I did it!!
I met my book deadline this past Monday. I will never forget the feeling I had when I stood in Kinko's holding my whole manuscript in my hands. I did it!!! I wrote a book. Whooo Hooo!

Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement. They meant the world to me. Many have asked if I am completely done. Well, all l of my chapters are complete, but my very kind editor gave me until August 9th to turn in the end of chapter questions and scripture prayers.

This week we have our annual She Speaks conference for Proverbs 31 ministries. Although, I don’t have any big speaking sessions to teach this year, I have several responsibilities. So I am busy getting ready for that and reviewing my book for final touches. Taking it all day at a time, trusting God to accomplish all that concerns me. I know more than ever that He is able to supply just what I need for each day.

As I celebrate the completion of my first manuscript, my friend Shari is celebrating the birth of her first book this month, entitled "Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad." Our friend Karen did a fun interview with Shari recently and is giving away a copy of the book, so be sure to hop over for a chance to win!

I'll be spending this week with my family and getting ready for She Speaks; then finishing the rest of my book so let's keep in touch on Facebook for the next little while. If you would like to be "friends" please click here or my FB profile photo. I would love to stay in touch that way. It's so fun to see your faces and read about your daily lives, too.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend and rest of July, can you believe it's almost over?!

self doubts!! yes they permeate every cell in my body.
My mom is very self consious and I have followed in her foot steps
when I was a public speaker, I spent a lot of time chooseing the right outfit and accessories. I did not devote as much time to the presentation.
I am no longer working-- God has better things for me to do
and all that anxiety is gone! PTL
