Embracing His Transforming Fire
Ignite Your Heart with His Fire of Revival
Most of the world around us is dying without hope. Friends, co-workers and family members are struggling to find their way through the darkness of sin and suffering. But Jesus has not abandoned the souls He came to save; He wants you to make a difference! He is calling you to carry His life-giving love into places of brokenness and sorrow. Genuine revival happens when passion for God breaks through human restraint and ignites one heart after another with the flame of His love.
With enthusiasm that will set ablaze your passion to reach the hurting, Kim Meeder encourages you to let the holy fire of God's presence fill your heart, soul, mind and strength. As your fear and pride melt away, those around you who are losing their battle for hope will be transformed by encountering His redeeming love in you. This--this is revival rising.

"Bold, riveting, adventurous. Kim's passion for time spent in God's restorative 'wilderness place' is matched only by her burning desire to share His redemptive love with the world. For such a time as this, Revival Rising reaches deep into the soul, destroying strongholds and reigniting the transformative fire within."
Eric Close, actor, director
"Kim's fierceness and love are front and center as she shares what she has received from the God of the universe. Revival Rising shows how horrific tragedy and incredible blessing can be beautifully woven together. The stories and challenges in this book have strengthened my trust in God."
John M. Troyer, executive director, Helping Network
"Kim Meeder is well-known for her ministry both in writing and speaking. God has used her in our chapels, bringing hundreds to his throne and altar as well as a single lost hurting soul at a campfire at the Asbury University Equine Center. Kim has been able to see human need and God's ample answer for that need."
Harold Rainwater, equine director, Asbury University
"Revival Rising is alive with God's power and mystery. With stories of ocean rescues to the quieter encounters of kindness at a mountain gas station, Kim Meeder reminds us we are strategically placed in the world for a reason--to love the Lord and reach the lost with His compassion. But we can't fulfill our mission with halfhearted faith--what Kim calls spiritual flat tires. Kim's masterful stories challenge us to inspect our own hearts. We can all benefit from rededicating our hearts to the Lord at a time like this. To restore our joy, we must return with our whole hearts to the Father. Revival begins with prayer inviting the Holy Spirit to reignite our faith."
Lindy Jacobs, summer conference director, Oregon Christian Writers
"When women listen to Kim speak or immerse themselves in her writings, they discover a deep love for Jesus and an invitation for renewal that delights the heart and soul. Kim fills your heart with reality, truth and encouragement. Her inspiration gets near to a woman's heart to help her remember God is faithful to her, as Kim so well knows, no matter what the circumstance."
