About Kim

February 8, 2009

Tate 4-6-15-12Hey there . . . You got a minute? I’d love to share beyond the tightly written bio with the professional bullet points. I’d rather be more personal . . . which is why I took the picture above.

This is my view every day. Not the flowers—I only buy those on occasion. But the Bible and laptop? That’s me. Every day. You could say they’re my passion.

I love the Word of God. I became a believer at 27, over twenty years ago, and I knew next to nothing about the Bible. But over the past fifteen years, in particular, I’ve studied daily with my colored pencils . . . and coffee. Bible goes well with coffee.

I know firsthand the power of the Word to renew and transform, to heal and restore, to convict and strengthen. It does all those things and more in me. Continually. And also in me is this irresistible urge to share the wonder of this amazing truth with others.

Which is where my laptop comes in.

I can’t remember a time I didn’t write, from notebooks full of poetry and song lyrics as a schoolgirl to briefs to the court as a litigating attorney. But I couldn’t have imagined God calling me to write for Him.

I was on maternity leave with my firstborn, praying about the type of home-based business I could start, because I knew the Lord was tugging on my heart to be home with him. I took a trip to Barnes & Noble, got a book on home-based businesses, and started praying about what product I could bring to the marketplace. Then one day in the middle of church, the Lord spoke clearly to my heart—and completely redirected me. He wasn’t calling me to make widgets. People needed salvation, and He wanted me to write about my spiritual journey.

A book? I didn’t know anything about writing books, and this was before such newfangled things as blogs and Google searches. I started praying again, drove back to Barnes & Noble, and picked up, “How to Write a Book Proposal.”   Wrote my proposal and mailed out a few query letters, prepared to endure mass rejection for months.   But within a week, I had a top agent, and within a month, a publishing contract. In His graciousness, the Lord let me know in a powerful way that He was in this. More Christian Than African-American was published in 1999, and a couple months later, I left my career as an attorney to be home with my son and baby girl.

And to write. Trust me, I was excited about having more hours to write.

God has a sense of humor.

He redirected me once again. Writing got moved to the back burner as the Lord let me know this was a season to simply be home with my little ones. But during naptimes, I found my passion—studying the Bible inductively. My life was being transformed daily, and I had this ever-growing desire for three things—to know God more deeply, to live full-on for Him, and to be used by Him to ignite a passion in others for His Word.

Meanwhile, my agent wanted me to consider writing fiction. She was starting a new publishing company—Walk Worthy Press—and based on my memoir, thought I should give it a try.

“Fiction?” I said. “Nah, I can’t see it.”

I just knew . . . if I wrote another book, it would be nonfiction. Something to help women grow spiritually. Maybe one day a Bible study. Definitely not fiction.

A couple years later, the Lord put a woman on my heart. I could see her clearly, her family, her issues, her need to be changed by the truth of the Word. And I couldn’t shake her.

“Fiction, Lord? Are you serious? But I don’t know how to write fiction.”

The faith-walk started again. Writing started again, along with those writing prayers.

And I got my first laptop.

That woman with the issues became Treva in Heavenly Places, my first novel . . . published by Walk Worthy Press in 2008. And as God would have it, there was a cast of women in a bible study in the novel, being changed by the book of Ephesians.

From the time I began writing Heavenly Places in 2004 until now, my laptop has stood open with some work in progress on the screen—even as I’ve homeschooled during that same time.

Following the Lord has led to paths I couldn’t have foreseen. I went on to write several novels for Thomas Nelson, which led to speaking with Women of Faith in 2010 and 2011. I’ve been able to share my journey on The 700 Club, The Harvest Show, Janet Parshall’s America, The Chris Fabry Show, and others. And recently, I led women’s ministry at my local church for close to two years, teaching original bible studies weekly.

At present—so many years later—I’m finally working on that nonfiction book. At my laptop. With my Bible open.

I have had seasons of trial, disappointment, and heartache, but by God’s grace, my desire for those three things remains—to know Him more deeply, to live full-on for Him, and to be used by Him to ignite a passion in others for His Word.

What else about me? I was born and raised in the D.C. metropolitan area, went kicking and screaming to Madison, Wisconsin, and was blind-sided there by the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ, who saved me and changed me forever.

My husband Bill and I have been married almost twenty-three years, and those little ones are now older teens, my firstborn in his first year of college. St. Louis has been home for more than a decade.

