How Capturing the Supernatural Began:
I have been connected with publishing and writing since 1999. In September 2009 we started a publishing company and our responsibility has been to establish authors through international book publications. With that role, one delightful privilege I have is listening to some of the most unforgettable stories about God's divine goodness and miraculous intervention from believers around the world. In 2014 I developed an urgency to find a way to truly capture a person's story, but the big problem I faced was that not all stories belong in a book; some are better communicated through other media platforms. I needed to find a better way to get these amazing stories to the world. So I turned to God and for twenty-one days in September of 2014 I spent the morning hours in prayer and then went in to work later on in the day. But for twenty days the answer still eluded me and nothing really stood out to give me any further direction.
On the twenty-first day, as I finished my prayer time and began to go through my daily routine, I suddenly went into an open vision. Before me appeared an old video projector reel on its side moving at a super-fast speed. On the video frames were images of many known and unknown people; some who I recognized as church leaders and "generals" of our time. As the reel continued, a fascinating array of video clips, pictures, and details of the lives of each of these leaders could be viewed within the frames on the reel. There was so much information being transferred that I couldn't take it all in! The life story of each person was being shared--all at once. At this moment the Lord spoke to me and said, "Do you see these people? These are generals of your time. Their time is about to pass."
Then the reel stopped on the image of an older man and grew larger in front of me. I instantly recognized this person (who is still alive today) because of the many years that he devoted to his calling and ministry. Suddenly the picture of this person went flying off of the reel and right into my heart. At that moment God asked me, "Who will capture My supernatural?" I knew that this was a mandate for my life and that this call would go far beyond just publishing books--but capturing miraculous stories from many people's lives through all forms of media. This is how Capturing the Supernatural began!
In 2015, the first Capturing the Supernatural book project was released, Healed: Present-Day Stories of Divine Healing and How It Happens. Now, in 2017, we are into our third year of planning the ministry, and since that time we have developed the vision into a non-profit with a team in place ready to carry the creative works of God throughout the earth.
We believe that every person has a story of God's handiwork and miraculous intervention. Our mandate is to get those stories out to the world to bring faith and hope to a generation that needs it desperately.
