When Light Dawns... One More Week Until the Book Release!

I literally have tears as I write this post. I am overwhelmed with the way that the Lord leads, guides, and provides us each and every day. As I think about the release of this book in ONE week I am overwhelmed by the grace of the Lord in giving me strength for this project. Truly, where the Lord guides, He provides everything we need.

It has been a ton of hard work and thousands of hours and it has been the Lord's grace and goodness each step of the way to see this project coming to fruition. I have to admit that this topic is so near and dear to my heart that while I have been writing this book for years, I never thought I would actually have it published. The topics in here are all things that I have prayed through, cried through, and continue to experience in this journey with Lyme Disease. The topics are things that resonate deeply in the hearts of those fighting Lyme Disease day in and day out. 

This book, "When Light Dawns" has been something I have been working on for the last couple of years throughout various times in this journey. This book is truly a vulnerable opening of my heart about living with Lyme Disease, specifically during the holiday season. My prayer is that it would be used by the Lord to encourage the hearts of those fighting this disease(no matter the age that they are!). I love (and have started to pray) what my former pastor says about book writing:

“I have a handful of prayers that I pray all the time... One is that God will put my books into the right hands at the right times. I've prayed this prayer thousands of times, and God has answered it in dramatic fashion countless times. The right book in the right hands at the right time can save a marriage, avert a mistake, demand a decision, plant a seed, conceive a dream, solve a problem, and prompt a prayer. That is why I write. And that's why, for me, a book sold is not a book sold; a book sold is a prayer answered. I don't know the name and situation of every reader, but God does, and that's all that matters.” 
-Mark Batterson-

That is exactly my prayer... that God will put my books into the right hands at the right time for someone who is hurting, struggling, or needing encouragement in this area and that they would draw closer to the heart of God. Would you join me in praying this? Thank you so much sweet friends! I hope that you have a wonderful Friday!!
