Before we go….

….we thought we’d share some details with you on our first book, The Complaining Cure: How to Quit Grumbling, Stop Criticizing, and Find Abundant Joy.  We haven’t said too much about it and thought you might like to hear some details.

3d - Complaing Cure CoverWe wrote this book to share the amazing things God showed us as He prepared us to navigate one of the greatest storms in our life. This book tells the story of God’s goodness to us as He revealed the crippling sin of complaining and criticism in our life. We had no idea how deeply we were affected by this sin. And in a display of true faithfulness, He also gave us the grace we needed to break-free and find abundant joy.

While we are not perfect at this and continue to partner with Holy Spirit in this area, we cannot explain to you how powerfully this has impacted our lives. We are not the same! The joy we now live in is deep and wide, enabling us to navigate through stressful and difficult situations with more peace that we could have ever imagined.

We want you to know this same freedom too. So, we invite you to go on this journey with us and discover how joyful a life free from complaining and criticism can be. We promise you will not regret the investment of your time, efforts and resources to take this journey because we know from first-hand experience the great rewards that lie ahead. We encourage you to get a friend or two, read the book and take the Challenge together, holding each other accountable as you go. You will not be disappointed!

To purchase the printed book, click here. If you purchase 8 or more printed books you will receive a bulk discount.

If you have any questions or if we can help you in your journey to freedom, please don’t hesitate to contact us! You can email us at

We’re looking forward to taking this adventure with you!

Thought to share: Patience is the word I give you today. Not everything will go your way and not everything will make you happy. Trust that I AM leading you and that MY grace will empower you to shine light in those trying situations. And as you wait, choose to rest in ME and refuse to make room for frustration and impatience. You’ll find your day goes much better when you walk in patience – and you will be able to display MY kindness.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:  joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

1Corinthians 13:4 (TPT) Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all.

Thought to share: Worry blocks MY Presence. Worry prevents you from hearing MY voice. Worry will keep you from seeing MY hand working in your situation. I tell you not to worry because worry disconnects you from ME. So when worry presents itself to you, convert them into prayer, laying them all at MY feet. And as you do, I’ll exchange those worries for MY peace.

Matthew 6:25-34 (TPT) This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing? Look at all the birds—do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they? So, which one of you by worrying could add anything to your life? And why would you worry about your clothing? Look at all the beautiful flowers of the field. They don’t work or toil, and yet not even Solomon in all his splendor was robed in beauty more than one of these! So if God has clothed the meadow with hay, which is here for such a short time and then dried up and burned, won’t he provide for you the clothes you need—even though you live with such little faith? So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Thought to share: Don’t become stressed, anxious or angry when you encounter difficulties. These bumps in the road are opportunities for a miracle. Problems are occasions for ME to show MY glory. Complications are a chance for you to see MY supernatural strength and power actively working in your life. Celebrate these instances where the road is not smooth and the way is not clear because these are times I can display MY strength in you!

2Corinthians 12:9-10 (TPT) But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you,and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.

James 1:2-4 (TPT) My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.
