Months ago, one of my Facebook followers asked me the following question:
"Why do you speak so much about the Holy Spirit?"
I replied, "Because He is the Person here today; and if we don't speak about Him, people won't know He exists."
Knowing the Holy Spirit the way I do today has been the key to my virtual success. When you study the Scriptures, you discover that no one could perform supernatural wonders absent the Holy Spirit.
As you begin thinking about launching your virtual ministry, understand the vision you have won't manifest without the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Now, let's get into this teaching.
Every woman can attribute her success to one or more persons...
I attribute mine to the Holy Spirit, the family I was born into, and the few leaders I've come to call mentors.
Each person, based on their gifts and anointing, has imparted something into my life. My father taught me to forever reject the victim's mentality; my step mother taught me about the prophetic office and gifts; spiritual leaders like Dr. Myles Munroe and Dr. Creflo Dollar taught me about Kingdom principles and dominion; my birth mother introduced me to the world of publishing.
Each person had a part and share in the success I have today.
But none have been more instrumental in my growth and expansion than the Holy Spirit.
Too often, Believers think of the Holy Spirit as a force or a lesser being among the Triune Godhead. But the Holy Spirit is God, equal in power and strength; He is a spirit with a personality, and His desire is to have relationship with the sons and daughters of God to empower them to be effective agents of change in the earth.
Knowing the Holy Spirit and understanding the gifts He distributes to the Body are primary pillars of The Felecia Killings Foundation; and in this lesson, my dear friend and fellow writing coach, Angela Meer, will teach you more about the gifts of the Spirit and how they empower women like you for the work of your virtual ministry.

The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #3 - How the Power of Prophecy can Revolutionize Your Ministry
When I was 13-years-old, I came into the understanding regarding my gifts and calling.
Within FKMinistries, the gifts of prophecy and discernment are strong; and I manifest them through the gift of teaching.
Over the years, I've come to learn more about prophecy and how its power has transformed my virtual ministry.
And in this next presentation, I want to bring this deeper revelation to you.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #4 - You Don't Have Potential. You ARE Potential.
There are very few women I trust implicitly in this virtual space...
Even fewer that I'm willing to share my platform with.
But my guest speaker, Coach Tamika Sims, is high among those ranks.
I first met Coach Sims back in 2016 at the launch of my first virtual summit for Christian Authors. Since then, I've observed a woman who knows how to use her story to create a business or ministry around her authorship.
During The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit and Ministry Class, Coach Sims will deliver an empowering teaching on why you have the potential needed to equip your future audience.
I can't speak highly enough of this amazing woman, and I hope you come to value the golden treasures she has for you.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #5 - A Spiritual Look on How Believers Obtain Blessings through Intense Hardships
I thank the Holy Spirit for inspiring His scribes to record the events of the past.
Something about reading their stories and observing their triumphs give me the confidence to know that if He was there for them, He'll always be here for me.
Throughout history, we learn how the most prominent leaders emerged to notoriety, not because of their good works, but because of their hardships.
In other words, we love reading a hero's tale. We love watching her conquer fear and use her life's experience to empower others.
In truth, leaders today understand that within every setback, there's a blessing (the power to prosper) if one is willing to see things differently.
In this next presentation, I will show you exactly what I mean and how this lesson will empower your virtual ministry.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #6 - Why Your Story Will Never be More Scandalous than Yeshua's
When The Holy Ghost and You Ministry first emerged in my spirit, I didn't know how others would receive it.
Traditionally, Believers like to follow people with squeaky-clean records. They want leaders who never fell or who never endured public persecution. They want a fairy-tale leader with magical stories of wonder and perfection. Of course, these are the kind of Believers who are about as spiritually mature as my 7-year-old daughter.
So, when Ruach Elohim (the Spirit of God) placed this work in my heart, I struggled with it a bit. I knew it would require me telling my story publicly (without me feeling oppressed or depressed again). It also meant encouraging women leaders like you to take your truth and convert it into an actual ministry.
One of the lessons Ruach Elohim showed me was my story -- and essentially your story -- would never be more "scandalous" than Yeshua's.
Here was the Son of Elohim, living physically in a world that could not recognize its Creator.
Here was the Son of Elohim, succumbing to ridicule and shame for bringing the Kingdom message to the people.
Here was the Son of Elohim, dying a sinner's death when He never knew (or was intimately acquainted) with sin.
