Mirrors Don't Lie... or Do They?Kamea was a thief, scraping by in the Dominion of Darkness and stuck with the latest of a long line of men who didn't love her and a past filled with pain and regret. Her only possession, a treasured mirror she had received at birth. But, after a “chance” encounter with what seems to be an apparition, the course of Kamea’s life is changed forever as she is forced to choose between two worlds: the one she’s always known, or the Kingdom of Light. With the help of the warrior known as the One and Only, the kind and wise Counselor, and even the Almighty One, Kamea must decide whether to believe the haunted reflection of her long trusted mirror, or what those in the Kingdom of Light tell her is true about herself.
I wrote Kamea a few years ago and have now self-published it.
I invite you to go to www.KameaTheBook.com and read an excerpt. It's a quick read and would make a great gift for women of all ages. Now available on Amazon and Kindle.

So, if you know me, you know I love to study the Bible, I love to worship God, I love to teach, I love to sing and I love to Rock Out. Our Country Punk Band, Brother Howe, has just released our new album AMERICAN MAN ... this is the album with the song MAKE A DIFFERENCE which I discussed in my last blog entry which includes the "AMERICAN MAN CHOIR" Most of the songs are written by my husband, Jason Howe, but AMERICAN MAN also includes an upbeat song that I wrote and sing: SEARCH ME OH GOD. The chorus is often my prayer (Psalm 139): Search me Oh God, and know my weary heart... Test me and know my fears... see if there is any thing between us. Lead me in your way... in your way.
So click here to take a listen to Search me O God:

God is real. He is alive. He has made the heavens and the earth. He has created everything that has breath. He is constantly revealing Himself to His created people: through nature, through His word, through His deeds and through His redeemed people - those who follow Christ.
AWARE is about becoming more aware of God, His passion that all people would know Him and His incredible, often unnoticed work going on around us.
AWARE is about becoming more aware of each Christ follower's role in seeing others come to know God through Jesus Christ.
AWARE is about gaining a better understanding of others, their perspective and life experiences.
The Relaunched AWARE has 5 group sessions and includes a brand new "at home" study called DEEPLY AWARE, a study of Psalm 23 from a thought-provoking perspective.
AWARE has just been released, and I am the primary author.

People today are looking for a hospitable place… a place among people who are warm, inviting and accepting.
They are longing to find a safe place to ponder the deep questions of life and figure out what they think and believe about the things that matter.
They want companionship on their spiritual journeys.
They need this… we all
And we need to provide that kind of place for others… a place to belong
is a 7 week group bible study that has been just recently released by Stonecroft Ministries.
I am the primary author and I invite you to check it out
Jeri Howe will be a panelist at the STIR web event 10-2-10.
(In Anticipation of the STIR web event on www.stonecroft.org/stir)
God is stirring.
He is always at His work to this very day (John 5:17)
and His work is to glorify Himself, to reveal Himself to His creation, to bring us to know Him…
He has gone through great lengths over centuries to do this… and God is still moving.
I picture Genesis 1:2 where it says that the “Spirit of God was hovering over the waters”
I sense God hovering over the world now.
He is moving.
He is saving.
He is binding up the broken-heated.
He is proclaiming freedom.
He is releasing the prisoners from darkness.
He is stirring…
Will we join Him?
Will I follow Jesus, who did only what He saw his Father doing? (John 5:19)
Will I let myself be swept up into the fiery, powerful and saving passion of God for the ones far from Him?
