Some think I am just being generous when I say, “I love meeting my readers and getting out in the public.” Ask my family, I’ve always been a people person yet the idea of being in a crowd made me very nervous at the beginning. Over the past five months, God continues to strengthen, encourage, and inspire me with each new opportunity to share Heidi, Hope, and my testimony with others.
School starts next week so our summer hiatus must come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, we traveled for a couple book signings and a speaking engagement. I spend my Monday evenings at the New Haven Farmer’s Market (4 – 7 p.m. on Route 104, New Haven, NY, in front of the town hall). With the exception of Labor Day Monday, you can find me there through the end of September.
These are events I can do in the afternoon and evenings during the week. On the weekend, God’s opened opportunities to bring Hope to women’s groups, churches, and other organizations. This is an amazing time, both in preparation and in presentation – a time to draw closer to God and share His message with those I meet.
I’m thankful for the doors God continues to open and I look forward to the days to come. May I follow His lead, not mine.
Last year I revealed the cover to Where’s Heidi? One Sister’s Journey, this year we will enjoy a host of blogs highlighting, remembering, and sharing Heidi M Allen and her sister’s story. A journey of hope…
To learn other ways we remember Heidi throughout the year, read the second part of this blog tomorrow. See you then!
