The Lord has SHOWN OUT today!

I find that words flee from me right now. I can barely fathom how a little story that I wrote in 2014 while teaching juniors the meaning of allegory has found its way to TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network).

I shared the story with them as an illustration for allegory so that we could analyze it in class. Then, “Purposeful Day” sat alone inside a Note in my old iPhone 6 for 7 years.

It was by coincidence or providence that I remembered that story the week of Thanksgiving 2020, and I hoped it would still be inside my Notes. I sent it as an attachment, tweaked the copy, and searched for an illustrator for Sarah and Sammy Stone.

I held my breath as I stepped out on faith to hire Joshua Wichterich as my illustrator, and I truly know that his blessing me with his talent has brought FAVOR to this project. I am also very thankful for Rhett Harwell, my commission agent with Trinity Publishing for working with me and supporting me in this process. I will conclude this post with this scripture:

I am an English teacher, mother, and wife, but I love to write. I feel that I am blessed to be able to use my talent to write about my children's books, poems, short fiction, and parenting. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my experiences with beginning a writing career while focusing on my children and my job. I look forward to comments and to hear from my readers!
