Married to a Prophet: A Glimpse at the Prophetic Life in Action
At just twelve years of age, Kathy met Kris, age fifteen, and for her it was love at first sight. Before her lay the adventure of doing life with a man who would become an influential prophetic leader; raising children while being part of one of the largest Spirit-filled networks on the globe; and her own position of leadership, sparking a movement with her husband that has impacted much of the world.
In this unfiltered, messy and transparent narrative, Kathy Vallotton, a Bethel Church matriarch, traces her life with Kris as she recounts their early married life, his heart-wrenching nervous breakdown, stressful financial setbacks, the jarring experience of living with a prophet, learning to develop a healthy Kingdom culture at home--and how she grew to trust God in the midst of it. You will love her vulnerability, and will grow along with her as you read her hilarious and touching account.
Kathy Vallotton is co-founder, senior overseer and administrator of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and WorshipU in Redding, California, as well as a member of the senior leadership team of Bethel Church. Her practical wisdom and prophetic insight combine to give her a unique and profound ministry. In her free time, Kathy likes to ride horses, fish and hunt. She and her husband, Kris, have four grown children and many grandchildren.
"It is the stories of those who have radically followed Jesus that stir my heart and ignite a deeper faith for what God has called me to. It is in the mountains and the valleys, the challenges and the victories and the tears and the celebrations that I see the faithfulness and goodness of God on display. God brought Kris and Kathy Vallotton into my life when I was a young man. Their lives and the stories they told helped shape me into who I am, and they are still with me today. I know that The Good, the God and the Ugly will do the same for you. This book will challenge and inspire you to live a radical life of faith and draw you into a deeper relationship with God."
