Jodi King

From Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter Jodi King of Love & The Outcome, comes You Got This, a devotional collection of inspiring lyrics, quotes and affirmations that capture the singer’s wisdom, humor and luminous personality and connects the dots to a fulsome life lived with purpose and faith. You Got This is a page by page reminder that confidence isn’t having it all together, it’s letting God hold you together. As Jodi shares how to stay in love, be a wife, have kids and a career, and let go of trying to be perfect amidst it all, you will be encouraged to do the same. The key? Going from ‘I got this’ to ‘God, I know that You got this ... Because I don’t!’.

After touring for years with Love & The Outcome and enjoying life on the road with her husband Chris and their two kids Milo and Ziggy, Jodi’s Nashville home flooded in 2021, causing the family to live out of suitcases for almost 2 years. During this time, Jodi sharpened her faith building tools through walking the road of suffering. She learned to not shy away from it hoping it would disappear, but walk through it with God. In 2023, this spurred the author to expand the book with 5 new chapters filled with lessons received in real time.

Jodi King continues to make music and tour with Love & The Outcome and has amassed hundreds of millions of streams across her music and video catalogue with Billboard Top 10 hits “You Got This, “He Is With Us, and “King Of My Heart”. Her journey in music has been recognized through the Dove Awards, K-LOVE Fan Awards, The Juno Awards, and a collection of GMA Canada Covenant Awards. She has shared stages with peers including For King & Country, TobyMac, Switchfoot, Lecrae, and Danny Gokey. Jodi’s “Love & The Outcome Podcast” launched in 2018 and now has over 10,000 subscribers. It has featured guests including Sadie Robertson, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, Bob Goff, and more.

Gayle Heffley

Rev. Gayle Heffley is Daren’s wife, Tom, Nicole, and D.J.’s mother, and Hailey, Haden, and Daren’s grandmother. She is a preacher, shepherd, and evangelist. In May 2000, she answered God’s call to full-time ministry and is currently the lead pastor of Arcata Church of the Nazarene. 

Pastor Gayle is passionate about creating safe spaces and an atmosphere of trust that fosters authenticity and vulnerability, whether discussing hard things or celebrating great victories. In addition to pastoring a local church, she mentors women leaning into God’s call to ministry, leads a Wesleyan-Holiness Women Clergy cohort, co-leads seminars on trauma and spirituality, and organizes ministry to people on the margins.  

Pastor Gayle’s life verse is Romans 8:28, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Emancipated at age 15 and a survivor of domestic violence, she testifies from experience that God can bring beauty from ashes and wants people to know that they are not alone; there is more to life than the world offers. God graciously heals and restores purpose as people surrender their past, present, and future to their Creator, find community in a family of faith, and progressively grow in loving God, loving people, and living in hope.
