Milk Eggs Prophecy – Debbie Kitterman
Today I would like to welcome a new friend Debbie Kitterman. She is the author of a most interesting book called Milk Eggs Prophecy. That’s right – that is the name. Debbie explains in her book how it got that name. But I don’t want to give that away. You’ll have to read her book to find out. I did receive the copy of the book free from the author. But I love it.
This book challenges the way we understand the prophetic. God has given us the gift of prophecy and He intends us to make it a staple in our daily walk with Him.
Tell me a little bit about your church background. How did you come to faith in Jesus?
I started attending church when I was 5 years old. My mother says I gave me heart to Jesus when I was 3 years old at a Christmas edition of a 5-day club. I actually remember attending the event even though I was 3, but I do not remember saying Yes to Jesus then. I probably remember the event because I was in love with Mrs. Young, she was a like a grandma to me and was the one who hosted it at her home.
I actually remember asking Jesus to be Lord of my life when I was 8 years old. – It was at a 5 day club in our backyard one summer. While I had my moments of rebelliousness when I was in high school and my early college years, I still attended church and it was my mother’s prayers, that my solid foundation I had built into me as a child attending church and my faith in God that has sustained me through the ups and downs of life.
When did your interest in writing start? Can you look back and see God working through and with you in your desire to write. If so, explain your thoughts.
I started writing when I was a young girl. I would write short stories, poetry, and journal (diary) entries. I enjoyed the process of creative writing. I have a very vivid imagination and am a dreamer, which makes for good content. When asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I would answer, “That’s easy. A wife, a mother, and a writer!
However, my first year in college, I took a creative writing class and, let’s just say it was a very unpleasant experience. I ended up dropping the class and made a vow to never write anything again, I didn’t even journal. I did eventual begin to keep a journal again, but even though I had the desire to write, and thoughts about stories, I never did.
That is, until late 2007 when the Lord told me he wanted me to write.
It was a challenging and difficult process to begin to write again. I also received much healing through the process and completely forgave my college professor and the words she spoke over me many years before. At the end of the process, I had written a training manual to teach people how to hear God’s voice, therefore deepening their relationship with Him. The training manual led to my next book project Milk, Eggs, Prophecy – a healthy new take on the radically ordinary nature of prophecy. It also rekindled my passion for writing.
What is the best thing you have written? Describe it. Tell me why you think it is the best. (so far)
What is the best thing I have written? Wow, that is a tough one – I write all the time and while I have a book, a training manual, a journal, and symbol guide, as soon as I read this question, I immediately had a picture flash in my mind of the story binder I kept as a kid. One particular story came to mind about horses… I am not sure it is the best thing I have written so far, but it is funny that it immediately came to mind.
If I had to choose between all my projects that I have written, I would probably say my training Manual, Releasing Gods Heart through Hearing His Voice, is the best thing I have written. Why do I think that? Because since it was published in 2008 there have been several hundred people in different countries that have taken the course and utilized the book learning to recognize the voice of God in their lives. This book has also been published in Spanish. It is really excited to see something that God inspired me to write, bless, equip, and minister to others around the world.
How and when do you spend time with God? Do you have a favourite devotional? What version of Bible do you use the most?
I spend time having a conversation with the Lord throughout my day, but my all-time favorite way to spend time with Him, is through Bible Journaling. I recently discovered this creative and fun way to get in the word and see Scriptures like I haven’t seen them before. I delight each time God pours out a new revelation or insight to me, plus, I get permission to play with crayons, markers, pens, and other art supplies. My favorite version of the Bible is NIV – my Bible journal is ESV. Last year, I purchased The Voice Bible and have enjoyed reading from it as well. When I preparing teachings, or am researching, I personally like to look at different translations of the Bible because it helps me see more than I would from just one version. During the warmer months, my favorite spot for devotions is sitting outside on the small deck just off my bedroom. It’s peaceful and relaxing to sit anytime, but even more so when I am in the Word.
What is your favourite scripture or scriptures and why? What is your thinking about memorizing Scripture? Do you have any tips for our readers on ways to memorize that work the best for you?
Wow – that is a tough question – I have a lot of favorite scriptures – just ask anyone who has listened to me teach, they are all my favorites. I mean the Bible is full of so many Spiritual Truths! However, one of my all-time favorite, life verses is Ephesians 3:20
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us (NIV)
Ok, I will share one more – Romans 8 is one of my all-time favorite chapters in the Bible – Living Life in the Spirit! That’s what is all about. These verses in Romans 8:15-17 are especially important to me. I am a child of God and fear has no place in my life!
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba,Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ…(NIV)
Do you have hobbies, or sports that you are interested in? What is it about these activities that you like? Looking at your personality are these activities ones that God has brought to you?
Hobbies/Sports interest: I love the hunt for a good bargain and especially enjoy going to flea markets and antique shops. I have a passion for chalk painting furniture and being creative. For my birthday last year, I got a camera and it is a new hobby I am really learning and enjoying, which makes my family really happy, because, you see, I was always the person who would cut off people’s heads in my photos or end up with blurry pictures, but not anymore.
My favorite past time is going to the movies – when I need to refuel, you will often find me sneaking away to the movies. I love to play softball, in my younger years, I would play on several different teams and also fill in as needed on a few more. I have long since hung up my cleats, however, I do miss playing competitively though. Now, my fun sport minded-interest is CrossFit. I am not the fittest person in the gym, and I am pretty sure I am one of the oldest ladies there, but I have been doing CrossFit faithfully for the last year. This is huge since I really don’t care for exercise at all, but I LOVE Crossfit. I enjoy it so much, I get up and go to the 6:30 am class with my husband (and I am not a morning person).
What is one important lesson that Jesus is teaching or has taught you that has changed your worldview, your outlook, and/or your relationships?
I think the most profound lesson God has taught me, besides the revelation of His love for me, was when He spoke on little phrase to my heart during worship several years ago. It was after I had finished writing my training manual, Releasing God’s Heart through Hearing His Voice. I was getting ready to teach from it for the very first time –and during a time of worship with the Lord, He said, “It’s all about relationship!” I of course thought I knew what He was talking about, however, I really did not. God never speaks something to us without leading us to an understanding.
God has taken me on a journey of realizing that everything we do in our Christian walk with Jesus is all about Relationship. (tweet this)
Relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and then relationship with others. We can all have an authentic, real relationship with Him first and gain understanding of who He is. Then, we can share and spread that revelation with others who we are in relationship with. Even if that relationship is only for a minute as we stand in line at the grocery store, or those we are in relationship with for a lifetime.
I pray that each person reading this interview would be awakened to the powerful gifts the Holy Spirit has deposited within them. I pray that God would not only pour out His wisdom upon us daily, but that He would breathe afresh and new and give us powerful revelations of who He is. I pray that our spiritual eyes and ears be opened to receive all that God has in store. God speak to each one of us today, and thank you for your son Jesus who modeled so well what it means to have relationship with you as our Heavenly Father.
