I write enough as it is! So I thought I’d “show” you my biography in a picture scrapbook format, instead….
For the first 7 years after becoming a mom, I didn’t write at all. Not a word. God had very clearly closed a door on the kind of books I’d been writing and called me to focus on raising my little ones. As one year flowed into the next, I grew more convinced that my days as a writer were lost and gone for good.
God, it turns out, had different plans.
In His time, He began to nudge me to write again. Still romances, but romances written for Him and for the Christian market. I started fleshing out a story idea. Then eventually, I carved out the time to sit down in front of my computer. Slowly but surely, I wrote My Stubborn Heart.
The fact that I was able to complete it while simultaneously mothering my 3 kids is a flat-out miracle. I can’t attribute it to anything except His greatness. I would have failed unless He helped me. But, He’s full of mercy and sufficiency and He did help me. Anything good, entertaining, or moving about my books comes from Him and is due strictly to His ability.
So here I am – amazed, humbled, and thankful beyond words that God has given me a second chance to be an author at this particular phase and stage of my life.
I’m grateful for the journey He’s led me on so far and excited and expectant about the journey ahead.
