Since 2011 Watch God Work Ministries has helped faithful believers live supernaturally through Christ

Do you want more of God, but aren’t sure how to get there? 

Have you ever wondered about the purpose of your life, or if you were meant for something greater? 

Do you read about the miracles in the Bible and wonder how you can experience them, too? 

Jesus promised us in John 14:12,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” (NKJV)

This promise is true. And it is for you!

Hi, I'm Rebecca Olmstead

I’ve been where you are. I was raised in the church, but saw little of God’s power exhibited there. I was never taught that it was even possible to have the Holy Spirit move in and through me in miraculous ways, but I craved it! I wanted to know the God I read about in the Bible.

So, I began my own search, believing that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

My search took an unexpected turn when I was diagnosed with a tumor. But, once God had my full attention, I began to experience the supernatural power of the Risen Christ in living color. Vivid dreams and visions, prophetic words, healings, Heavenly visitations, even meeting with Jesus face-to-face. It was during that journey that I was commissioned to found Watch God Work Ministries.

Now, I am devoted to helping fellow seekers like you learn how to draw near to God and live fully in His Spirit to discover and fulfill their God-given destinies.

Here is how:

  • Daily power-filled devotions in your inbox
  • In-depth Bible studies

  • Personalized prayer and dream interpretation
  • Books and study guides

My Tesimony

I was raised in the midst of two extremes—Sundays found me in church, learning about a God who was watching and judging me, but every day in between, was a hyper-vigilant exercise in self-preservation.

My earliest years were filled with alcoholism, sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, an epileptic mother, anger, bitterness, divorce. . . I was born with the label of “bastard”—not a big deal by today’s standard, but in a small town in the 60s, it was very big.

Fear ruled my existence—fear of the world and fear of God. I grew up believing I was going to hell, because, no matter how hard I tried to be good, I was a miserable failure.

I was wrong, of course. Even then, God had a plan for me. God said in Jeremiah 1:5:

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”

This is true of all of us, and through all the pain, I felt God’s presence in my life, preserving me. I knew I didn’t fit into this world, but somehow, I’d find the way home. Until I did, He provided me a sanctuary from the storms in my grandma, who probably saved my life as well as my sanity.

As I grew older, physical abuse gave way to emotional sabotage. Weaknesses and confidences were wielded against me at every opportunity. Though my family had our good times, we had a running joke that we’d never be the Waltons. No one outside our family would have guessed just how messed up we were.

The more I read the Bible, the more I began to question—loudly—the disparaging discrepancies between what my family and church professed, and what they lived. This didn’t do much for my popularity, at home or in the church. I wanted what God’s Word promised, but no one would show me how to get it. Because no one knew.

In my desperation for stability, I turned to the only consistent thing in my life—food. Anorexia and bulimia gave me the illusion of some control in my life. I soon learned I had just become a slave to a new master. Finally, in anger I rebelled, thinking I was rebelling against my “spiritual leaders,” but in reality, rebelling against God.

I couldn’t stay away long, though. Without Him I felt empty and worthless.

I believed God could do through me what He did through His Apostles. I also knew He required something of me to make this happen. But, I was too afraid and selfish to give Him my all.

When I started my own family, I realized it wasn’t just my life I was playing Russian roulette with. I wanted my kids to have everything God promised, and I knew the double-standard I’d grown up with was not the way. I was going to have to get out of the middle of the road and choose a side.

I still remember the shame I felt at my embarrassment praying over meals in my own home. And, I was terrified at the thought of sharing Jesus with anyone, including my baby. Jesus was just not a topic of conversation in my family growing up. But, I knew the Bible well enough to know Jesus had said that if we were ashamed of Him before man, He would be ashamed of us before God and the angels. So, I pressed on, praying for His help.

This is where I’m supposed to say everything was wonderful, and we lived happily ever after, right?


I continued to play tug-o-war with God through an abusive marriage, an old back injury, depression, the births of five children and the death of one, two miscarriages, the deaths of my grandma and mother, infidelity, a nasty divorce, and poverty.

Then God said, “Enough,” and He took everything else I was hanging onto in fear—everything keeping me from Him. That was fun—not. But, when I finally surrendered to Him, I began to experience that “peace that passes all understanding” and God’s supernatural power in my life. God’s Word came alive in me.

God began pouring blessings into my life that HE chose. Blessings I would have never thought of asking for, like a wonderful, Christian husband and another beautiful child.

And, it wasn’t just material things; the more God stripped away old thought patterns and habits, the more room there was for Him. And, the more He revealed Himself to me, the more of Him I wanted. He was faithful in His time and His way.

Trusting God means understanding that our ideas of what’s good for us aren’t always the same as God’s.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts” Isaiah 55:9 NKJV.

In 2009, I went to my doctor with a debilitating pain in my right leg. An MRI revealed a large nerve sheath tumor. There was a time when I would have been devastated by the idea of cancer growing inside me, but I was filled with an indescribable peace—a supernatural peace. I knew, like everything else in my life, God had a purpose for that tumor. Live or die, He would be glorified in me.

I began sharing my journey in a hospital blog. Two surgeries revealed two miracles God worked in my body, but even more importantly, God showed me through this blog that I am a living testimony to His power, faithfulness, forgiveness, and love, and I need to share it.

Even my past failures could bless others and bring God glory. Not the failures in themselves, but God’s faithfulness to forgive and carry me through. He was in it all from the beginning.

Now, if God could find worth in a non-conformist rebel like me, there’s hope for everyone.

What we believe

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and our personal Lord and Savior.

     “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16 NKJV. 

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, our personal instruction guide to a good life on earth.

      “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 NKJV.

We believe Jesus died in our place and rose again in three days to live and reign forever.

     “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 NKJV.

We believe that God is three persons in one: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that He created us in His likeness: Mind, Body, and Spirit.

     For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” 1 John 5:7 NKJV.

     “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” Genesis 1:27 NKJV.

We believe that God is sovereign, and everything and everyone is in His control.

     “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace and creat evil: I the LORD do all these things” Isaiah 45:7 KJV.

We believe God has a plan for everyone.

     “‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,’ says the LORD, ‘thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV.

We believe God has given people the right to choose or reject Him, and this is free will.

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” Joshua 24:15 NKJV.

We believe everyone is in need of Salvation.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 NKJV.

We believe the only way to Heaven is through Christ Jesus.

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me'” John 14:6 NKJV.

“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” Acts 4:12 NKJV.

We believe God’s love for us is immeasurable.

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8 NKJV.
