Who Are You? There's really only one way to know!

In this blog:

Who Are You?? There's really only one way to know!

About Us!
Events Coming Up!

If somebody asked you who you are, how would you answer?  Would you say I'm a doctor, I'm a housewife, I'm a realtor, I'm a sales coach.  I'm an American, I'm a Christian.

Often people associate their identity with the role they have in the workplace, in the home or where they live.  Have you been in social setting or a networking event and someone comes up to you and asks what you do?  If we're honest, most people respond saying something like, I own such and such business or I'm the President of such and such or I'm the pastor of xyz church.  If we don't have a "fancy" title we can use, it can be awkward or even down right humiliating.  Why do we do this?  Is it because we hope to feel a tad bit better about ourselves if our "title" is something cool?   The point I'm trying to make is not ever telling someone what we do, but realizing there is a difference between our identity and the roles we have in life.

IDENTITY        VS            ROLE

Courageous                           Husband, Wife, Child
Confident                              Business Owner
Authentic                              Pastor, Chaplain
Resourceful                           Employee
Friendly                                 Christian
Influential                              Ministry Leader
Prophetic                               Prophet
Trustworthy                          Teacher                                

  1. We must READ the Word of God!
  2. We must BELIEVE what the Word of God says about us!
  3. We must APPLY the TRUTH in every area of your life!

When our forefathers came to America, they came to establish a country founded on biblical principles. They came to abolish tyranny and instill into their generation and all future generations an identity founded in Christ   Now, our nation is in crisis.  Our nation's identity is being stripped away.  Little by little, the choices we each make and the choices our government has made, is removing all evidence that we were ever a godly nation. Consequences are sure to follow.  When tragedy strikes our nation, your role could be taken from you in an instant.   You could be facing "identity" theft if you aren't grounded in the Truth of God's Word about who you are.  (If you haven't seen the Documentary - Monumental, we highly recommend it.

Several years ago, the Lord took both Ken and I out of our careers that we had for over 25 years.  Mine was forced due to health and Ken's was an act of obedience.  Who we thought we were, came to a screeching halt.  For us that was hard.  We are both doers.  We don't like to sit around, but the Lord asked us to spend this season in a holding pattern.  Many didn't understand why we weren't working or why we weren't doing full-time ministry and maybe some just thought we were being lazy.  But in reality, God was calling us to this place of rest, place of idleness (not completely) so that we could learn who we are and whose we are.  It's not about what we can do for God, though He has good things for us to do (Eph 2:10).  It's all about doing only what we see the Father doing (John 5:19)  and doing it when He asks.   We are to steward our lives in whatever season we are in! 

Something the Lord spoke to Ken during this season out of a book he read is this:  

"Working is work.  Resting is God at work!" 

About us:
With all that said, the Lord is slowly moving us out of this resting season....and is transitioning us into two new roles.  

1. Ken and I are in the process of forming an LLC (Want Insight Chaplain Services- that in itself is a God story of how He provides).  We will be "chaplains" in the marketplace.  Companies who have chaplains find their employees to be more productive, less absenteeism and overall better morale.  We will have a variety of services available including one on one time, relevant bible studies, officiating weddings and funerals, hospital visits, etc.   We were made for this! 

                                                    Listen - Love - Encourage - Pray    

2. The Lord is calling us to plant and pastor another house church.  We are excited about this new opportunity to love and serve God and others! 

Ken and I love to pray for folks who need a touch from the Lord - with words of encouragement, words of knowledge and a healing touch.  If you are someone in need, please let us know.  We also have a passion to activate and influence believers to walk in radical obedience to a fun and wonderful God!  There is just nothing like it!  

If you are interested in Ken and I coming to minister to you, your small group or church, or go on a "treasurehunt" with us, please give us a call or email.  We would be delighted to!

Prayer requests: 
The Lord is giving me some reprieve on the daily headaches.  I am thankful.  I am in high hopes of complete restoration of my health and energy.  Ken and I are trusting God day by day for provision.  I have to say that this is not an easy journey to walk out, but God's grace and faithfulness is evident.  

If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support us financially, here's how you can.  Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.
