Pastor Stephanie Johnson is an Evangelist and a Pastor for Christian Life Ministries of Orlando. She oversees “Feed the Community” for Christian Life Ministries. She is the author of “Victory After the Storm," which is an autobiographical novel on seeing God’s presence in your situation, no matter what the situation might be.
Pastor Stephanie states, “When I began writing about this period in my life, I thought this was going to be about what I considered the ultimate loss any parent could experience. I do not make light of my daughter, NoahLisha’s death, but instead, I celebrate the renewing of my relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
Pastor Stephanie shares, while writing “Victory After the Storm,” she began to realize that this was not just a tool to use as therapy; it was also her story to share with others. Through writing this book, the woman who had been hidden away for more than two decades was finally free.
Come on this journey with Pastor Stephanie as she challenges you to take a look at all life’s disappointments and use them to build upon the strength that you already possess. Listen as she shares why we shouldn’t depend on anyone else but Jesus for our happiness. And then learn why the only thing that is stopping you from having “Victory After the Storm” is you.
THE DANCIN ANGELS FOUNDATION
On March 6, 2012, Louise’s husband Edward and their two daughters Isabella and Natalia died tragically in a house fire. Edward Cantrell was a Chief Warrant Officer 2 with 3rd Special Forces Group stationed at Ft. Bragg, and had just returned from his 6th deployment; Isabella was six and Natalia was four (more details on this horrible tragedy can be found here). Louise knew how much the girls loved to dance and created the foundation to honor and perpetuate their memory as well as provide hope and inspiration to other parents who have lost children.
Listen and be inspired as Louise talks about her husband, and their two beautiful daughters and her passion for keeping their memory alive through the Dancing Angels Foundation. Then visit the website and see how it is helping those who display an immense passion for dance to fulfill their dreams.
You can also follow the Dancing Angels on Facebook, and stay up to date on their projects and latest events. Like the event that’s taking place on April 16th; the Purple Heart Plaque Dedication/Honor Ride. Save the date, and plan to attend this beautiful dedication and you will be able to hear Louise share her entire story of how she overcame her tragedy and found the strength to “Celebrate Life Through Dance.”
We can’t go back and change the past no matter how much we want to. But while you’re pondering the things that didn’t happen, have you stop to celebrate all the things that did happen? Why is it we reflect upon our failures first? Why do we want to think about the things that cause us pain more than we think about the things that bring us joy?
There will be times when things won't happen when we thought they should or the way we wanted, and we think the Lord has failed us. Yes, there are times we think the Lord, let us down. Yet, here we are, we are still standing; that means He supplied everything that we needed. So, why aren't we reflecting on those memories?
If you are going to look back, then you must also remember how the Lord has kept you. If you are going to look back, look back on the blessings, not the curses. Remember the things that are true; God wants you to prosper and be in good health. Remember the things that are honest; His promises, He will never forsake you. Remember the things that are just; His righteousness. Remember the things that are pure; how the blood of Jesus that washed away your sins. Remember the things are lovely; His goodness and mercy. Remember the things that are of a good report; His word can’t return to Him void. Remember to think about these things and never forget, it’s not over until the Lord says it’s over.
Guest: DENNIS WILSON
Dennis Wilson is an anointed speaker and singer. I had the pleasure to meet Dennis when he ministered at Triumphant Church in Orlando. His messages have an insight that comes from the Holy Spirit. His songs flow from the Father’s heart, to bring hope and healing to this generation. He has the heart of a worshiper and a real gift, to bring you into the very presence of the Father. He has been honored to have shared the platform with many, notable personalities. However, he will always tell you his greatest honor is to speak and sing to glorify Christ.
You will be blessed as Dennis shares with you how his song, “Castles In The Sand” was birthed, and your spirit will leap with joy when you hear him sing it. “Castles In the Sand," is an emotional tribute to our military warriors. The song tells the story of a father in the military helping his daughter to understand that he is not just fighting for his country, he is also fighting for her. He tells her, “Daddy is fighting in the desert so that she can build castles in the sand".
The Lord blessed us on this show, and I know when you listen to this broadcast you will be blessed, strengthened, and encouraged to press your way.
There are times when we feel life is so unfair. We look around at how bad things are in our lives and say things like, “Why is all this happening to me? Why do I have to suffer this way? Nothing good ever seems to happen to me. Does this sound familiar?
Well, first let me say this, something good happens to you every day. Each day that you wake up is a good day. It’s a blessed day, and it gives you a chance to start over and do something good.
We can’t always have the sunshine in our lives. We need the rain as well as the sunshine; because the rain helps us to grow and become stronger. Without the rain, we wouldn’t have flowers, trees, the beautiful beaches, and without the rain we wouldn’t have any food to eat.
Everything that we go through has a reason, and it’s not about us. The things the Lord allow us to go through are for His Glory. And that is what I want to talk to you about today... His Glory. It’s not about you. God wants to use what you're going through for His Glory.
Listen to FOR HIS GLORY and shout out, "There will be glory after this."
Now, be at peace knowing your story will bring God glory
The Lord is opening His people’s eyes to the plight of the world around them. For too long, many of us have turned our focus inward. We’ve been so concerned with the things that affect us directly that we have forgotten about the ones that have not yet come to know Jesus. We thought the things going on in other nations did not concern us, and as a result, the things that happened in other nations have come upon us. Now the world in which we live in has become sick. We have not been advancing the Lord’s kingdom and bringing breakthroughs into the lives of those who need to know who the Lord is. We have allowed the enemy to gain too much ground. Wake Up Church and Pray!
Church, it’s time to wake up and pray, because the Lord wants to heal the land, but He’s waiting on us; the church; we who confess to be Christians, to stand on His word. He is waiting for us to stop denying who He is and what He said. It’s time we stop being as little children tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine. It’s time to grow up, and start boldly speaking the truth, and speak it in love so people will be drawn unto Him. It’s time to WAKE UP CHURCH AND PRAY!

When Fox News broke the story of the Air Force General who mentioned GOD in a speech and is now facing expulsion from the Military, Rev Shearon Hurst decided Memorial Day was the time to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Watch the video and you will understand why I feel the way I do.
COURT-MARTIAL AIR FORCE GENERAL WHO SPOKE OF GOD'S GUIDANCE?
An Air Force general who recently spoke about how God has guided his career should be court-martialed, a civil liberties group is saying.
In a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a “redeemed believer in Christ.”
The Air Force Times reports that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olson’s remarks, is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and "aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions."
While you're celebrating this Memorial Day Weekend, don't forget to say a prayer for those who are serving, have served in the military and for their family. Remember, they are not fighting for themselves, they are fighting for all of us.
