"Nearly twenty years ago, I saw a picture of a shipwreck. I was in the water along with others among the wreckage, and Jesus was standing on the beach. I clawed my way to the beach, and I heard Jesus tell me to look back out into the water at those who were still struggling. He said that the beach was His presence and that I was to go back out there and help those struggling to find their way to the “Beach of His Presence.”
I pray that God will use this book to accomplish just that—to help you desire and find His presence. May your journey with God take first place in your life, and may you enjoy His sweet presence more frequently and intimately each day as you walk with Him."
"With the Word of God, years of wisdom and prayer, and vivid word pictures inspired by the Holy Spirit...Deanne creates this practical masterpiece. Here I Am opens an avenue leading to fulfillment with Jesus Christ...hearing His voice and walking in His love." - Gina Moroney, author of Living in His Presence
"I enjoy the way that God speaks to Deanne and how she is able to capture the truth and present it in a way that is easy to understand and apply to your life. The nuggets of wisdom will be a great source of encouragement to you." - Pastor Kim DeMey, Jubilee Fellowship Church
"This book is not about theology, but rather is about relationship:
Pastor Craig Hill and his wife, Jan, live near Denver, Colorado, USA. Craig and Jan give senior leadership to Family Foundations International (FFI). FFI is a non-profit Christian ministry through which life-changing seminars are conducted in many nations of the world. Craig has written several books, including his best seller, The Ancient Paths
The purpose of Family Foundations is to help churches re-establish in families the biblical foundations that cause life to work and people to prosper from one generation to the next. The primary tool which the Lord has given us to initiate this process, is the Family Foundations Ancient Paths Seminar (Formerly, "From Curse To Blessing"). In the Ancient Paths Seminar, we identify and minister to the participants regarding seven critical times in life when we are more vulnerable to receive either "God’s true image", or "Satan’s false image" of our own identity and destiny.
Craig Hill book, The Ancient Paths, provides a more complete description of the material covered in the Basic Seminar and the overall ministry of Family Foundations International. If you wish to order this book, or other books and audio teachings from our Bookstore please call, fax or phone us at the ministry address and phone numbers. I look forward to partnering with you in the restoration of biblical family foundations in the lives of God’s people throughout the world.
