Nowadays everyone is an influencer but none can do it quite like God.


I was listening to “Take Me to the King” by Tamela Mann on repeat. The words seem like she wrote them for me as tears rolled down my face. I shared my excitement for this new song with a friend, only to find out that the song was two years old. 

​That moment shook me into reality that although I love God, I had been doing life without including His influence. As I process what that meant, God’s grace humbled me, and I decided that life wasn’t bad, but it would be better with Him.


​I am Iris Kirkland, a writer influenced by God, with one intention to impact others with God’s love. I have many ideas, but I am currently working on “Influenced by God Devotionals”, a collection of scriptures and prayers available on my site to inspire a life with God.


Just think of me as your sis, and my super power is prayer. I look forward to encouraging you as you encourage me to stay in God’s influence.​
