Writing Brave

            " We are called to be a company of people on earth who know how to be loved by God."

On Instagram I am participating in Susannah Conway's December Reflections 2016. Every day we she gives us a topic and we post a pic to represent this theme. Yesterday's theme was "Five Things About Me." I finally mustered up the courage to share the news - I am writing a book! 

My book has been in process for a few years now but I got serious this fall when I signed a self-publishing contract to turn a dream into reality.

At first self-publishing seemed rather narcissistic. After doing some research and talking to a few people with experience, I realized trends have changed in the publishing world. I found a reputable self-publishing company and took the plunge.

The flowered folder on my desk holds the nearly-completed manuscript of my journey over the past 4 years. I will share more in the days and weeks ahead. For now I am learning to trust in God's love for me, which is a huge lesson begun on a path of brokeness.
