I’m sitting on the porch drinking a coconut La Croix, pretending it’s still summer (I know all you fall people are jumping into your boots and rocking your scarves and drinking yo’ pumpkin lattes) but honestly, I’m over here trying not to have a panic attack in anticipation of fall leading to winter! Because moving from CA to TN pulls out my angry elf come winter time and cold time and I-can’t-feel-my-hands-when-I-power-walk time.
I digress. So I’m porch-writing, and soaking up this amazing fall weather, and watching the horizon when the coolest thing happens: a tiny wisp in the distance begins to curl like a sky wave and suddenly, the cloud is drenched in a rainbow. A tiny wave rainbow just hanging in the middle of the blue, cloud-confettied sky. As if God were smiling, this one’s for you. Here’s my promising reminder. Keep watching and waiting.
Maybe you too need a promise reminder.
I digress. Again. Squirrel!
Fall break is happening over here and the boys are off school for a few days, and I feel like celebrating, and who better to celebrate with than YOU!
*** It’s Fall Break Giveaway Time ***
(October 18th, 2018 – Sunday, October 21st, 2018 12am EST)
Enter to win this entire bundle of love:
One 2019 Anchored Press Weekly Devotional Planner (I’ll meet you during March 4-10 for Authentic Confession)
One code for the newly released AUDIO VERSION of Choosing REAL. That’s right.
One 30-minute Soul Care phone session. Because I want to listen to YOU!
And a partridge in a pear tree!
One 2019 Anchored Press Weekly Devotional Planner
Sometime I pinch myself for the way paths connect and cross. Take my friend Deana, creator of Anchored Press. She, my friend, is the real deal. Her heart to encourage creative, passionate women to stay in Truth and stay organized is refreshing and intentional. She goes against the grain, sees the “one” and cares more about connecting with people than building a brand. I’m honored to be a second-year contributor and will join you March 4-10 as we look at Authentic Confession. Plus, Deana asked for fellow writer friend recommendations and I love that you’ll get to “meet and read” devotions by Kate Merrick, Bobbie Schaeperkoetter, Shontell Brewer, Carey Scott and Kim Leggett.
Anchored Press gave me a special code to share with you that gives you $10 off of your total order! Just make sure you order your planner before November 15th and enter the code ANCHORED2019 in the discount box at checkout. I can’t wait for you to read my devotional on the topic of Authentic Confession, but mostly, to saturate yourself in Truth and more Truth.
One Choosing REAL audio version code
Choosing REAL released December 2016 and has gone on to sell over 10,000 + copies thanks to YOU! I’m so thankful for your support, sharing and believing in this message of responding and celebrating to how REAL God is, especially when life doesn’t go as planned.
After the book release, I took time afterwards to simply be. To get quiet and still and do lots of listening. My second book proposal is currently being pitched. In the meantime, I recorded the audio version and lemme tell you: I love writing books, devotionals and journals, but I LOVE LOVE reading the books x’s a fafillion. I felt like I was getting to have a conversation with you while I read every chapter aloud. Now we can hang out while you work out, drive or bake cookies:)
PS: Pre-order Choosing REAL: Devotional Thought Journal (releases April 2019)
Thank you for being the most amazing readers and now listeners.
30-minute Soul Care Phone Session
I’m offering a 30 minute soul care session because I care about getting to know and listen to you. What’s going on in your heart? Your world? Where do you need to be fully loved and fully known right now? I’m listening.
