Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; that my soul may sing praise to thee and not be silent.
Psalm 30: 11-12

He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

Welcome to the website of Lettie Kirkpatrick Whisman

Welcome to my website! I enjoy my home in beautiful East Tennessee where I write, speak, hike :-), and love my family.

My last intro update for this website took place in 2014. I wrote of family tragedies in 2012 and of my ongoing role as caregiver for my husband Phil following a massive stroke. My writing was limited to a Lifeway women’s devotional and a mission magazine called Missions Mosaic.

Life took another turn in 2017 when my caregiving years ended as God set Phil free from the tyranny of his stroke and gave him healing in heaven.

To my amazement, God began bringing a season of restoring and redeeming in my own life. I married a wonderful Christian widower and once again was given opportunities to speak.

But the greatest surprise came as God called me once again to write! This month my new book, God’s Extravagant Grace for Extraordinary Grief: Devotions from the Refiner’s Fire, will be available for purchase. So – if you know someone walking a dark journey of loss and fighting for faith, please share a copy.

“This I know – our lives can be forever changed in a split second of time . . . the time it takes a stroke to destroy brain cells, a car to crash, a heart to stop.”

“In Spring of 2012, life was good, my writing and speaking prospered. Books were waiting to be written, opportunities to teach (mostly writers and women) were on my calendar. But by Summer of 2012, life appeared to be shattered beyond repair. I couldn’t imagine ever having words again.”
