How Did The Way of the Worshipper Get Started?

I hold an M.A. in Journalism from Regent University and a B.A. in Broadcasting from Geneva College and I have worked as a multi-media journalist for the past 15 years. I am also a pastor’s kid (!), a worship leader and songwriter… and VERY REAL PERSON with all the same pitfalls, challenges and trials we all face! But above it all, I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and I love to worship Him for who He is, what He has done and because He created me for a relationship with Him that is made stronger through worship!

I was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write the book, The Way of the Worshipper (Available on Amazon) as a way to support and encourage my own faith and then faith of the body of Christ because I saw over and over that many others were like me and had questions, needed help, wanted to go deeper into the Word of God and desired to connect to the Lord more intimately. The journalist in me started digging and searching the Word and the Lord has been faithful to bring an eye-opening, life-changing understanding of God’s deliberate design for worship and praise!

After publishing the original book, I decided to go back and write a supplemental “Devotional Workbook” (Also available on Amazon, click here) to expand and fortify the Word in a much more personal way. This book will take you into a journey of yourself and will help you explore more deeply your own spiritual history and experiences in your faith, and will help you reframe any old ways of thinking and teach you new foundations in praise and worship that are Scriptural, and will encourage your spirit as you learn and grow.

It’s my desire that The Way of the Worshipper help facilitate a deeper connection with the Spirit of God through understanding the purposes for which God created worship and what worship means to Him, so that each believer can walk in victory over the enemy in all areas of life. I firmly believe that worship is the most attacked and most misunderstood and most misused weapon of spiritual warfare. The journalist in me loves to dig and as I continued to delve into the Word of God on the subject of worship, was born- to keep digging deeper!

Here are the some of the most popular devotional Bible studies at The Way of the Worshipper to get you started:

Friends, together let’s “Run the race that is set before us,” (Hebrews 12:1-2) with knowledge, endurance and strength. Three of the most necessary tools any believer can have!
