A Book is (almost) Born!

Last year, it was my desire to finish something I began right after the triplets were born. Well--- somehow, I did it! In fact, it is the reason I have not written anything here in a while. More than the project itself, the learning behind the work has meant so much to me. It gave me an environment to sit and think about the past many years. It helped me focus on why what has happened within my family has affected me so deeply.

What was born out of evenings upon evenings of writing was a book. After a lot of prayer and advice, I have decided to self-publish. I am hoping somewhere, there is a place for stories such as this and writing from a housewife who is contemplative and sees life through a theological lens.

One aspect of this that is making me slightly uncomfortable is the fundraising part. In order to offset the cost of publishing, I have started a kickstarter campaign. The fact is, it would be so helpful to have others come alongside me and help! The good news, you get a book and some other stuff in the process! I am signing this group of books for this campaign particularly, not because my signature means anything, but because it gives me an opportunity to connect with each reader. You are going on a journey with me! And in a small way, physically signing each page will allow me to think of you, the reader, and where you are in life. For those who have and will "back" this project, you are such an encouragement to me. Thank you.

If you are interested, please feel free to visit the campaign page here. And if you are willing to help me get the word out, I would also invite you to share the link to the kickstarter page as well.
