AHOY! Enjoy these tasty tidbits on your Crew Members, John and Amy
About John... I was born in Oakland, California, but spent many years in Oregon. He is the youngest of two sisters and the son of two amazing parents.
I grew up knowing about God, praying maintenance prayers, and going to church when I was desperate, but didn't really know him. Can anyone else relate? I fully gave my heart to God in my early twenties towards the end of my Military term with the Army in Germany.
Before I met Amy, I had been involved in different aspects of inner-city ministry outreaches such as the Dream Center in LA and others. When I met Amy in Oregon, it seemed that everything accelerated for both of us. We took off like rockets, being immersed in Papa God's development process. It's a far different kind of training ground than the one religion offers. Though, we took a few of those classes too! Nothing is better than having God be your ultimate mentor. No one knows you the way He does! He's the one who can truly bring you into your fullness and reveal who you truly are. Co-creating with Him is the ultimate in living. What freedom and Bliss it is when you're hooked up to the lover and source of all things!
About Amy... Born and raised in Oregon, and the oldest of two as well, I grew up on an 80-acre horse ranch in Oregon City and enjoyed riding and showing horses. I was born into a Christian home but hungered for a personal relationship with God in my teens. I learned to cultivate a relationship with Him through the simplicity of engaging God through journaling His words of wisdom. My journals brought about my first book in 2013 called "Papa's Living Room." He wanted humanity to know what He sounded like. Hence, he asked me to publish the wisdom, advice, and analogies he'd been teaching me over the years. My grammar may not be the best, but I wanted to be obedient to what He was asking. As far as ministry goes, I've been involved with worship teams, youth pastoring, prophetic teams, starting new church works, etc.
Apart from writing, my niche is also Prophetic art, in many different mediums, such as oil, acrylic, & watercolor. You can view some of my pieces on this site. Combined with all the above, I absolutely love identifying people's gifts and callings and helping them align and flourish. And most of all, helping them connect in deeper, simpler ways with Papa God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, and the heavenly realm.
My absolute favorite go to books and topics are on the subjects of Heaven, health, the supernatural, and engaging God. I am an avid researcher with a resourceful, and innovative mind. I love to create and learn about how we're all designed and wired. I love to come alongside in assisting people to experience their fullest potential! I enjoy discovering and bringing out the hidden treasure God's placed inside of people.
Fun facts ...
We're both left-handed, we like dark chocolate, and we love music! I grew up playing piano. I had lessons, but played mainly by ear. Ya! I got caught by my teacher quite often not following along, reading the music. I was busy adding and making up my own to it, lol! I can play little guitar too. I would also love to learn how to play the cello. I know I have one inside me! I can play a good "air one". I'm also drawn to the pan flute and tin whistle. Popping a beat on the drums such as the box Cajon and Jimbay is a blast too! John grew up playing the trumpet but would also love to learn the Violin. He dabbled in Guitar and we also own a Ukulele, which we need to learn. Geez we should get busy! We do have an ear for talent and would one day love to own a recording studio to promote great up-coming artist. We love new technology and social media gadgets, as well.
Some of our fav movies are Gladiator, Les Miserables with Liam Neeson, Castaway, and just about all the DC & Marvel movies.And of course we enjoy a good real life love story.
We try to eat healthy. Lots of fruits and veggies for us. We glide along the scale of Vegetarian to Fruitarian. But that doesn't mean we don't have fun splurging and treating ourselves here and there with some good Thai food, Fish Taco's, Seafood, gourmet pizza (white sauce, artichokes, spinach, etc.), and chocolate cake, occasionally.
Our fav colors are turquoise blue and indigo/purple. Along with natural earth tones of tan, brown, greens & reds. John's birthday is Oct. 31st. His birthstones are Tourmaline and Opal and his birth flower is Calendula. Amy's is March 12th. Her birthstone is Aquamarine and her birth flower is the Daffodil, although she loves Stargazer lilies & red roses.
We thrive in the sunshine and will take it any day over the cold, but we do enjoy watching the snow in a warm cabin, with a nice hot cup of tea or Matcha Latte. Yep, we're creative tea drinkers! Matcha, Chai, Kava, and Yerba Mate' to name a few.
Our middle names are Carl and Janelle.
We've traveled and lived many places, giving us a broader perspective and contrast in life. From the big city 34th flood of a condo downtown Waikiki to the other islands' more rural areas. Along with lots of states and cities on the mainland. Honestly, we prefer the quiet countryside, just outside of a town.
We're 80% preferred introverts, lol! But you wouldn't know it because we love to inspire, celebrate, and uplift people, and social media is what we do. We just have to recharge afterward on a beach or somewhere quiet. I know we're not the only ones. (Don't raise your hand, hehe!) Our greatest passion is helping people truly align to their full potential in life, in their relationship with God, expressed through their Love Specialties in the earth!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us! Much LOVE coming your way! Praying that you'll be greatly empowered and encouraged by this site!
Ending effort, Your Stewards, John and Amy
