Tonight I'm signing 75 books & study guides for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
I get to speak to these sweet ones at a special dinner next week, and am so honored that their team has chosen to gift this message to their women.
I'm constantly amazed that through these words I get to reach through the pages, cup their precious faces and declare purpose and destiny over them.
Friend, if you have a book baby brewing inside you - and a million excuses why you can't or shouldn't write it - write it anyway.
Do it afraid.
Start before you're ready.
Begin imperfectly.
Just start writing.
You have a story to tell and a message to share, and we're waiting for you to share it.
Go.

God knew I needed a reminder today. And he used a friend to bring it. Maybe I can be that friend for you with this image. You are valuable.

Day officially brightened!  You know, I've been sharing with my #RiseUpWriters group about how numbers do not define us. I created a video on my new YouTube channel to talk about what success looks like as a Christian writer. Because this platform stuff can test our souls. We live in a world where numbers come into play so often. We feel compared to and we do comparing too. We wonder if we should keep going at times.

Yet, God defines who we are and our job is to faithfully follow where He leads us. We follow Him. May those who follow us only follow as we look to Him. At least I hope that's what we're doing. God is the ultimate leader. And, the ultimate servant.

Our job as writers/speakers/entrepreneurs is to steward our craft, our unique gifting, and our work in every step. Ultimately, we steward so we can serve. That is why we will work through our fears, fight the enemy, and learn how to improve what we do.

And I have to tell you, I serve alongside of some of the most grateful people in the #RiseUpWriters community. I've been blessed by email notes, cards, and gifts in ways that blow my mind. Just when I'm feeling down and weary, it seems God prompts someone to send a little love my way.
This. This reminds me to care more about serving well than about any fear or pride which may keep me from doing so. This is success. Loving God and loving others.

Also, I'm wearing yellow and another pretty awesome gift I received this week, the key necklace which says 'valuable'. OK, God. I hear you again. You see. I choose to trust it is enough for me.
Serve God as you serve others.

Thank you @divorcedandthriving! You have a voice of hope for many who are confused, hurt, and feeling stuck.

(Swipe for more) Thrilled to host @lisawhittle in Austin, TX. She blessed local writers and speakers with encouragement and insight. We also got signed copies of her recent book, "Put Your Warrior Boots On". Soooo grateful!!
.
Every lady in this room is a blessing in my life and having them all together filled my heart today. .
May we live #jesusstrong in the places God calls each of us to. .
Don't know what Jesus strong is? Get the book!

One is like the ground and the other is like the sky. One keeps my feet firmly planted in faith, and the other keeps my eyes ever-lifted in hope. I am thankful for the words and encouragement of @lisawhittle and @kristinkschell. Today, getting to spend in-real-life time with both of them was a gift. Lisa's book, "Put Your Warrior Boots On," is about being #JesusStrong. And Kristin's book, "The Turquoise Table," is about being the best kind of #frontyardpeople. And these women? They're all about grace.

Fill your space with humans who help you remember who you are and Whose you are. Make time to read good words. Make even more time to listen to them when they are spoken to you. Give time to folks who could use a good word or two. Never forget that we are in this together, love. We need each other.

(Thanks so much, @thejoleneu, for a great #RiseUpWriters afternoon).

Chad Allen for the writing win this week. I'd have awarded grand champion if he suggested a creme brûlée. What would you reward yourself with?

Surprise! Came to meet @lisawhittle for dinner and look who showed up! It's @brimckoy, fellow writer for #gracetable. Shocked and happy to meet in person! .
AND...she has a book coming up in just a few weeks for food lovers and meeting at the table. "Come and Eat: Celebrating Life and Grace Around the Everyday Table" #comeandeatmovement .

How about sharing a little love for all our favorite writing spots? Yesterday, I sat by a fire at @lamadeleinecafe. Today, I'm sitting at @teapiocalounge. Where do you love to write?

Hands up for writer support and community! Today, accountability & focus with Renee Fisher. I've needed this push to get my #unleashsheets out there! We spent a few hours in her home getting our separate projects done. Then later tonight, she'll be at my house for #riseupwriters, our local gathering.
If you are a Christian writer in need of support and community, join us on Facebook. We'll be live streaming again tonight as we talk strengths/weaknesses.

