Coastal Bliss

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Sitting on the patio of a local restaurant, overlooking the sea, I was sipping coffee and enjoying a relaxing breakfast with Craig.

Conversations surrounding us focused on things that seemed QUITE PETTY, in the scheme of things. I noticed the marine layer was quite heavy with thick, billowing fog. The sun was DESPERATELY trying to peek through the stubborn, leftover clouds. A gentle, continual, comfortable breeze FILLED the quiet, serene, peaceful air. How refreshing. Gentle waves lapped onto the cascading shoreline. Just the direct opposite of what took place the night before.

On the East coast of our nation we heard the warnings. We knew it was coming. Hurricane Sandy.


The entire world watched. No one escaped its path. And it’s not over. Everything it touched got pretty torn up. Physical loss, relational loss, financial loss. The aftermath will be costly.

Forgive us God for our INDIFFERENCE towards others as they go through storms. And we sometimes just sit…and continue to sip our coffee, enjoy and relax.

Forgive us God for
our neglectful conversations. Consumed with things that seem QUITE PETTY. In the scheme of eternity.

Forgive us God for
our detached attitudes. If it’s not on my side of the coast, it’s not my problem.

Give us Your eyes, oh Lord to see the pain of others.
Give us Your ears, oh Lord to hear their cries.
Give us Your hands, oh Lord to reach out and help the hurting and broken.

Cascading waves of mercy and grace lapped onto your shoreline when you first trusted Jesus as Savior. His Holy Spirit lifted the heavy layers of thick, billowing doubt from your life. And He FILLED you with a gentle, continual breeze of His comfort. Quiet, peaceful, and serene. How refreshing.

How HORRIFIC to keep that good news to yourself. (John 10:28)
Because we are hearing the warnings. (1 Peter 4:7)
How DEVASTATING to not share the true hope of Jesus with broken, hurting people. (John 14:6)
Because we know Jesus is coming again. (Revelation1:12-18)
How HISTORIC and POWERFUL if you opened your mouth and did.
Because His word never fails. (Hebrews 1:3)
The entire world would be watching a massive move of the Holy Spirit. (Joel 2:28,29)

It’s called REVIVAL.

We need it.
You get to start it.

Do not be ashamed of the gospel. (Mark 8:38)

PRAY FOR: The people on the East Coast that have suffered Hurricane Sandy. Our friends, Pastors Brad and Stella Reed of the have been on the streets in Manhattan helping the hurting. They are in desperate need of donations. Every penny helps. The biggest need right now is for candles.

PRAY FOR: Revival here on this West Coast and on the East Coast. And everywhere in between. Our nation needs to repent and experience a deep cleansing of forgiveness by Our Almighty God.

PRAY FOR: Craig, me and Campaign staff and volunteers as we Get Out The Vote. Every minute counts these final days.

PRAY FOR: Faith based people to get off their butts and vote. We have been too content for too long.

REMINDER: Come join us to pray specifically for this election on this Saturday Nov 3, at our campaign headquarters – 21707 Hawthorne Blvd. Suite 302 in Torrance. We are meeting at 8am

A friend of mine was addicted to drugs. Big time.

He described his typical day for me. He would roll out of bed with the first thought thinking “where am I going to get my next fix”. He would strategically plan out his day, to hook up with his dealer. He would frantically try to text him. Or sometimes he would actually call his phone. And if his dealer didn’t respond, he immediately left his house. Showering and breakfast was not a priority. He had to find his dealer. He knew where to look. Usually his search was not long.

My friend had to have his drugs. He did not know how to function without it. He would do whatever it took. He was on a mission everyday. He made sure that everyday that mission was possible. Once he made his connection and got his drugs, he was fine for a few hours. Until the high wore off and he immediately started his search once again. Continual addiction.

What persistence he had.
What unstoppable drive.
What relentless dedication.

You could even call his behavior passionate. Just down the wrong path. A path leading to destruction.

We need to be ADDICTED to prayer. Big time.

Our typical day should start with the first thought being “ I need to talk to Jesus”. We should be strategically planning our day so we can hook up with our Lord. We should have that same urgency to want to communicate. Need to talk with Him. Not just send super short “text” sized prayers, but actually call out to Him. And be willing to go outside and away from our comfort zone. After all, Jesus did that when He was here.

Things that are important like showering and breakfast, pale in comparison to talking with our Almighty God.

We have to have it.
We don’t know how to function without it.
We should do whatever it takes.
We should be on a mission every day to sit at His throne. And make sure that everyday that mission to be with Him is POSSIBLE.

