He lived well: The impact Jim Maher’s life made on me

Elizabeth and Jim Maher

Yesterday I attended the funeral of our dear friend Jim Maher, worship leader at IHOP, author, speaker, and the man who used to be the worship leader at our former church and led the worship at our oldest daughter Heather’s wedding 8 years ago. The funeral was amazing. All of us laughed, cried, and celebrated the life of this great man of God. 

Jim’s death in a motorycle accident was very sudden and such a shock to everyone. His daughter Rebekah was following him in a car behind him, and witnessed the accident, being with him in his last moments. Please pray for his wife Elizabeth, Rebekah, their son Reuben, and all the family. We never know when it’s our time; that’s why it’s so important that we make the most out of every moment, living for God.

In today’s vlog, I talk about the funeral and the impact Jim had on my life personally – and the questions (and conclusions) his life and sudden death made me think about that I wanted to share with you.

You can buy his book As Storm Clouds Gather at Amazon here and The Coming Kingdom here.

    Hi Beth –
    I’m wondering if you have an address for Jim Maher’s wife or family. I have recently purchased ‘The Coming Kingdom’ book (God directed me to it at GoodWill!) and it confirmed so many things God had been revealing to me over the past couple years. What a treasure trove of truths! I would like to get more copies of this book to give to other Believers. I want the family to know how impactful his and his wife’s work has been. I am sad to hear about the loss of Jim’s life.

    Thank you.
    A fellow Believer,

      Sheila, I’m so sorry, I haven’t been working much at my website lately. This has been quite an “off” year! I do not have an address for Jim’s wife or family. His books are amazing. I was very sad, too. He was a great man of God, a man of humility, love, and passion for Jesus Christ and Israel. The Lord bless you, Sheila! Please forgive my late reply.
