Pregnant with a Promise


The best-selling author of The New Consecrated Cocoon has done it again! Having mastered the art of comparing a physical phenomenon to a spiritual occurrence, Ann-Maria now compares the compelling truths of a natural childbirth to a spiritual birth in Pregnant with a Promise.

Highly anointed, Ann-Maria is the spiritual midwife that teaches what it is to conceive your promise, advises you the best way to nurture your promise, coaches you through the birthing process, and instructs you on ways to protect your promise afterwards.

You will learn the importance of choosing the right midwife, recognizing the appointed time to push, getting the proper rest, knowing when to share and with whom, and much more. By expertly weaving the insightful stories of men and women from the Bible with her personal testimonies, Ann-Maria will help you see yourself in the Word of God, increase your faith, and boldly embrace the promise God has placed within you

No one is beyond redemption. No one is beyond God's reach. No one is beyond being used by Him in a mighty and miraculous way.

It does not matter how bad you think you have been; our Great Creator still cares for you. It does not matter how bad others think you are; God knows your heart. He knows the treasure He placed inside you.

This book explores this simple truth by examining how God used Joseph, Moses, Samson, David, Paul, and Jesus' disciples despite their faults. They all faced bad situations, but it didn't make them bad men. In fact, God used what appeared to be bad for their good and His glory.


The very things that should have disqualified these men for God's use is what made them powerful vessels in His hands.

Why do we call them bad girls?

Glory be to God, no girl is really a bad girl. No girl is beyond our Father’s redemptive power.


Therefore, no girl should be permanently labeled because of the boy she was interested in. No girl should forever be defined by the questionable choices she made. After all, upon close examination, we often discover that so-called bad girls are frequently misunderstood, mislead, confused, frustrated, scared, scarred, or deceived.

Many have identity and self-esteem issues. Many have been hurt badly. As a result, they look for love in all the wrong places and search for validation in all the wrong faces.With these things in mind, in this book, going back to the beginning of time, we will explore a few so-called bad girls of the Bible and examine how their situations could’ve been different if boys had behaved like honorable and respectable men.

You will be amazed by what the Holy Spirit reveals in the Living Word, and we pray it transforms the way you look at the women in your life.

This book is written to men, but is a MUST read for women to understand how the prominent male relationships in their lives have impacted their sense of worth and value.

TNCC Reflection Journal

The New Consecrated Cocoon - Emerging from Intimate Isolation with Power and Purpose $15.99 Paperback / $7.99 Reflection Journal / $19.99 Both


Ever wondered what's going on inside of a caterpillar's cocoon as she's changing from a unattractive, creepy-crawling creature to a beautiful butterfly that soars? 


The same thing that occurs when God draws us into our spiritual cocoon (a lonely place of intimate isolation) to prepare us for radical and life-transforming changes.


The caterpillar is literally dying to her old life so her new life can come forth. She's losing everything that will no longer be a part of her identity when she becomes a butterfly. She hangs upside down in complete surrender to the process as she loses her mouth and feet and gains more eyes. 


In our cocoon, we too lose our feet so we can't run from the process. We lose our mouth so we can't verbally abort what God is doing. And we gain more eyes to see ourselves the way God sees us. 


Like the butterfly, God must rid us of anything that would hinder our ability to soar. We show up in our cocoon broken, disappointed, rejected, full of shame, and questioning our worth. And God exchanges our pain for His purpose. He gives us His unconditional love, peace, acceptance, and worth.


To embrace the new, we must be willing to let go of the old. When we allow God to renew, restore, refresh, and refine us; we emerge as powerful beings ready to soar into our purpose and destiny in Christ.

STAY FREE From Toxic Emotions and Relationships. $8.00

Ever wonder why we attract the same types of people and find ourselves in the same types of harmful relationships?

When two people who are a “hot mess” come together, a very toxic relationship is the inevitable result. And the only way to avoid this unhealthy merry-go-round is to take the time to heal ourselves first. Until we do, every relationship will be adversely affected.


In this book, the Bentons share 10 triggers that causes us, as humans, to knowingly or unknowingly gravitate toward toxic relationships. Becoming familiar with our personal triggers help us identify, avoid, and break away from toxic relationships.
