Sound & Healing Therapy CD Release Video

I am abundantly blessed and overflowing with excitement and joy to announce the release of my new and creatively unique Sound & Healing Therapy CD yet, Fragrant Expressions, this Friday, September 1!

Holy Spirit led me on a research journey with Essential Oil frequencies in combination with specific Sound & Healing Therapy frequencies. Specific Scriptures provided the meditational and Holy Spirit led intention behind the spontaneous recordings of each title that resulted from the research.

As you listen, diffuse essential oils for each of the titles or use each oil as you are led. Have your Bible open to the recommended Scripture references. Receive, soak, and meditate. May the glorious fragrance of Christ awaken and empower within you an encounter of His fragrance rising up to your Heavenly Father and permeate your atmosphere.

2 Corinthians 2:15,“Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.” (NLT)

“For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which ascends] to God, [discernible both] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing…” AMP

“For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing…” (NASB)

“Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life.” (The Message)

To The Ends Of The Earth

To The Ends Of The Earth

(I can’t help but note Today’s Verse on this site as I post: “However, as it is written: ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9/NIV)
Last night we took a photo of Josiah sitting on Ronald McDonald’s lap at the RMH. This a.m.‘s dialysis brings scattered thoughts & a heart that simply needs to sit in my Heavenly Father’s lap. I am wearing a ‘Courageous’ t-shirt that reads, “My Husband is a Rich Man: He has a strong faith, children who love him, & a wife who adores him.”This is truly our family’s definition of rich, & I purposefully wear every word…I’m sending frequencies into the atmosphere that will prayerfully bless the man behind them. I am/we are so very thankful for Kevan, my husband of 32 years, & the father of our six children; the man my Heavenly Father so perfectly chose, specifically & especially for me/us. There are so many things about him that mirror the very heart of all our Heavenly Father is at work in behind the scenes of our family’s current journey. Kevan is truly a faithful friend of God (who’s married to a woman after God’s own heart so we make a great team 🙂 Kevan is wholeheartedly loving on & providing for us, both near & far, with both the big picture & the minuscule details covered at the heart of both ends. He is truly a picture of our Heavenly Father’s love in every way. Kevan has gone through a really rough season over the past eight years, but those rough seasons profoundly reveal to us how we are truthfully defined in the eyes of our Heavenly Father, what is truly most important in this life…& what’s not.
Back in my worship leader, house of prayer days (I still worship, I still pray – but the things of earth grow strangely dim the deeper we walk with the Lord), I used to sing the song, “To The Ends Of The Earth,” by Hillsong. I wholeheartedly & intently sang:“Jesus, I believe in You, & I would go to the ends of the earth…to the ends of the earth. For You alone are the Son of God and all the world will see that You are God…You are God.”In my wildest imagination, I would never have dreamed while singing those words, that going to ‘the ends of the earth’ would mean the current journey we’ve been on. At the time, I envisioned a grandiose call of going to the nations to point large numbers of children – a fatherless, forgotten generation – to Jesus, & train them up in His ways. In reality: we did go to the nations to bring back an older sibling group of three to become members of our family of five. We’ve trained up our three biological kids since the womb (yes, I read Scripture, prayed, & played classical/worship music to each child throughout pregnancy 🙂 in identity in Christ, the Word, & worship in Spirit & Truth; our adopted kids since the moment they entered our family at ages five, eight & ten. I would never have dreamed that ‘to the ends of the earth’ would literally mean stopping ‘life’ for ‘one:’ sitting in dialysis three times per week awaiting a creative miracle or a transplant (which, by the way, we remain confident that we’re going to get a ‘ram in the thicket’ before this journey ends (Genesis 22:1-13)). It’s like we’ve been given a ‘time out’ from life, to really press in deeply to knowing & trusting in our Heavenly Father to completely heal every detail needing His touch. Stopping the busyness of this life: stopping the schedules, the goals, the agendas, the visions, the have-to/want-to-get done’s, the serving, the ministry, & so the list goes on. We have been positioned to trust our earthly father AND our Heavenly Father to do all that can be done to take care of our needs so we can literally ‘check out’ from the goings-on of life & focus on the only need at hand: Josiah’s dialysis schedule & his need for a new kidney.
Until one has walked the path of serious illness, either personally or by taking care of a loved one with a serious illness, the lens of this life will never reveal what ‘stopping for the one’ really looks like, feels like, or encompasses. I still can’t quite wrap my mind around this reality, yet, there is no choice in the matter…I sense Josiah beginning to wrestle with that reality in the midst of resiliantly adjusting to what is presently his new normal. He is intently focused on finishing his school year, my daily playing frequencies with scientific research to back impacting his kidneys, listening to Mozart, & serious prayer time.If there’s one thing I know that I know that I know: similar to our earthly husband & father being about our family’s business/needs on our behalf as a devoted demonstration of how much he loves us, how much more is our Heavenly Father about His family’s business in good way far beyond anything we could ever hope for, imagine or dream. So yes, my heart today again sings the following lyrics, surrendered to however my Father desires to dream/plan it, simply because I trust in His goodness, His faithfulness, & His infinite love for me…for Josiah…for our family…and for the ‘one.’ Period.TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH (copyright Hillsong 2003)

