Janis Maasen tells the story of Peter, both as we see him in the Gospels and as the man transformed by the Holy Spirit after Pentecost. His gifts, his flaws, his dedication, and his service are inspiration to us all because Peter was as ordinary as you and me. And just as Peter was able to overcome his failings and become the foundation of God's church, our stumblings are not a death sentence to our gifts and callings. The message of this book will help you to become the person God intends you to be as you focus on Him, leaving your past behind. People in any situation can relate to Peter as they think to themselves, "If God can use Peter for His purposes and glory, surely He can use me!"
Janis Maasen and her husband of ten years are associate pastors at Grizzly Creek Christian Fellowship in Yuba County, California. A teacher and preacher for many years, she received her ordination from the Full Gospel Fellowship of Churches and Ministers International of Oregon and has a degree in business administration from Shasta College.
