Lazarus Awakening

What an honor it is to tell you about the newest book, study guide, and DVD series by my friend, Joanna Weaver!  In Lazarus Awakening she reveals the profound love Jesus had for Lazarus and the shocking life-after-death-on-earth He lavished on His friend.  She skillfully points the reader to a vibrant choice—abundant life!  If you long to wake up to God’s unrestrictive mercy, unconditional love, and supernatural power, read this book.  It is an ideal small group Bible study choice, too. Q & A with Joanna Weaver: 1.  In your first book, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World,

Fight Back With Joy

A new friend to me is Margaret Feinberg, speaker and author of the just-released Fight Back With Joy: Celebrate More. Regret Less. Stare Down Your Greatest Fears. As a young thirty-something woman she faced a great fear—being diagnosed with cancer!  This diagnosis plunged her into a search for the best weapon to propel her to a place of overcoming—and she chose joy.  Margaret says:  “You have joy not in spite of your circumstances, but because of them.  You are drenched in the grace and mercies of God.” Most of you know I faced a different kind of fear—the arrest of

What I Wish I’d Known Earlier in My Speaking and Writing Ministry

by Carol Kent At the age of twenty-three I attended my first women’s conference—Winning Women in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  I had graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in speech education the year before and I assumed I would be a speech, drama, and English teacher.  However, that weekend changed everything about my future plans. I was seated in the back of the auditorium at Western Michigan University among 3,500 women who were all excited about attending this event.  Jill Briscoe was speaking and the conviction of God’s Spirit was heavy on my heart as I sensed his voice saying, “Carol, one

Grow a Wildfire Faith

Guest Blog, by Diana Pintar Dear Friends, Diana Pintar and I have been friends for over two decades and we have both experienced unthinkable personal firestorms.  The new book, Unquenchable, was recently released and Diana wrote a blog about it.  She so captured the essence of what I want people to get out of this book, that I asked for permission to post it here: I have just finished reading Unquenchable: Grow a Wildfire Faith that Will Endure Anything, by Carol Kent. I was eagerly anticipating the release of her new book and I read through it in a handful

In Everything Give Thanks

December 3, 2013 This would be a different Thanksgiving Day.  I carefully selected the clothes I would wear that would meet all regulations for a prison visit—nothing with Spandex in it, no sleeveless blouses, no fabrics that were thin enough to reveal the shirt worn underneath.  The forecast was for cold weather, so I placed my coat in a place where it could easily be accessed on the way out the door.  The wait outside before getting through security could be up to two hours. I set the clock for 5:30 a.m. before falling into bed.  My plan was to

The Turn-Around Trip

It had been an intense season of ministry and I knew I was behind with getting back in touch with meeting planners, e-mail, social media responses, with three endorsements for author friends, and with a writing deadline of my own.  Why had I accepted the invitation to fly across the country from Tampa to Los Angeles for the television interview?  I needed to be at home in my “writing cave” working on my looming deadline. But it was too late to cancel.  The interview was being taped for a program that would later air in the English speaking countries in
