I tap into the timeless truths expressed by a loving and kind creator in order to release that love and impart identity. My passion is to equip and empower a generation with tools to know who they are and how to live abundantly so that they can impact society for the good.

The Vision for COW Ministries:
I have loved cows for a very long time. (As an icon, not necessarily up close and personal.) It may stem from the fact that we played the cow game on road trips from So. Cal. to Oregon when I was a kid. (You count the cows on your side of the car. Whoever has the most at the end of the route wins. But, if you drive past a cemetery all the cows on that side of the car "die" and you're down to zero again.) Or that God has put a passion in me because He wanted a ministry of that name. I think it's both. But inside me there is a ministry called C.O.W. - Creative Overcoming Worshippers. God has been sculpting this in me for decades now (I'm older than I look) and in 2007 He gave my cow legs.

But first I need to tell you what C.O.W. is about.

I believe every follower of Jesus Christ is a worshipper. Not just someone who sings songs at church on Sunday mornings, but one who is a worshipper.

John 4:23 says "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers (proskunete) will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers (proskuneo.)"

That word "worship" (proskuneo) means "to to kiss the hand to (towards) one, in token of reverence" and is used 60 times in the New Testament. But the word for true worshipper (proskunete) is only used once, right here. It means "a worshipper."

So the Father is seeking "a worshipper" (being) as the one who does (bows down and kissed His hand.) I see a picture of Holy Spirit on one side of the "true worshipper" and Jesus on the other - arm-in-arm- leading and guiding on how to worship in Spirit and Truth. I know I have a lot more to learn on this subject, and I look forward to exploring it with Jesus and Holy Spirit.

Anyway, back to C.O.W. I attended "The Mission" in Vacaville (which means "Cow-town" by the way) where Dave and Deborah Crone pastor. They have a "Present-Future" mind set and have given their congregation permission to dream. Actually, we were not only given permission, but had examples highlighted from the pulpit and classes on how to do it.

I finished one such class in Spring of 2007 where God clarified my mission and solidified my COW legs. My current mission is to be with a team of Noble Comrades, creating kingdom stuff to change the world.

I have seen a vision of me flying on a cow, and I believe the structure of C.O.W. that He is giving me will be how I live out my mission. So here are the 4 legs the C.O.W. ministry will stand on:

PRODUCTS: I have written many, many 'stories in rhyme of Heavenly places' that will be published as children's books and distributed internationally. I also act, paint and sing, and believe God will bring forth products in these areas too.

PRODUCTIONS: I have loved drama since I was a child. Not only do I act, but I write and produce plays. These productions will be visual expressions of the Kingdom of God coming to earth, and will create atmospheres for God to show up and be glorified.

PLATFORM: I have had, and believe I will have more opportunity to paint, sing, and worship from the "platform" (during praise and worship services) to release breakthrough and a prophetic sound/color.

PREPARATION: I have taught students in the area of creative arts and believe God will give me further opportunity to help train the Bride of Christ in her C.O.W. self!

I'm also an intercessor, and creatively pray and stand in the gap for people, companies and people groups. This paradigm comes into play often, and I stay in close communion with God, walking with Him through "assignments."
