God bless you! I received your package earlier this week and was so touched and amazed at your sweet gift and the lovely words you wrote, thank you so much!!! I wanted to read 'I Left Him But He Never Left Me' in it's entirety before writing you this email and thanking you.
This book spoke to me, and confirms so many things which the Lord has been doing in my life. In the latter chapters, you speak a lot about healing, binding and loosing spirits, etc. That's exactly what God has been talking to me and my family about in the past few weeks! He's been using certain men of God,so I could learn more about these things - and then here comes your book! Thank You Jesus!
I was also so blessed to read about the manifestations of God's will in your life. As an 18 year old girl, the testimonies and lessons you learned as a young woman definitely fall in line with everything my parents have taught me up until this point. I've been walking in Jesus for as long as I can remember, because I was born to God-fearing, born-again, Christian parents. But it wasn't until the past year that I was able to TRULY come to the Lord, whole-heartedly, with a true desire to know Him and learn and grow in Him.
I feel that your book can and does minister to girls my age who don't understand, haven't been taught, or are being swept away by the wiles of the world and need guidance. I definitely want my sisters to read it. My mother has read part of it already and she says that your love for God shines through the pages, and that you've certainly been anointed in your ministry of healing.
Another amazing (and non-coincidental) concept is the 'I Speak Life' book. Two days before receiving your package, my mom had us all make these little booklets (the same size as your booklet, mind you!) which we call our 'Truth' books. We've been filling it with prayers, scripture, declarations, etc. Whenever we're having a hard time, or are being attacked by the enemy, we can turn immediately to the scriptures we have written down in order to overcome the accusations or lies we are dealing with. Funny part is, it is almost exactly the same as your little booklet! Amazing, or what?!
On top of all this, I found your book helpful in the sense that I am actually writing a book now, and have been recently discouraged with it. A few years ago, God told me I was going to write a book about my family and some intense trials that He allowed us to go through. They ultimately ended up glorifying Him, but He showed us that He's also going to use what happened to us as a testimony to others. There is yet more which I know that He hasn't made me aware, but I know there is a purpose. Reading your book was an inspiration in that sense as well.
It encouraged me, because sometimes I get attacked with the lie of 'I'm a terrible writer and I don't know what I'm doing and how am I ever going to finish this,' and so on. Your book reminded me that it doesn't matter about MY abilities - I'm simply the vessel which God is using to accomplish His perfect will. So thank you, because you've obeyed the Lord and God is now using you in this respect as well.
Once again, thank you for your wonderful gift and message... I needed it.
With all love in Christ and a big hug in the spirit,
