National Reading Group Month

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Are you a fan of literacy?  I believe that you are.  Statistics show that higher literacy rates lead to higher education and ultimately to a higher quality of life.  Isn’t that a great goal to have?

Join me this month in promoting reading and literacy and my many attempts to get groups to read and enjoy great books together.  With the release of our new Study Guide, I am encouraging small groups to gather within their local churches, book clubs, libraries, workplaces, organizations and homes.

Will you join me?

Remembering 9-11

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

This is the day that the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

This Scripture reminds me daily about how exciting it is to be alive and well.  As we remember our loved
ones and colleagues that were lost on this day seven years ago, let’s celebrate their lives in lieu of
mourning their untimely and undeserved deaths.  I remember watching that day’s events while in mid-town Manhattan (New York City), from Three Times Square on the 20th floor, in 2001 and how suddenly the events transpired.

Celebrate life today and live it in remembrance of those who were lost on 9-11-2001.

It’s Your Time

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

In a couple of weeks from today, we will enter into yet another change in seasons.  As the vegetation (plants, trees, grass) as well as the air quality and temperature change to accomodate God’s perfect will, so should we. 

We should change and make adjustments in life based our individual growth, development and maturity.  Have you grown in 2008?  Have you achieved your goals and dreams for this year that you set in January?  If so, outstanding!  If not, change and adjust today in preparation for the next few months ahead.

Another Trip Accomplished

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Hello all.  Well, we just returned from two more dynamic and progessive cities: Miami and Nassau Bahamas.  What a joy to meet such wonderful people – that is why I write.  Each trip consisted of meet and greets with key industry insiders and one local pastor in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Borders Books, Afro-In Books and Cafe, Community Church of God, 100% Christian BookShop, The Christian BookShop and Bahamas Faith Ministries International treated me as their guest over the past six to seven days.  Mr. Baughn Miller, Bahamas office of tourism, Religious Market, was my tour guide in Nassau, the capital of the Islands of the Bahamas.  Wonderful trip and thanks to all!

Greetings from Seattle

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

I write this morning from cloudy, yet pleasant, Seatlle, Washington, in the upper northwest portion of the United States.  Here for three literary events to promote the Give God the Glory! titles, my wife and I are having a blast.  Yesterday, July 4th, we both participated, along with other authors included Susan Taylor – former editor and publisher for Essence Magazine, in the 3rd annual Links Literary Showcase. The very supportive women of The Links, Incorporate, at their 36th National Assembly, warmly embraced the authors and were inquisitive about our individual and collective works.

For the remainder of this weekend, I visit the JOY Christian Bookstore (Saturday) and the Berean Love and Bible Fellowship Church (Sunday) to continue to spread the message of God’s goodness.  I pray for your weekend in loaded with love, peace, unity, and together let’s Give God the Glory!

By the way, did you watch Venus win Wimbledon this morning?  Another great victory for a fantastic child of God.

Our First 30 days – My Journey

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

I am close to completing my first 30 days of my international outreach leading up to the publication of our first Study Guide in the Give God the Glory! book series.  While completing the updates to our two websites – Writingforthelord.com and .org – we have also updated our Amazon.com page, listed the Study Guide at Bowker.com, and are about to embark upon the Google Book Search Program for our entire series. These activities aid our ability to reach a global market as intended.

To piggyback on our current efforts, the manuscript goes off to our editor on next week and in July, we embark upon a four-city tour (see our July itinerary): Seattle, Charlotte, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, and The Bahamas Islands (Nassau).  We have scheduled excellent events for each city that will prove to be quite enjoyable and profitable for our ministry and book series.  Expanded our network is key!

More updates on next week.  Enjoy God’s blessings!

Along My Journey

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Today, I am well into our 90-day campaign leading up to the September 2nd release of our first Study Guide in the Give God the Glory! series.  So far, our collective efforts have included a post on Amazon.com, Google Book Search, Baker and Taylor, revision and rewrite (for the Study Guide format) of our first book – Know God and Do the Will of God Concerning Your Life, notification (via email and direct mail with postcards) to multiple churches, bookstores, publishing industry insiders, book clubs, and libraries in the United States and nine countries around the world.  Boy, I’m excited!!

Next week, our rewrite goes to the editor for a complete proof and editing, then on to be typeset and formatted for printing.  Then, my family and I embark upon a four city book tour to continue to promote the series plus the new Study Guide: Seattle for the Links, Inc. National Assembly plus one local church, Charlotte for the National Christian Writer’s Conference plus one local church, Miami for several venues including Borders Books, Afro-In Books and Cafe and one local church, then on to the Bahamas with The Christian Book Shop.  We continue to pray that we receive 5,000 pre-publication orders.  Spread the word for us!!

God bless until next time.  Enjoy God’s blessings.

Happy Father’s Day

A Family Prayer

by Kevin Wayne Johnson
 © 2005

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus
What a joy I have today
To pray unto you
As I do each and every day.

As I wake each day at dawn
To a sun that you caused to rise,
I am again thankful for the opportunity
To have been welcomed into the body of Christ.

I pray for my family, Lord
Whom you created just for me
Your Word says to serve and provide for them
And to encourage them to be what your Word calls them to be.

I pray Father that my family will
Prosper, and be in good health, even as our souls prosper
And that we continually acknowledge You in all of our ways,
Knowing that You shall direct our paths that no one can conquer.

I pray for salvation and academic excellence
For each and every child today
And for my spouse, I pray for peace
That will never fade or away.

I pray Father that our beautiful family
Be a visible example in the earth
Of what Your Word teaches us
That is, to be a blessing and not a curse.

In exchange for Your love toward us
We promise this to you
That this family will remain intact
No matter what the world may say or do.
This family will boldly reflect
What your Word intends for the family to be,
A strong and loving father, a tender and caring mother,
And children who honor their parents as their authority.

Thank you, Father for the stewardship
That comes with parental accountability,
What a privilege to be trusted
With such responsibility!

Father, use our family
To make a change in society
To demonstrate Your awesome love
For all humanity.

Your Word says,
“Train up a child in the way that he should go,
So that when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
We pledge to do this so our children won’t be tossed to and fro.

Your Word teaches the man
To love his wife as Christ also loved the church
For she is his glory, as is to be regarded
As precious as Your only Sons’ birth.

So Father, we touch and agree
Right now as we prepare for Your work today,
That Jesus is the solid rock upon which we stand
Even as You care for us every step along the way.

We pray for all families throughout our land
That they will come to know Your unconditional love,
And that Your original plan for the family
Will transcend all that is wrong with this world.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

I dedicate this prayer to all father’s from the fourth book in the Give God the Glory! series – The Godly Family Life.

My Next Journey

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Today, I am so excited to embark upon the adventure of publishing book #6 in the best-selling Give God the Glory! series.  I am elated at the awesome opportunity to share God’s Word internationally with 10 countries in several languages.

It began in 2001 and my ministry has mushroomed into more than writing.  I speak, teach, inspire, motivate and challenge thousands of people annually about the Give God the Glory! message.  That is, put God first and foremost in our lives in everything that we do.

This next book is actually a STUDY GUIDE – a deeper and more meaningful adventure through the first book in the series: Know God the Do the Will of God Concerning Your Life.  Together, let’s journey through the STUDY GUIDE as we anticipate the actual release on September 2, 2008.

Join me weekly as we undercover various portions of the STUDY GUIDE.  Together, let’s Give God the Glory!

Enjoy God’s blessings!