A Season of Faith

Warning: Use of undefined constant videoembedder_options - assumed 'videoembedder_options' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/www/ on line 306

Anyone seeking the Lord and His Kingdom in this season, praying and believing in faith for His long-awaited promises to manifest, can sense faith being stirred, activated, and increasing in our spirits. We have been in a season of learning to remain steadfast and to persevere, which strengthens our faith to not only move mountains, but to invade them with the glory of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth: more of Christ in us, our hope of glory.

We have been learning to stop striving, controlling, and acting independently of Holy Spirit. We have been learning to let go, and to let Father God through Christ in us take the lead. We have been learning to walk in deep intimacy and relationship, as opposed to religion and “good works.” We have been learning to discern powers and principalities at work in regions/nations, as opposed to being personally offended or frustrated with people. We have been learning to see our own circumstances and all that’s going on in the world around us from Heaven’s perspective and not our own. We have been learning to exchange a life that vacillates between the natural and the spiritual, for a life completely dependent on Holy Spirit in a supernatural way. In that place, we have been learning how to cooperate with Holy Spirit in order to bring His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

We have been on a journey that others before us have traveled as our examples. What Mary and Joseph must have incurred as they humbly and obediently trusted in God to walk them through the incredible calling He had purposed for their lives! Their unyielding faith and trust in Heavenly Father brought forth the birth of the Savior and Restorer of all mankind: the one and only reason we even celebrate Christmas today!

Our own unyielding faith, humility, trust, perseverance, and obedience will result in the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who came to Earth first as a humble babe and the Lamb that was slain, being revealed in every sector of society in every nation: government, media, education, arts and entertainment, science and technology, business, church and family. The glory of the resurrected Jesus Christ, through the power of Holy Spirit, has been prophesied to rise and manifest through His Kingdom people.

I believe He has prepared a people even for such a time as this: a people who have said, “Yes, Lord, I will follow, regardless of the cost. I will seek You and I will obey. You are my Savior AND my Lord. My heart’s desire is You, Lord, and I say, ‘yes,’ to the identity Jesus purchased on my behalf as Your son or daughter. I say, ‘yes,’ to You fulfilling and advancing Your Kingdom plans and purposes on Earth in and through me. I say, ‘yes, Lord!’ Let the world experience Your love and compassion through more of Jesus in me…whatever it takes, Lord, I am Yours. I am learning to surrender my heart, my will, my mind, my emotions my circumstances, and my all to You, Lord!”

“Cancer will not defeat me. Financial disaster will not defeat me. My family being broken will not defeat me. Being isolated and alone will not defeat me. Depression will not defeat me. Losing it all will not defeat me. The enemy of my soul will not defeat me. Yes, Lord, I am learning to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the words of my testimony!”

We are most certainly living in difficult times, yet from Heaven’s view, these are amazing and exciting times! ‘Tis the season to let faith arise, and to give Him all the praise, thanksgiving, glory and honor! ‘Tis the season to seek and find Him. I absolutely love to celebrate the miracle of the first Christmas! There is such joy to be experienced in this season if we allow Joy Himself to manifest in our lives and in our families! He truly desires to exchange our sorrow for His joy, and our ashes for His beauty. He delights in turning our mourning into dancing!

I am counting down to Christmas and 2010 with greater anticipation and expectation of His glory being displayed for all the world to see and experience! There may be those who wonder if they’ve been forgotten. ‘Tis the season to focus on His truth: “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end.”

I love a word Holy Spirit spoke through a 10-year old boy in December of 2007. For specific details concerning this word please read my article, entitled: A Season of Expectation. Below is a promise awaiting His manifestation:

Word Received in Kingdom Kids – 12/16/07 – Danny (age 10, grade 4)

The 2008 Christmas Gift!
I herd (heard) God say “I am giving you a gift to all that no one haves (has). It is so precious that the glory of it is shining briter (brighter) than the sun! It’s power is felt all over the earth!” I herd (heard) God say agian (again).”What I speack (speak) is important. It’s might is so far beyond yours.” He said agian (again), “This Christmas I am giving you a restorement (restoration?). My perpose (purpose) is berdond (burdened) on your harts (hearts) so now you know what to do! For now all will (be) and are healed. I am soon coming so rase (raise) up mighty warriors to win the battle that has allready bine (been) won by the blood of Christ. We won and now are going to flood your homes with the glory of me!!!!!”
