New eBook: Lift Up Your Voice

Writing another book wasn’t on my radar for the fall of 2017. But God had other plans. I’m happy to announce the release of my new eBook, Lift Up Your Voice: 21 Daily Devotions for Your Daniel Fast (available on Kindle or NOOK). As I prayed about a theme for the January 2018 Online Daniel […]

January 2018 Daniel Fast: Lift Up Your Voice

In January 2012, I held the first online Daniel Fast through my website. More than 2,000 people signed up to participate. Since then, the fast has grown into an annual event for nearly 6,000 believers from around the world. The Lord continues to call men and women to this three-week fast, and every year God […]

January 2018 Daniel Fast Begins Soon

It’s hard to believe that soon we’ll be saying good-bye to 2017 and hello to 2018. Even though we’re still several weeks away from January, it’s a good idea to begin thinking about how to start the New Year off right. I believe the best way to kick off 2018 is through the January 2018 Online […]

Pack for the January 2018 Daniel Fast

When my husband and I go rock climbing, we spend at least an hour the day before we leave getting everything ready. Justin takes care of the equipment – the rope, harnesses, carabiners, quick draws, chalk bags, and shoes. My job is pack the food and make sure we have plenty of water.  If we plan […]

Side Effects on the Daniel Fast

A question I frequently receive from readers is, “Will I experience side effects on the Daniel Fast?” Yes, you probably will. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Not all side effects are negative in nature. For example, during the January 2017 Online Daniel Fast, one woman (a diabetic), emailed to share how the fast decreased her […]

Call to Prayer for President Donald Trump

As I drove my daughters to school this morning, I turned on our local Christian radio station. The DJ was explaining how he had accidentally left his microphone on during the last break, which broadcast his discussion with a co-worker to thousands of listeners. The conversation was about a disturbing article he “just happened” to […]

The Daniel Fast and Lent 2017

As an author, I’m a big fan of words. I enjoy looking up definitions to understand terms in a deeper way. So when I began writing this blog post about Lent 2017, of course, I had to do research on “lent.” The word “lent” comes from the Old English term “lencten,” which means “spring.” On the surface, the meaning seems nice and sweet. After all, […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As you celebrate this Valentine’s Day, remember there is One who loves you most of all. “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his […]
