November 2019

Each year during the month of November, we as a nation set aside a day of Thanksgiving. Often, we gather for family meals (feasts!) and regale one another with wonderful memories of times gone by. Often, we laugh until we feel our stomachs begin to ache (or it could be the sheer amount of the turkey and pumpkin pie we consumed!). Often, we sit around the room expressing things we are grateful for, especially the people we are grateful for.

This leads me to ponder each year the things I am most grateful for.

Here are the five things I'm most grateful for:


Even though my health issues seem to color each and every aspect of my life in some way, I am grateful for the fact that the love of my family is steadfast. My wife is my bedrock. My children, including in-laws, are my encouragement. My grandchildren remind me I am the richest man on earth. My family gives me a reason to keep fighting and to keep fixing my eyes on Jesus. They are my heart's dearest treasures.


Fellowship of Believers

I am blessed to have pastored a small group of believers each week for many years now. Meeting in our living room each Wednesday night,All In All Churchgives me something to look forward to each week: worshiping God with other believers and ministering to wounded souls. I am grateful for this community of faith that gives me far more encouragement than I could possibly give them.


Jesus had a small inner circle of friends. Even though my circle is a bit smaller than that of Jesus, it is still life to me. Knowing I have a handful of men I can unburden my soul to keeps me focused on truth. But the reality is, I have literally thousands of friends around the world who constantly encourage me with their kind words via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, my website, Patreon, and this newsletter!

Truth is, not everyone can be inner circle, but your kind encouragement via messages and emails is just as meaningful and affecting. I treasure each kind word I receive, and I am grateful.


What can I say? Apart from Jesus, I believe my life would fall apart and would have done so a long time ago. He keeps meeting me right where I am and keeps loving me enough to not leave me there, even pulling me out of my occasional miry pit of self-pity. I am His. He is mine. Relationship with Him is everything, and I am forever grateful for this fact. With Him, even Parkinson's bows its knee to Jesus and becomes a useful tool in the kingdom of God. I am so grateful that my God wastes nothing and that He is with me and gives me grace to endure.

Freedom to Create

Due to my health issues, I have had to become more intentional in my creativity. Each day, I try to schedule some sort of creative endeavor, exercise, or discipline to keep my mind sharp and focused on Jesus and upon the needs of others. With each creative endeavor, I feel an infusion of life where death tries to raise its ugly head. The result of having the freedom to create is gratitude. And the resulting benefit? Yet another reason to keep fighting for life.


What are you grateful for? Make a list, and then show Him that list. Count your blessings, name them one by one.


P.S. I'll be releasing my new devotional book next week. You can preorder theebooknow or get the paperback on November 25th. I'll let you know when it's officially out in the world!

altIf you are concerned about finding safe, quality, fantasy books for your children or grandchildren, consider this series by Dennis Jernigan called the Chronicles of Bren! The Chronicles of Bren is a three-book fantasy series for young people, ages 10 to 110. In the vain of The Chronicles of Narnia, Dennis has crafted a story designed to lead young people to seek for and discover their ultimate destiny and identity. Full of fantastic creatures and a suspense-filled adventure, The Chronicles of Bren follows the life and legacy of a young man named Lee Jennings. Lee lives in fear of local bullies and chooses to fight back one day - and finds himself in hot water and running for his life! What happens next is the saga of Lee Jennings falling into another world and into a new identity! How he gets there is part of the fun.

As an added bonus, the reader can go to where he or she will find many features not included in the book - like songs for the journey for books one and two; like simple drawings by Dennis Jernigan of what some of the characters look like to him; like a free book called The Bairn of Bren which features the grandchildren of Dennis Jernigan as the main characters!

