It has been probably 20 years since I last read anything by Anne and not long ago I discovered a bookmarker that was kept from 1980?A few weeks ago I thought of Anne and looking her up on fb, finding her ill, I felt grateful that God lead me to spend specials times rereading some of her words.Anne, I loved you as a new Christian back in 1978, reading, listening to cassettes of your marathon training........I will be praying for you and your precious family. See you on the other side dear lady.Diane

" As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." PSALMS 17:15
I have been inspired by Ann from the time I read "Taste of Tears," after I had a miscarriage, inspired further as I read "And with the Gift came Laughter," as I was inspired to adopt three sons. I was encouraged and moved as I read, "Seduced by Success" as I was married to an alcoholic in the past. Ann, your honesty has always been inspiring. I have been inspired to bake chocolate chip cookies, to love children, and to DREAM BIG. Your books have been a screen play for my life. Most of all, I took the admonition of Jesus, "Unless you become like a little child......" Ann, God bless you. Your books have truly changed my life.
I loved Ann many years ago, in the 1970s Jesus Movement days. The best thing she said was I might be little, but I have a great big God living inside of me. In recent years, reconnecting online, I have seen her talk about her beloved family and some of the struggles she has been through, but all testifying to her theme that though she is just a little person, we have a wonderful great big God through JESUS Christ !!! I pray for Ann as she is in this final phase before what I call "graduation" for us Christians. I can only hope when my time comes, somebody is praying for me. Much Love to you (and your precious family) Ann Kiemel Anderson !!
Ann you taught me to be kind, insightful, diligent, ready and to love well. Just give what you have. Intentional. Bless you.
Well done good and faithful servant. You DID change your world! And many of us can say thank you for living for the Lord. Many lives changed and brought to the Lord because of you. We will see you there in just awhile.
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 8in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing" (2 Timothy 4:7)No more sorrow. No more pain. No more suffering. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty! What a joyful homegoing.
How wonderful to find this site. I just saw the news of her homegoing on Charisma's update. Seeing the blog posts from Ann's books took me back to the 70's where, through Ann and people like her who were out to change the world, God's call came on my life and today I am a missionary in Botswana, Africa where I have served for the past 26 years! I started out inspired by her writings that filled me with faith and vision. Thank you Ann for sharing your life with us. See you soon!
