Wow! Wow! Wow! All I can say is Wow! “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20, NKJV
For the past several months I have been in complete awe and gratitude of how our Beloved really loves and blesses us. In my past PR, which posts on May 21, I shared how my EH had begun petitioning our Beloved for a better employment opportunity for my EH. He came through in an amazing and unimaginable way!! It has been such a joy and we have so enjoyed his dramatic schedule change and just so blessed to spend so much more time together as a family without being so physically and emotionally run down.
While basking in His blessing, He decided to once more up the ante. Recently, I have been blessed to serve as the MET Branch Director where I have worked for the past few years ministering to the ladies who have been led to our Ministry and are SG for Restoration. Just as seasons change, my season had come and He anointed and prepared a path for another one of our RESTORED ministers to continue in His vision! Atarah. While my heart will forever be with these ladies, because I am deeply in-tune with their struggles and have traveled the narrow road, I also now look forward with excitement— things to come with Him.
Recently Erin approached me about helping with our Encouraging Bookstore and assisting with the Narrow Road Publishing group as there are many projects that are awaiting completion. Initially, I was reluctant, I didn’t think I would make a good book “salesperson.” How trivial of me to think that I was being asked to do something in my own strength.
I let go and SG, and decided that I was happy to journey wherever He led next. The more I SG the more excited that I became about this opportunity and challenge to work with Him in a new and exciting capacity. I love books, and to have a position, where I would be surrounded by books and the written word, especially ones that are filled with His words and His testimonies, seemed really exciting.
My EH and I dreamed of one day retiring and owning our own publishing company, where we could read at our leisure and provide a means to give a voice to those with a strong message that the world needed to hear. What I didn’t realize was that He would manifest that dream and that vision way before our retirement years. I never shared that dream with anyone other than my EH, and just a few days ago, Erin approached me with what she envisioned, the idea of RMI helping me to build my very own publishing company, where I can assist RMI and the Encouraging Bookstore while also assisting other ministries spread the word that the world needs to hear. I am excited about this new venture, but more importantly, I am so thankful that He chose me to honor Him in this capacity!

Ministry Note: WOW, when Cierra told me about what she and her husband had dreamed of doing, I had no idea. Honestly, from the moment He first told me to transition Cierra from our Marriage Evaluation Ministry to EB Encouraging Bookstore and NarrowRoad publishing I thought I was deranged. Haha. But He knows that no matter how absurd something is, how “out there” something seems to be, I would just follow His lead. How thankful I am that fool who He loves to use to confound the wise! Who knew? GOD knew! God knew this desire you and your husband had!!! AMAZING!!!!! ~ Erin
What this means is we will soon see more books in print. More books to bless others with—especially those who do not have internet or want something to hold in their hands. Cierra will continue sending in regular praise reports letting us all know what book her team is working on and what’s newly available!!