If you’ve stuck with this till the end, thank you! I hope you stick around even longer here on the blog. We’ve covered a lot of ground over the years. Shared a lot of stories. Encouraged, prayed, cried, and rejoiced . . . all in an effort to color our lives in Christ—to fix our eyes on Him and glorify Him no matter where we are or what we do. You’ll see a button to the right of the page where you can subscribe and join us. I’m hoping you do!

      Dear Kim,
      I do love your video teaching through Ephesians and now through James. I began watching you when searching for ways others study the Scripture and watched several of your presentations, including your testimony. I have been encouraged by what you have shared and by your thorough presentations. I have some questions since I am currently looking for a DVD-study for my women’s Bible study group and am considering Cling. Do you provide a study guide where the women can do their homework before watching each message? What is the cost? I haven’t been able to find it, nor the number of sessions. I love the idea of your journal for writing insights because I have done this for years. I have ordered a copy of your book and the DVD for myself, and also two of your novels. Thank you for helping me with my inquiry.

    I just read this “about” page and I LOVE IT! In fact it brought a tear or two to my eye. Made me want to celebrate all that God has done, is doing and will do in your life for His Name Sake and for your good. I just want to give you a great big hug! I think the world of you!!!! God bless you GOOD and may His Name be glorified marvelously through you and your life.

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate February 9, 2016 at 1:17 pm

      Oh, I’m so thankful you love it, Debbie! I was hoping it wasn’t too long. ;-) But reflecting on all of that truly moved me to praise the Lord as well! Isn’t it something when we look back at all He has done in our lives? Things that made no sense a decade ago have (at least a little) clarity now. I’m receiving that cyber hug! You know I think the world of you too, my sister. XoXo

    I have been praying for a while how to be able to memorize Scripture so I came across your video yesterday and really impacted my heart. I said Lord: Make me like her, then this morning I visited your site and as I am reading I know the Lord directed me to you, your bio spoke to my heart. I thank you for sharing and I would like to make your goal of serving the Lord my goal.Thank you again, you are such a blessing and I look forward to getting your books. For now, studying the book of Ephesians.

      Araceli, I’m so thankful the video on memorizing Scripture was helpful to you. I know as this is your heart’s desire, the Lord will lead you step by step in what and how much to memorize. Take it slow and cherish the journey itself. It’s so rich! Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet words of encouragement. Enjoy the book of Ephesians….that’s so rich too! :-)

    Good Morning Kim,
    This is the first time I have ever left a comment on line. I found you about a month ago on YouTube through a link on the Our Daily Bread Site. Our Heavenly Father gives us just what we need, when we need it. Your testimony has been medicine for my soul my spiritual sister. From the moment I saw you and heard you I felt a connection. To see that you live in Saint Louis, the city I was raised in is fascinating. I don’t quite remember anyone touching my heart the way your words on God’s Word and His promises have touched me. I’m in a season of uncertainty, debt and joblessness. But God is able to do abundantly more than I can imagine. May God’s blessings be with you always. Hallelujah to His precious name. At the name Jesus, every knew shall bow and every tongue confess He is Lord. The more I talk about Him the better I feel. Have a blessed day filled with laughter and love. Try to stay cool in the brutal heat wave affecting the region :)

      Tracy, I have been deep into two writing projects this summer and am so sorry that I missed your comment. And wow, your first time leaving a comment online…. I don’t even words for how God amazes me. To find me online and feel that my words are connecting…..only Him! I am so grateful. And your faith speaks volumes as you are in a challenging season, yet also giving God praise and believing His word. That’s so awesome. You are encouraging your own soul, which calls to mind some of my favorite Psalms. Praise God! I’m so thankful you stopped by and hope to connect more. Many blessings, my dear sister.

  • Reply Alyssa August 20, 2016 at 2:09 am

    Good morning, Kim. I have just (well about 3 hours ago) seen a video of you on youtube for the first time. I had never heard of you before. Your videos are very enlightening, inspiring, eye opening, and informative. After watching the videos, I had to do some soul searching. I have recently give my life to God, and I have gotten a little frustrated because I want to learn more about the Word of God and more than knowing the Word, I want to know Him not know of Him.
    I am new to marking in my Bible. I have been online and on pinterest getting ideas for charts or other things that my help in that area. Thank you so very much for taking the time to make the videos. I know they have helped me, and I am sure they have helped many other women.
    I can not wait to learn more about the Word. It is just so overwhelming, because it does not seem like I will ever learn it the way that I want to. Yet, I have to remember I am new to it, so I know that it will take time. If you have any advice on where to get started it will be greatly appreciated. I hope that you continue with your videos, and I hope you are abundantly blessed more than you can possibly contain.