It's actually mind-blowing when you truly study Yeshua's life and ministry. Put His story in our current setting, and you will see just how scandalous it is.
In this empowering lesson, Beloved, I want to teach you why you have nothing to fear as you seek to launch your own ministry using your story. Nothing you have gone through compares to the immense degradation our Lord encountered. To this day, people can't stop speaking about his scandalous story; and yet, His name remains the name above all names.
As you engage in this lesson, understand you're in good company. Consider your story among the heroes of faith who endured far worse situations, and yet they received their crown of righteousness because they did not count their lives unto death. They gave their testimonies, functioned in their ministries with integrity, and eventually assumed a position of honor.
Let this be your witness as well.
Now, let's jump into today's teaching.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #7 - Why the Secret Place is the Best Place for Your Soul
Becoming a virtual minister and Christian Writerpreneur is often challenging.
Whenever we choose to follow the calling, we find ourselves alone, afraid, and sometimes apprehensive.
Not many people understand what we go through or why we've chosen this pathway.
But for those of us who know Ruach Elohim, we find our place and security in Him.
I am so pleased to welcome a dear sister in the Lord, who will teach you about the importance of intimacy with Christ.
Alexandria Butler will share her own personal experience of how being in His Presence enables her to confidently proclaim His message through her virtual ministry.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #8 - Why Hardships Are Nothing More Than Stepping Stones to Greatness
Every so often, the Holy Spirit brings people my way who just stick!
Whether it be a client, a student, a colleague, or fellow conservative leader, these people become pillars in my life and life-long comrades.
Years ago, I came across such individual. She was looking for a writing coach to help her put her book and ministry together.
She had a terrible experience with another book publisher; and she simply wanted a person who could give her the truth.
Well, when you ask the Holy Spirit for something, He's going to deliver; and that's exactly what she received when we connected.
Tschanna Taylor has been a long-time client and student of mine. During one of our coaching sessions, she shared a personal story with me, one she hadn't even shared with her mother.
After listening to her, I gave her this response: "Tschanna, your story is your ministry. That story will cause you to help other women stuck in the same position."
More than a year later, Tschanna has taken on my advice, packaged her story, and is now leading other women to claim victory.
This is why I am so pleased to have her join my lineup of speakers for The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit and Ministry Class. If you think your story is tough, you won't want to miss her presentation as she describes the turmoil she experienced trying to hide her secret from others.
Not many people within my virtual ministry and audience know this, but...
...for years, I had a tumultuous relationship with my birth mother.
The ups and downs led to years of silence. And I mean that literally.
It was nothing for me not to speak to her for three or four years at a time. But back in 2017, as my virtual ministry began growing, I realized harboring ill feelings towards her did me a disservice.
One day in 2019, while spending time with Ruach Elohim, He said, "Call your mother." (Again, I had not spoken to her in years.) I wrestled with that instruction for several days, because I did not want to go through another emotional cycle. Nevertheless, I eventually obeyed.
Days later, I sent her a text message that basically read, "Hi mom. How are you? This is Felecia. If you'd like, Aaliyah and I would like to have lunch with you."
Little did I know that at that very moment, in her part of California, she had just asked the Holy Spirit, "When will I get to see my grand-babies." (That's how the Holy Spirit works!)
Fast forward to July 2019, my mother and I are on another level. No relationship is perfect; but I can tell you, we have never been closer.
This is why I am so honored to introduce you to her as one of my guest speakers for The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit and Ministry Class.
My mother, Paulette Harper, is an award-winning, best-selling author; she's also the reason I entered the publishing industry back in 2011. During her powerful teaching, she will show you how you can overcome the shame and guilt of your story so you emerge publicly with grace and beauty.
Let me tell you: this journey of building a virtual ministry can be challenging. But when you surround yourself with Spirit-led women who have a heart to see you win, nothing will be impossible.
Now, let's get into today's teaching.
The Holy Ghost and You Virtual Summit Presentation #10 - How to Identify the Story You're Called to Deliver
There are many stories we have, some good and some bad.
And sometimes it can be hard to identify which story we wish to share with the world through our books.
During this next workshop, I will give you four tips on how to select the right story for your virtual ministry. I will show you how you can attract the ideal reader and follower for your work.
Over time, as you develop your virtual ministry, your work will expand because you will attract people whose lives reflect the lessons you learned via your story.
Now, let's get into this next teaching.
