We’re In the Countdown

Y’all, I’m really excited. This week is a big week for my new book. Many details are being wrapped up, and then the book is headed to press on Monday.

That’s why we’re in the countdown stage. We’ll be releasing the book for pre-orders Tuesday, November 21st, at 10AM, Central. Watch the blog for details.

God has been very gracious to me on this exciting journey. I’m overwhelmed by the countless times He gave grace and provided exactly what was needed. My family enabled me by taking over responsibilities so I could focus on the book. They also spent many hours giving valuable feedback as I edited. Friends have encouraged and cheered me on. This book included a first for me. I knew with tight deadlines there was only one way to accomplish it. Say hello to 4 a.m. wake ups.

I will give you another clue. This is a Christmas storyβ€”my favorite kind of story.

So grateful for the boost my morning mochas gave! Sweet to enjoy one as I had my Bible time.

“Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,
and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
Psalm 107:8