Continual addiction. Ephesians 6:18
Unstoppable drive.
Relentless dedication.

You could even call it passionate behavior. Down the right path. A path leading to sanctification.

Join us as we continue our search for PRAYER ADDICTS. (click here)

We have only a few weeks left until Nov 6. And we desperately need Your help. Certain things can be vulnerable for attack.

1. Protection. We need it for our electricity, computers, phones and data. So much depends on these things remaining intact. And that data is not lost or corrupted. A lot of critical information is being exchanged on a continual basis. Pray for nothing to be sabotaged in any way. Any attempt to destroy will fall flat. And be revealed.
And backfire.

2. Protection. Craig’s character, business and integrity. Me and our family. Evan and family. Purposeful and intentional attacks have attempted to destroy us. Pray every bit of it will backfire. Pray all of the attacks will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes. God is our defender and shield. He is our stronghold. He is much bigger than any lie or distortion that the father of lies can spew out of the pit.

3. A Powerful Uprising of Gods People that will Vote their Values. We need a massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit to revive the Church in an unprecedented way. Not just for the Assembly seat Craig is running in, but for our entire state.
And our entire nation.

Righteous Endeavor

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Word got out.

It was all over the news on TV. It was all over the radio. It was all over the Internet. It was talked about everywhere you went in Los Angeles. The arrival of the Space Shuttle Endeavor.

The weathered spacecraft and HEAVY PAYLOAD made its final journey being towed down the streets of Los Angeles. Through all the excitement, it was the headline in the local paper that caught my attention. “Righteous Endeavor”. Throughout the article, quotes from the massive crowd that witnessed this historic event were intriguing. “This is a ONCE-EVER EVENT”, “ It’s MAJESTIC”, “It’s a BEAUTIFUL MONSTER”, and “It done flew around the moon and the stars and now it’s rollin’ through the ‘hood”.

TAKEN OVER by awe, crowds strained to catch a glimpse of it. Cheering, picture taking throngs of people. What a demonstration of man’s incredible breakthrough to pioneer the unknown. What a display of power. What an impact. Some were in tears. Some felt indescribable joy. Some said it was the most amazing thing that they have ever seen.

What a project. People researched. People engineered. People designed. People built. People erected. People launched. People navigated. People discovered. Years of planning and preparation. On display for all to see.

Forgive us as a Church, God that we have forgotten that You ENGINEERED, You DESIGNED and You BUILT us. While we were in our mother’s womb.
Psalm 139:13-16

Forgive us as a Church, God that we have forgotten that Your plans and preparations for us are for good. Romans 8:28 Jeremiah 29:11
And we have NAVIGATED away from You.

Forgive us as a Church, God that we have forgotten Your continual MAJESTY and have treated You like a “Once-ever event” in our life. And we have DISCOVERED projects that have TAKEN OVER our life.

Maybe there is a “BEAUTIFUL MONSTER” that You have ERECTED in your life. Something you so desperately want, to display your power. To make an impact.

The perfect career.
The perfect home.
The perfect relationship.
The perfect kids.
The perfect body.
The perfect ministry.

Maybe you have allowed it to become an idol.

Because you look for the cheers of the crowd. Galatians 1:10
Because you strain to see if others notice. And catch more than a glimpse.
Because you kinda wish pictures would be taken of what you have accomplished.

God doesn’t LAUNCH beautiful monsters. Only man does. 1 Peter 5:6

You can unstrap that “beautiful monster” from your back. 1 Peter 5:7
You can hook it up to a tow truck of Jesus forgiveness and haul it out of your life.

Some of you will be in tears.
Some of you will have indescribable joy.

Once it’s out of your life, you can tell others about what a HEAVY PAYLOAD it was.
A demonstration of God’s incredible breakthrough.
What an IMPACT that will make.
On lives that knew you before. It will be the most amazing thing that they have seen.
What a powerful display of His glory.

Better than the Space Shuttle.

You are a true “Righteous Endeavor”.
You are a pioneer used by Him to go to unknown places and make Him known.
For His glory. For His honor.
On display. For all to see. In your “hood”.

Be Launched in His Love

PRAY FOR: The attacks that Craig’s opposition continues to do will backfire. So many outright lies about Craig’s character and our business are being broadcast everywhere. We know that God is our defender. He is above ALL things. The enemy HAS already been defeated. We know that these next few weeks the opposition will be attacking our family as well. Please pray for all of us to have supernatural strength and joy.
Pray for Evan and family as he is on the front lines too.

