What a fun week I’m having! Monday I participated in Goodreads Hide A Book Day to celebrate their 10th anniversary! I hit up some of my favorite places and spaces, like Tree of Life Cafe, Jeni’s (only the nation’s best ice cream!), and Chic-Fil-A. (Can we say Hello to the One App?!)
For more information, be sure to check out all the hashtags #goodreadsturns10 #hideabookday and #ibelieveinbooksfaires , as well as #onemorestepbook.
While hiding books around my city is SUPER fun, I didn’t want YOU, my awesome online readers, to feel left out. So I’m hosting a One More Step Book Giveaway today!! Hooray!
I should tell you that the other reason for my especially festive and happy “mood” is that Taylor, my special needs girlie, is turning 21 on Thursday, the 21st! Ya’ll when doctors tell you that the average lifespan for your daughter’s disease is 10-15 years when she is 4 years old, then birthdays mean A LOT! This girl has defied the odds time and time again and God has graciously given us much life and love to celebrate on her birthday tomorrow.
When I first outlined One More Step, my goal was to help people find their way to strength through God’s Word. Scripture became so alive to me over the years that I wanted to do my best to help others know how to experience the Word in the same way or more so. I never made a conscience decision to share our family’s story of redemption and grace, but as the book principles flowed out of me on to the screen, so did the supportive illustrations from my dear husband and sweet children. My editor ran with it and I’m grateful that she did.
I want to thank you for praying for Taylor last week when I sent out this little SOS:
Our Sweet T could use your prayers today. Many up and down days but we’re learning to count it all joy and give thanks IN all things. Praising the Lord for the gift of life and breath. May your Wednesday reflect the same! #onemorestepbook #praisehimanyway
