Relevant and Timely Encouragements!
As your church service approaches the same time every week, are you struggling to make time for spiritual preparation? Does worship sometimes feel more like a task than an expression? Do you often feel alone in your pursuits as a leader or worshiper?
This well organized and timely book delivers tried and tested wisdom that can strengthen your leadership and encourage your team. It will save you time as it puts succinct, season-specific devotionals in ONE easy-to-access place.
Whether you’re a worship leader or a church attending Christian, you have experienced worship as warfare, spiritually and sometimes physically, mentally, and emotionally. At the frontline of battle, there is limited time; valuable time that could be saved by having supplemental resources, proper tools and weapons, and a tested battle plan.
As someone who has studied worship of the Christian God for more than 10 years, I’ve been your shoes! I’ve been the curious onlooker bewildered by other’s expressions. I’ve been the congregant who wanted to grow in worship. I’ve led worship in a small group and a stadium. I’ve been there, and I know it can be a battle. Instead of battling alone, come alongside me and other worship soldiers as we fight together.
There are many great books on the theology of worship, but they often require the spiritual maturity of Martin Luther or New Testament Paul himself and months to read and digest.
As We Fight only takes about 5 minutes to read each week:
-52 weeks link modern church culture to specific times of the year.
-Increase your leadership equity with team members.
-Positively challenge your worship by giving fresh, measured perspectives.
Directly and immediately apply these up to date references and practical challenges to your worship experiences.
Following along with these devotionals will give you a better sense of your worship culture and help you adjust to better lead and participate. You will also learn more about deciphering truth from God versus lies from the enemy. Don’t let the enemy push you away from the truths waiting in these pages!
What’s stopping you from…
-standing prepared with better tools, weapons, and battle plans;
-gaining a deeper knowledge;
-reading one of these well-timed, thoughtfully prepared encouragements for yourself or your team THIS weekend?
“This book is unique. It is not just for worship leaders but worshippers alike. Extremely well written and choke full of supporting scripture, Michael rallies Christians from all walks of life to unite in fighting together!
I believe this is an inspired masterpiece that is structured as a guide to alleviate the demands of our schedules. The devotionals in this book are written to inspire you to conquer in as little as 5 minutes of your time each week!” -Elanah Kangara, Best-Selling Author on Amazon
“This book is definitely worth reading! It is full of challenging and encouraging wisdom from a worship leader in a local church who loves the lord and loves the church.” -Michael, Amazon Customer
“Worship is warfare and the enemy can be defeated with worship. Whether you are a worship leader or just love to worship, this is a must read weekly devotional guide to help you put your war room into perspective and gain ground. I love this statement: (Chapter One): 'These battles are the collision of God's will, man's will, and the enemy's will, each one demanding worship in one way or another, while only One is truly worthy of it.’” -MJC, Amazon Customer
“Some days it can be a struggle—a fight—to worship rightly. This book gives timely encouragement whether you lead others in worship or simply want to infuse new life into your worship.
Michael's weekly devotionals are grouped into four different fights: The Fight Against The Enemy, The Fight Against Culture, The Fight Against Flesh, and The Fight With Leadership and Team Members. Each one ties together to give an overall picture of the struggles we can face in a corporate worship setting and then gives us a way to fight through until we can attain true and authentic worship.
There were too many devotions to name that spoke right to me. Highly recommended.” -TH, Amazon Customer

It is so important to reassure your loved ones during the early stages of this disease. The more worked up they get, the more inept and useless they feel.

This is a memoir of my journey caring for two loved ones, and experiencing the loss of a third loved one to this terrible disease. Witness with me, up-close and personal, the different stages of dementia- from early signs, diagnoses, progression, and finally the heart wrenching end.
