The book originated from a midweek Bible study. My husband and I have the honor of working with new converts to Christianity. I kept seeing a trend of them being uncertain of their role in the kingdom of heaven. They could not see within themselves what was so easy for me to see: future Bible teachers, music, Sunday school teachers, evangelist, and other home missionaries, like my husband and myself. It was my desire to see them move forward and develop their own natural gifts. The book was to inspire them to believe in themselves and to get out of their comfort, safe place (of what they were already familiar with), get out of the boat, and walk to Jesus.
