Okay so I’m really laying myself bare here. I’m going to say out loud what I have been keeping under wraps for a while now.
I’m writing a book.
Okay, I’m not ready to shout it from the rooftops just yet but I am terrified excited to share this news with you here. Brooke, author of Warrior Prayers and Notes to Aspiring Writers: Your Dream, God’s Plan (due out next week), encouraged her blog readers to come up with an elevator pitch for our books, so here it goes:
The working title is “Bountiful: Cultivating a fruitful life in dry seasons”
Where can we look when find ourselves in a season that is painful or dry? Galatians 5 is a gift from God for a parched soul. My book walks us through the lush garden of the fruit of the spirit, picking one fruit at a time and examining its healing properties for hurting lives. We can find that place of refreshing and renewal in Christ.
I pray this is only the beginning of great things. I am writing this book because someone (maybe you!) needs to read it. God has help for others on the other side of my faltering pen.
I’d appreciate your prayers as I struggle to complete what I feel God has placed on my heart to share.
