    The world teaches us that externals will make us happy: if you are thin enough, have enough money, drive a fancy car, and have a big house. Well, that is a lie.

    Ann Kiemel Anderson has written multiple best-selling books, always been thin, graduated from college with honors, trained and ran many marathons from Israel to Cape Cod and qualified for three Boston Marathons - the most elite marathon in the world. She states, “Ive traveled, made a lot of money, and NONE of this made me enough. I was insatiable.”

    At 35, Ann married Will Anderson: handsome, and in some ways, bigger than life. But marriage was hard, and she kept having miscarriages. Her world was beginning to crumble.

    God miraculously gave them four beautiful baby boys and four lovely birth moms, who each chose them to be the parents. They were in the delivery room for each birth. These four young women became fast friends. Four babies who became brothers… God knows how to do it best.

    “In the midst of all this beauty, I developed massive infections in my abdomen from the miscarriages. I became addicted to pain pills for my physical pain and to numb the inadequacy inside. I became enslaved. I had a secret.

    Ten years ago, longing for deliverance, I walked into a secular, detox center, and spent 25 days in hell. No one can know how sweet freedom is unless one has been enslaved. I began to get the picture. I had been addicted to performance and praise long before pain pills. I longed for people to love me. I was so needy.”

    God did for her what she could not do for herself. And when He healed her, her core became whole: quiet, clean and redeemed.

    Her husband Will was diagnosed with cancer, and died in November 27, 2000. She became a single mother, shell-shocked, without life insurance. All she had was Jesus and the children and herself. One in every two houses is single-parented. She knows the fears: not enough money and standing alone. She says, “Ive been working with single moms. Most dont know how to help us. Were longing for help... kindness.

    “I was never enough before standing ovations and best-selling books, and I was never enough with them. I began to see through the lie. Nothing is enough without Jesus. And authenticity.”

    She has stayed home for most of ten years while her children were growing up. She has a high schooler who will be a senior next year. “Ive worked hard to provide, with Gods help, stability for my children. They are my sun and moon and drink and celebration. I am very busy, in my neighborhood, loving people to Jesus. I speak to all kinds of groups, except today, it is all for the only Star...Jesus. Not for me.

    Greetings to Ann | Posted February 27, 2014
    In l976 an agnostic college professor who had not been to church in 13 years read a page in a book by Ann and the Holy Spirit changed his life forever. Dear Ann, so full of God's love. You were at NNC when I gave my testimony . Dear Ann,what can I say--God used you as his instrument to lead me to Christ. I think and pray for you daily. You have a permanent place in my heart.

    Hi Ann | Posted May 22, 2013
    Hi Ann - this is Judy Basye - I have wondered for a very long time how you are. I am so sorry about will. Sounds like you are doing a great job being a mom. I accidentally found this website with your name. I don't know if you knew that Stan died a couple of years ago. We miss him. Love to you and your family. Judy basye

    Bless YOU Ann Kiemel-Anderson | Posted March 25, 2011
    I first heard of you during the Jesus Festivals in Orlando Florida. I read and listened to everything I could about you. Then I lost track of you when the Festivals ended. I am so blessed to have found you again. I had not heard about your husband...I am so sorry. Two of my daughters that went with us to the festivals, are now married.(The third one is still single and working through the issues withthat at age 40) One has 3 children, and the other is working through her invertility issues. Right now they have chosen to be foster parents. They are a blessing to the children put into their care. I am looking forward to hearing about more books you have either already written, or are writing. Penny

    Joseph Kiemel??? | Posted January 12, 2011
    I have several old Bibles that belonged to Joseph Kiemel, who I think was your grandfather or great uncle. I'd love to send them to you. Please contact me at roethe100@msn.com. I remember hearing you speak at the Oregon City Nazarene Church before you were married and you have had a wonderful influence on my Christian walk and that of my niece. Thanks so much, Linda R

    I'll never forget! | Posted March 04, 2010
    I'll never forget, Ann, how the Lord used you in my life. Though unaware of everything you were going through, I believed you would have sunshine one day! You are one of less than a handful who the Lord has used in my life; He showed me sooo much though you, though you may have never known what He was doing. For years I've looked for anything--how to contact you, etc. and was saddened to learn a few years ago that Will had gone home to be with the Lord. I know the Lord will continue to use you to bring Glory and Honor to His Name. In Christ's love ALWAYS! Tam [Tammy] [Idaho Falls]
