It’s been a year and a half in the making, but finally on TUESDAY “Spoken For” comes out, a book I co-authored with Robin Jones Gunn. As I’m sitting in bed, Aslan passed out beside me and my big belly in front of me (Baby K is due so soon!), I’m in awe of the Lord. I’ve always loved writing. I have a huge box of journals in our storage area, I always have to fill out a card to the brim, and I get such joy from blogging. But if you had asked me if I’d ever publish a book, I’d laugh and say only in my wildest dreams. Oh yes, I have dreamed of writing a book for years. Prayed about it a lot. Started outlines. But even in all that, I didn’t know how to move forward, what exactly to write and how in the world a publishing company would actually want what I had to say.
But the Lord knew my heart. He saw my desire and He has answered with a resounding yes in such a sweet, beautiful way. And what a blessing it has been to be able to write my first book with not only my favorite author, but my friend and mentor.
So to ramp up for release week, Robin and I have some fun things planned!
1. We’ll be doing a 10-day blog series on being Spoken For. We broke down each chapter, and wanted to dig in a little deeper. I’ll start off the series on Monday, April 14th, and then Robin will continue the series on Tuesday, April 15th on her blog. We’ll continue to go back and forth for the next 10 days. So please come join us and leave comments. We’d love to connect with you!
2. This Tuesday, April 15th, Robin and I will be doing a live video event!! We’d love for you to come hang out with us at 8pm EST/5pm PST. We’ll be interacting with you all on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube throughout the live viewing. Also- we’ll be giving away fun prizes that you won’t want to miss out on! So grab some girls, and a huge bowl of popcorn, and join us this Tuesday! (The link is below, but it won’t be live until the actual event- so come back here on Tuesday, or you can go directly to YouTube.) See you then!
