This post is a bit of a departure from my norm, but I thought it might be fun to do something a little different for a change — just an update on projects we’re doing at Full Gospel Family Publications and our life in general.
First, the mp3 downloads. We put together a CD set of our seminar, Growing in the Prophetic, a few months ago. I’m very happy with the info we’ve provided in that set — but I’m even happier to now make it available to you at a greater savings as an mp3 download. Shipping costs have skyrocketed in the last couple of years, especially for international shipping, and I get concerned about that. I want to keep our materials affordable. If you like a CD set in nice packaging, the set is still quite reasonable — $30.00 in the U. S. But if you aren’t concerned about packaging, do the mp3 version for $19.00 — and that price goes for wherever you live in the world.
We’ve also got both CD and mp3 download versions of The Intercessor Manual Audiobook (CD $30.00 in U. S.; mp3 $19.00 worldwide) and The Baptism in the Spirit: Why You Need It & How to Get It (CD $9.00 in U. S.; mp3 $5.50 worldwide). Find them all at Full Gospel Family’s Audio Resource page.
Then there is my new book, Before Whom We Stand: The Everyman’s Guide to the Nature of God. Getting this done is pretty much consuming all my energy right now! A lot of believers don’t have a good handle anymore on Who God is, and it’s time we changed that. This is a short, to-the-point book that talks about God’s character and how He consequently relates to us. I discuss God’s nature as the Trinity and then break down the specific roles of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It’s conversational, not theologically intimidating, but definitely biblically anchored with plenty of Scripture to support each point. It’s a great resource for newer believers, an effective tool for introducing the Lord to your non-believing friends, and mature Christians will get some nuggets out of it as well.
We’re in the final stages of editing right now. Watch for Before Whom We Stand to be out as both a print and ebook in September, with the audio version coming shortly thereafter.
Sometimes people want to know a little more about our personal life, so here are our current events:
My husband Paul and I just became empty nesters this year, and it has been hard! We homeschooled both our daughters from the cradle through high school, and enjoyed every minute of having them with us. They are both a joy.
Our older daughter and her family have been pastoring a church plant in Louisville, Kentucky for a few years now. We only get to see them a couple of times a year, BUT there are those 3-hour phone conversations every week to keep us up to date and make the separation bearable. (But we’re going to go visit very soon, and we’re looking forward to that.)
Some of you may not know it, but I’ve done some humor writing along the way. I don’t have much time for it, so it doesn’t happen often right now. But our daughter Hannah regularly writes her own humor blog about family life. She is a chip off the old block, when it comes to writing funny stuff. If you are curious, you’ll find her at ByHannahDavis. Warning: you might get addicted to following her.
In January, our younger daughter flew our coop to become a student at Forerunner Music Academy (International House of Prayer) in Kansas City. Having our baby leave home has been more traumatic than I anticipated. I keep busy with prayer and writing for you so that I won’t sit around boo-hooing all the time. (I’m kidding … but just a little.) We’re so happy to see her blossoming into a beautiful woman of God.
Paul and I also keep busy with the prayer group we lead and doing prayer workshops here and there.
So that’s a smidgen of our lives right now. I’ll get back to writing in my regular vein as soon as I get this book done!
