You're More Important Than a Deadline
Hello, dear friends!
I’ll keep this check-in short and sweet as a quick little update (and an ask for prayer!). Though I’ve been thinking about things to share with you, all focus is currently on completing “Stories from the Sidelines.” Walking with lesser-known people through the pages of Scripture has been quite the journey, and I’m so eager to bring you along! Today, I’m working on the chapter about Apollos and God’s showing me that we don’t need to compartmentalize our life into faith and mainstream. He created our whole selves, and every one of our moments is part of His plan. There’s so much to dig into, and I promise to have more for you once the manuscript is off to the publisher!
If you happen to think about it, would you remember me in prayer sometime in the next three weeks? This is the “so close yet so far” stage where there’s still a lot to write and edit before it’s ready to move to the next part of the process. And- here’s some vulnerability- it’s also the time when imposter syndrome sneaks in and I start to question if anyone will want to read this at all. But I’m pushing forward while praying that God uses my humble offering, just like He had a meaningful purpose for a kid’s lunch of bread and fish.
Meanwhile, can I pray for you, too? I’d love to support you in whatever you’re walking through at the moment. Please don’t hesitate to comment or reply if you’re reading this in your email inbox. You matter and it’s a blessing to encourage one another.
Alright, I must get back to Apollos. For fun, I leave you with a cute pic of Yoshi’s new haircut and a glimpse of my church office with the pig the kids named Christina Patricia Bacon (Chris P. Bacon for short). Have a wonderful day today, perhaps even with a small, unexpected joy. Those little things make a big difference.
