I’m Vanessa.

My purpose is to uplift, encourage and inspire you.

Welcome to vanessainspirz.com

Panel 1


I love to encourage through teaching and writing — devotions, articles, blogs, books, marketing material, social media posts, poetry and more. For writing samples, take a look at my portfolio. And don’t forget to check out the book page, featuring my devotional book, “Intimate Moments: A 40-Day Journey in the Psalms.”

I’m honored to inspire as a watchman through messages, revelations, and dreams on my blog.

I immensely enjoy traveling to faraway places like Peru and India — where I teach, serve in whatever capacity I am needed; and uplift with hope, healing and love.

So, I listen. I write. I share.

Grace & peace,

Panel 2


“To  uplift  the soul,  encourage  the spirit and  inspire  the heart … this is why I write.”

  • JUDGMENT - ... Nothing escapes God ... time has come for judgment ... hold fast you who follow His voice ...
  • What Can We Learn From Abigail? - ... May God do so, and more also, to the enemies of David, if I leave one male of all who belong to him by morning light ...
  • CONTROL - Is my dream about Americans being controlled by foreign soldiers with guns prophetic?
  • A Ladder, a Sword and a Challenge - If I gave you a real sword, would you store it 'safely' away, or would you be curious enough to actually learn how to use it?
  • Listen: Even in Your Dreams … There’s Power in the Name - "... it is one of the ways God communicates with us. Likewise, the enemy can attempt to do the same ..."
  • Great, fierce cloud of white, gray, light blue and dark blue hues, with lightning. 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."
  • Bright blue butterflies glowing in the dark 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.”

I’ve enjoyed writing and editing personality profiles, in-depth features, inspirational devotions, historical and travel articles, social media and marketing content, and more for many years.

In short, I write stories or refine stories others write. Many of my articles have been published in local and national magazines, as well as for website devotionals and blogs. Further details are featured on my LinkedIn profile, and writing samples are featured on my portfolio.
