God has reminded me recently of the many things He has accomplished in my journey as an author over the last few years.
Just three years ago in 2014, I spent Palm Sunday weekend at the Mount Hermon Christian Writers conference. God had provided the “Promising Beginnings” scholarship, which paid my way.
Though I believed my completed manuscript for A Wife of Valor was ready to go, the non-fiction mentor track at that conference showed me just how much work I had yet to do. In the years that followed, I devoted many hours to revising and rewriting the book using all I had learned.
Last year, on Palm Sunday 2016, the Indiegogo campaign for A Wife of Valor came to a close with just over 100% funding. By means of the generous donations of many supporters, God had provided the $3,500 needed to fully underwrite the costs of publishing A Wife of Valor
By Palm Sunday this year, A Wife of Valor had been chosen as one of ten finalists in the competition for the Excellence in Editing Award.
It’s both heartening and humbling to reflect back on all God has done. I look forward with invigorated expectancy toward what He may have in store for the years ahead.
