The Power of Surrender


We learn from a very young age that giving up is taking the easy way out – that if we give up, we are lazy.  We learn that the world only honors those who do things the hard way. How can we grow faith in God when the world tells us to do all things ourselves? 


Frannie Rose was bedridden for 17 years with no diagnosis.  On the 17th year it was very clear to her, she had a very big decision to make.  Should she lay in bed forever and live a life of burden to family?  Should she choose suicide and end the misery? Or should she surrender to a God that she felt had abandoned her?”


It was a long and hard decision.  Choosing to surrender to God, her bed became sacred ground. Surrender brought a peace and emptiness that was new for her.  Before this, life had been so filled that she could barely feel the wonder of being.  Once she surrendered, she was shown a deeper world – a world with infinite potential. As Frannie says, “The power of this surrender, changed my life.”


Are you in a life situation that you feel you cannot solve?  Do you worry that giving up is giving in?  Join One Simple Voice for a powerful day of surrender and reflection. Bring God into your life through surrender as Frannie did, by changing your life into a life in Him.

Do you ever wish you could hear God?

As you've faced hard challenges in your life, have you imagined conversing with God?

Would you like to ask God questions  and hear His gentleness and kindness speaking directly to you?

Do you wish to know the meaning and purpose of your life?

Learn to hear God's voice.

Perhaps you've gone to church all your life peached the scriptures, and read of others who have had or sought the wisdom of a spiritual mentor, yet still  your heart longs for more.

Arising from her extraordinary journey with God, Frannie Rose inspires  students across the world to live in conversation and in union with God.  His voice is what she heard  as she emerged, miraculously, from seventeen years bedridden with illness and as she embarked on a new, awe-inspiring journey with Him.

In "Teach Them to Hear Me," A Guide to Conversing with God, Frannie Rose guides readers, step by step, through a contemplative journaling technique God shared with her for engaging in daily and increasingly deeper conversations with Him.

When  readers  say "yes" to this beautiful journey, they will experience what Frannie's many students have discovered: how to find inner peace  with God; how to uncover meaning, purpose, and fulfillment through His answers; and how to gift the world with their newfound peace.
