On New Year’s Eve, during a worship service, I was in the Spirit and I saw a great procession of God’s people marching forward as one great army or company. Directly in front of this sea of people was the name of JESUS. I didn’t “see” Jesus— only his name. It was going before us— clearing the way and directing us like the pillar of fire or the cloud that directed the children … [Read more...] about His Name Goes Before Us To Clear the Way
How many of you have been waiting for a promise of God or a prophetic word spoken over your life to come to pass? If that’s you, then you are in good company! Just read the Bible and it will bring some perspective and understanding that confirms there is most often a “journey” to the fulfillment of promises. Often the journey is so difficult and long that we begin to doubt that … [Read more...] about I Saw It Raining “Promises Fulfilled” Like New Years Confetti!
It is easy to say, “I trust God” until that moment when life’s circumstances are out of your control. It is in those inevitable times (that we all want to avoid) that our trust is challenged. I remember many times in our younger years, when first doing missions work, where money had run out and we had four kids to feed, bills to pay and could not work to earn money in the … [Read more...] about Trusting In the Unseen Hand of God
Two days ago I was editing a chapter I wrote for an upcoming prophetic book to which I was asked to contribute. As I reread one section that referred to the 400 years of silence between the Old Testament and New Testament, suddenly the Holy Spirit clearly spoke to me. He said one sentence that gripped me immediately. I heard, “This is the end of the ‘silence of the lambs’ and … [Read more...] about 2022: The End of Silence — The Beginning of the Roar
Since 2020 began and ushered our world into a global crisis, I have watched as many believers have struggled to keep their hopes high and their faith strong. For sure we have all experienced many losses and gone through many trials but God is saying, “RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND WATCH WHAT I WILL DO!” I saw expectations lifted up like a banner being raised or flags being … [Read more...] about “RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND WATCH WHAT I WILL DO!”
In 2006 Kris Vallontton gave me a lengthy prophecy in which God called me “a prophet of compassion.” He said that it is a rare breed of prophets but that I would raise up other “prophets of compassion” and they would have a heart like Mother Theresa for those they see. I have carried this word for over fifteen years but it’s only been in the past two months that it has been … [Read more...] about Prophets of Compassion Arise
Each morning I wake up to see these words written on the wall of our bedroom, “His Love Will Calm Your Fears.” They remind me to begin each day in the home and refuge of His love. There I am given peace, rest and joy in His presence. While panic and negative news fills the airwaves and the conversations all around us, the good news of His love ushers us home to a place where … [Read more...] about “Wisdom has built your walls and My love has become the shelter and cover over you.”
A week ago I had one of the most unexpected and transforming encounters of my life. I am praying that the Spirit will help me to share it with you so that you can truly experience the transformation as well. I was in our Sunday service here in downtown Portland, Oregon. As always, worship was powerful and beautiful from the moment we began. Then, I found myself being drawn … [Read more...] about A Throne Room Encounter That Changed Everything!
“But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these!” Psalms 93:4 Have you felt like you’ve been the underdog in a boxing rink with an opponent that has knocked your feet out from under you with his punch? If so, know this…THE LORD IS MIGHTIER THAT THAT WHICH HAS BEEN SENT AGAINST YOU! I felt my … [Read more...] about God is Coming With a Knock-Out Punch to the Enemy— Get Ready for a Surprise Victory!
This morning I was taken into a vision of God’s people being pulled back by some unseen force. They were confused, disoriented and even resisting this force that was seemingly pulling them back. Then I was taken to see the the greater picture and they were actually in God’s hand as He held a massive slingshot. He had his people in this slingshot (they are the stone) and He was … [Read more...] about Do You Feel Like You’ve Been Pulled Back? Well, Get Ready To Launch!
Today my husband and I woke up to our first day as “empty nesters.” As I thought of our 33 years of raising children, I suddenly realized that we have multiplied. What was once one household is now many households that bare our name and our children’s names. As I pondered this, I suddenly heard the verses from Isaiah 54:2-3, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent … [Read more...] about Multiplication Is Now Coming
I was quite intrigued to hear Chuck Pierce release a word over our nation about coming to a “Full Circle” time (beginning) during this past week. In mid-July our family was in the process of moving cross country (from Virginia to Oregon). When we reached Columbia, Missouri to spend the night, I walked into the hotel room and on the wall was a photograph of a ferris wheel … [Read more...] about “Hope will come full circle to the place of fulfillment.”
I recently had the Spirit of the Lord come upon me in a powerful way that brought me to trembling and tears. When this happened I heard the Spirit say, "Hanukkah 2021 will be the start of an eight year period of restoring the temple.” Where believer’s lamps have gone out and lives have been defiled and in disrepair (like the temple during the first Hanukkah)— miraculously … [Read more...] about “Hanukkah 2021 will be the start of an eight year period of restoring the temple.”
I saw a vision of a calendar changing from the 9th month to the 10th month and when it flipped over it said, “10 FOLD HARVEST!” Immediately I began to hear the words, “Ten fold returns, bonuses, raises, increase, promotions and blessings.” I could see envelopes being handed to workers that had checks in them that were unexpected. Then I saw the verse from Luke 10:7 that … [Read more...] about October Will Be A Month of Harvest For Many!
