theWORD4u Relaunches!

bg_headerThe vision is still alive! Exactly 6 years ago I launched theWORD4u with a desire to see people blessed by the Word of God spoken to them by name. The journey of discovering how to bring this vision about has proved challenging and ultimately I shelved the project. I was focused so keenly on everything being perfect, that I didn’t give myself the opportunity to grow.

For the last 6 years, not a day went by that I wasn’t thinking about theWORD4u.  There have been a million and one excuses and rationalizations of why this project was impossible and how I needed to develop some sort of technology, program, or app to make this work. Not to mention the huge doubts about: “Who are you to mouth the Word of God to someone?”, “Is your life reflective of every scripture you’ll read to people?” The answer to those two questions is: “I am a child of God, trying to do what I know is the will of God” and  “No, my life isn’t perfect, and whose is? Only the accuser is happy when I put off sharing God’s Word until I attain perfection.”

To buy into the lie that perfection is necessary to serve God is a real bondage. Thankfully, I am over that mess and will be allowing the joy of the Lord to be my strength. I am fully convinced that your growth and appreciation of the Word of God will bring Him joy. I know I’ll be encouraged to keep producing readings daily as I hear how this tool is helping you in your spiritual walk with God.

I’ll finish this post by sharing some lyrics from one of my favorite songs. It’s Bethel Music’s “You Make Me Brave” where the chorus sings:

“You call me out beyond the shore into the waves”

“No fear can hinder now the love that made a way”

“No fear can hinder now the promises you made”

I’m brave in the knowledge that even though there will be challenges ahead, trolls to ignore, and impatient customers to do my best to satisfy. His call and love will carry me. No fear will sidetrack me from sharing the Word of God with all who want to listen to God’s Word encouraging them by name. Here we go!

Problems with checkout cart

To Elizabeth, Samuel, Phillip, Matt, and Heather thanks for letting me know about the checkout issues. Thanks for your patience. I think and update of WordPress or the checkout cart has temporarily broken the ability to complete an order. I started to poke around to see if I could get it fixed but then I thought better for fear that I’d mess things up worse. So I will wait till my IT guy comes in on Monday and have him fix things. Sorry again for the delay. I’ll send emails to those who are waiting to complete an order when things are corrected.

theWORD4u: How did it start?

Retro Style Microphone With ShineAs I read the Bible in my devotions, I always found it easy to look at the more challenging passages as if they were for someone else. That was until I started personalizing the Word of God for myself. By including my name in the scriptures and reading passages as if God were speaking to me personally; it became much easier to get convicted and take action on the what I’d read.

I was so touched with how powerful the Word was to me when I personalized it that I soon recorded it for myself to listen to over and over.  With the constant drumbeat of negative proclamations coming from the news media and Madison Ave, listening to a personalized Word was an excellent way to meditate on the truth of God to me in every situation.  The recordings allowed me to meditate consciously or unconsciously, when played softly in the background, on the life changing power of the Word of God.  Truths, that were only head knowledge once, started springing to life in my spirit!

In spite of how much it blessed me, it never occurred to me to provide personalized readings for others, even though I am a voice over professional.  It wasn’t until a Sunday church service this past January that the Lord gave me a vision of this ministry. Literally, the Lord was telling me to use your voice talent to blessed others by “calling the names of His children” into His word.  The scripture that resounded at the time of this vision was “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Rom 10:17.

It is my prayer that you will be blessed and your faith will come alive as you listen to these recordings.


Welcome to theWORD4u

Welcome to This site is home to a ministry whose goal it is to help believers meditate on the truth and poignancy of the Word of God to them. Reading the Word of God is essential and necessary for every Believer for spiritual growth.  theWORD4u’s mission is to energize your study and meditation of the truths of the Bible by allowing you to listen to personalized selections of scriptures. It is easy to envision the Bible as being for the masses and not directed to you specifically, but in listening to the readings from theWORD4u you will be challenged as your specific name is called in the scriptures.  We believe the experience of hearing your name will inspire you to action and build your faith like never before.

God knows your name. He would like you to know that the words in the Bible are for all the world that receives it, but you are not lost in the masses. God knows your name and is speaking to you directly through out the Bible.  I believe God wants you to be blessed as you listen and meditate on His words for you in a new way. It is my prayer that all who request these readings will come to a deeper appreciation of the Words of the Lord being directed not just at the world at large, but at them personally. Be blessed as you listen.