PRAY FOR: Continued donors to the campaign. Continued volunteers. We need people to come out in full force to take on this overwhelming task of sending righteousness to Sacramento.

PRAY FOR: Ambassadors to actively recruit 12 people they will be responsible for to vote on Nov 6 for Craig. The Christian vote WILL make the difference in the results.

PRAY FOR: Adopt a Precinct: We currently have every city covered in prayer. Pray EACH precinct gets covered. We are over halfway there. Hundreds have signed up and are getting my videos on Tuesday and Thursday. Expect miracles to take place because of this move of prayer.

PRAY FOR: Our dedicated staff. John, Mason, Sarah, Mark, Maureen. True patriots each one. Their passion to do what is right, despite any odds is amazing. Pray for them to remain focused and full of energy as we near the end of this campaign. Our volunteers that willingly show up at events “just to help” is so unbelievable. We are truly humbled by their consistent serving.

PRAISE: We serve a Risen King. We are not bound by the kingdom of this world. We belong to Gods eternal kingdom of abundant life NOW. He is High and Lifted Up. He is Exalted. We Praise His Name. The Name above ALL Names. Jesus.

Burning buildings

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

The other night Craig and I were up in LA speaking.

When we got home, I popped some popcorn, grabbed a soda, chilled on the couch and turned on the news. We needed a little relaxation and a chance to unwind. I was shocked to see a fire right off of the 101 freeway, literally JUST DOWN THE STREET from where we were.

It was a structure fire. Fire engines came from all directions. All the news stations were showing live coverage. The BUSY firemen were walking on the roof with their hoses trying to douse out the flames. At first, it looked like the fire could be contained. But it was way too hot and within a short time the roof started to collapse. The situation looked HOPELESS. The flames were so tall that the plumes of smoke could be seen from a LONG DISTANCE. No one knew what was INSIDE the building. But, because of the flames, they assumed it was VOLATILE chemicals.

It was fascinating to see the strategy that the firemen used to FIGHT this fire. A few BOLD firemen were literally on the edge of where the roof collapsed. The pillar of fire raging next to these guys was at least 100ft tall. They looked like they would be engulfed in seconds. They had no FEAR. But they KNEW WHAT TO DO. And they worked together like a team. Radioing in ALL THE TIME with their captain, because he knew everything that was going on. The building began to degenerate right before our eyes. Windows burst. Air conditioning units melted. Huge signs disappeared just leaving their metal supports. Thankfully the fire became under control. Only with a demonstration of a POWERFUL united effort.

What we forgot is that we as a Church are being watched. Not by news teams helicopters. But by our neighbors. And an Almighty God.

Forgive us God that we as a Church have allowed neighbors lives that live JUST DOWN THE STREET to degenerate into HOPELESSNESS and burst with FEAR.

Forgive us God that our lives are so busy that we have LONG DISTANCED ourselves from those flames of fear and plumes of smoke that can consume others lives. And we decide to relax and chill on the couch of “it’s not my problem”.

Forgive us God that we really don’t know what is on the INSIDE of the lost, and that we are afraid of the VOLATILE dangerous things that we might encounter when reaching out to them.

Give us Your eyes God to see the burning structures of lives not built by you. Lives that could be engulfed and collapsed with despair within seconds.
Give us Your heart God to fight with Your strategy the pillars of fire that have been erected against You with Your Love.
Give us Your desire to suit up with Your armor and get as close to the edge of destruction, to be used to pull people out of the flames of an eternal hell.

ALL the firemen were fighting that fire.
Not one was sitting in the truck.
Not one was waiting to be used.
They heard the call and couldn’t wait to go.
They knew what to do.
They got in where it was hot.
Where they might get hurt. And some of them did.

Remember that You have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

You know what to do. Matthew 28:19
You know what to say. Because HE gives You the words.

You get to radio into your Captain, the Holy Spirit ALL THE TIME. 1 Thes 5:17
You just need to listen. And stay in constant communication.
After all, He knows everything that is going on, with you and your neighbors.

He will give You POWER to fight the good fight. Acts 1:8
He will give You a Spirit of BOLDNESS to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
He will place you directly in position to douse out raging fires with the unstoppable love of Jesus. Acts 17:26,27
To rescue others with His grace and mercy like He did for you.
Hell is too hot to not.

We as a church are built on a solid foundation. Jesus Christ.

Nothing can move it.

It remains intact.

