Anointed Devotions Book

I am devoted to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am honored that He has allowed me to present my latest paperback book to you - Anointed Devotions!


This book is a labor of love and sacrifice. I have shared my daily devotionals with my audience on periscope for over 2 years now and this book is a compilation of my quiet time with Jesus during those years. I encourage each reader to dive deeply into their time with our Lord. Most of us desire a closer relationship with God, but we are not ready to make the sacrifice to do so.

The Cover

This book cover almost brings me to tears. I asked the designer for a picture of a crushed flower that represents my life being poured out like the woman with her alabaster box. It shows what it looks like when we press into God. We are wrecked, but our lives leave the fragrance of our moments with Him. Our sin is exposed and we become naked before holiness. We are undone. I did not want my picture to be a focal point. I wanted to just be found in the anointing. I often say that "I am happy just to be a part". 

If you notice, there are several flowers on the cover and they spill over to the back. This is a picture of the Church making disciples. Not all the flowers are the same. Different shapes, variations of color and size, but all yielded to the anointing. It makes a beautiful tapestry. The cover is glossy to represent the oil - the Holy Spirit who covers us all.

The Format

This is a devotional journal which means that it is not just for reading. It is to be used as a meditation tool, a reflection journal and a prayer diary. My prayer for the reader is that they hear less of my voice and more of His. My entries are scattered throughout the pages while the majority of space is for the Lord to speak to the one who is devoted to being in His presence. 

I want readers to use it in any way they like, but it is divided into 52 week sessions that can be completed in a year's time, however, the reader can begin and end whenever they choose. 


Your devotional time should not be so strict that there is no freedom for God to interrupt, neither should it be so haphazard that you do not notice if God is there at all. 

The Story

This book was truly "birthed". It was an almost three year labor process. Imagine that ladies! Ha! There were definitely some major hurdles and lots of storms. There were tears and moments when I was tempted to give up. Between the interior changes and proofreading nightmares to the unexpected cover switch, I was undone. The real story is that this book is the Lord's and He was guiding the process. I was simply the vessel that I asked to me - nothing more. When I whined about dates and missing my goals, He simply reassured me. When I cried because people where disappointing me, He never wavered. Everything was in His timing. His book, His cover, His story. And now, I get to present it all to YOU!
