Who is it for? "I wrote OK, GOD, Now What? for two kinds of people:"

  1. Those in troubles now, they need a breakthrough.
  2. Those who want the best of God's table of love for them now, and want to leave nothing out of God's goodness for them and theirs.

How did you come to write OK, GOD, Now What? "That is a longer story."

Why won’t God make me rich? Get this: God wants you to be rich, prosperous, healthy and happy beyond measure right now, has already done everything possible on His end for you to have it, and is in intense pain over any shortage you experience. But if you do not do the right things to release them, you will walk in very little of it. 

3 John 2 "Agape/Beloved (fellow Christians), I wish (pray, interceed to God for you knowing that it is His perfect and complete will that) above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

Eph 2:8 "For by grace are ye sozo/saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained (established, required) that we should walk in them."

Where Is Your Sweat?  You are doing something all day, every day, and that is part of the work of life. We are sozo saved to go to work for, through, by and in God! If you don't walk in them, the good works God has created you for in Jesus, you will never have them! Whatever your theology on grace versus works, you had better handle these verses that tell us to WORK with grace after we have received the grace of soteria/salvation. Otherwise the devil will continue to rob, kill and destroy your life at his leisure.

Heb 4:11 "Let us labour (work) therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief."

1 Cor 15:10 "But by the grace of God I (Paul) am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured (worked) more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me."

Titus 2:7 "In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you."

Titus 2:13 "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee."

2 Peter 3:14 "Wherefore, agape/beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent (hard and continuous labor when it is not fun) that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless."

Work the Word to Work the Grace: And the first place we start and the last place we end is with and in the Scriptures, especially as they reveal Jesus and the work of the New Creation. So one way to say it is to learn how to work with the grace of God so that God can inhabit what you do so He can fill the earth with His glory by His grace through you. And that is part of what we explain in "OK, GOD, Now What?"

This is not just Bible study, for that is cognitive mind learning, very important, but not the answer your heart craves. It is subconscious mind or heart writing that is called the "engrafted word" which is able to deliver to you the full soteria/salvation of God you can have now. When you got born-again, certain eternal things that depend only are God were put in place, and He will do His part. The issue for godly success in this life is our part now. That is what we sepcialize on in "OK, GOD, Now What?"

Forced Into Mining For Gold: I discovered the secrets to God's health, wealth, prosperity and a long life in the middle of a crisis. I barely made it, but finally, by the grace of God, did triumph. I wrote “OK, GOD, Now What?” so you could triumph even better than I did, and build a life better than you could ever dream of.

Living In Toxic Waste: When Adam sinned he plunged the world into the devil's toxic waste. It is called the current world system. We are like fish living in a polluted stream, eating polluted food and making polluted decisions, and totally unaware as we call it "normal." We live in a world where nature, advertising and daily life (and political slogans) shouts that there is no help in God. If you don’t fight back, it will overwhelm and ultimately kill you. You may win a few battles but lose the war. And that terrible journey is designed to make you miserable.

Just How Bad Is It? 2/3 of all bankruptcies are for medical reasons. 20% of Americans have clinical mental illness today, and 50 % will have clinical mental illness in their lifetime. Some 95% of all Americans need medical attention each year, and 82% will visit a doctor at least 4 times in one year.

Toxic Thinking Is Our New Normal: The most common medical diagnosis is hypertension, anxiety or stress, or the results of hypertension, anxiety or stress, which is controlled by how you think. Constant evil fear damages the immune system; and some doctors believe a variety of diseases ranging from the common cold to cancer to life avoidance and drug addiction are caused by evil fear, which is a way of toxic thinking.

Leaky Neurons: Toxic thoughts lead to leaky brain cells, called neurons, that operate like leaky pipes, and stress your body every time you think those ungodly, fear-based thoughts. What happens in a leaky neuron is that as you think its toxic thought, the cell contents leak into the blood stream.

This is just like stomach acid. If that acid leaks out it causes indigestion, painful ulcers and even death. In the same way the cell material in leaky neurons poison or stress the rest of the body. It is even worse if you let yourself get into the evil emotions attached to those ungodly thoughts.

Bottom Line: Fear and envy kills, worry does make you sick, and a corrupt mouth, the fruit of a corrupt subconscious mind or heart, does shorten your life. And that is hard science proven in laboratories and hospitals across the world. Life and death are in your heart-driven thought habits.

