I still lived in Kansas City. It was 17 or so years ago. I had been on the road ministering and had just gotten home. I heard that there were extended meetings going on in Saint Louis at a church and that Rodney Howard Brown was ministering. I was hungry for more of the Lord and Michal Ann blessed me to go check things out. I decided to go with a couple of my friends. It was a fascinating series of meetings to me. I saw the raw anointing of God flowing through one of His servants.
I WAS DESPERATE!
I began to cry out loud in the middle of the service as this man of God would slowly pass through the crowds and simply touch them and say over and over again, “FILL!” Well, he eventually made his way to the left side where I was sitting with my friends. I kept declaring, “Right here! Right now!” I was not disappointed but was surprised by what happened. As the servant of the Lord touched me, I was taken up in the Spirit in what is called a trance. I was no longer aware of what was taking place in the meeting but rather brought into a place invited by the Holy Spirit where heavenly worship was taking place. Then I heard a word spoken to me.
“I commission you to compose transferrable concepts for those who will be touched in the coming moves of God. I commission you to write books, training manuals, and audio and video messages to ground my people in the Word of God. Ground them in the understandings of the previous historic moves of God so that the enemy will not be able to steal from them the impartations I give to them. I commission you to write about Encounters with God so that they may be equipped to be all that I call them to be.”

Well, that was my “calling and commissioning” into a lot of what I still do to this day. I started having dreams of book titles and covers of books and study guides. Step by step the Holy Spirit led me and now today I have written some Best Sellers and some others – that are just as equally as good – but are relatively unnoticed books. I have now composed somewhere around 20 books, 20 study manuals and another 10 co-authored books.
This is now all leading up to the launch this fall of the God Encounters Training – E-School of the Heart – where faith and life meet. My hunger for more of the Lord led me into a journey that was a surprise to me. I am sure He also has some surprises in store for you as well.
So there is peak behind the scenes into My Calling to Write. I trust you have and will benefit from this personal note. Be All You Can Be!
