You’re Invited: Join My Online Study Group

Transformation begins with a choice to allow something new to take place. Defined, transformation means "a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance." I remember learning about the metamorphosis of the life cycle of a caterpillar as it spun it's cocoon or chrysalis to allow conversion into a monarch butterfly. Even as an eight year old, studying this alteration of life seemed remarkable and almost unbelievable. There are many spiritual parallels when you and I choose to allow God to speak to us through a study of His attributes, when we call on His names and invite Him to change us into the likeness of His son, He does something new. Won't you join us? Here's the details:

Dear friends and family, starting October 1, join the journey: an online Facebook group studying my new book, Experiencing God Through His Names.

What’s Your Name?

"Becky, Kathy, Casper, Ginger, oh whatever your name is..."

Mom's voice was shrill and exasperated by the time she went through the list of names in our household. She was adamant and forceful when I heard her say the final name, "SHERYL DEANN."

Experiencing God Through His Names

What's in a name? A lot, actually. Names are more than groups of letters that represent a person or identify objects. Names are powerful. A person's character or destiny can be influenced by his or her name. So when it comes to God, His attributes and personality support His unique and distinct names. When we comprehend the meanings of His titles, we can know God more intimately by understanding His names.

Want to join me as we draw close to God by studying His names together? I can’t wait for you to experience God showing you more of His power and presence. I am very excited to announce that my new book, Experiencing God Through His Names, will be released next month. It is my prayer that you and I will journey together in study and fellowship as we get to know God in this way.
