MVW: What inspired you to write IDENTIFIED?

Courtnaye: I know this might sound super spiritual, but really, it was the Holy Spirit. I honestly was going to write on something else. I mean, I had the title for another book. I’d already written the introduction and back cover text. Yet, all of a sudden, when I opened up my Bible one day, I looked down and there was Isaiah 55:8, staring me right in the face. It read, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.” At that moment, I knew it was what I call a “God-shift.” I knew the Holy Spirit was leading me in another direction to write on something else.
