About Amanda Wilson

Education: Bachelor of Science with Honours Ph.D. in Medical Biology Bachelor of Theology Advanced Diploma of Christian Ministry

Comment to those looking at my sermons: If the content does not connect with where you are in your journey with God then don�t use it. People will be able to tell if you don�t believe what you are saying, no matter what words you say.

One of my favorite illustrations: At the moment would have to be the Lord of the Rings because it has such a biblical idea of power: the power to control (Sauron�s ring) destroys and the power to serve (the elven rings) creates and sustains

Family: Husband of 25 years, Steve, and two teenage daughters

What my parents think of my sermons: Father does not come to church. Mother heard one before dying and said it was good.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I believe he thinks they are good. Certainly my oldest daughter does.

Best advice given to me about preaching: DONT tell people at the start where you are going Make it into a story and take people on the journey with you so they can see how you made the discoveries you did and the conclusions you came to.

Books that have had an impact: All of Ravi Zaccharias� books All of Leanne Payne�s books All of Henri M Nouwen�s books M. Scott Peck�s In Heaven as on Earth; People of the Lie Watchmann Nee�s books Silence, Silence by Shusaku Endo Phillip Yancey�s books Hadden Robinson�s books on preaching

Hobbies: Music, reading, internet

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus is everything you will ever need - try it out

What I want on my tombstone: She loved God and others passionately
