Marja Verschoor-Meijers was born and raised in Holland. As a child Marja was fascinated by authors who divided their time between two countries. Over the years, she became one of them! She and husband Jan divided their time between Holland and Southern California for years, where Jan worked as a race car technician in off-road racing and Marja enjoyed writing.

Her book Grace of Giving was awarded gold at the Readers Favorite 2011 Awards in the category Christian Non-Fiction, while her latest book 'In My Name' was a finalist in the 2018 Awards, category Christian Devotion and Bible study.

I am self-publishing my books, I have done so for a few years, even before Tate went out of business. It is a great way to get your work out, but I would like to add: make sure you have a good editor.(less)

Light of the world (3)

'Light shines in the darkness, we certainly do our best with all our lights and candles during the dark winter season. But let's not forget, the One who can truly take us out of darkness (enlighten us), the real light is Jesus! With those words I ended my previous blog.
How wonderful when a person receives that revelation. Let's take a look at someone who experienced that a long time ago ...

In My Name (Religion & Spirituality)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 09, 2018 09:01AM
Description: ‘Lord’ is not a word to end our sentences with when we talk to Him, nor is it a filler to make our prayers sound more holy and authentic. ‘Lord’ is His personal revelatory name and He gave it to us for use on a daily basis. It is one thing to claim we don’t use the Lord’s name in vain, but what do we do? Are we bringing honor to His name? Do we have a genuine love for His name? And most of all, is everything we do and say then, done in His name? The letter of the Old Testament law says ‘do not use the Lord’s name in vain’, Jesus however urges every believer to ‘honor His holy name’. We will find out how such a commandment can become practical and applicable for believers today, not by focusing on what we cannot and should not do, but by focusing on what the Holy Spirit wants to do in us and through us. The Holy Spirit desires to change us from the inside out. May we all discover a new and fresh way to bring honor to His name. May we use God’s name with power, purpose and reverence in effective ministry all over the world and in doing so be a generation that fulfills the ancient scriptures right here and now in the 21st century.
Spirit of Truth (Religion & Spirituality)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 19, 2016 09:21AM
Description: Is it possible to live and speak the truth? Is it possible to stand up for biblical values and principles in a troubled world that has taken a free fall into lawlessness? The letter of the Old Testament Law says ‘do not accuse anyone falsely’, the Spirit says ‘speak truth’. The Holy Spirit will always urge us to change from the inside out. In this book we will take a closer look at Truth, yes, with a capital T, and discover its awesome power and identity.
