I knew when I took the job that it was temporary, and I knew that I was going to work with some amazing people. I was not prepared for how much God would use the job to grow me. I feel as if in the last three months I have gained three years of spiritual and character maturity. I have connected with some amazing people, and made some amazing memories.
While I will stay involved with Austin Disaster Relief Network, I won't be there everyday of the week. I will be getting back to my writing and blogging, and that is a bitter-sweet feeling.
I never know where God's plans for my life will take me next, but as I have discovered in the last few months, they can move very quickly. I have been very blessed by my time at ADRN and look forward to seeing what God has next in my life.
It started last year...
A writing friend and I were talking about contests, Jane Austen, and group projects and then it happened: we decided to do it!
For the past few months I have been working with Kelsey, Sarah, Rebekah, Emily, Laura, and cover designer Hannah to create a series of books.
The seires? A set six books that retell the Jane Austen novels, set in America 1930's. I am very excited to say that I have had the honor of writing the Emma book which I have titled...
But this isn't all! You can be part of this project too! We are adding a seventh book to the series. A short story collection that you can be part of! Check out the details here:
Stay tuned for more details!
Last week was a bit hard if you hadn't guessed. My sister Rose had to make a hard but courageous decision, and I was very emotional on her behalf. I used some of the pent up emotions to write some blog posts, and a few people contacted me, with kind words of encouragement.
Before everyone thought that I was over here very depressed, I wanted to tell you that this week has been full of wonderful blessings already.
It started off with a weekend that was restful and full of deep, godly conversations.
The last two days at work have been less stressful and more productive from the week before.
I have been blessed with wonderful communications from friends near and far.
I have been blessed by a dozen small things so that all I really have to say is:
Thank you Lord for your many blessings!
Need another book to last you for the rest of summer? This month, I am putting some of my kindle books for free! Shall we start with one set in the Middle Ages?
