My Books, What Women Fear

What Women Fear

I am shaking in my boots here, folks 🙂

No, it isn’t available for pre-order quite yet but I wanted to include you all as much as possible!!!

I am waiting on edits now but the release date is September 1, 2011.

As far as the quality of writing and the content, it is the piece I am the most proud of. The Lord showed me some things in Scripture I had missed many times, and I pray you are as blessed as I was by what He taught me.

I have long been fascinated by the questions God asks of His people in Scripture. Why does He ask? Clearly He knows the answers, right? Well, as I studied men and women in the Bible who were facing some kind of fear (fear of failure, fear of being found out, fear of being insignificant etc) guess what I also noticed?

God asked them questions.

And I believe the heart of the way we are called to deal with the fear is in the way we answer these questions. So, I wrote about my fears, my life, my God, and the answers that I believe shape us as we face fear.

Want to see the cover?!?!?! (Please say yes, please say yes…)


I will keep you posted on more details as soon as I have them, but please be praying for me as I head into edits!!! SO excited to share this with you all!!!!

Much love,

I Will Carry You, My Books

I Would Love to Meet You!!!

If you live in the area, I just wanted to remind you that I am doing a book signing at the downtown Lifeway store tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  I can’t tell you how excited I am that Pete Wilson and I get to do this together-it will be a blast.

And also, you can see for yourself that I am huge like a house. In fact, I’m not entirely sure what I will be wearing since I don’t fit into any of my maternity clothes. But it’s sure to be an adventure one way or another and Pete and I would love the chance to see you all face to face.

Thank you so much for your support!!!

My book is $10.19!

***Update*** I have wanted to share this with you all for a little while but I was sworn to secrecy. Several months ago someone asked to do an endorsement for my book. She did. I cried my eyes out and continue to every single time I read it.  A portion of that endorsement is now on the Amazon listing (link bellow) and I cannot tell you what it means to me. Although, I suppose if you read my blog you will know that this certain somebody is one of my spiritual heroes. The first Bible study I ever did was one of hers and I was not a believer at the time. It urged me to change my life and spend my days loving the Lord boldly, so to see her words associated with my daughter is, well, amazing.  Thank you so much Beth. You will never know how you have blessed me in this life…

(original post follows)

If you have already pre-ordered, Amazon will give you the lower price. Right now the book is $10.19. Click Here if you would like to get one 🙂 It may stay this price but I have no idea so I thought I would let you all know now!

I have been sewing up a STORM lately and I am going to try and post some pictures here later today…also, I mentioned on Twitter that I have been looking for some vintage children’s clothing patterns (love 1940’s/1950’s dresses etc.) and haven’t had much luck finding them for a good price. Most are $35 and up!!!! Whoa. So if you know of any other places to get them cheaper, could you let me know? I have looked on Etsy and Ebay and there isn’t too much right now…

Also, tonight is the first service at Crosspoint for Christmas and there are several tomorrow as well. Todd is singing (and I know this mostly because he has listened to his songs on repeat over the past week and a half to learn them. Non-stop. Yesterday I finally asked him if we could possibly listen to something else and he burst out laughing. And if you think I said “Hey Todd, I have so enjoyed the sound of that in my ears 24 hours a day for the last week and can’t imagine I have reached my fill, but could we take a little break and then jump right back in?”

You are wrong.

But because I am super-spiritual, I would never ever lose my cool and stop the CD while staring at Todd with a look that says, “Touch it again and my head will likely explode.”

Ahh, the virtues of a patient wife.

I doubt that even the Proverbs 31 lady would have made it past Saturday.

Just sayin’.


Come to Crosspoint if you don’t already have plans!!!! Would love to see you there and celebrate Christmas with you.

Much love,

Anything I Missed?

***Thank you for all of your great questions-I knew you weren’t going to let me down. Keep ’em coming!!!! I am taking notes and they are really helping me process some things I think I will add…I so appreciated hearing your voices in all of this!!! Thanks…***

First off, the quote thing is rocking my world. I started to write them out with a pen and then I decided there were too many so I’m going to print them all out. If you need some motivation for the day, or you have a great quote to share, please go to my last post…so great. We were sitting outside and I kept going, “WOW,” and “Oh that’s good.” Todd made me read them out loud 🙂

And because you all are so helpful, I want to ask a favor of you. As I have been writing the book, I have really been telling my story but I feel like so many other people were a part of it. Some of you have been with me from the beginning, and many of you have been through a similar situation. I want you all to be a part of what I am doing now as well, and to that end, I would love to ask you to send me any questions you may have that I have not addressed on my blog.
I’m sure there are many gaps I have left, and I would really love to get a feel for the largest ones so that I can add them into the book.
I hope this makes sense. I haven’t had my coffee yet.
So, feel free to leave your questions about my pregnancy/family/life etc. (whatever!) here or in email if you prefer.
I said yesterday that writing a book is like a marathon, and I am really grateful to have you all running with me.
Not that I run. Ever.
Maybe I just answered your question…