Last night I had the most unusual dream that felt more like an encounter than a dream. In this dream, I was spending time with the Lord and as I did he drew my attention to a place deep in my stomach where there was some anxiety that I had learned to live with (and even ignore). As He drew my attention to it, He began to take me into that very place. As I went there, I could … [Read more...] about Dream: Jesus Is Swaddling Soul Wounds
Many years ago the Lord spoke to me about a “log jam” that was happening within his people that was stopping the flow of blessings that he had stored up for them. When I asked him what the source of the “log jam” was, he said, “Judgements and offense.” Then he brought me to Matthew 7:1-2, “Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. For with the judgements that you use, … [Read more...] about Breaking the Log Jam and Releasing the Flow of Blessings
This morning at 3 am I woke up with intercession in my mouth for someone that I have not seen in over a decade. I was immediately taken into a vision of the fire of the Holy Spirit being poured into him and baptizing him anew. This fire consumed him, refined him, purified him and awakened him to such a degree that it transformed every area of his life. Joy consumed him so much … [Read more...] about A Baptism of Fire Will Fall and Change Lives and Nations
As I waited on the Lord, I heard the word “inversion”. As I prayed and waited further I could see the Lord causing a supernatural reversal to assignments that the enemy had sent against your life. I also saw the enemy turned on his head as the Lord brought these reversals. I looked up the definition of inversion and this is what it means: a change in the position, order, or … [Read more...] about Supernatural Inversions Will Take Place
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 While Jesus was hanging on the cross, He looked down at the soldiers who had nailed Him there and prayed these words. They were dividing up his garments (after stripping Him naked) and casting lots. The response of our Savior, who was suffering unimaginable pain, was to ask his Father to … [Read more...] about Father, Forgive Them
“For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD.” Hanukkah 2:14 I heard in my spirit all of the noise coming from news reports and social media outlet of conflicts, fear and tyranny. I heard the noise of divisions, anger, blame, fear and rage— all resonating like “resounding gongs and clanging cymbals”. It was deafening. … [Read more...] about This is a time when God is first purifying his church, because we are carriers of His glory.

As I was unpacking the last of our boxes in our new home, I came across the Bible that I used when I was in my twenties. In those days, my husband and I were going through years of infertility and it was a deep pain in my heart because we longed to have children. I would pray and stand on the Word of God, waiting eagerly for the promise to be fulfilled. Today, as I opened … [Read more...] about There are many who will read this that are eagerly holding onto “hope unseen”.
Just this week alone, I have seen many reports of the miraculous happening but I also experienced a miracle. Last night as I sat in awe of my personal miracle— I felt the Spirit of God say, "Unprecedented miracles will be seen more and more with each passing month." In a time that most of us have been touched by the death of someone we love or someone we know— and reports of … [Read more...] about “Unprecedented miracles will be seen more and more with each passing month.”
Often God will speak to me through my personal struggles or my personal victories. If I will take the time to listen and to take my eyes off of “me” then it allows me to see beyond personal circumstances into the heart of our great intercessor, Jesus.

I have also learned through those dark moments to … [Read more...] about It’s Darkest Before The Dawn— But Your Dawn Is About To Breakthrough!
I used to think that my family was unique in the fact that God had called us to constantly live in the place that I call, “the unfamiliar.” God has called our family in different seasons to many different regions, states and nations so it is rare for us to be familiar with a place. We have learned to find our sense of stability in God and family since scenery and homes are … [Read more...] about Let the unfamiliar draw you into becoming familiar with that which is eternal!
As most of my readers know, our family is in the ten-day countdown for yet another cross country move and transition— bridging east and west. The process was going so smoothly for the first few weeks and it appeared as though we’d just sail on smooth waters to the other side of our nation. Then... without warning, the wind picked up, the waves picked up and the storm hit. … [Read more...] about His Peace Is Now Coming Upon Your Storm
God has been speaking to me a lot the past few weeks about pillars. He showed me so many of His people that are being set as pillars in His house. The process of their preparation has been one of overcoming. They have stood and remained faithful to God amid trials and tribulations that would have caused most men to turn away. They have had LONG seasons of adversity and … [Read more...] about God’s Pillars Are Being Raised and Demonic Pillars Are Coming Down!
For many years now, I have been having the Spirit highlight the number 10:10 to me. It began one October night in a parking lot as I waited for my husband to grab some items in a grocery store after a long drive home from first an international trip followed by speaking at a conference. I was too exhausted to walk through a grocery store. As soon as my husband stepped out … [Read more...] about Choose Life! This is your 10:10 moment.
The following piece was written one year ago today. I believe that this is still happening and it is what the enemy fears the most. Read it and know that the new wineskin will pour forth the new wine. For two months now I have been seeing in my spirit the new wineskin but had no words to describe what I was seeing other than to say it was seamless and the word, “Oneness” was … [Read more...] about The Alabaster Wineskin
