About Kelly R Baker

I help Believers go from stagnant in their walk with God to choosing to Live Yielded. The result is Thriving in Christ. 

You’re probably here because you want to grow spiritually. The thought of going deeper with God tugs at your heart. 

But maybe you’re fighting through all the distractions and shortcomings. Perhaps you’re wondering how to get the most out of spending time with Him?

Do you need:

  • motivation to walk strong with Jesus—in THIS season?
  • help to keep a Daily Time with God?
  • biblical principles to stay nourished?

Then you’re in the right place! If you’re like most of my readers, you’re not opposed to straight talk because “I need this!” 

Here, We Are All About Choosing to Live Yielded to God

This ministry is based on Psalm 1:2-3. I think it best describes how we thrive in Christ. To thrive means to grow well or vigorously.

The first habit of those who are thriving in Christ is choosing to live yielded to God.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:2-3 NKJV

In these verses, the righteous are illustrated by the simile of a tree both fruitful and flourishing. My goal is to help keep your roots planted deep into the soil of God’s Word, positioned to be nourished by Him daily, so that you won’t wither but thrive. (I love that!)

My prayer is that I can help ignite a passion to pursue what matters and stand firm for God. That you will allow God to rescue what is left unattended and ignored in your heart for far too long. 

Hi, I’m Kelly R. Baker

Justin is the man God hand-picked to put up with me (ha!), that I finally got to marry after learning to delight myself in the Lord. I serve with him in leading the worship ministry at our church and homeschool our four kids. 

After I found true relationship with God, I resolved to become a strong Christian. The Holy Spirit helped me learn that I needed to live yielded to God—every day. He showed me that if I was going to live yielded in my walk with Him, then I needed to keep a Daily Time™ with God.

He knows I have a thing for acronyms, and I made this into one. It’s my mantra now. Daily Time™ means: 

Determining Again I Live Yielded. Today I’m Maintaining Evidence.

Why does it matter? God not only desires true relationship with us, but has a place for us in His Kingdom. We spend time with Him and grow spiritually to more effectively reach the world for Christ.
