Pastor Douglass and his family have been chosen for such a supernatural transition but because of the dense fog of deception that seems to surround them, some in the Douglass family have created their own beliefs, fabricating their own sense of self; negating the truth, God’s truth, even when truth is staring them in the face. They, like many, are living lives devoid of the knowledge of who they really are and robbing themselves and those they love of their true identity and freedom. Deeply embedded lies from enemy have blinded eyes, impaired hearing and hardened hearts and Angels from the army of God have been deployed.
Dreams, supernatural revelation and actual attacks from man's ultimate foe will expose all and confirm God’s plan for Xion, Veronica, Zeborah, Bo and Pastor Douglas. Can they handle the truth and surrender? The lives of the Douglass family will never be the same and neither will you, because of THE SHIFT!"

It’s time for the eyes and hearts of the hurt and confused to be opened so that they can truly experience the freedom and power that being a true and unapologetic follower of Christ affords. So many are believing the lie of the enemy. Although stating that they are Christians, many are still in bondage. They have yet to be delivered from their fear, shame, guilt and even past rebellion. No one is getting to the root of the matter and saying what God says. We are tiptoeing. We must consult the word of God. So many need to find out who they are instead of letting the world or man define them. The truth is, only GOD can define who we are and only then can we be who God has purposed us to be.
It is my hope that people will realize while reading and once completing THE SHIFT that God is not just an grandiose ideal or unapproachable entity. God, the Creator of everything is REAL and most importantly, Jesus is waiting for us to see Him. He is patient and His love is unending. It doesn't matter what we have done. Jesus is an EVER present HELP and ANSWER in the time of our greatest challenge. We have the awesome opportunity to be everything God says we are because of Jesus’ unstoppable and unshakable affection towards us. If we stop trying fabricate our own agenda and recognize Him and all that He is, He can suddenly change (hence, THE SHIFT) our lives into ones of true purpose. He has demonstrated His unimaginable love and wants to catapult us into our awesome destiny! All He desires is a YES!
Some of my favorite authors are J. California Cooper, Michele Andrea Bowen. Stephen L. Carter and Frank Peretti.
I don't think that it would surprise many but I LOVE to teach Aerobics! It's very rewarding seeing the participants enjoy the choreographed routine and not even realize that they are burning calories. It so enjoyable to watch lives transform! Seeing people sweat and praise, ( I use Gospel House music) at the same time is a joy!
