Truth or Consequences!

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? 

I the Lord search 
the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.  Jeremiah 17:9-10ESV 

This verse is sobering for the days we are living in.  It shocks me how far we have gone as a country, as individuals from the Truth.  It is disheartening to see how blind to Truth people are and how blatant evil has become.  

Years ago,  the song A Slow Fade by Mercy Me made an impression on me.  Here's the chorus.  

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade

Little by little we've made choices that have greatly impacted our freedoms and our heartfelt worship to the Lord.  We have become complacent and status quo.  We have succumbed to thinking things are not that bad or worse, we've closed our eyes to avoid the atrocities being done.  Isn't it common to sit idly by and think that someone else will stand up and fight "this" battle? 

In 2014, the Lord asked me to start praying for Him to open blind eyes and deaf ears - and to be honest, often with the Church in mind.  The Truth has been replaced with "feel good theology".  The gospel has been watered down, overflowing with hyper grace and void of Truth.  I feel we are now experiencing the fruit of this.  We are exponentially seeing the consequences one right after the other.  

We are in the biggest battle of our lives right now and the Church must stand up! This is NO joke! We are loosing our freedoms.  And if the wrong President gets into office, we will loose EVERYTHING we've valued and have taken for granted!   This pandemic has been a trial run to see how far we will allow the "darkness" to penetrate.  Many have so willingly submitted to lockdowns, masks, closing businesses without even questioning or putting up a fight!   I'm not here to argue whether masks work or the virus is real.  I'm only saying how quickly we allowed them to shut down much of our rights and freedoms in such a short time!  

We must fight for our freedoms, we must let our voice be heard.  We must join forces with other like minded people and take our country back.  We must choose daily to follow Jesus and His ways, no matter the cost!!!   We must be a bright light to a dark and evil world!!  We must reach others for Christ!  We must make a choice to step into positions of authority and lead like Jesus!   The first step if you are not already is to pray for these areas:  Media/Entertainment, Government/Politics, Military/Police, Education,  Family, Church & the Marketplace!  These are all places of influence we the Church can affect greatly.   Don't let another day go by please!!  

Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  Matthew 5:15 

If we choose to pass the buck and keep our heads in the sand even another day, we are going to face extreme consequences that won't be reversible!   

This past week I had two visions back to back - very similar. One a picture of the United States was being flipped upside down.  The whole country was shaking.  And then I saw it slowly flip to right side up.   I saw the exact same thing with the Church.    I sensed the Lord saying we are in the shaking, we are in the upside down part right now.  Everything we know is being shaken.  That can feel very uncomfortable, but God isn't here to make us comfortable. He is here to restore holiness and godliness to the Church.  It's the Church that will bring back this country if we choose to do our part.  Read Revelations 2&3, the seven letters to the seven Churches!   Meditate on this and see how God may speak to you.   We must return to our first love!  We must rise up out of status quo living.... you know those consequences - He will vomit us out of his mouth, Revelation 3:16.

There are lots of organizations out there that you can get involved in.  Ken and I are attending a weekly meeting here in our Valley -   They are educating and equipping those who are of the same mind.  Recently the sheriff and even a judge said to one of the leaders "Where have you been all this time, the other side is being loud and demonstrative, where are your people?"  And the leaders said, I know, and we are here now!     Now is the time!  Find a local organization you can join in your area.  Get involved!  Make a difference!!!     

My prayer is that for those are fully awake, you will do your part to help bring the Church and this country back to it's foundations!  And for those that are still waking up, wake up fully!  I pray for divine wisdom, revelation and His Truth to overtake you to spread the love of Jesus to a lost and hurting world!   I pray that we can rebuild - restore - those things that have been stolen!   

Recently I heard a quote (author unknown) -  "We can do nothing without God....and God will do nothing without us."    God chooses to use us to change the world!  Will you be one He can trust? 

Be encouraged and blessed! 


Ken is still working his painting job.  It's been hard physical labor, but he is enjoying it mostly.  He gets to see much of the Valley this way...and even has had to work in central MT.    Please pray for his hours however, winter time it's difficult to keep enough "inside work".    We are still short our monthly expenses.... costs here are much higher than what we were used too.  God is faithful and He always provides! 

Michele - I am working part time remote for an insurance agent there in KC.  He was a client of mine in the mortgage business.  The job has been a huge blessing for me.  The hours are flexible so it accommodates me when I don't sleep or having a high pain day.   I am thankful for this!!    Please pray for complete healing.  It's coming!!  

We got a 2nd car finally!  God blessed us with a few generous givers and we used those gifts to save for a vehicle.  We got a 2006 Infinity FX45.  Ken saw it on Car Facts in Idaho.  We had the sales person do a few videos of the vehicle - as our 'test drive" and we bought it sight unseen. They even delivered it here to us in MT.  It has been a blessing for sure!  It has heat! Hooray!  It even came with an extra set of 4 wheels and SNOW tires which those are being put on today -  as we are expected to get 6-9" of snow this afternoon.    The car had a recall on it when we got it.  Infinity Corporate was kind enough to hire a transport company to haul the car back to Idaho for the repair and haul it back FREE of charge!!  What amazing service that is!   I'd forgotten how much I liked Infinity.  We used to have one years ago.  Thankful for this blessing and for those who were so generous to help us get it!  

We were recently asked to co-lead a new start up fellowship/church.  It has been good.  We are laying foundations and building relationships thus far.   The people are wonderful, hungry for the Lord and it's a breath of fresh air!  

We are thankful and blessed God moved us here to MT.  (ask me after winter, lol).  We have truly enjoyed the incredible beauty of the landscape here.  I don't think I'll ever get tired of the mountain views, the stunning sparkling and flowing rivers and creeks here (that's pronounced crick).  Everyone is welcoming, kind and friendly!   We have some amazing restaurants - Taste of Paris is my absolute favorite!  I love that there are so many organic farms here - from produce to meats to eggs and more and that restaurants and grocery stores actually carry these farm's products.   It's such a community feel here.  Neighbors helping neighbors everywhere you look!    

Ministry - we are anxious for God to open doors for us to find a property and get building - a retreat/refuge and equipping center.  He is definitely connecting us to the right people as many are wanting to be part of the vision!  That is so cool!    Please pray for the provision for the vision!!!!!  

Did I tell you God moved one of my best friends here?   She was coming for a visit in September.  The Lord told me that He was moving her here.  2 days later she heard the same thing.  He orchestrated a place to stay for her on our road in an RV.   She will move into someone's home mid-November for the winter months.  Thank you Daddy!  It's so nice having her so close!! 

If we can pray for you please feel free to reach out.  We are so thankful for those that continue to pray for us.   You have no idea how much that touches my heart and demonstrates God's love!  Thank YOU!

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
