I hope you are all well. Let me start by saying I am so grateful for each and every one of you. So many of you have been such an encouragement as I’ve put my heart and soul into learning how to be a better storyteller. I love to write about my own life and I love to write fictional short stories. I learned that I loved fiction after a painful experience that kept me from sharing anything too personal. It’s true that God takes the painful things in our life and turns them for good. I never would’ve written fiction if I hadn’t been pushed out there and now I am SO thankful. Am I thankful for the painful event? I’m getting there. I do see God’s hand in it and I learned a lot about myself, as well. So, I’m pretty sure I can say with a sincere heart, it was worth it.
The reason I wanted to send a personal note is because starting this Thursday, July 15th, I will begin publishing a sixteen part series. It’s an entirely fictional story based on no one; it’s a story the Lord gave me and I had the privilege of putting it to paper. I am thrilled for you to read it; but I am also quite nervous because I am still a work in progress. I will publish twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, for the next eight weeks or so. So, get ready! I hope this story meets you in a tender place and I pray you find it to be a blessing.
THANK YOU for being such a support to me and to this budding ministry! I would be so lost without a place to share words. It’s because of YOU that I have an opportunity to write stories and the lessons I’ve learned; I don’t take it for granted, not for a single moment. May God bless you for encouraging me and continuing to read as I work to refine the gift the Good Lord has given me. Thank you for giving me grace as I grow.
With that being said, the name of the story is…
“Blessed Assurance: A Story of Hope.”
