A Year to Enlarge
“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.” Isaiah 54:2
Welcome to 2023; a year of expansion. This is not a year to hold back. If anything, this is the year that we’ve been being prepared for. If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s how to learn to stand firm in the midst of the storms. I’m not suggesting that 2023 will be a year without storms, just the opposite. This is a year for remaining steadfast as the winds of cultural adversity howl around us.
Further on in Isaiah chapter 54, Isaiah talks about the Noahic covenant, and then states:
“In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you. If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you.” Isaiah 54:14, 15
It is our commitment to walk in righteousness, which protects us from the onslaught of wickedness in our culture. We must not cave in to false accusations and slander from those who would seek to silence us in speaking the truth.
In December, I wrote a couple of letters; one to the editor of the Meaford Independent, (CLICK HERE) a smalltown newspaper; the second, a longer research-based letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford, and Minister of Health, Sylvia Jones. (CLICK HERE). Both are These are important reads. Our voices must be heard, or we will end up being silenced forever.
Damaged by the Predators Among Us
Also, in December, my long-awaited book Damaged by the Predators Among Us, was published. You may order it from me directly. at Restoring the Mosaic website. or from Amazon.com, if that is more convenient.
Two New Books
My book, Implosion will be published in February.
I have also completed a children’s book about two young girls, their friendship through elementary school, and the traumatic events leading to Emily’s declaration of becoming a boy. A pastor friend sent this draft to another author who responded with these words:
“I just finished reading Ann Gillies’ book. It is excellent! It is not only impressive content-wise, but is written in a captivating style. Often when I am given something to read and critique, I cringe. It is difficult to figure out how to answer when I am thinking, “Oh dear, this is not good writing at all.” Well, I don’t have that problem, here! This is not only excellent writing, but it gently conveys so much specific information on this crucial topic. The style of writing Ann chose is important, because youngsters will not read a lecture. But this is an engaging story. Excellently done!” Ellie Klipp, author
Needless to say, this was a tremendous encouragement to me. I plan on writing a series about Hannah and her friend, Emily. It is written primarily for children ages 8 t0 13, and I include a Parent Study Guide.
Coming This Saturday
I am teaching a workshop called Walking Free, this Saturday, January 7th 9:00 AM -2:00 PM (Eastern) at Durham Foursquare Gospel Church, 191 Grafaxa St, Durham, Ontario (CLICK HERE). This workshop will focus on the issue of rejection: A-Z! If you live in Grey, Bruce, Simcoe and Dufferin counties, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain wisdom and understanding into the emotional events holding you back from walking free in Spirit, Soul and Body. Hope to see you, Saturday.
As we move full swing into this new year, I will continue to keep you abreast of what is currently happening in regards to gender ideology and the ongoing battle to protect our most vulnerable.
May 2023 be a year of plenty and blessing to each one of you.
Onward and Upward,
STAND FIRM — WALK CAUTIOUSLY — LIVE COURAGEOUSLY
