Straight Pipes Devotions for Bikers by Barbara Ann Derksen

Straight Pipes Devotions for Bikers  

by Barbara Ann Derksen


This devotional is designed to encourage bikers in their Christian walk and, at
the same time, provide them with a tool to disciple others. Readers will find
encouragement to spend time with God daily, study His Word, share their faith
with others, and then disciple new believers.


I have read many devotions for lots of groups of people, but this is the first one I’ve read for bikers. What a great idea and wonderful devotional from author Barbara Derksen. This book starts off with a list of Promises for Bikers, which is scripture verses taken from The Message version of the Bible. Then with scripture taken from the NIV Bible, Ms. Derkson has written devotions geared just for those bikers our there.

And to just give you a little taste of what is in this book, here are some of the devotions you will find here:
Biker Blessings
Turning Ourselves In
Biker Laws
Cruising with the King
Band of Brothers
Tattoo the Image
Bad Company
One Track Mind
Oh and if you want to know what each is about, well pick up a copy of this and read all about it!

Wow, how cool is this? Barbara Derksen not only gives devotions just for bikers, but she uses biker talk and that language unique only to bikers. I think it is so neat that Barbara picked verses that go with the biker lifestyle. What a great book for bikers to take with them on the road, for encouragement to themselves, and also to help them minister to others and be an encouragement to all they come in contact with. But if you are not a biker and you are curious to know what Barbara wrote in her book, not to worry because this devotional can be for anyone. The most important thing in “Straight Pipes” is that the author tells people about Jesus, and how to live for Him anywhere, and in anything they do!

I highly recommend this really neat book of devotions for the biker out there, or the biker in your life. So why not pick up your copy today HERE.


Watching the expressions on the faces of her readers as well as answering questions about her characters is what drives author and speaker, Barbara Ann Derksen to write yet another book and another. Her favorite genre is murder mystery but each book brings forth characters who rely on God as they solve the puzzle in their life. Her readers also have a tremendous amount of input when they wonder what happened to this character or that one, even if they are secondary to the story.

Barbara’s devotionals are sought after each year when she publishes a new one that reflects what God has placed on her heart. From Straight Pipes, her first, to Chaps, the latest, Barbara’s devotions take people to the place where God can touch their heart and leave a lasting impression. 2012 will see the release of her fifth about the Sermon on the Mount.

Born in Canada, Barbara lived in the US for 12 years. There her writing surfaced as she worked as a journalist for six years with over 2500 articles published in newspapers and magazines during that time. Her readership expanded while in the States but now the Canadian public has discovered the gift that God has given yet another Canadian.

She is a member of The Word Guild, Manitoba Writer’s Guild, The Writer’s Collective, and Christian Motorcyclists Association where each summer her books are used to inspire and encourage.

Barbara has spoken across the US and in Manitoba, Canada for women’s groups and in church services on topics such as The Writing Experience, working in the ministry of Christian Motorcyclists Association, Love, Parenting, Time Management, and a host of others.

With 11 books to her credit, each one surpasses the last, according to her readers. They look forward to Silence, the fourth in the Wilton/Strait mystery series, and Road Trip, her fifth devotional about the Sermon on the Mount in 2012. Barbara will allow some new characters to tell their story in a new series Finders Keepers which she plans to begin in 2012.

Developing a social media presence, getting published at and adding her books to their kindle collection in Canada, the US, Great Britain, France and Germany, and also adding her books to has kept her busy this year. She has also attended a few workshops to add to her skill level. Barbara Ann Would love to meet you, whenever she is in your area. Check her schedule to find out when she will stop by.
