Illustrations about the truths from God’s word can come from almost anything, even inanimate objects. As shown in her latest book, Pots, Pans and Prophecies, my featured author does just that. She explains how just like ordinary cooking utensils do not dictate the process, but are instead the containers for producing delicious meals, we must likewise yield our lives as vessels, in order for God to fulfill His wondrous purposes through us.
Today’s featured author, speaker, and longtime friend of mine is,
Rhonda K. Holland

Pots, Pans and Prophecies is the third of Rhonda’s books in the Kindle the Power series. Using her engaging writing style, Rhonda takes participants on a journey with Mary, the mother of Jesus. In it, she shows how Mary’s life precisely modeled that of a yielded vessel of honor for God’s use, and how He chose for her for this marvelous calling because she was clean, accessible, willing, and able to take the heat.
However, Mary’s call was not without problems. Like her, after receiving a promise from God, we may face delays or difficulties. These hard ingredients can bring discouragement, causing us to lose sight of the revelation. As sour or bitter ingredients are often necessary components of tasty meals, though, life’s hardships are many times needful lessons God uses to grow our trust in Him. Just like for Mary, He wants us to continue believing, as we wait in anticipation of the promise fulfilled.
Written as studies, Rhonda travels extensively in order to present her books as seminars and minister to groups about each one. However, they are also great when studied alone or along with her DVD’s.
I studied her recent book alone, but included my mom when reading another,
Coins, Covenant and Character, which is a study about restoration based on the woman with the lost coin. Rhonda’s insights from the Lord in this book are remarkable. She describes, then shows how He wants our own lost coins restored to strengthen our covenant walk with Him.
I have not yet read her first release, Giants, Grapes and Grasshoppers, but am looking forward to doing so. From the description on the website, this study, on facing our personal giants by abiding in the shadow of the Most High God, is sure to further equip us for spiritual warfare.
Rhonda is not only a wonderful author, speaker and minister, she is also a delightful person and friend. Although we attend different denominations, we are like-minded in our passion for Christ, and for seeing a mighty move of the Holy Spirit in these troubled times in which we live.
Whether from reading her earlier books or her newest, Pots, Pans and Prophecies, Rhonda is sure to alliterate her messages straight to your heart, through her encouraging insights and life-changing messages of truth.
