This book shows Gods awesome power in todays chaotic world.
Power is strength, strong natural or moral abilities, potency, possessing or exerting with great force, or an inward, God-given gift.
At the end of The Wizard of Oz, we learn that Dorothy possesses the power to reach her happy destination, but didnt know how to use it! Such is the life of many Christians today.
After the resurrection, Jesus said the following to His disciples: And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth (Matthew 28:18).
This book tells how we can effectively use the power that Jesus died and rose from the dead to give us. In order to live a victorious, abundant life, we must first be plugged in to the power source. This comes by receiving Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior (being born again), being baptized in water and of the Spirit, and be directed by Gods Holy Spirit through the awesome power of prayer!
When Dorothy finds herself in the Land of Oz, she follows the instructions of the Good Witch, uses the power she already possesses, and finds her way home.
Likewise, we can exercise the power we already possess by following the commandments of the Good Shepherd (John 10:11)! Strangely, we can learn a lot from a fairy tale, cant we?

Tell us a little about yourself. I am an Ordained Minister and Pastor who God has blessed with His Love and many evangelical gifts to be used for the building up of the Body of Christ. I am happily married with two children and three grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation is to reach, inspire, encourage, and empower people from all walks of life; the saved and the unsaved; the Christian and the non-Christian; the young and the old, to live a life of peace, joy, happiness, and success through the teachings of God through Jesus Christ.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My hope is that people will be able to see their life, their struggles, their imperfections through the story of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. I am hoping that they will see the way Dorothy was ultimately successful and got home through listening and acting on the advice of the "Good Witch" which correlates to the way we will become successful and get "home" by listening to the voice and being empowered to act on the teachings of "The Good Shepard" Jesus Christ!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I found myself reliving the pain from my life's failings, struggles, issues, and problems and how I am now able to overcome them through God's Word. I found myself being uplifted by encouraging others through my life experiences to succeed by being empowered by the Scriptures, especially the teachings of Jesus Christ!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? After Jesus Christ and my parents, my personal influences in ministry and life are the many God-filled, Holy Spirit-filled pastors and ministers I've known throughout my life; the Ministries of Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, TD Jakes, and others who use every medium known to man (the church, TV, radio, books, tapes, CDs, podcasts, email, FB, Twitter and other social media), to reach the masses with The Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world!
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My objective is to inspire and enlighten others that Jesus, the teachings of Jesus, the Scriptures, Holy Spirit-filled men, women, and children of God can all be tapped into to overcome any problem in life that we have. I believe that there is no substitute for truly knowing The Living God through The Living Word for ourselves through personal study, prayer, and meditation. The Love of God for mankind is the Greatest Love of all!
