God is Awesome! (by Staci Stallings)

I just want to state for the record that "God is SO awesome!" I am coming day by day to a much deeper understanding of just how awesome and faithful He is to each of us. For me, writing is not as much my ministry so as God’s ministry to me and my spirit and my understanding. Getting to share these stories with others is just a bonus. I have learned through writing how much God loves us—even in our darkest moments, how much He wants us to live in peace, and to what lengths He will go to bring us to Him.

In learning to navigate the publishing waters, God has put many friends in my path—both readers and other authors. Their insights into life have freed me to live in the wholeness that God had envisioned from the very beginning, and I' so grateful for that.

Most of all, I am grateful for the love of God which truly surpasses all understanding! I want to share His abiding, faithful love with everyone because it makes such a vast difference if you live in fear and dread or in the peace, love, and hope God meant for you to live.

You can read the first three chapters of each book here.

Hey, Cherie! The blessings just keep coming! I feel like I did when I was on a skiing vacation. I stood out in a meadow that was blanketed with snow, and as I stood there in the peacefulness, the snow fell around me. The understanding came that those snowflakes were what God's blessings looked like falling down all around us. How awesomely faithful He is, and how awesome to live in that understanding!
