Like the Wise Men in Matthew 2, we have been diligent in seeking our Savior and His direction this past year. And, like the Wise Men, we have had some jubilant encounters and a couple detours and pivots in our quest to walk out his perfect will for our lives.
But God … He is so faithful.
Our speaking ministry is flourishing; we traveled coast to coast speaking to thousands and thousands and thousands of (mostly) women. There were breakthroughs, salvations, and revelations.
We were featured on two Focus on the Family broadcasts, and the live presentation we did at the FotF Chapel in Colorado Springs last July will be aired the spring of 2024.
We love partnering with God to do this speaker’s life.
Last year, I started coaching other women to do what I do as a speaker, using a program Dave and I created called Christian Speakers Boot Camp.
What started as a side hustle in 2022 to multiply the messengers with the Gospel of Jesus, has grown into a full-blown ministry of its own. Over 100 women have been trained and activated to speak the name of Jesus, tell their story and teach the Bible already this year.
Dave and I are showing some signs of wear and tear, but overall, very healthy and holding up well … for our age. Still really enjoying each other and the work we do together.
Dave has been fishing as much and as often as possible.
Jake sold his Grand Rapids home and moved to a more rural area with acreage and outbuildings for all his motorcycles and projects. Of course, his biggest news is getting engaged to Willemijn Veldhuijzen.
As we close out this year, we pray you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We pray the LORD meets you where you are and showers you with His pleasure and favor.
