My purpose is to uplift, encourage and inspire you.
Welcome to vanessainspirz.com
I immensely enjoy traveling to faraway places like Peru and India — where I teach the word of God; serve in whatever capacity I am needed; and UPLIFT with hope, healing and love.
I love to ENCOURAGE through writing — devotions, articles, books, marketing material, social media posts and poetry — through teaching God’s word on the mission field; and through prayer.
I’m honored to INSPIRE with messages and warnings from God, revealed through His word and by listening to Him, as I fulfill my calling as a watchman.
So, I listen. I write. I share.
All three of the areas above intrigue me and can lead me on a wild chase, practically anytime. They are passions. I read once that if you are not doing it, it’s not a passion.
Grace & peace,
“To uplift the soul, encourage the spirit and inspire the heart … this is why I write.”
- What Can We Learn From Ezekiel? - "When the creatures stopped, they lowered their wings ..."
- Listen: A Lion, A Girl & Oppression - " ... all the people looked disheveled and/or sad, oppressed. So, I walked in and asked what happened to the place. No one gave me an answer ..."
- GIDEON – Man of Valor - "OK, you brought me through the obstacles to get here, but now that the show is about to go down, will you be with me then, too?"
- Just Listen - "Some don’t even try to know Me. They think it’s too difficult because they are watching others."
- First Dust Then Life - "... I’m at the bottom of the well with no rope, and no one can hear me. I feel awful and I’m mad at God. Thanks for asking. Bye.”
- Listen: Mountains & Hills - ... many people were running into the forest, most with just the clothes on their backs ...
- Turn Your Back - ... Against systems and governments that make futile attempts to block My way ...
- India – Angels Among Us - "Like the heroes of old, you are also heroes of the faith.”
- Prayer Partners Rock - “My relationship with God keeps me centered, and these two amazing prayer partners help keep me focused—on my overall purpose from God, on what truly matters in life.”
“While listening to the heartbeat of my spirit … to the tune of creativity … I write the rhythm I hear.”
