Family Always Trumps

Have you ever noticed that you are the most productive when you are the busiest? I "try" to devote time each day for "book stuff", otherwise my day fills up.

The house, dog, ministry, kids, grandkids, emails, social media...


I am sure you understand. Maybe you are overwhelmed at times too.

I am not a very regulated person. I make lists to keep me in line. I would rather be outside looking at flowers or trees or anything else except what I am supposed to be doing.

This is why twice a week I go somewhere like Starbucks or Panera, somewhere with wifi. I go for at least an hour or so and ignore all else. I am far too distracted at home to get much done. And now that I have a publish date for book number two, it's even crazier.

Book number two publish date, August 1, 2019 for "It's Not About The Pie ~ a fresh look at hospitality"

I need to finish writing that in the next few months. This book will have a lot of photos and have a whole different look. Layout will take time. Hopefully it will show all of you that we need to open our hearts and homes to others. It will also give some tips and ideas for when you have people come to your home. I am very excited about this project.

However, I must work on marketing Not Really A Princess. I would much rather write than market. BUT I am passionate about sharing the hope God gives us to those who are hurting. So I rely on God to give me insight on this road I'm on and am excited where it will lead.I am looking forward to meeting people across the country who have their own stories to share.

But one of the things that beats my book journey is my amazing husband, my kids and grandkids. They are priority before everything but God. They are who make me smile and enjoy each day. They are who my heart breaks for when times are tough. They are who I lay awake and pray for each night. I love them so very much.

Thank you Lord for giving them to me.
