Show Notes

Kevin Lewis has been a coach, teacher, singer, performer, business owner, podcast host and an author.  I know him personally and will add that he is a super nice guy--who encourages and affirms everyone he meets. Kevin's new book, "Can You Trust Me This Much?" comes out in June 2023. You can preorder the book here to get a signed copy:

I read the book and enjoyed his entertaining stories, perceptive observations and life lessons that speak to all of us. It's a great read. What prompted Kevin to write this book? From Kevin's website, www.HizWorks.com:

"A mustard seed. God asks us to have faith the size of an itty, bitty, tiny mustard seed. Now that shouldn’t be so hard,  should it? And yet, so many times we experience difficult, even traumatic events in our lives that make  us ask questions like, “If God loves us and wants the  very best for us, why  does He allow such horrible things to happen?”

For Kevin, it was a mass shooting in his town of Buffalo, Minnesota that brought him to ask this important question. And each time he prayed,  he heard the words, “Can you trust me this much? Those words kept replaying in his  mind over and over again. 

Kevin eventually wrote those six words down on strips of paper and Scotch-taped a mustard seed to each one. He proceeded to place the strips in random places. They were in his house, his business, on his computer, and even in his car.

What Kevin discovered was how the traumatic events we all face in life can either destroy  us or bring  us to place where we realize our pain has a purpose. And  when we finally get real and have the crazy courage to face the big hurts - those life-changing events - we can answer with certainty, “Yes…yes, I can trust you this much.”

A portion of the proceeds from Kevin's book will go to help people through The Least of These Ministries.
