Several years ago, Father began to speak to our hearts that we were merchandising the anointing by ‘selling’ merchandise on our website. He said, “Stop it! Stop trusting in the world’s weaponry of sales of merchandise for ministry finances.” At the time, the ministry continually struggled to make ends meet. Father always sustained us, but there was a deep work He wanted to do in our hearts regarding finances and fully trusting Him and His ability to provide for us. He specifically told us that if He gave us something to write or record that the message belonged to Him, not us! Therefore, we were to just put the message out there and not expect to gain anything by selling His message! After all, that’s what […]
I’ve thought many times about how different my life would be if I’d given up when I wanted to. My story could’ve become something like, “Yeah, I used to think I was supposed to be a pastor, but I gave it a shot and things didn’t work out. That’s just how it goes.”
I’m certain you’ll have to wrestle with occasional challenges in different seasons of your life: a boss you don’t think you can stand another day, a relationship that’s suddenly hurting, a dream that’s running out of resources, a move that’s failed your expectations. When you face difficulties, it’s natural to reconsider your huge, life-altering decisions. You might ask questions like these.
Should I take my chances, quit this job, and look for something else?
After my spouse’s affair—is it time […]
Recently in a sweet conversation with my son, he said that he’d been ghosted by others in the family. When I reflected on our conversation sometime later, I realized that I had no clue about what being ghosted meant. I decided that it must be something from the younger generation and I’d better get busy getting up to date! I was right and it didn’t take long for me to discover that I’ve been ghosted too!
Ghosting is the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication – blocking you in their contact list, ignoring your emails or phone calls, etc. It doesn’t just happen in romance. You can be ghosted by a family member, friend, […]

A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words. Knowing this, God sculpted and shaped a vivid picture of hope deferred in the form of a mountain – wouldn’t you know it would be a mountain! Rugged. Barren. Big. It’s very name Horeb, means “desolation, a waste place, barrenness, dryness” – all synonyms of hope deferred. I sometimes think of this mountain when praying for America.
This is the place where Moses ended up for much of his forty-year exile, shoveling dung instead of bathing in royal hot tubs. There can be no more severe case of hope deferred than what Moses experienced, having lost his royal inheritance and, it seemed, his destiny. I realize “it ain’t over ‘til it’s over,” but after disappearing for forty years, a […]
As my sanctification continues, I want to be diligent to share any and all revelation I receive in the hope that it will help some of you grow with me! I believe every revelation we receive from God is a love gift for us but not just for us! I believe all love gifts from God become part of our ministry to our world! That includes the correction He brings us because even His correction comes in love and empowers us to change! So here is the latest gift of love I received…
All my life I have had a bad habit of calling other people bad names! Those names like idiot, morron, scum bag, jerk face, to name a few, have been a part of […]
Gerri and I have a marriage relationship that began in lust but has been transformed by Father’s supernatural love that overwhelms all opposition!
Years ago, the Lord said to us, “Where you’re going doesn’t look anything like where you’ve been!” Now looking back to what we were it is easy to see transformation. Gerri and I are individually not the same person. Our ministry is not the same. Our marriage is certainly not the same! What happened? Well…God happened! The more we committed ourselves to Him the more we changed! His revelation brought transformation! We believe this is the maturing process that Father desires for all His kids. We believe it is called sanctification, and it’s His process of removing sin and self to reveal the treasure He placed within each […]
The two of us talk together more and more about what it will be like there. We reminisce about how wonderful it will be to see our loved ones who have gone before us; how miraculous it will be to finally meet Roger’s earthly […]
If you are a Christian, you have without doubt experienced the enemy’s attempts to derail you and or your ministry for the Lord. Those attempts come in various forms. They can come when you experience a deep disappointment from someone. They can come when your character and integrity are attacked. They can come when you suffer a deep loss or when you head towards ministry burnout. They can come when a family member dishonors you and betrays your love for them. For us they came when we suffered deep wounds as other ministry leaders came against Places in The Father’s Heart or when we were thrown into the pit by family members who thought we had no business being in ministry because of our past lifestyle before Christ. Fact is…they […]
I am a prayer warrior. As a matter of fact my name, Geraldine, means warrior with a spear! I have been an intercessor for many over the years and even had the privilege to travel with Intercessors International to Ludenscheid, Germany to work with a team of intercessors for a European Vineyard Worship Conference. I am continually called upon to pray for people, places and things!
It is generally my pleasure to pray for those who contact me with their needs and sometimes their wants. However, there is one area where I find it very difficult to pray as I am asked. That occurs when someone contacts me repeatedly yet fails to follow through on the counsel or advice given.
Because of the way Father has trained Roger and me in prayer […]