Books For Children:
Daddy'€™s Song


This story was written for my children as a means of explaining the redeeming love of Jesus to them. It grew out of and was created out of my own story of redemption. Being asked to share my story in such a public way since the time my children were small, I needed a way to tell them about my own story of redemption in a way that would not be too much of a burden for them to bear. Daddy'€™s Song became the perfect bridge to lead my own children to Jesus and, when they were old enough to understand, the perfect explanation to the reality and the depths of my own deliverance from sin. It is a family heritage and treasure. May it prove the same for you and yours. - Dennis Jernigan

Available in hard or soft cover:
INCLUDED inside the cover is a CD audio version of the book

Daddy'€™s Song

Books For Children:
The Christmas Dream

altThe Christmas Dream is the story of a little boy who loves Christmas. He loves the festivities. He loves the decorations. He loves the wonder of Christmas. He loves everything about it. One night, he falls asleep and is transported into a realm where he meets God, and God teaches him about the true meaning of Christmas. Told as an adventure, Dennis Jernigan designed The Christmas Dream as a means of teaching his own son about the meaning of Christmas. This story can serve as a valuable tool in leading your child or grandchild to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. It also serves to remind the adult reader to not stray too far from the wonder of Christmas . . . and to have a childlike faith.

How To Have Dennis Come and Minister

People often ask me how a certain church or ministry was able to have me in to minister. The answer is quite simple. They asked. The way we have always operated is to wait on the Lord for opportunities to present themselves. When I am invited somewhere my team and I look at three criteria. One, do we feel called of the Lord to accept the invitation? Two, is there provision for the event (travel expenses, lodging, love offering/honorarium, etc). Three, is the date open or compatible with my schedule?

We Do Have Dates Available

That being said, we have a few dates open, contact us to find out when. You have not because you ask not;so ask. Call Annē Kay at 918-685-2268 or contact her via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

On My Heart
As the 35th anniversary of my freedom approaches, I am pondering all God has done and yet bewildered by what I see happening to our culture

As I watch the culture decaying before my eyes, I ask the Lord for wisdom and clarity in the chaos. What I am coming away with is two distinct and parallel callings upon my life - two declarations:

1) The enemy has done a number on our culture concerning our very human identity. If we look at and operate from the Creator's design for us, we easily and logically see that when one is born a male, he is a man and should pursue the masculine identity. It follows that when one is born a female, she is a woman and should pursue the feminine identity. Wrong feelings simply declare that a lie is being believed somewhere in the thought process. Our enemy is THE Liar and his only power is deception. Oversimplification? I don’t believe so! Jesus has been setting people free from stinkin' thinkin' regarding sexuality for thousands of years now! Just read this:

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB

2) The church has fallen into the deception and, in so doing, has watered down the Gospel. Oversimplification? I do not believe so! When is the last time you heard a sermon calling people to repentance from their sin? When is the last sermon you heard declaring the power of the blood? When is the last sermon you heard calling people to the cross of Christ? We have become so concerned about how people feel that we have often completely abandoned the Truth! This generation is headed for traffic. Who will step between them and the oncoming destruction?

My prayer is that my life would communicate the Truth without compromise yet communicate the hard facts of Truth with great compassion and love for those I see headed for sure destruction.
Dennis Jernigan

PS Here is song born out of all these thoughts:

Prayer Request

I have three things I would ask that you cover in pray.  First, this past week I had interviews with Oklahoma's 2 largest newspapers.  I had a great interview with The Daily Oklahoman and it should be in the Sunday or weekend edition. She had done her homework and knew me from an interview I did last year after the Governor asked me to minister at the Memorial Service for the victims of the May 2013 tornadoes in OK. She told me her editors were requiring her to speak with detractors as well. I told her I expected as much and that I was fine with that.  The interviewer from The Tulsa World asked me why I would share my story when it was so politically incorrect. I told him I shared because I remember hoping someone would tell me change was possible when I was a young man...and no one ever did...and that I shared for those who struggle with unwanted same sex attraction to know they can seek God for their identity. Please pray for the interviewers who will now turn around and write the story...that God would be glorified above all and that people's hearts would be turned toward Jesus.  THANK YOU for praying! I could not do this without you. We are the body...

Secondly, please pray for all those who are skeptical who will see the film and/or read the book that the truth of Jesus would set them free to experience the abundance of life found in knowing Jesus. People often tell me I am not really changed - just suppressing who I really am. That's the furthest thing from the truth. I am utterly, irrevocably who my Father says I am...and I am changed.

Lastly, join me in prayer over the entire Sing Over Me movie and book teams…that fear would be replaced with perfect love.  Pray for protection and grace to minister for the 7 Oklahoma churches that will be hosting the simulcast of the documentary. And pray for those who curse the film and book. Ask the Lord to open their eyes and their minds to THE Truth of Jesus and His ability to heal. Ask Him to give you love for them and to help you see them as He does.
