A Dream Come True

Today’s post is going to be different than normal because I have a really cool, personal announcement to share with you. This is honestly life-changing news for me. Back in December, I started secretly writing a book. The reason that I didn’t tell anyone, aside from a select few people, was because I wasn’t sure where it would go. I didn’t know if I would ever actually finish it. It would not be the first project that I started that I didn’t see through until completion. On top of that, based on everything that I had read, it is very difficult to get a book published. So, I thought playing my cards close to the vest was the best strategy for me. All of that being said, I am excited to announce that I will accepting a publishing deal this week!

My book is called How Great A Love: Faith, Forgiveness, and the Father. The title is taken from 1 John 3:1, “Look at how great a love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children. And we are!” The entire theme of the book can be summed up in God loves us, and Christ died for us. This is also an extremely intimate work with lots of stories taken from my life- some wonderful, some painful. I use those stories to relate scripture and God’s love to our lives. If you want to be reminded of God’s deep affection towards you (or maybe read it for the first time), then this book will be one that you will want to read. 

I am still at the beginning of the publishing journey, and I do not have an official date for when the book will hit the shelves. My hope is that it is by the end of the year. I am excited to see what God has in store for me and my writing in the future. He has already done far more with it than I really believed was possible. The fact that God has orchestrated my book getting published is a dream come true. When I look at all that he has done in my life, I should be used to him making my dreams come true by now.