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate September 8, 2016 at 4:11 pm

      Hi Alyssa! First, I’m rejoicing with you in giving your life to the Lord recently. That’s such a praise! And I’m also praising God for your hunger to know Him. The fact that you’re frustrated about wanting to know more about the Word is awesome! :) Truly. It shows that the Spirit of God is alive in you and stirring up that passion. It can indeed seem overwhelming because the Bible is a big book, and when you’re hungry, you want to read it all, right now. :) But yes, remember that this is all new and that every part of this new journey is precious and amazing. One step at a time…. Take your time and ENJOY getting to know the Lord as He reveals Himself to you verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book. Linger where He moves you to linger. In terms of where to get started, if you’re asking which book, hmm…. Since it’s your goal to get through the entire Bible, I’d probably start with the beginning, in Genesis. Some people read through the Bible in a year, and so they read a little OT, a little NT, etc. each day. But if you’re studying inductively (marking and such), you won’t be flying through like that. Hope to see you here again….I’d love updates on your journey. :) Wishing you many blessings, my sister!

  • Reply Wendy Scott-Penson October 28, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    You are challenging me! Ahhh! It’s exciting and frustrating and scary all at once. A friend of mine encouraged me to check you out because of our work with the Bible translation movement:
    I watched your video with tips for memorizing Scripture. I did not expect to hear God challenging me directly through you, but that is exactly what happened. I have already been memorizing passages of Scripture. I even memorized Psalm 91, which is an awesome chapter of the Bible, but a whole book of the Bible??? Now I know I have to do it. Why, because I’ve been talking to God about how to get closer to Him. I want Enoch’s story, from Genesis 5, to be my story. He spent his life walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared because God took him. Now, through you, God has given me a way to take a next step to get closer to Him. And I have to do it. I’m kind of intimidated, but I know it’s what I have to do. Thank you for doing what you’re called to do. You have really inspired me.
    By the way, how did you get your hair to do what it’s doing?

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate January 18, 2017 at 9:23 am

      Wendy, I love this–> “I want Enoch’s story…to be my story.” Amen! I do find scripture memorization to be a wonderful way to walk closely with God. It’s not just rote memorization; it’s writing eternal truths onto your heart that are God-breathed. So, so rich! I pray the Lord’s richest blessings upon you on this journey. (And I don’t know how I missed replying to this for so long….please forgive me!)

      Oh, my hair….I twist it while it’s damp, using a mix of products. This is how it looks when I untwist it. :)

    Hi Kim, I just want to say thank you for your obedience. I thought that I found “Though I Stumble ” but God led me to it as He often does in my life. This season in my life has been one of growth and healing. He is so faithful even when I’m not. I do want to live out my purpose. God’s will, His way! You are such an inspiration! Thank you!

  • Reply A Seriously Grateful Sister!!! :) May 10, 2017 at 2:44 am

    Hey Kim! I am not leaving my name because I have to share something kinda personal and I don’t want to embarrass my ex-husband. (I left this testimony on one of your YouTube videos, but I am feeling so grateful right now, I have to leave it again!) So, for years I have been trying to finish my book, and last summer I thought I would complete it, but the draft wasn’t as well written as it should have been, and I had to start again. A few months after that, I discovered my husband had several anti-monogamy moments, and our marriage didn’t survive. (No acrimony, but still a hard time.) After we separated, I started writing again and felt a bit far from my dream, but pressed anyway. During that time I found “Though I Stumble” on Amazon. I was so excited because it was fiction that glorified God. Some of the current Christian fiction books have some church talk, but no holiness. I’m not saying that the lead characters shouldn’t make mistakes, but the writers don’t seem to categorize them as mistakes. Sex and profanity is normal between Christians and it’s a bit disheartening for me. So, when I read your book with human mistakes, but Godly standards, I was elated! And I was encouraged! I felt like the Lord was telling me, look what I did for Kim, keep pressing!! So I did and as I’m writing at 12:44 am, I just have one more chapter to go!!! Yippee!!! I still have to proof the book and send to the editor. But Praise God for the progress. So, I’m saying thank you for letting God display your life and share your gifts. They were a beacon for me!! God bless!!!! :)

WordPerfect has stopped sending notifications again, and I just thought I had no comments. lol I’m going to read and respond in order. :) Okay, reading the whole message and WOW….so grateful the Lord used Though I Stumble to encourage you! First, I’m a little shocked by what’s out there…..what you describe, I had no idea! “I felt like the Lord was telling me, look what I did for Kim, keep pressing!!”…..YES, it is ALL the Lord giving me grace and direction. So AMEN, if He can do that for me, He can surely do it for you! Rejoicing with you in the progress! Thank you so much for sharing this with me (and please forgive my slow response). I’m smiling at that the Lord is doing in your life! (Okay, on to the next message….)

