Coming in 2018 is...
The Untouchable Myth!
By the absolute goodness and grace of God, I recently signed a book deal with Baker Publishing/Chosen Books and my first will release in 2018. In The Untouchable Myth, I share my story of moral failure in ministry as a mid 20-something and what I learned through that journey--that to truly flourish in life you must be willing to admit weakness.
Although I know He's always good, God's faithfulness continues to blow me away! To take what I thought was the end of my story and journey, and to turn it into something beautiful and redemptive is both humbling and overwhelming. Now I get to share what He's done in my life and perhaps one of the most valuable lessons I've learned along the way to hopefully help others.
If you have a minute, please say a prayer. I've never felt such a burden for people, or a desire to honor God, or unqualified for what He's called me to. Prayers are much needed throughout this process! ;)
I have this to say to anyone out there with a dream in their heart--don't give up! This dream to love on and minister to people through writing was birthed as a midwest 20-year-old girl, new to ministry, 12 years ago. When I was 25 years old and at rock bottom after my moral failure, I honestly thought my dream was dead, along with any real purpose in the Kingdom. But He saw me and still had a plan for my life, buried under all the mess I had created. He redeemed me and that dream, beyond what I ever could have imagined! And finally, I've been on this book writing journey for 3 years now, working away in the hiddenness not knowing if it would ever produce anything.
Don't be discouraged by the timeline, haha! I share that to say that a dream is worth investing in and waiting for. God worked in my life and He wants to in yours! I believe with all my heart that if He would choose to use someone like me, He will use anyone willing to say "yes, Lord."
