I am not sure I have ever felt as vulnerable as I do right now, sitting quietly at my computer with my menagerie of dogs sprawled around me waiting for dinner. I have just sent to two friends the manuscript of a Christian novel I wrote from my heart in a 3.5-week period at the start of this year. The writing is not my best, at all, but my heart is so surrendered to the Lord in my daily life – and in the writing of this book – that I believe the Lord will touch and transform lives through this book in a mighty way. I used to hide behind writing technique. I enjoyed pats on the back, good grades, an Ivy League education, a nice-looking resume. All of this is inconsequential to me now. What I desire more than anything is that the Lord would use my passion for Him, my surrendered heart, the gifts He has given me, and my desire to honor and serve Him – to bring the Lord and His healing to a world in need. Last year – one of the worst of my life – God used my brokenness to take the hardening off my heart. Today my heart is raw, vulnerable, and open to His ways and His will. I pray He opens all the doors necessary to the publication of this book so that everything He desire to do through the book – and my heart – would manifest. For His glory.