    Hello Unofficial Mentor!

    I’m laughing because I don’t know if you’ll ever find this. I think I’m buried somewhere on your website! But yet I just have to keep you posted because, as I shared earlier, God really used your life as an example of a Godly author. You’ve inspired me so much!! So, the newest scoop is that I got my book back from the editor and all is well!!! Yippee!!! She had a lot of changes, but they were primarily grammatical (I used the wrong dash and wrong tenses). So, I’m stoked and formatting the interior to upload to Amazon. Also, I have to write the back cover. Also, soon, I’ll plan my first book signing as soon as I upload my manuscript. God has really redeemed this girl!!! :) Hallelujah!!!

    And, the last 1 Samuel study about Israel wanting a king was amazing!!! Looking forward to the new chapter!! :)

I’m truly excited for you, not only for the journey but for all that God is doing in you as well. Amen, Hallelujah for God’s redeeming power! And thank you so much for studying 1 Samuel with me….that means so much! SO thankful for these updates. Hugs & Blessings to you, sis!

      • Reply A Seriously Grateful Sister!!! :) June 8, 2017 at 8:16 pm

        Hey Unofficial Mentor!!
        You found me!!! Hahaaa!!! Thank you for your reply, and please don’t worry if you miss my messages, I know you have to be swamped especially with the new dream God put in your heart!! ;) Yes, I am stalking…I mean following you on YouTube! Ha! Ok, for real, I’m not stalking; I just truly love my weekly 1 Samuel studies!!! (JCGIRLOOO1)

        And the scoop is that after I got my book back, I had some of the ladies from my Life Group read the opening Bible study before the novella, and the consensus was that the Bible study was too dense. And these are seasoned ladies, so if it didn’t breathe enough for them, I know everyone else would be scrambled eggs trying to see where I was going.

        I had momentary sadness (I really thought the study was jamming! Ha!) But then I believe it was God that put it in my heart to just drop the study altogether and let the novella stand on its own. So, I asked my editor what she thought about it, and she said the novella read better without the study. So, I scratched it and just left it as a novella. I think I included the study because I was insecure about my novella. I wasn’t sure if my writing was clear enough to stand on its own. But, I got a thumbs up from the editor, and I sent it to Amazon, and I just received my first draft today!!! YEEEEHAAAAA!!!

        My first book signing is on July 1st!!!! One of the ladies from my former Connect Group is hosting me.

        I remember sitting on my floor in Chapter Fifteen with many chapters to go asking God to help press on to finish, and now God did it!!!

        And once again, your novel was my example. A Godly book with human situations with Jesus the unashamed answer!!! Thank you again!! Your life was God’s tool to give me hope!!! How cool is that!!! :)

        God bless!

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate August 21, 2017 at 10:16 am

      Hey there! Congratulations on publishing your first novel! I’m probably the last person you want to turn to for marketing insight. ;-) I honestly have no discernible marketing plan. I pray as I write, pray as I release the book, pray that God would impact the hearts of those who read…. Whatever God does after that, I can only give Him praise. But I do have to note that in 2014, I thought I was done with fiction because my contract with a major publisher wasn’t renewed. (I did a YouTube video about that earlier this month.) I only say that to say….again, all glory to God for the ways in which He is now working. From a practical standpoint, I enjoy social media (while trying not to get too distracted by it), so I definitely utilize Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube to get the word out when I release a book and interact with readers. Hope that helps!

  • Reply TIkisha Morris August 22, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    WOW Kim, reading your bio just made me want to sit on the floor (my favorite spot to be with The Lord) and just see what He has to say this evening. I had NO CLUE about your resume when I first stumbled upon you on Periscope. I just knew, that your love for God and your excitement for The Word drew me right in! It was a heart that I wanted, but with so much rejection plaguing my life at the time, that hope felt like sand through my fingers. But I tuned in regularly because you made me see what was POSSIBLE. The way you shared The Word from such a relatable place encouraged me to push past that rejection to the thrown of God for healing.

