Bringing life to a book is a lot like childbirth! This
baby, I mean book, has been planned-for about three years – let me explain.
About three years ago the Lord planted this big seed in me and called it 40 days of Lent, I said, “Ok, Lord, that sounds like a great devotional and I’m all in.” It wasn’t the time of year to “get pregnant” with a book so I put it off.
This past December, my Three Best Friends and I were in deep quietude one evening and the voice was everything but audible!
This is the year for 40 Days of Lent.
I even got out my gold necklace from 20 years ago, which is simply a block letter charm YES LORD on a chain.
The gestation period was a full month.
Then the labor began: edits, formatting, Kindle formatting, uploads, find more errors, upload again, oh! another edit, upload again! Three times was the charm.
Today, I gave birth to twins!
The twins names are Paperback and Kindle-edition.
They don’t look exactly alike on the inside – one has embellishments, maps, quotes, and a picture or two; her name is Paperback.
The other one is plain. Words only. No maps, no pictures; his name is Kindle-edition.
So, it’s totally up to you, which one you align yourself with.
But, for this Book Mom? I love them both equally – they are my great heart-work and God has a lovely plan for them.
On this Lenten journey you will meet Bartimaeus, Zacchaeus, Philip the Disciple, and Mrs. Pilate. You will learn about the Sad You See’s, the Fair You See’s, and the Sanhedrin. It is a pilgrimage for pilgrims – the body of Christ.
Travel with me through the 40 days of Lent, beginning March 1st and all the way up to Resurrection Morning (did you know you do not observe Lent on the Sunday’s throughout the Lenten Season?), learn how to roast a fabulous Passover Leg of Lamb, and how to plant your very own Easter garden.
Com’on, let’s quit talking about it and let’s begin the adventure!
And, a postscript: IF you read the book, PLEASE leave a comment on Amazon, PLEASE. I’ll send you sugar on top if you do!
