Let’s face it. Life is hard and full of storms. We can’t escape them because they are inevitable.
My artist friend Staci Frenes, has written a song, Storms. I had to listen to it several times before I could catch the real message of the song. It’s because most songs about storms we hear direct us to find comfort and hope in a storm. I love those kinds of songs.
But I found Staci’s song different in that it is an invitation to not fear the storms in life but rather invite them.
I wish you storms,
the kind that break you and make you,
more tender than before.
The song goes on to talk about surrendering to everything in the storm because there is a purpose. Beauty can emerge from difficult places in life.
Storms threaten to break us or change us for the better. Sometimes they do both!
I was in this very type of storm that broke me and transformed my life. The darkness gave way to a deeply intimate relationship with God.
I learned what it meant to stand strong in a storm when life rages all around. Jesus became the one sure anchor to hold onto. And yet it brought me to the place I am today and I am grateful.
Which brings me to my invitation to you…
Part of my story of the storm I encountered has landed in my latest book, Anchored: Leading Through the Storms. I’ve lived most of my life in roles of ministry and leadership. My desire in telling my own story and the stories of others, is to bring a message of hope to other ministry leaders and influencers of how to stand strong in adversity and keep your integrity.
Anchored is a book that will equip all believers with biblical and leadership principles necessary to maintain influence and courageously remain anchored to the Rock-Jesus Christ.
I would be so honored if you would consider praying about joining the Anchored Book Influencers Team.
Although it will require some strategy to get the message out, I promise you we will also have some fun!
Spaces are limited, and if you are interested check out:
You can find all the details and fill out a brief application to be considered for the Anchored Dream Team.
My publisher will be announcing the Anchored Influencers Team on February 12th. And a few days later you will receive an advance copy in the mail before the release date on March 19th.
If you can’t join me, you can participate in the party online when you see a post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Just sharing a post or two helps get the word out.
I will also be doing a series on my blog with free resources on this topic so stay tuned!
