Big Celebration!!

Did you hear me shout in celebration the other day?!!  Surely you heard it, a noise of rejoicing here in Arizona! 

The Lord enabled me to finally finish the manuscript for my new book!!!  And now it is at the first proofreader!  When she is done, then it goes on to the next one.  By the time it's done, I’m sure it will be in ship-shape!

For those of you who don't know, I am working on a book about Second Generation Christians.  I have been interviewing those that are living for God to discover what their parents did right, and let me tell you, the answers they give are absolutely fascinating!  I believe this information will be extremely valuable for Christian parents wanting to raise their children to serve the Lord.  So really, it isn't my book - it's their book.  It's the stories and advice from more than 50 young people who survived their growing up years without bailing and going out into the world, and are happily serving God today.

But before we can hold the book in our hands...

Now begins the arduous task of getting permissions, obtaining a cover design, doing the two appendixes, the preface, and finding the endorsements.  I still have a TON of work ahead of me, but there may be light at the end of the tunnel…hopefully it’s not a train!  ;)

I would SO appreciate your prayers for me and for the book as I finish this project.  Please pray that the Lord will bless it for His glory!

I know you are relieved. This generation needs to know what you are writing about. Although times are different and youth have so much more to deal with than we did - we had the same devil to draw us back.
I never have regretted serving the Lord from a child to this day. I don't feel I missed a thing.
Blessings as the book gets finished and gets out.

Hello Lisa...

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you lots!

I've read a little here on your sight..have to come back..

but I noted your post about writing a book. The topic is perfect, and needed. I'd love to read it.

I too have a desire to write a book and have put it on hold with much prayer for when..and how. I have already written most. It would be nice to chat about how you went about it.

Thank you and God bless

Thank you so much, Hope! I would love to chat with you about your book. Now you've got me curious!

My editor just finished going through some of the chapters, and I'm looking forward to hearing what she has to say.

Email me through the contact form and maybe we can either email, or talk, or something.

God Bless!
