God’s Miracles; Behind the Scenes of This #1 Best Seller
What a powerful book. Incredible stories of real people sharing their transforming miracles. I want to share a rare behind the scenes look at how this came about because its not often that anyone is transparent enough to ever tell you what I’m about to.
One night I was laying in bed in a half awake-half asleep state, when this image appeared in my mind. It was of a cloudy sky with a very bright white light, shining through the night against a dark sky. I thought it might be coming from what appeared to be a lighthouse, but I wasn’t sure.
I remember asking God what this image of light was in my dream when all of a sudden pictures of people’s faces began flashing in my eyes and flying past my face. Pictures of people I knew, relatives and friends, and then pictures of people I didn’t know, but who appeared to be from all over the world. I didn’t understand why I was seeing these faces or what it meant.
As the final picture faded I saw a light draw away from the clouds in the sky. In this opening I saw the words, “God’s Miracles”.
A bit perplexed by it all I asked, “What is this about God?”
The reply was instantaneous. “Your next book.”
I’m not a writer
I’ve never considered myself a writer. If I’m being totally transparent I’d even go so far as to say I don’t like to write because I’m not great with grammar. I remember all too well those big red ink C-’s I use to get in high school on every essay I ever tried to write. I definitely wasn’t interested in writing another book! Particularly one that others from all around the world were suppose to write because I’ve heard so many stories of how tough it is to do a collaborative work on that level. Besides, I was quite certain Chicken Soup for The Soul Series had already done it!
“God,” I began, “Am I really suppose to create another book for you? Are all of these faces I’m seeing suppose to be the one’s to write it? And if so, how am I suppose to connect with them, or know who they a….re?”
The reply I heard in my spirit came immediately before I got the last word out. “You are not to write in this book. These are stories from people who need to be reminded of their healing, and my restorative power.”
Whoa…I got that message loud and clear. To say I acted on it immediately would be a lie. I began to procrastinate. I honestly didn’t know where to begin, but I didn’t bring it back to God either. I’d written, and published, several books before, surely I could do this task without bothering God again. Besides, this is precisely how my first book “Connecting Faith, Hope and Love; Wake Up To a New Life!”came about.
It was 4 am and God show me the cover, graphics and title of that book as well. On a plane from Hawaii to Michigan I wrote the entire book in fourteen hours. Surely this would happen in the same manner – right?
I don’t know about you, but as an organized person I know what happens to me when a ‘monkey wrench’ gets thrown into my plans. Everything gets thrown off course and I procrastinate because I don’t know where to start. I once knew a man who would pick up carpet fibers when he got overwhelmed. We all turn inward when we don’t know where to start a project.
Well…when a mandate to do something comes from the creator of the Universe, well… you know… you can still choose to do or not do it, but in the end you’ll wished you had anyway so you might as well just ‘git ‘er done’.
I decided to put up a page for the book submissions on my website so people could submit their stories. I dragged my feet on promoting that link to anyone, however, until one day I put it up on Facebook and told people what it was about.
For a few days nothing really happened. Then, out of no where, people began asking questions. I began to answer them and encouraged them to go to the link and submit. Every submitted story was then filtered into my email.
About 2 weeks later I had my first 5 stories. I was glad but figured it was going to take many more stories as I had seen about 101 different faces. A few weeks later I had 15 more stories, a few more weeks and I had 30 more stories. Soon I had lots and LOTS of stories pouring in from everywhere. I was amazed. I was also utterly overwhelmed.
Questions raced through my mind like, “How in the world would I have time to read all these stories!?” “How will I know which ones to publish and which one’s to set aside?” “How would I tell those who’s didn’t get selected that they didn’t get selected?” No answers came.
Six months later
One sunny afternoon I was walking my dog and thought about where they book was, or wasn’t moving ahead. Then I thought of a better question to ask God. “Why did you want this book to be called, “God’s Miracles?”
The answer came immediately, “Because people believe in miracles. Healing and restoration is a large part of that belief. As they shared, (meaning the authors), they are healed. As they read, (meaning the reader who reads the book) they are restored.”
WOW! It didn’t take long before I realized that in my previous questions to God there was a little bit of “I” trouble. “How will I have time, how will I know, how will I tell?” So sad that my EGO had made it all about me. No wonder I procrastinated on it for so long.
God doesn’t work that way
There are things being established for you without you knowing it because if you did know it you’d make it all about you too! God knows that about us. Its human nature. Even right now, at this very moment, though you are unaware, healing, joy, wealth, knowledge, all these things and more are being added unto you.
ALL good things come from God.
Soon after, a team of reviewers came along. Then an editor, a graphic artist, an assistant, a team of brain stormers, someone who wanted to write the forward for the book, someone to convert the book to Kindle format, on and on came the people I needed right when I needed them! You see – only God could arrange all this.
TODAY… 15 months later, with the help of my entire TEAM who worked diligently to get this book out to the world (in a digital Kindle format), we launched God’s Miracles; True Stories of Healing and Restoration and it became a #1 BEST SELLER! I was THRILLED for all of the authors who contributed. This book is just one of many in the series and it’s so, so, so POWERFUL! The authors are just like you, and just like me, ordinary people who experienced extraordinary things all because of a God who loves us unconditionally.
We’re still looking for more authors. More every day people who’ve experienced God in ways others only dream about but need to be reminded is very, very, real.
Are you ready?!
Go here if you know in your spirit that you’re ready. http://www.Connecting101.org/miracles
If you believe there is a God who loves us, or even if you don’t believe there is a God who loves us but you want to be inspired, you will want to read these powerful stories. You simply cannot imagine what the human body can go through and how God can intervene on our behalf in spite of the decisions we often make that are not in our best interest.
Until next time…Always Love,
Kellie Frazier – Author of the collaborative book – God’s Miracles