Broke By Medicine: For 2012 in America, the average family of four costs $20,000 a year in health care; and 40% of that is out of pocket. That is $8.000 a year, every year, and it is growing. Medical science says there is no reason why anyone could not live a healthy 120 years, or even ever have to die. After all, a healthy body replaces all of its cells at least once about every 7-10 years. So something is very wrong with the way we are living our lives today. And the key is the presence or absence of Bible-based, godly thinking habits.

Hope Unveiled: Each family could easily save $1,800 or more, per year, with a godly thinking program that:

a)      Heals and restores what is lost or damaged, including health,

b)      Regular life maintenance to keep your mind and mouth clean, and

c)      A life building program to make heaven on your part of the earth.

Work It Baby! There are three situations we have to manage in a godly manner for success in life:

1)      Urgent events;

2)      Ongoing maintenance;

3)      Life building for a godly future.

How It Works: All the blessings of God are yours, but without the right work, you will die without them.

The Answer: This right work is described in “OK, GOD, Now What?” 95% of our life is run by habits, most of which we are unaware of. Habits operate in the heart or subconscious mind, and by their very nature, we are unaware of them. Change your toxic habits to godly habits for life success. This is how you not only avoid being a bankruptcy statistic, but how you can walk in God's health, wealth, prosperity and long life, and how you can make heaven on your part of the earth. Just like Adam was supposed to do and Jesus did.

The Cost Of Wrong Freedom: We have been told to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, so what is your batting average? Before you answer, consider how you act when someone cuts you off on the highway, or gets the last sale item in a store, or someone says an unkind remark about you or treats you or yours unfairly.

You Are Your Past. 95% of life is lived out of our subconscious mind. You are living right now from what has been programmed into your heart or subconscious mind prior to today. To change your future you have to do the work today in the heart until it bears fruit.

The Candle Is Burning: Every day you delay in doing a program like found in “OK, GOD, Now What?” you are building and exercising leaky neurons with toxic thoughts by letting evil fear run your life, limiting your creativity, courage, confidence and love, and building poverty, murmuring, complaining, fault finding, depression, gossip, cheap band-aid thinking, Alzheimer’s and no supernatural power of God, as the habit of your life.

Science Give Spiritual Truth: The secrets for making the promises of God active in your life are found in the Bible, and now explained by the modern science of neurology and the subconscious mind. If I had found such a program I would not have written “OK, GOD, Now What?” and frankly I would still be a fear-bound Christian trapped in nearly-ritual prayer, Bible study, worship and token good deeds, with few acts of supernatural power or evangelism.

Where do you stack up? Is your trust in your health plan, Medicare or God? Or is it in your good looks, brain power, job, pension, savings, or your account in heaven?

Faith Is A Heart Habit: Since we live 95% out of our subconscious mind or heart, controlling what thoughts dominate in your heart is the key to managing your life. Or another way to say that is what you have faith in is a thought habit. As a human everything we do is by faith, assurance in the unseen.

That faith may be based on your abilities, someone else's abilities, or some law like science or fate. But to be human means you operate by faith all the time. You even go to bed a night with faith that you will wake up. And that becomes a life process, a lifestyle run automatically by the subconscious mind, and that means it is a habit.

Habit Management: To change what you have faith in you have to change your subconscious mind thought habits. Thought processes are habits, and to change them you use behavior modification or habit change and modification processes. 

It is possible to reprogram your heart to be just like Jesus'. That is the promise of Ephesians 4:13-15.

You will produce what you programmed in your subconscious mind, but it will be months of effort and months later before you see results. With the teaching and Christ Affirmations found in "OK, GOD, Now What?", you can build overcoming faith in your heart.

You can “cram” for a time to get answered prayer, and we show you how, but a life of victory in Christ is a faith-habit life and takes time to develop and maintain. How to do this is the “hidden-in-plain-sight” Bible secret we have found and describe in “OK, GOD, Now What?”

Will You Let The World Keep What Is Your Heritage? The techniques to reprogram the heart for superior performance are used by top athletic coaches, airline pilots, medical doctors, and other top performers. But the commands of what to do have been in the Bible all along, but little obeyed. We show the brain biology, the methods and then the Bible commands so you can understand HOW to build FAITH so you can release God more than you ever dreamed. It is your heritage, if you will but go after it.

