up who find intimacy with DADDY God challenging.

I’m in the process of developing a study guide to accompany it.  If you would like to stay in the know, sign up for my newsletter, The Grapevine (details in the sidebar).  Thank you so much for all of your support of my blog and this project.

I’m leaping forward this year and I’m glad you’re a part of it!

With love,

Can We Have It Both Ways?

At age 75 Abraham’s father died.  All his father’s household and possessions would fall into Abraham’s care.  Being the custom, Abraham would’ve understood his duty.

However, God called Abraham to leave all he knew.  To leave the comfortable, the familiar; all the people, customs, and responsibilities he’d been prepared for, to follow Him.  No details, just, “Walk with me and I’ll show you.”

You know what else He called Abraham away from?  From dependence on self and all he knew, to walk with a faithful God into what He knew.  God called Abraham to a life depending on what God would supply him.  God called Abraham to live by grace through faith and totally changed his life…and ours.

He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit…He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
Galatians 3:14, 16, NIV

A life of faith in Christ is, by definition, no confidence in our flesh (understanding, effort, or abilities).
