I feel like an elephant who just gave birth after a looooong pregnancy, 645 days. Almost two years! As we moms know, giving birth takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. (Sorry dads!) Birthing is labor intensive!
So after all the hard work and the long wait to get the 1 Corinthians 13 Parent series (2 books) off my computer and onto to the publisher’s desk, my co-author, Becky Danielson, and I can say, “Have a Cigar!”
As soon as the doctor, I mean Bold Vision Books, provides the due date, I will fill you in. Needless to say, I am over-the-top excited.
The books are framed around 1 Corinthians 13, The LOVE chapter. As of right now the working titles are:
Raising Little Kids with Big Love (toddlers – youngsters)
Raising Big Kids with Supernatural Love (tweens- teens)
(Fraternal Twins, so to speak!)
Many of you have prayed for this project. I am so thankful for you and your continued encouragement and support. If you are one of the many preschools, MOPS groups, and other parent groups that receive this blog…I can’t wait to come back to your church or school with these newly published books! (They should be available sometime in spring of 2014.)
I will continue to keep you posted. And thanks again for all your prayers. I am grateful!
Oh, Happy Day!
With faith, hope, and love,
P.S. If you are on Facebook you may want to like the 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting ministry page. Becky and I now have a team of 17 faith, family, and education experts. Check it out! LOTS of good stuff for parents of babies to young adults.
