It is my desire to grab a hold of your heart and capture your imagination with this book, so that you can be catapulted into a place where you experience how much your Heavenly Father truly loves you, and how He longs with all His heart to have such a meaningful and intimate relationship with you! I also pray that you may really know Him in your heart and within every fiber of your being, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and the finished work of Jesus for you – in order to live an abundant life in union with the intimacy of the Godhead. This book is the outcome of my journey after I was involved in a head-on car accident in 1999, after which I wanted to journal my experiences, discoveries, and revelations going forward into healing, wholeness and restoration. It is also about the whimsical things that go on inside my head at times. For example, one day I was talking to Father God about the fact that I was so much happier with the person I have become. I reminded Him about the time that some strange person came and inhabited my body (which had a lot to do with the effects of a head injury I sustained). The person before was mean, nasty, critical, miserable, lacking a sense of humor. I didn’t like her at all. It took quite a long time for the real Jessica to come to the fore, and she is a lot easier to live with. She is happy, fun to be around, possesses a keen sense of humor, sees the beauty in things, loves people, and wants more for herself and for others. My life is an open book. This is the real reason that I am sharing my experiences, because I believe that there are many others out there that have lost touch with who they really are, and want to rediscover their true authentic selves again. Father and I will be happy if even one sentence in this book impacts your heart positively. I am often asked whether I am not being unwise by disclosing so many of my personal thoughts, feelings and reasoning in such an open, transparent manner. My typical response is that although it was a bit of a struggle to begin with, Jesus reminded me that He wants to be in us an open book to others, and for us to share our lives in a real and true way, so that we each can be healed. As children of God we have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness into Jesus’ Kingdom of Light, where His Love rules. My experience is that perfect love casts out all fear, knowing that Jesus’ love protects me. When you bring things into the light, their power to harm you is totally broken. So I am content with being honest, open and to a certain extent vulnerable with you, because I know that there is someone, somewhere that will need to hear something I am expressing, and will get a hold of the same truths that Jesus has helped me with, will come to know those truths deeply, and experience true freedom! My prayer for you is simply this “That the eyes of your heart may be enlightened. That you may know the hope to which Jesus has called you, and what are the riches of His inheritance in you, His set apart one. I pray too that you may experience once again the simple, childlike devotion to Jesus, your First Love. Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul, none is more gladdening than this, that Jesus is the Potter and you are the clay; that your Heavenly Father is always able to do exceedingly abundantly anything you may ever ask, think, or imagine according to His love that is at work inside you; and that the Holy Spirit is the shaper of your condition, environment and destiny.

As a minister of the Gospel and a writer, Jessica graduated at Rhema Bible Training Center in 1983. Together with her first husband Deon Malherbe, she pioneered a vision God gave them in 1987 called the Caring Community, working with young people to impact whole communities with the gospel of Jesus and facilitate community projects in various under privileged and under developed areas, which they ran with for 14 years. They traveled extensively throughout South Africa and abroad, joining up with youth groups to share the vision and assist them in developing their own “caring communities”. They also ran a campsite in Magaliesburg and wrote programs for youth groups, schools, and government organizations, which they ran for several years, to help young people discover their God-given gifts, talents and abilities, and equip them to go back into their communities and share their faith and abilities with others. After being involved in a head-on car accident in 1999, which impacted her life dramatically, she got remarried to Malcolm Turner, a very talented artist and minister as well. As a writer, this is Jessica's first book which is done in a daily journal/devotional format, and is illustrated with drawings and paintings done by children. It came about after she started journaling what was happening in her life after the accident and her journey with God into healing, wholeness and restoration. We hope and pray that this book will be one of many that she shares with others to inspire, encourage and awaken people to the riches, and the absolute wonder of having an intimate relationship in union with Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
