Bringing God
into Everyday Life.

Kathleen Maxwell-Rambie

Writer. Speaker. Encourager.

Hi Friends!

I am Kathleen Maxwell-Rambie, an ordinary Texas girl, leading an extraordinary life. And it is all because of the amazing God I walk with each day.

I have discovered Jesus has provided abundant life for us, regardless of our circumstances. Much of what I share, are transparent stories about my own life, journey with Him and His word.

I share my life stories as a wife, mother, grandmother, widow, business owner, social worker, teacher, author, writer, caregiver, minister, friend and lover of Jesus. I have worked in social work and ministry for two decades.

I have had my share of unexpected events in life, however, in those places of devastation, I have found a God that loves me dearly. I speak from my heart and with authenticity of the changing seasons and disappointments of life, and how God wants to be a part of our everyday life. He just waits for us to partner with Him.

I am passionate about helping people discover their value and worth in life and have great compassion for those in need and find themselves in the ashes of life. I love motivating and encouraging people in their journey and walk with God.

On a personal note, my husband Stephen and I have five children and eight grand babies that we adore. We love to fish, hunt dove and quail, and enjoy time with our friends and family.

We will explore letting go, the benefits of grief, healing of your heart, and how to thrive in the seasons of loss. The course will also help friends and family of someone grieving better understand their loved ones. Grief and change are great teachers that can provide us much understanding about ourselves and others. The class will also cover grief and navigating through the holiday season.

Thriving Through Seasons of Grief:
Finding Beauty in the Ashes of Life

Thriving Through Seasons of Grief has been released!

Grief has been one of my best teachers. No one signs up for this process that will touch all of us, at some time in our life.

As you read this book, my heart is for you to walk away with tools in your tool belt of life. This book is for those that have had any kind of loss in their life or have friends, coworkers, or family that have had losses. You’ll learn what grief is, how it affects us, challenges of grief, benefits of grief, how to partner with the process, help those grieving, and secrets of building a new life. Hopefully, you will see the good in grief and reading this will unravel any lies you have believed about the process.

It will teach you how to overcome in times of disappointment, change and loss. It is also for those that have lost someone they love as well as for friends and family of someone grieving.

After the death of my late husband of 30 years, I knew I was not exempt from the process, and yet, if I had to go through it, I did not want to waste the pain. I quickly discovered that many people did not know much about the grief process or talk about it. I share in a transparent and down to earth way, that is easy for those who find themselves in the ashes of life or grief.

My prayer is that another layer of healing and understanding will come to your heart, and you will learn how to thrive in seasons of grief and disappointment.

Fear: It is not your friend

Driving through my neighborhood this week, I noticed decorations for Halloween at various homes. At one home, there were all these scary looking creatures. I began to think of how God wants us to be filled with faith and confidence, not fear as we walk through this world. Recently, I talked to a number of people struggling with different fears. I can certainly relate. For years, I was a victim of a variety of fears. Thankfully, God has set me free from the bondage fear brings. Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. It is the feeling of anxiety about the outcome of something or the safety and well-being of someone. One thing is for sure: Fear is tormenting. Fear is a thief and a robber of peace, joy and tranquility. I speak from experience. There are many different kinds of fear. A few I have struggled with in the past were a fear of death, fear of germs, fear of failure and fear of the dark. I have found that many people struggle with the same fears that held me captive for years. I was good at justifying my fear, telling myself that one could never be too cautious. One day I heard the words, “Fear is doubt and unbelief, and doubt and unbelief is not trusting God. That is sin.” At that moment, I knew I could no longer justify my fears. Whenever I was afraid, I began to acknowledge them as sin. God graciously began to set me free, as I was faithful to repent and resist the temptation to walk in fear. Repentance is always our friend and is found on the path to freedom. II Timothy 1:7 (NIV) reads, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” We can conclude from this passage that fear is a spirit, and it is not from God; therefore, it is not our friend. There are times when I have simply said the words, “Fear, go. You are not my friend.” As long as we coddle our fears, they will hang around. We must deal ruthlessly with them if we want to get free. Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) says, “So, do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Many times, I have pictured myself holding God’s hand, and that gives me great courage. Dismay is feelings of anxiety and consternation, usually by something unexpected. Have you ever had something unexpected happen? I have. Proverbs 3:25 (NIV) tells us, “Be not afraid of sudden fear.” Satan loves to make us feel scared, because then we are intimidated. Intimidation has one goal: to scare us from even engaging in the battle. Goliath used intimidation on David, but David did not bow to fear. He quickly strengthened himself by remembering how God helped him slay a bear and a lion. I love David’s faith in response to intimidation. He told the bellowing giant he would strike him down, cut off his head and give his carcasses to the birds. Those are faith-filled words. Prior to a personal relationship with God, I was terrified of dying. I had trouble sleeping at night for fear I might die. Once I accepted Jesus into my heart and repented of the fear, I was no longer afraid of dying. Personally, knowing God is the start of overcoming fear. Tell God you want a personal relationship with him, and anytime fear shows up, tell it to go; it is not your friend. The U.S. Navy has a slogan I think is a motto against any fears: “Life, liberty and the pursuit of all who threaten it.” God wants us to enjoy life, our freedom and get rid of any fear that would threaten us. Fear is an enemy, not a friend. Do not let fear rob you anymore. Kathleen is a Hill Country author, writer, speaker and podcaster.
