It is finally time!!!!

Just click the picture above!
You can now Pre-order your very own copy of Microbursts! Here is just a teaser, the intro.

Microburst: a sudden, short, powerful burst of wind. It is gone as quickly as it came, but you are never the same from its impact. A more official definition is a violent, short-lived, very intense localized burst of wind that blasts to the ground and fans out. When the air hits the ground, it speeds up even more and can generate winds up to 168 miles per hour. It usually results from a thunderstorm.
Microbursts have been known to do incredible wind-sheer damage. When they were first discovered, they were often mistaken for tornadoes because of the damage they left behind.
When I was thirty years old, my life was turned upside down, and it wasn’t all good. I had been married for almost ten years to a wonderful man and had four kids. My husband Quintin and I had been youth pastors for eight years, spending three of them working under the “Best Senior Pastors in the Whole World.” At least that’s what Pastor Greg told us on a regular basis. To be honest, he was right! He and his wife, Tammy, had become our best friends in those three short years.
Things were looking great... then it started. Our pastor and his wife resigned and announced they were moving to a different state. Then we resigned and moved to a different city. As if that wasn’t enough, my father-in-law, who had been living with us off and on since he was diagnosed with cancer, finally lost his fight, or won the war depending on how you want to look at it, either way, he died and went to Heaven.
My most crushing blow came after his death. I had been a stay-at-home mom for eight years, since the birth of my first child. When Poppie died, my youngest two children were only 3 & 2. I was nowhere near ready to go back to work. At the very least, I wanted to wait until my baby was in school! However, with Poppie’s death, we lost his disability income, and I had to get a job.
Through God’s wondrous favor, I found a job, and it was at this job where He started dropping revelations into my spirit, revelations so strong and impacting, I would often comment aloud, “Oh, that’s good, God!” Then I would think to myself, someone ought to write that down.
One day as I thought this, God said, “Yeah, why don’t you?”
So I said, “OK God, but what do I call them? The world is full of revelations.”
God replied, “Microbursts!”
“Microbursts?” I asked. “What is that?”
“A sudden burst of revelation that impacts you and inspires you to make a change.”
“OK,” I said, “you show them to me, and I’ll write them down.”
So, here they are... Microbursts!

Proverbs 3:5-6
