I am a California native that has lived and worked in the Bay Area for most of my life.  I love living in the shadows of Mt Diablo and never tire of looking at our beautiful hills either brown or green.  The Bay Area has so many things to offer from the great vistas overlooking San Francisco Bay to the ocean and redwoods.  What a great place to see God’s beauty first hand!

I was an elementary and middle school teacher for over 30 years, and still teach part time working with Home and Hospital students.  I love getting to bond with my students as I work with them one on one.

For years I have been a Children’s Leader in Bible Study Fellowship.  The technique of drawing out lessons and truths from God’s word is something I practiced on a weekly basis.  You can never plumb the depths of God’s word.  Even if you study a certain book of the Bible one year and then study it several years later you  learn different things.  You are never the same person from one year to the next and your circumstances and challenges are always changing.  God is constantly growing me and teaching me new life lessons.

I never expected to write a book.

I started with a word study about fear.  I was experiencing a lot of troubles in my life and was living fearfully.  I heard a speaker say there were 365 references to not having fear in the Bible.  I thought, “I’m a pretty good Bible Student, and I don’t remember seeing that many.”  The search that began with my own Bible concordance expanded into my own book.  I discovered there are 70 references where we are told specifically to not have fear, and the rest of the 295 are about having fear.  The fear we are to have is to be directed towards God Almighty.

Once I began writing my book, Fearless Living, I realized that I thoroughly enjoyed the writing process.  I relied on God to provide the inspiration for my second book, Promises for Dynamic Living, about God’s promises for us.

I am trying to help people to see that God’s word is viable and can be applied to our lives each and every day of the year!

Besides writing and teaching, I love to read, quilt, watch my grandson, travel, and study God’s word.  God has given me many opportunities to work with others in spreading a love for His Word!

    • What a small world. I am in the same class and am a Children’s lead with her. She is a blessing to me and was my grandson’s teacher last year. This was a real encouragement to me today.

  2. You are the same as you were forty years ago. Your steadfastness and devotion to God are inspiring.
    May you have many more years of service to God.

  3. My dear mother and servant of most high God,
    It is my prayer that the Almighty God will bless you for the work of the Kingdom that you are doing in the body of Christ. I have been looking for teachings materials from the internet and God directed me to your website where I went through it. You may not know but I was blessed and I felt ministered to in my spirit. I pray that it will continue ministering to many people around the world. After going through your website, I felt that God is leading me to commit my time to pray for you together with my family and the intercessors in our church that you may also be a blessing to many people across the world. I believe it was by the revelation of the Lord that you had to set up that website to minister to many souls. I would also love to receive any kind of teachings materials from you to help my leaders here.

    I believe we are living in the last days where the devil is out to fight the servants of God. It is for this reason I will commit you into my prayers that you will always be protected by the blood of Jesus Christ and God will always go ahead of you to level all mountains that may want to exalt themselves before you and hinder you from seeing the blessings of the Lord and breakthrough in your ministry. That God will fill all the valleys with His glory in that you will walk in the glory of God. You are blessed and know you are covered in our prayers.
    keep also praying for us and that if it is God’s will he may lead you here in Kenya sometimes to be a blessing to the people of this land. This land has gone through a lot of stuff, We need the men and women of God with a really touching message to transform the lives of many. We will be more than willing to help plan a good meeting and invite people from all directions to be blessed by the Word God would have given you for them. It is really my desire that Kenya will again experience revival through the men and women God will send them in this land. Keep praying and see what the Lord leads.
    I have been in full time ministry for the last 8 years and God has been teaching me a lot. Currently God has given me the desire to reach out to the dying churches and help strengthen them, this is by organizing the revival meetings and discipleship conferences with my people reaching those in the darkness having imprisoned by Satan and God Delivered us to the Truth and faith hoping one day we will sit in the same table of brotherhood with Jesus Christ being our CAPTAIN, as Paul quotes’’ whether quickly or not, I pray God that not only you but also all who are listening to me today might become such I am-except for this chains. Acts26:29The savior Has given us His precious life in order to establish a ministry capable of caring the sorrowful, tempted souls. A group of believers may be poor, uneducated and unknown; yet in Christ, they may do a work of the lord whose result shall be as for reaching eternity. This will testify that we have not received the grace of God in vain.
    It is the desire of my heart to see people come to the Lord, Disciples/ trained and send out to reach many. This can only be done if we join our efforts together, regardless of what we are and where we come from.

    I would be looking forward to hear from you soon.
    Yours in the Lord’s services
    Pastor Richard Nyakwara

    Yours In Christ