Unlock Your Life: With the keys I put in this book, "OK, GOD, Now What?", you can launch into a program that will transform your life to beyond your best dreams and eliminate your brain of leaky neurons and toxic thoughts, and best of all, bring heaven to your part of the earth. The result is you will no longer be driven by circumstances, but can make intelligent decisions at every event that releases God and all His riches into your life. By this we mean, not new year's resolutions, but solid decisions that stand the test of time and pressure. Just like Jesus did.

Temptations to sickness, fear, worry, anxiety and depression will not disappear until the Last Day, but you can have the internal strength and thinking habits that will send them running. This is the kind of life you were meant to live to the glory of God. This is part of what Jesus died to get for us to have today.

My Gift For You: Now you know why I am so passionate about this book and the potential for you and your family. God’s best can be had if you will work at it rightly. I did the hard ground work, years of Bible and scientific study and practice. With the keys I put in this book, you can launch into a program what will transform your life to beyond your best dreams and eliminate your brain of leaky neurons and toxic thoughts. And the promises are backed the living God of the Universe through His Son, Jesus Christ, in the power of Holy Spirit.

WARNING: Unless you are actively healing your toxic thoughts, you are maintaining them. Right living is like paddling upstream on a raging river in a canoe, if you are not digging in to go up, you are being forced down, whether you are aware of it or not!

WARNING: Every minute you delay is pumping toxins into your blood stream because the attitude of delay against God is a toxic thought habit pattern! This is the Great Warning of Galatians 6.

Gal 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth [in thoughts, words and actions], that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap zoe/life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”


Donald, what did you experience as you wrote OK, GOD, Now What? "That is another long story."

Hippie Convert: I am a converted hippie, a semi-Jesus freak. Semi because I was converted to Jesus as an Air Force Officer in the 70's, so I had already cut my hair and beard, but not my heart. I told God He could do me like Abraham and send me where He wanted. In time I had a reputation as a scientific and business trouble shooter, a turnaround guy, a wonder worker. I created success out of failure and impossibilities. I was promoted above my contemporaries. I was the guy who always did the right things the right way, and made lots of money for my company and our stockholders.

Let's take a trip:  Imagine for a moment that you are successful in everything you do. Life is pretty good. Your marriage is great, your kids are great, your job is great, there are no traffic delays, and you finally have a little spending money. Life is good, then you get blasted by some news that shakes your world. Life goes from great to the pits. Hope spirals into “why me?” Well that happened to me one afternoon when I was called to my boss’ office.

See Ya! I went in happy, and came out numb. And even before I made it down the hallway, another VP came up to me and said, “Tough luck, better men than you have tried, and they all failed. You won’t be around here much longer, good bye, it was nice knowing you.” Such was the day when I got what I learned to call the “Assignment from Hell.” And my response was, “OK, GOD, Now What?”

Everyone is in the same boat: For many this is the same as a lay off or the death of a loved one. This was a job with no hope, with people who had already made it known they did not like me or want me. My world was going to change big time and I saw nothing good coming my way. In today’s economy and uncertainty, many of us are in dread it will happen with a job layoff or a family disaster. We all experience adversity in many forms, perhaps you also said, “OK, GOD, Now What?” like I did.

So how did you do it? The book I wrote has the same title as my question that day: OK, GOD, Now What? And it started when I had to explain how I turned around that failing business and, in 6 years, with the same people, we produced $500 million. This was a big problem and a whole town depended on the answer, not to mention my own survival in the company.

The problems was it was high technology and the only people on the planet who even knew about it were the same ones failing. And even worse, their minds were in the gridlock of fear, denial and accusation. And I had to get it fixed through, and with them. Which means I had to get them out of debilitating fear and into creativity and owning the problem to solve it. The situation drove me to my knees. I spent roughly an hour a day in prayer and Bible study. That changed me and how I operated. That is what made the difference.

This book is for you: What I did to shape myself in the middle of bad news and adversity, was put in the program which I describe in my book, OK, GOD, Now What, so that anybody can overcome any problem or difficulty the same way. And even better, position yourself for the best life has to offer. My quiet “oh my!” eventually went to a loud, “Yahoo!”

Is that the way it works? And in the process, I learned the power of slogans and affirmations to help anyone overcome and even thrive in difficult times and when it looks like all hope is gone. Today, in the political arena we are bombarded with slogans to get us to agree and vote for somebody. And if it is not the political season, every day we are bombard with advertising message and CNN = Continuously Negative News.