    God bless you and thank you for being obedient to the shift of God for ME! (yeah that was a bit selfish LOL)

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate September 24, 2017 at 7:25 pm

      Tikisha, this truly warms my heart and I’m so thankful to God. It amazes me how FAITHFUL He is! Praise God that you were encouraged to push through that place of rejection to find the healing God has for you. That time on Periscope was so special and the fellowship so unique and real. I thank God that He connected us! Thank you so much for sharing this with me. Blessings to you!

    I have recently read four of your books and I love, love, love them!! Your spiritual insight is amazing and I learn so much from reading them. I am from a small southern town in Georgia, so I was surprised just now to read that you are not from the South. Your Hope Springs could be any small town in the South. Also, although I am white, I can totally relate to the family because I come from a large family and my cousins are my best friends. I’ve read Stumble, If I believe, and Color of Hope and I am about to buy the one about Treva. I literally sobbed finishing Color of Hope ( which I started last night and finished between church services today) because as a high-school teacher, I have had “Sams” in my classes. I love your message of racial unity because that’s such an issue today in our country. I was so happy that Marcus and Charley ended up together at the end. Your romances are wonderful; your storylines are realistic, your family dynamics are true to life, and your Christian messages are doctrinally sound and timely for us Americans. Please don’t stop writing! From a new and true fan:)

    • Reply Kim Cash Tate September 18, 2017 at 4:20 pm

      Lanette! Wow, this blessed me so much! First, so nice to meet you. :) And THANK YOU for reading those books and taking the time to share such sweet encouragement. Truly, I’m blown away by your words and so thankful to God. I smiled when you said you were surprised to read that I’m not from the South. I didn’t grow up in the South (although, people tell me I technically did, since Maryland is below the Mason-Dixon line :)), but I spent every summer in Spring Hope, North Carolina with family. That’s where the title Hope Springs came from, and the inspiration to write about a big family with cousins who are great friends (as I had). I was just with them last month at our family reunion in fact. :) Thank you so much again. My heart is uplifted. Oh, and I’m definitely writing…..deep into book #3 of the Promises of God series. SO wonderful to meet you and blessings to you!

    Hello Kim,

    I just found one of your videos on YouTube. This has truly blessed me today and just to know your story empowers me to continue living for God. I’m inspired. Thank you for showing me that I can be a success living full-on for God.

      Praise God, Brooke! I’m so thankful to God for using the videos in that way. Blessings to you as you live full-on for Him! :)

    Hi Kim,

    I first want to thank you for being use by God and for putting in the time and energy to be relatable. I came across your video yesterday titled, “The Power In Keeping Quiet”. The title in itself stopped me in my track. I wasn’t looking for Christian videos at that particular time. So when it appeared, it stopped me in my tracks because I’m living that right now. I decided a couple of months ago to shut my mouth on everything and all subjects in my life. I didn’t know why but I realized I started experiencing Peace!!!. I’m the type to give a sensible and seasoned and timely comment, but noticed they/I were not being appreciated or respected. I usually don’t care what people think of me but as I always tell my kids, ” there’s a time and a place for everything”. Obviously I was operating out of Gods will! Hence I went silenced and will speak when God tells me to offer advise or comment.
    Thank you for your videos and now I’m interested in reading your books in this quiet time. Love you bible study videos, they are Chock full of Nuggets!!!

      Sheilah, I’m so thankful that God used that video in such a timely way in your life. He is so faithful! Thank you so much for sharing this with me, and for your words of encouragement. Blessings to you!

    Thank you so much for all the videos you share, I decided to fast for 21days and I was praying to God to guide me what scripture and book should I read which would speak to me, He directed me to your video Cling, I have been glued to it and have completed chap 28 and waiting for more, I’m connected to you on youtube as well but just thought of writing to you on this page. Kim, I have lived 42 years of my life away from God doing my things and worshipping other Gods, as I live in India in spite of being born in a Christian home I got married to a Hindu man since now I am divorced and a single parent of a teenager I actually felt life slipping out of my hand when God touched my life in a way I could have never imagined. I spend hours and hours reading,worshipping and watching sermons, I’m actively involved in my church and have also been baptised along with my daughter, I have faced rejection and humiliation, but now I know my identity and whose I’am that matters. Its been an amazing journey so far and I’m looking forward for more adventure to this new life with Jesus. Kim, writing a book is something God has placed on my heart and I’ve started writing as well, I’m not highly educated or skilled but I know God is, and when He steps in nothing is impossible, so please keep me in your prayers. I have watched your video last night and I was awake till 4 a.m as it was so encouraging to see how God guided you into web series and filmmaking, so happy for you, looking forward to more videos. I will be writing a blog as well about my life before I met Jesus and after, I hope it helps the ladies who are relying on other sources rather than the Creator Himself. Stay blessed!! Praying for you

      Rashmi, thank you so much for sharing some of your story. Praise God for the way He intervened in your life and for grounding you firmly in your faith. I’m rejoicing with you in His faithfulness! Praying God’s blessings as you minister to others. So glad to be connected, my sister. Blessings to you!

