With gratitude and thanksgiving, in awe of His majesty and loving kindness always.

To the daughter of my heart. “She is as Rebekah.”

Genesis 24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.

For my mother who gives her all. She is the shining Proverbs 31 woman.

For my sister-in-law who exemplifies the quiet, gentle Spirit of the Lord which He defines as beauty.

For my niece and nephews who are as their namesake.

1 Samuel 2:1 And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.

Numbers 14:24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

Deuteronomy 31:3 The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, and he will destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: and Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said.

As always, to my brothers: Bret is Benjamin; Craig, one of David’s mighty men; and to my folks, Donald and Carolyn, who are primo support in many ways – known and unknown.

To my friends, extended family and faith family near and far, who believe in the creative kingdom work for which I am a conduit.

For the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit without whom there would be no walking by the Spirit. The Way, the Truth, and the Life!


“You are everything I created you to be and so much more.”

I am not certain where I was or what I was doing at the time I heard this endearment. I do remember being thankful that I love the Lord my God with all my heart and continue to seek more of Him daily. Thank you, Papa God for your faithfulness.

This endearment served as the impetus for the title of this book, You Are MORE.

We can each be “more” as we continue to press in and seek His face, not just His hand, and allow His refining in the fire.

We come alone, we go home alone, but are never truly alone. His presence permeates. His glory and majesty awe.

I have eternal gratitude for the gift of time to draw close, walk beside and sit at His knee knowing this time is but a prelude to the ever after glory time that continues on.