PRAYER REQUEST: As expected, the attack ads against Craig have begun. Craig’s opponent is attacking Craig’s business, integrity, and family. Please pray that we would respond with God’s wisdom and that the TRUTH about my husband would spread far and wide. Pray that the residents of the South Bay would stand up against this political slander with their voice and vote.

PRAYER REQUEST: Craig’s opponent just received another $325,000 this week. They mountain of money coming in against Craig continues to grow. Pray that the Lord would multiply our resources, both financially and with more volunteers.

PRAYER REQUEST: We have over 150 people who have adopted a precinct in the 66th district. This means that we have every city and almost half of every neighborhood covered in prayer. Unite with us in prayer to double this number in the next 7 days. We are asking the Lord for 200 more prayer warriors.

PRAYER REQUEST: Nearly 75% of Evangelical Christians don’t vote. This breaks our heart so we believe the Lord has given us a strategy to get them to the polls November 6th. We have launched the Ambassador Network where we are asking 1000 Christians in the district to pray for 12 friends/family/co-workers to vote and being their Ambassador to make sure they get to the polls. Please pray for an overwhelming response from God’s people to pray for and encourage those they love to make their voice heard through their vote.

Last Call

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

It’s been a while since I’ve heard this.

In bars and restaurants, the bar STOPS SERVING alcohol at 2am. About 15 minutes before closing, the servers will start announcing “last call” to your table. This gives you and your friends the opportunity to PLACE AN ORDER for another drink. REFRESHING. The last drink. Hence, the “last call”. The bartender is PREPARED for this last minute rush. Trust me, he is never left standing there at the bar all alone. Embarrassed. Almost always, people that are still partying will MAKE THE MOST of this opportunity. They know there are no chances left.

Sometimes they urgently rush the bar in a panic.
Sometimes they decide they want to buy another “round” for everyone at the table.

Regardless of peoples reactions to last call, the server is the one to watch. Management tells the servers that this is really the most CRITICAL TIME of the night. The servers are directed to make sure everyone hears “last call”. The server literally goes into OVERDRIVE. The server is almost RUNNING to all their assigned tables, they have such a short time to tell EVERYONE. And the servers tone of voice is usually quite insistent, but loving, because they know that the bar WILL close at 2am. Every night.

Forgive us God becuz we the Church forgot that we too have “assigned tables” of lost people that we serve. At home, at work, in our neighborhood.

Forgive us God becuz we the Church forgot that for some of those lost people TODAY may be their “last call” here on earth, and that we failed to serve them the good news of Jesus Christ.

Forgive us God becuz we the Church forgot that we are living in the most CRITICAL TIME in history. The end times. The last church. Revelation 3:14-22

And maybe we have decided a long time ago to STOP SERVING the gospel to the lost…because it’s easier to let the Pastors do it.

Forgive us God becuz some of our Pastors hesitate, even though they are PREPARED, to give the lost an “altar call” opportunity at our churches. Because they are afraid that no one will rush the altar. And that they might be left standing there all alone. Embarrassed. Mark 8:38

Give us another chance to PLACE AN ORDER for another drink of your Holy Spirit living water. Immerse us as a Church with a REFRESHING, supernatural infusion of power and grace. And because of Him…

You WILL be the server of the good news to the lost. Romans 10:14
Your manager Jesus has directed YOU to make sure that EVERYONE hears it. Matthew 28:19,20
You WILL literally go into OVERDRIVE and RUN to your lost friends, family and neighbors. Acts 1:8
You only have a short time to tell EVERYONE. Revelation 22:12,13
You get to MAKE THE MOST of every opportunity. Ephesians 5:16

No exceptions.

Let’s EXPECT the last minute rush to the altar of grace. Not just on Sunday. But every day and night. Let’s be the laborers that get to harvest it in. For His glory.

PRAY FOR: Debate Tonite! Every word out of Craigs mouth will be anointed and purposeful. This is being televised on local cable. Pray Craig will be calm and peace will reign over him. Pray for wisdom. Pray against any questions that would trip him up or cause him to stumble.

PRAY FOR: Adopt A Precinct. We still are looking for prayer warriors to cover this entire district in prayer. The videos go out on Tuesday and Thursday. Pray for clarity and direction for me regarding the videos. If you missed watching our kick off video click here.

PRAY FOR: Strength, wisdom and discernment for Craig as he makes critical decisions regarding direct mail pieces, TV commercials, etc for the campaign.

PRAY FOR: Townhalls and election forums are ongoing. Please check out for dates.

PRAY FOR: Divine protection for Evan, Craig and Shelly and their families.
