I FINISHED Friends!!
Thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement. Writing this book was one of the toughest things I have ever done in my life to be sure!
I have always known I wanted to write but have never felt “good enough” or “quite ready”. Honestly, I can not be the judge of how “good” my book is even now. It is just too close to my heart. That’s like asking a Mom if her child is awesome! I am going to have to wait to hear from my EDITOR (and we all know I need a great Editor!) first to see how close I got to good 🙂 (go easy on me SWEET KIM!)
Either way, it is a dream come true just to get the book written! Summer is a great time for dreams to come true! 🙂
Let me ask YOU, WHAT is hot in your heart?
What has seemed TOO BIG, too impossible, for you to really think you could ever accomplish?
I’m thinking God might just want you to take some Summer steps towards your dream.
He LOVES to be the only way you can make it! I have been SO reminded of that! Maybe you need to be reminded? When was the last time you did something that ONLY GOD could accomplish?
One of the things that struct me about this writing process is how often I had to preach to MYSELF as I was writing. I most often felt, this book is for ME! I’ the one who needs to get UnStuck! I guess thats a good thing since most of us share common challenges and heart issues. Another thing I kept thinking was Lord, why now? I am a bit OLD to get started on such a fresh work, don’t cha think!! Funny thing is, when I first started my crisis pregnancy center I though I was TOO YOUNG! We can never outthink God. Remember the story of Sarai? She heard a thing of 2 about challenging God about His missing the RIGHT TIME for her dreams to come true.
As we roll into the lazy days of Summer, I am now TRYING to let myself just REST a bit. It is difficult for me. Especially after a season of frenzy.
I have some big plans for reading; organizing a bit more of my house that I haven’t gotten so since our move; preparing for some upcoming speaking engagements; cooking some new things; spending some much needed time with family and friends.
But this I know–I can’t stop for to long before pressing on to the next thing God has for me.
First, I have to write the WORKBOOK for my last book. Then, I have 2 other books bubbling in my heart. A book living as a God honoring woman in today’s culture and a GOD HONORING sizzling Inspirational Romance that has been growing in my heart for about 5 years.
Tell me will you, on this first day of Summer, what’s the dream that you have been hiding? avoiding? fearing?
What is the ONE thing it would take to move you closer to that dream?
If you will share it, I will enter your name into my June Giveaway.
Lastly, if your not tired of me, I would love to have you get in on my Sizzling Summer Study in preparation for that book. I will be emailing those of you who have already signed up–later this week. If you have not already signed up, let me know here and I’ll add your name to the list!
Huge Hugs friends!
