I know…I talk about Girls with Gusto a lot. I guess you could say it’s my writing passion. But it’s also my greatest desire for you—that you would learn to live with godly gusto!

In the section below, I answer some questions friends and readers have asked about the book. If you’d like to submit a question, simply leave a comment below. If you’d like to support this work, please answer the poll below. Thank you!


What is Girls with Gusto?

Girls with Gusto is a manuscript I’m writing about the spiritual journey. In it, I outline the eight major steps of the spiritual journey to help you determine where you are right now and what you need to do to progress.

This isn’t about salvation, though. This is about drawing closer to the Lord. As we do that, we become the people God created us to be. Pretty cool, huh?


So what’s with the title?

Gusto means spirit, verve, energy, zest. These words should describe the way we live–both in our daily lives and in our spiritual lives. That’s because there shouldn’t be a division between the two. Instead, we should seek God wholeheartedly on every day and in everything that we do.


Watch the video below for a little more info:


The following video is a bit longer (at about 30 minutes) and is taken from a radio interview I did earlier in 2017 to promote a college class I was teaching. The host, Doug Apple, asked some great questions about the spiritual journey.


Where can I get more info?

Although the book isn’t out yet, I’m sharing what I know on my blog. Enter your email address on the Blog page to get the posts delivered to your inbox.

I’m also sharing what I know in church events and in the classes I teach. Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in booking me for your next bible study or conference.
