If you want Intimacy With Jesus, pray a prayer like this, in your own words, or use mine. Almighty God. Heavenly Father. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus. He paid for my life with His Blood. He defeated the devil for me and saved me from the clutches of hell. Thank You for giving me the "free will" to choose Jesus as my Lord. I bow my knee before Your Son and I say: "Come, Lord Jesus, be my Lord. Live Your life through me. Use me for Your glory. I surrender everything to You. Let me know You intimately. Amen."
Marty Delmon comes from a long
line of believers. Imprisoned in England for their beliefs, her family came to
the New World as Quakers. The other branch came as Methodists. Her
great-grandfather, an itinerant minister, wrote in his journal, “The women of
my family will publish the Good News of Jesus Christ.” Marty is the first to
fulfill that prophetic word. Born in Kansas City, Missouri she claims Minnesota
as her state since that’s where she spent her high school years. That’s also
where she developed her love for sports: tobogganing, ice skating, skiing, and
swimming. She swam briefly in the Aqua Follies, deterred only by a belligerent toe,
which cramped the minute it hit the river.
Attending school at Lindenwood College for Women in St. Charles, Missouri,
Marty majored in Physical Education and thereafter taught school in San
Francisco, California. She married John Pierre Delmon and they produced first a
boy, Jeffrey John and then a girl, Jolie Pier.
When the children were ages 7 and 4, Marty’s husband confessed his
homosexuality. This admission began a long trial of psychologists, counselors,
ministers and others who tried to help John overcome his ‘condition.’ In that
epoch everyone believed homosexuals were born that way and there was no help;
however, John and Marty plowed on.
During this time of great depression on her part, Jesus surprised Marty by
showing up in her life and she became born again. She and her husband attended
Rhema Bible Training Center and taking the children, now 18 and 21, they moved
to France as missionaries, lasting only three years.
The best thing she did for her husband was to divorce him, which made him take
responsibility for his ‘condition.’ He moved into a Christian facility that
helps men overcome their sexual deviations. Hence, Marty’s wrote her first
book, Sleeping With Demons,
detailing their path and his subsequent deliverance.
Five weeks after the divorce, Marty returned to France as a single missionary.
She settled in La Garde Freinet and established a radio ministry where her
stories are heard on 107 Francophone stations. She also pioneered a church and
taught in a Bible school. Joining International Pentecostal Holiness Church,
she returned to the States for three years to raise funds. Back in France, she
moved to Baillargues outside of Montpellier and focused all her energies on
writing. She discontinued public ministry except in the States where she went
yearly to raise money.
Out of this intense period of writing, Marty produced 14 books, several stage
plays and hundreds of stories for the radio. Her second book, and to date the
most successful is entitled Buried
Lies, a novel. In her
early days of Christianity, in order to lift her out of internal chaos, the
Lord gave her a prayer process that plucks the lie out of the soul and plants
God’s truth instead. As she became freer, the Lord asked her to write about the
When people read Buried Lies
they asked Marty to lead workshops. Then they asked her to write a workbook so
they could do the process at home. Thus, Uprooting
came into being. Marty also recorded it as an audio book.
Her next novel came out of a certain romance from her youth and is called Wild Card. Now she awaits the
launching of her current novel Wild Fire, a book about The Last Great
Revival. She also has written very effective books describing and explaining
the powerful themes in the Bible. She calls them the “Destined” series: Destined for Healing, Destined for Success,
Destined for Love, Destined for Faith, Destined for Grace, Destined for Joy,
Destined to be in Christ, Destined to be in the Spirit, Destined to be Battle
Destined to Live in the Kingdom (coming soon).
Marty has recently moved to Neauphle Le Chateau outside of Paris to be closer
to her radio studio and the publication of her books. Her son Jeff, his wife
Vicky and their two children Alex and Natasha live in Washington, D.C. Her
daughter Jolie and her three girls Brittany, Victoria and Madison live in

The kind of giving that pleases God are the gifts given in joy. Ask Him what He wants you to give and then give it with hilarity (that’s a Biblical term). His promise of abundance is attached to your obedient, joyful giving. The amount of joy the Lord wants us to live in is full of glory!
7) So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful (hilarious) giver. 8) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:7, 8)