What I did for myself on the inside, they are trying to do from the outside. And it happens all the time in our modern world. And I want you to know how you can take control of your own life and start to get what goodness and blessing God has for you, starting right now.

Spiritual Labors: Prior to that assignment I had already been doing some level of Christian spiritual disciplines. For years I had spent most of my typical 90-120 minute daily drive to and from work listening to good teaching, singing Scripture songs and praying in tongues. So that was usually 1.5 hours a day as a minimum. During the day I was usually meditating on Scripture or humming a Scripture song. Lunch was often in Bible study. I had been a worship leader for years, so my spare time, or late at night, was with my guitar singing mostly scripture songs.

Got hell? Come on! I had already determined that the routine and ordinary did not excite me. Little did I know that what I loved, and what resonated with me, was what I later discovered as the job description God gave Adam, and Jesus demonstrated.

Here is my core confession, “I love and thrive on chaos, confusion and hostility, and today is a great day!” Or another, “I turn hell into heaven, what some?” Now you can see that I was already at odds with most of Christianity. God built that attitude in me; no man can take credit for that. And when I go back to my roots; that is where I go. And yes, I recite, sing and pray Psalm 23 and Psalm 91 almost every day.

Stomach in, chest out: My attitude at that hell-assignment was not as dramatic, but it was more like, “OK, God, I expect you to make this work through me.” Or, “Another high hill, oh well, let’s go. I’ll get my boots.” So I was not afraid, but since it had so much travel, I knew I needed to pray more often. After all, I would not be home to raise my family very much. And when I did come home, I needed to be God's agent of love and truth first and best.

Town on the Edge: I did not tell my wife about the risks. I just hunkered down and got at it - job, disciplines and family. The challenge was that if I did not succeed and turn around these people, the plant would be closed and they would lose their jobs, the town would be destroyed, and I could maybe even lose my job.

But management’s position was that this was a last chance, and they had already formulated plans to shut the plant down. I was just a lower-cost, last-chance alternative. I lived in the constant awareness that these people and this town depended on how well I did my job. It was up to me or nobody. And no one at that plant liked me. I was the big guy from corporate, who was best left there.

No Guide: There was no Internet back then, but it did not matter, there were no books on how to turnaround impossible business conditions in the Christian books stores anyway, or how to use Christianity to turn hell into heaven in the business book section of bookstores. Most turn arounds bring in new people and start again. This was a technical problem and the only people on the plant who knew anything about it was the same scientists and engineers who were failing. I needed wisdom greater than all the business recovery books I was aware of.

They were already in fear, denial and accusation. Their minds were in gridlock on how to solve the issues. I needed spiritual truth and lots of it. With a Catholic upbringing, my idea of spirituality was more like a monk in a monastery. What I became is more like a warrior monk lose in the world, with 20% contemplation in private time, and 80% doing with continued contemplation while I ran.

Want Some? Today I tell people, “What I do is pray 2 hours a day in tongues and seek the Lord in the Bible. I end up doing the right things and deliver success in the impossible and improbable. Want some?”

Write the Book: The process God led me through to succeed against impossible odds, I put in a book. It is called, “OK, GOD Now What?” This book is for you. Everyone has challenges and difficult situations. Everyone feels alone, especially when things are not going well. Everyone wonders where to go for answers, and who can you trust? I am just like you. What I did was decide to do it by God's path seen in the Bible. That is the highest and best I know of. I wrote down the process I found there, and then used.

Those who do the process I describe in the book, produce extraordinary natural results, and normal supernatural results. God is no respecter of persons; He shows no partiality. Do the right things and you will get the right results. And that includes you and me. What I did, anyone can do. Because everything God has is for anyone and everyone. This is "who-so-ever-will" good news.

Who has the Facts? As a scientist, I look for facts. So I looked for Bible facts first. I am sorry to say, my opinion of church teaching is that much of it is not based on Bible facts, so I had to discover my own. But mainly I sought the Lord expecting Him to teach me. Instead He got me doing things, and what I did I was totally unaware of, or it  not obvious to me that it was Him. It was more the result of my seemingly natural thought processes and inclinations. I was becoming the answer to my own prayer, and perhaps of a few at that failing company. I am living proof that God can work in us to will and to do of His good pleasure.