    Good morning Kim!
    To say that I’ve been blessed by your studies would be an understatement. I truly look forward to opening my bible, sipping on a cup of tea and studying with you. The word going forth just truly edifies my spirit. I haven’t felt this encouraged and inspired in such a long time. I’m sure you’re quite busy but I hope that you’re able to continue creating uploads. Even the short inspirational videos encourage me and strengthen my walk with God. I’m enjoying them so much that I’m concerned I’ll run out soon. I normally start my day with one before heading to work and it just prepares my heart and takes me out of my head and gives me something to bless others with. Truly inspiring! May God bless you richly and continue to use you as the mighty vessel He has called you to be. Lifting you and your family in prayer.

      Robin, I am so very blessed by this… To know that the Lord is using the studies/videos in that way encourages my soul. I so appreciate that you’d take that time to share this with me. (And yes, my writing schedule makes it difficult, but I do want to add more videos! :)) Thank you so much for your sweet encouragement and for your prayers. Blessings to you!

    Wasn’t sure how to get a hold of you but are you able to suggest how I would explain to my teenager daughter that going to a haunted house is not something that a young Christian young lady should be doing and she should be going a different direction then her friends???

    Hello Kim, I just discovered you today on the YouTube video about memorizing Scripture. Then I enjoyed watching several more videos, and found your website. I love your love for God’s Word. I love your ability to help others apply His Word. I’ve been doing Inductive Bible study for about 18 years, and am fully convinced there is no better method for Bible study. But application has always been the hardest part for me. So thank you for your obedience to God in doing what He asks and helping so many others. You have encouraged me today!

    At the beginning of the month my best-friend of 6 years turned bf of 9 months ended our relationship without a explanation. I’m still shocked, disappointed, scared, nervous, hurt, and upset. I’ve reached out to him numerous times wanting answers and yet he won’t give them. I had 4 simple questions I needed answered for my own closure and peace of mind and yet he refuses to respond. I stumbled upon your books as I laid in bed heartbroken and confused (if I remember correctly… I’m in a fog most days) but ‘Though I Stumble’ for some reason captured my attention. I saw a little of myself in each character but the message was so for me during this season. Crying @ 3 am I was up reading this novel. You are gifted and I thank you so much!!

    Hi, Kim!

    Just jumped over here from Desiring God and couldn’t quit clicking around your site! Congrats on finding just what it was that God had for you to do and sticking with it all these years. Congrats hardly even seems like the right word…but, there it is!

    I’m 27 now. I’ve been walking with God for more than half of my life, but my 20’s have really taken me places where I had to decide which way I was going to go. Things recently got turned upside down and I’m still waiting to see where everything will land. Some days are harder than others. Sometimes, it’s my own sin making things difficult. I know that God gets His people through and I’ve found that life is all about believing that.

    So…I guess I just wanted to thank you for writing. For being a faithful follower of God. For being passionate about His Word and using the opportunities He’s given you to put that into story form. I look forward to reading more of your work and talking about the lives He’s granted us!

    I liked your article, ”YOU NEED TO END THAT FRIENDSHIP” in desiring God, and led by God to visit your blog.

  • Reply TBrown March 5, 2018 at 10:36 am

    I’ve not read any of your books yet, but I plan to start Though I Stumble in a couple of months. Last year kicked off what I call my rabbit-hole obsession with Christian fiction. It started with Kimberla Lawson Roby and rolled into Victoria Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley. I was pleasantly surprised when Amazon suggested I follow you! I spent the better part of this weekend exploring your site, blog and YouTube channel. Much of what you’ve written speaks to me. Inspires me.

    My relationship with God has been interesting. I’m 43. Grew up in the church that my grandfather built and where my uncle preached. Being that close to it is challenging, to say the least, for a child to build a healthy relationship with God while seeing daily that those who claim to be so Christ-filled rarely practice what they preach. As an adult, I know better. But I don’t think I’ve ever been able to truly rebuild those shaky foundations. I have tried and each time led to disaster lol.

    It’s interesting.

    I know God exists. I just feel like he is usually an ocean away.

    Anyhoo… I look forward to reading your books!
