    Divine Detour with Lori Ann Wood: when a crisis throws your life off course

    Divine Detour with Lori Ann Wood: when a crisis throws your life off course

    When Lori Ann Wood found her life drastically altered by a medical crisis, she learned it was a divine detour leading her to answer three urgent questions we all wrestle with. Wood's new book, Divine Detour, will release in February 2023. 
    Get Lori's free Resource, Hope for the Life You Didn't Choose at: https://lorieannwood.com/hope 
    Learn more about her upcoming book at https://loriannwood.com/books 
    Guest Bio:
    Lori Ann Wood lives in the shadow of the Ozark Mountains in beautiful Bentonville, Arkansas, with her husband, the unsuspecting guy she chased all the way from 9th grade to grad school. She is mom to three world-changing young adults, one impressive son-in-law (who all live too far away) and a miniature dachshund named Pearl (who threatens to never leave). Her new favorite role is appropriately spoiling her granddaughter Hazel.
    In addition to receiving the Frederick Buechner Narrative Essay Award from The Christian Century Magazine, her work has won awards from The Colorado Christian Writers Association and The Evangelical Press Association. Lori Ann has been published in numerous print journals including Just Between Us Magazine, The Joyful Life Magazine, Bella Grace Magazine, Heart Insight Magazine, and Sweet to the Soul FAITH Magazine. Her articles have also appeared on websites such as Pepperdine University Press, Yahoo Lifestyle, and MSN, and on blogs including Women | Faith & Story, Kindred Mom, WomenHeart, and The Mighty. Lori Ann also serves on the Blog Contributor Team for The Joyful Life Magazine.
    But Lori Ann has not always been a writer.
    A life detour reordered her priorities and rattled her faith.
    In 2015, despite otherwise pristine health, Lori Ann almost died from heart failure from an unknown cause. Her heart was functioning at just 6%. She spent 14 days in ICU as doctors tried to save her life. Lori Ann was then transferred to the Cleveland Clinic where she became her doctor’s most critical patient for a year and a half. She was eventually implanted with a pacemaker and internal defibrillator. Against all medical odds, her heart function was initially restored sixteen months later. But as heart failure goes, her condition has experienced ups-and-downs since then. And as the Christian walk goes, so has her faith.
    Having discovered this chronic, progressive condition almost too late, Lori Ann now writes to encourage difficult faith questions along the detours of life. Her passion is to connect with readers and help them hold onto their faith when they find themselves on a path they didn’t choose.
    Her first book, Divine Detour: The Path You Didn’t Choose Can Lead to the Faith You’ve Always Wanted, will release in early 2023. Find her at https://loriannwood.com.

    Unchartered Territory with Teresa Janzen

    Unchartered Territory with Teresa Janzen

    Have you ever felt like you've suddenly gone off course  - detoured into unchartered territory? Teresa Janzen shares a ministry report and message that will encourage you on your journey - even when you have no idea what the future holds. 

    Lewis and Clark, the famous explorers,  navigated the Missouri River. They were expert river navigators, and they had a whole team of people with them called the Corp of Discovery.
     They were given the commission by the President of the United States to find a water passage to the Pacific Ocean. This is going to be a game changer for the US for trade and development and all that type of stuff. And they navigated to the source of the Missouri.  and when they crested the mountain expecting to find a river on the other side, what they found was the Rocky Mountains—big surprise.
     Sometimes you go into a situation thinking that you know what's going to be ahead. You've prepared for it. You took courses for it, you studied for it, you've held committee meetings for it, you've set budgets for it, and you crest the mountain and think you're going to move forward.  And all of a sudden you find yourself in a situation that you hadn't planned on, and nothing that you've done in the past has prepared you for it.
     If you feel stuck in a rut and unable to move forward, get Teresa’s free guide, “Get Out of that Rut!” https://teresajanzen.com/unstuck/

    It's Not too Late to Follow Your Dreams

    It's Not too Late to Follow Your Dreams

    You have a dream, but something has held you back from pursuing it. It’s never too late to start doing what you know God has called you to do. 
    Patrick E Craig started out as a successful musician, but felt something was missing. When he turned to faith, he left the music business to go to Bible school, but something still wasn’t right. He finally realized that his passion and his ministry could be found in writing.
    Get the book – The Men of Amish Fiction, a Christmas Collection - https://amzn.to/3PAeDIG

    Guest Bio:
    Best-selling author, Patrick E. Craig, is a lifelong writer and musician who left a successful performance career in 1986 to become a pastor. After pastoring, teaching and speaking at seminars in churches on the west coast for many years, he retired in 2007 to concentrate on writing and publishing fiction books. In November 2011, Patrick signed a three-book deal with Harvest House Publishers to publish his Apple Creek Dreams series. His latest books, The Amish Heiress, The Amish Princess, and The Mennonite Queen, and the reprinted Apple Creek Dreams series are published by his own imprint, P&J Publishing, and all have spent time on the "Hot New releases" and "Amazon Best Seller" lists on Amazon. Harlequin Publishing recently purchased The Amish Heiress for their new Walmart Amish promotion series and that book will is now available in Walmart stores across the country. He also recently signed with Elk Lake Publishing to publish his Middle School/YA mystery series, The Adventures of Punkin and Boo. Patrick is represented by the Steve Laube Agency.
    Patrick has an extensive background as a writer. Throughout his school years he edited high school and college newspapers. In 1964 he won a national editorial contest sponsored by the Wall Street Journal for an editorial he wrote on the death of President Kennedy, and, in the same year, acted as Senior Editor for a special issue of the University of Washington Evergreen during a summer internship for High School Editors. After a year at Whitman College, where he was a journalism major, he moved to the San Francisco Bay area where he became a fixture on the local music scene.
    As a professional songwriter, he wrote with and for such artists as Bill Champlin (Chicago), David Jenkins (Pablo Cruise), Buddy Miles, The Tazmanian Devils, and many others in the secular music industry. His songs were recorded by such artists and music groups as West Coast Natural Gas, Indian Pudding and Pipe, Joey Covington's Fat Fandango, The Sons of Champlin, The Tazmanian Devils, Buddy Miles, David Jenkins, Laura Allen, The Fairfax Street Choir and in Europe by the Swedish Band Seid. He had two music albums released on Warner Brothers records with The Tazmanian Devils and contributed as a performer and recording engineer to best selling albums by artists such as Chris Isaak and others. 
    As a performer he played keyboards and sang with bands such as West Coast Natural Gas, Indian Pudding and Pipe, Van Morrison, Joe E. Covington, The Kantner-Balin Band, The New Boogaloo Express, The Fairfax Street Choir, The Tazmanian Devils, David Jenkins, Buddy Miles, and many others. 
    Now as a full-time fiction writer he turns out two to three books every year and is fast-gaining a reputation in the literary world.

Love 💗

This is just the podcast I needed! I’m loving the conversations and guests that Teresa brings us on such important topics!

Mairmitchell ,

So good

It's easy in the church to downplay how hard life can be. Experiencing God's abundance isn't easy. I love how this podcast helps bring that to the forefront. Encouraging walking closer with the Lord.
