Cheri Strange, an award-winning author, and mother to eight has been ministering to and encouraging women for more than fifteen years.

She understands the tension of trying to fulfill the simultaneous calling to minister effectively as well as mother exceptionally. Cheri knows the weighty responsibility to love each one unconditionally no matter their background, skin color, or insatiable neediness. Believing that God never calls us to half-hearted pursuit or sets us up for failure, Cheri strives to use Scripture to lead, stir and encourage others to seek His Kingdom rather than our own, always and only for His glory.

Press Release for Life Principles for Living Out the Greatest Commandment
Life Principles for Living Out the Greatest Commandment
What does it mean to live out loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength?
It might not mean what we think…
Life Principles for Living out the Greatest Commandment is written for the one who wants to know how to love God completely. Too often this high calling sounds exceedingly difficult for the average believer. Settling for mediocrity in Christ and half-hearted devotion, instead, is the standard. In this eight-week study women discover obedience to the Greatest Commandment is not an impossible feat, but a natural response to a God who loves the unlovable, the unfaithful, the mistake-laden, and the average halfhearted pursuer. Participants learn to discern differences between simply loving God with some affections and loving Him wholly by investigating Biblical characters that succeeded, as well as those who failed miserably, allowing circumstances, fears, and shortcomings to hinder them in undaunted pursuit. Readers gain insight into avoiding traps and snares set by the Enemy in their own lives by studying the lives of others and through practical present-day applications. Because the call is to love God, not only wholeheartedly, but also with all the mind, soul, and strength, each way of wholly loving God is investigated.

About the Author
Cheri Strange is living proof of God’s ability to transform a plain and ordinary wallflower into something completely unexpected. She did not set out to become a writer and speaker. Nor did she dream of getting a Ph.D. or becoming the mother of eight children. No. She simply fell in love with a God who met her at the kitchen table while her babies slept. And when she began to hear His call to move beyond that kitchen table, and communicate the truths of this magnificent Savior plainly for others to fall in love with, she responded. Cheri Strange, Ph.D., author, speaker, and Bible teacher leads the reader through the Word to experience more fully the God who loves us first.