God Working in Me: More recently I discovered that what God had built in me is being confirmed by top athletic coaches and neuroscientists today, and is rocking the world of business, advertising and education, not to mention athletics. That is because science at its best is a search for truth, and the Bible is truth. So I put some science also in the book, just enough so you can understand so the devil cannot steal it from you any longer.

Woo-woo or Results? If you are the super spiritual, woo-woo type, and more about “feeling,” this dive into hard work commanded by God may not at first make you happy. But you may become a believer as you start to see lots of results. Remember I was trained to produce results. Effort only counts if you produce results.

What I found is what God makes available to anybody who will do the work. That is how God is no respecter of persons. If you want to be special, and woo-woo, then enjoy. But if you need answers that are beyond 2 seconds of feel good, or better than a hangover and regrets in the morning, then this is the book for you.

Timeless Job Description: And that hell assignment? In 6 years, with the same people, we grew that business from loss to $500 million. Few in the world have ever done that with the same failing people. Most bring in a new team and start again. Now I see that I was like the last-chance coach to turn around a failing team, and we did it. You know, the job description Adam failed at, and Jesus did in me.

Want some? Want to do what top coaches and parents do to make Jesus-people? Want to captain your ship of life like Jesus did, the apostles did and we have lost knowledge of? Then get the book, see www.OkGodNowWhat.com.

Castles of Sand: Want mediocrity, failure, regrets and a house built on sand? Then do not get and do this book for at least 90 days per the program. It is your call. Have it “your way,” and not “the way it really is with God,” and “I like my relationship with God as it is.”

But if that relationship does not make you look just like Jesus, then you are in deception. And the devil is getting you to gladly let him rob, kill and destroy you, and your family and destiny. And you will find yourself in the unhappy position of defending what God will one day destroy, and you will learn to hate like Jesus does.

All you need is ___? But for me, I have determined I will not live my life to show up ashamed on Judgment Day. And since what I am doing is in the Bible, then what you are doing, if it is not what I am doing, is not in the Bible, and you will show up on that Day more ashamed than I will be.

It is your life and your call. I did my part for you. I put the truth in a form anyone, with little education or Bible knowledge, can use. You don’t need a degree; you just need a right attitude and diligence. It is always, "who-so-ever-will."

Yes, I do beg. I am telling you and begging you. Don’t miss out on the wonder God has for you while you seek a lower standard to “feel good,” or follow empty dreams and lies. Instead you can learn to feel GREAT in Jesus, let Jesus be GREAT in you, and let Him do what He longs to do through, in and by you. And that is your real destiny. Get the book, “OK, GOD, Now What?”, and see Jesus manifest in you like you have always dreamed of, or continue to let the devil manifest by “safe sins.”

My Passion: Since I discovered the key to what it means to renew the mind, I want to share this information with everyone. I want them to know how it works, how easy it can be, and then apply it to the truth and promises of God. I want each one to enter their full destiny in God. To be all they can be where ever they are. I wrote OK, GOD, Now What? so anyone can take these truths in affirmation format and renew their mind in the fastest way possible. The results will not only be a new strength and confidence in their lives, but also more answered prayer, more miracles and more awesome love in every part of life. And Jesus will be glorified like most have only dreamed of.

One For All: Everyone fits either or both of these two conditions on who I wrote the book for (see above). The best part is that God guarantees the results. I just show you the process and the techniques that have been hidden in plain sight for centuries so you can unlock your best destiny. You don't have to believe me; you can believe all the testimonies we have so far. But even better you can use the book as a study guide and learn what God has to say. What God has to say is the only testimony that really matters.

12 Week Challenge: This is not another “you got to do this, and you got to stop that” book or super secret teaching.  Instead here is the "HOW you do this," and "here is the HOW you stop that" tools and techniques anyone can learn and do in a book format. You can do it by yourself or with a study group. You can learn how to be free of the tyranny of evil circumstances, feelings and emotions, and instead learn HOW to experience any godly feeling you want, any time you want. Get the book and take the 90 day challenge to let God show you more than you can think or imagine. 12 weeks to a jumpstart a life like you always dreamed of; a life of the dreams God has for you.

Up to you: This book works because it is mostly Scripture. Since it is truth, science has finally gotten smart enough to explain how it works. But it only works if you work it. We no longer have the excuse, "OK, GOD, Now What?" All we have to do is get busy doing what God has always says we are to do. By the grace of God, I made is easier to do.