I was going back through some blog posts to help me in preparing for tomorrow night's message. That was the first line of one, and I was excited all over again! It's so important to know our identity in Christ!!

I'm so honored to get a chance to share with our Hope Church students tomorrow!

Yes.
No.
Stay.
Go.
Welcome.
Good-bye.
Rise.
Walk.
I do.
I will.
Come forth.
Forgive.
Sometimes the simplest words carry the most power.
Write on. Speak Up. Words are powerful.

Join @marydemuth and I on the Counselor Thoughts podcast (link in profile) as we discuss the concept of "restory," how to see your past from a new perspective and how to join with God to create a new future for yourself and your children. Also, I'd love to see you at the Restory Conference in the DFW area on September 16. We will be giving away ticket for this event. #counselorthoughts #restoryconference #hopeafterhurt #chrisiancounselor #podcast #christianwriter #christianspeaker #hisgracegirls #hisgirlsgather #hopewriters #riseupwriters

Just yesterday, I was sharing my story with a group of friends. As I did, one point jumped out.
.
How God took my college desire to be a Christian psychologist, which I was told I couldn't be, and let me live a whole lot of hard before bringing me full circle back to the same passion. .
What I do with it now is vastly different than what I would have done as a young single mom without good boundaries, a weak understanding of how to live out my faith step by step, and a whole lot of self-doubt.
.
Today, I look back and see situations which the enemy meant for harm and God meant for good.
.
Today, I see young desire turned into aged delight.
.
Today, I have hindsight as I look on God's hand in my life and the purpose that was always there. Even if I couldn't see it. Even when I thought I'd never get to do what I enjoy.
.
Its early morning now and I'm drinking coffee ☕️ while reading a new 📚 book. #walkitout by @triciagoyer
.
And it's like a chord deep in my soul has been struck. I'm listening to the symphony of God.
.
There's a symphony for each of us. The years of practice sometimes sound cacophonous, but it's a melody rich with instrumental beauty which only God knows
.
Take your step of faith, friend. Big or small, if it's out of obedience it's because of love.

God, bless our words, we women of your Spirit.
Help us to glorify You, not ourselves.
Give us understanding.
Equip us to teach Your truth, that we never lead others astray.

Our thoughts are not Your thoughts, we know, but as we grow more like Your Son, we are transformed.
The renewing of our minds is a gift we can bless others with, dear friends, as we praise God’s name among the nations. .

It is sobering and quite thrilling, my friends, to know God has our names written in a book. (It is this same book where our tears are stored, yours and mine. You know, the fat ones that shrink our world till all we see is our sorrow through the blur and the tiny ones that escape at the kitchen sink, surprising like a paper cut when you least expect it.) But not just anyone’s name will be found in in this book--only those who fear the Lord.

Yet, many will say, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name cast out devils and in thy name done many wonderful works?” And He shall say, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23

Many make a living speaking and writing glowing praise about God and how He makes them feel--great swelling words. (2 Peter 2:18)

But God will say, “Go away, I never knew you”. Many believe in God and think on His name. Even the devils believe in God and tremble. (James 2:19)

No, the names written in this book are those who fear, listen, follow, and obey in all their imperfect way, trusting in the God of their salvation to cover them with the righteousness of Christ.

Speak, my friends, of God with fear.
Speak often one to another. (He hears!) Declare His goodness, utter His mercy,
bid others to gaze upon His mighty works with you.
And teach, teach with love, the word of truth.
For when we do, our very names will glisten on the page with permanence by the indelible handwriting of God. {Week 11 of Reading 12 Old Testament Books in 12 Weeks}

"The more we learn about the ways of God and the more we experience answered prayers, we develop the strength through faith." Join me today as I write about being bold in prayer and belief.

I also share some of my favorite books on prayer.

One of these days, I hope to write books that help others feel less alone in their journey to live well. I pray we live brave and free and I believe we can.
.
Every now and then I chip away at the first book I can't not write. This message has flickered and burned for awhile now. God's writing it in my life and someday I hope it helps bring life to the souls of others as well. .
Would you pray for me as I go? As I lean in hard to the message I need for my heart too? .
My biggest prayer request is that my complicated mind would get out of the way and the simply beauty of the Holy Spirit would lead. He really does know best. .
Thank you, friends. Live well. You are loved. .
P.S. if you think of a title for a book you think I should write, I'm all ears! I love your ideas. .
