I’m really excited to reveal the cover and a bit of information about an upcoming anthology for which I am a contributing author.

Abba’s Promise: 33 Stories of God’s Pledge to Provide, edited by Debra L. Butterfield, releases in paperback, November 2016.


A peek at the back cover:

From our smallest to our biggest need…

…Abba Father has promised to provide. When trouble or trials strike, we can find ourselves doubting the goodness of His Word. But the writer of Hebrews reminds us to “hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.” (Heb. 10:23 NLT) God’s promises anchor our hope, and His words of promise are as close as the Bible. Our personal testimony of how God has worked in our lives is a powerful weapon against Satan. In Abba’s Promise, you’ll find thirty-three personal stories of God’s provision. From finances to guidance for our lives to a simple exercise ball, these stories will encourage you and strengthen your faith.

A little more information: Why 33 stories? Because in biblical numerology 33 means promise, and that’s what this book is all about.

God’s promises hold true. He is faithful. We can trust him.
