Jane wrote the words that God spoke to her during her daily Bible readings and time with Him. The words recorded in Spirit Calling are a powerful call from God, inviting me and inviting you to sit at His feet, to listen for His voice, and to open our hearts to experience the depths of His love. Reading God's words in Spirit Calling convicts my heart to seek Him more in every moment of every day.

It is amazing that so often as I read "Spirit Calling" that the voice from God for that day applies to a situation that I may be facing and gives me the answer or encouragement to face that day. I really like that the scripture is there for me to read as I listen to His words.

Tell us a little about yourself. I cannot really claim to be the "Author" of SPIRIT CALLING, because every Word is His. I just got to be the listener, and record these precious Words that the Lord Whispered from His Heart to mine. These Words could not have been composed in my feeble brain. In 2000, I got Encephalitis, which is a brain infection that caused severe damage to my cognitive thinking skills. The Lord has given me miracle upon miracle to heal me in many ways since the onset of Encephalitis and the resulting nerve damage that has caused Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia, Vasculitis, and Lupus-like symptoms.
What was your motivation behind this project? When I was at my worst from the severe symptoms of the Encephalitis and the nerve damage, I felt so worthless. And one day, as I was journaling my thoughts and prayers to the Lord, He whispered these first precious Words to my heart, "You are Mine. That is what gives you worth." And over the next 3 years, His whispers went from coming only 6 or 7 times that first year, to coming each day that I spent intimate time with Him. And through many miraculous Ways, He made it clear to my heart that I really was to compile all these Precious Words that His Powerful, yet Gentle Spirit had been calling to my heart . . . and now to yours.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I pray that these Words will penetrate the heart of each reader, and draw them deep into His Presence ~~ in deeper and deeper intimacy with Him each day. And I pray that He will reveal Himself to them as their Lover, their Healer, their Provider, their Comforter, their Encourager, their most intimate Friend and Constant Companion, and Powerful Lord ~~ and His Spirit will speak to their heart deeply each day.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? As the Lord whispered these Thoughts to my heart, I was overwhelmed by His Presence and His Love. He drew me into deeper intimacy with Him than I had ever experienced. And as I sought and tried to discern which Scriptures to include each day, I was so often amazed at how His Whispers were echoed in those Scriptures.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Michael & Cherrie Kaylor were such an inspiration to me as I was wondering if I was really to get SPIRIT CALLING published. I heard them speak twice during that time, and as Cherrie spoke about "Kisses from Heaven" -- those very special Gifts God gives us to let us know we're loved -- I received one of these Words. And I realized then, that these are my very special "Kisses from Heaven."
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I'm working on my manuscript for my second daily devotional, SPIRIT CALLING ENCOURAGEMENT. This one will be in journal form, so that you can record what the Lord speaks to your heart each day, as you read His Whispers of Encouragement and Love.
