The Heart of the Matter: What is Truth?
The Westminster Catechism tells us “The chief end of man is to glorify
God and enjoy Him forever”. This has been Marilyn’s life-long passion!
Her own faith journey, filled with both disappointment and pain,
adventure and joy, has informed her experiences as a mother and
As a counselor she has listened to many stories of fear and helplessness, even hopelessness and despair; as a Bible teacher, she has thrilled to see the truths of scripture come alive in hearts that surrendered those feelings to God! Marilyn was given the “Golden Rule Award” for her contribution to the lives of others at home and abroad, awarded by the IPI, representative of the UN.
This book is an accumulation of God-thoughts, compiled from her morning devotions. For those who already have a relationship with Jesus Christ, Creator, Messiah, Savior, these meditations will enhance their walk with God. For those who are suffering from pain and sorrow, stress and anxiety, it is Marilyn’s hope that God will speak comfort and lift the spirits of those who need to know a solution can be found in Him.
John Stott reminds us of how important it is to expound the Biblical text with accuracy and to relate scripture to contemporary life, since the Holy Bible is the source of all we know about our heavenly Father. Its riches will never be exhausted, but Marilyn invites you to explore them with her in daily meditation.
Feed My Sheep: Life Skills Training
It has been a great privilege for me to teach docs and nurses, pastors and lay-leaders and women about the value of relationships within the body of Christ. Our mandate is to love – our families, the Christian community, our neighbours and our enemies! With nowhere to turn for help, people should be able to recognize the church as the institution of healing that Jesus intended it to be when He commanded His disciples to love one another.…the job description?
Feed My Sheep.
Help them to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word!
I started putting together principles of counseling, which broaden into Life Skills Training, summarizing 15 years of teaching Biblical counseling. Initially I intended it for the African Church which has few Bibles, so there is a lot of Biblical content.
A friend who was proof-reading the book wanted to use it to teach his College and Careers class and suggested it could be used as a tool for evangelism and discipleship.
From the beginning God viewed his people as sheep needing a shepherd. (Numbers 27:16-17) David identified the Lord as his shepherd in his most famous Psalm 23. Jesus, according to his own description was the good shepherd (John 10:14) and equipped his followers (Hebrews 13:20) “with everything good for doing his will.”
I am so excited that UGCSI has asked me to develop a pilot project called “Women’s Crisis & Trauma Counseling Online Certificate Program”,
using this book as their text. Your prayers would be very much appreciated! I believe this is a book that should be in every church library because Jesus came to bridge the gap between God and man and asks that the church do the same by feeding and nurturing his sheep.

I have known Marilyn Daniels for over a decade. She has been a considered colleague and a faithful friend. She has devoted most of that time to a charitable organization committed to the theological advancement and education of those living in Africa, South America and Caribbean.
As a registered nurse, Marilyn continues to be actively involved in many medical mission trips to assist with improving basic medical necessities and educating health care workers, mothers and women. She also uses the opportunity to bear witness of the Gospel to everyone she meets during these trips.
Marilyn recently retired from her administrative role in the office which she tackled with pride and commitment. She now pursues a writing endeavour with the same dedication and passion she brought towards her counseling clients. She extends grace, love and compassion to everyone God put in her path. Even through the most trying of times, Marilyn has never failed to put her faith in God first.
Her love of God is apparent in how she carries out her daily life. She is God’s witness to her family, friends and strangers alike. And now, she is ready to share the lessons she has learned and the faithful way God has provided throughout her life. I know you will enjoy her first book and look forward to many more in the future.

"I have known Marilyn Daniels for almost 50 years. We went to the same church, worked together in the youth program and her children and mine grew up together as cousins. We worked together as board members for Mission for Advancing Theological Education. So I have seen Marilyn in many contexts for many years.
"Anyone involved in Christian counselling would love this book as it is easy to follow. The resources and scenarios in the book provide a wealth of knowledge and skills for counselors. Marilyn is not merely sharing her nursing experience in life but the love and compassion in Jesus Christ. Fronica Yiu, BScN, MTS."
