I'm returning to you a new and "changed" woman. I spent Thursday through Saturday in Rochester, New York for the Women of Faith 2010 Conference! God is amazing and I have fourteen pages of notes to remind me of how God spoke to me and oodles more memories and thoughts racing around in my brain.
God spoke to me through the speakers, the worship music and the fellowship! Women of Faith is having a writing contest and after some prayer and goosebumps as I read about it in the event flyer - I've decided to submit my manuscript to them. The finalized manuscript is due in January but I'm aiming for December 31st - winners will be announced on March 1st, 2011.
I'm asking for your prayers to guide me over the next eleven weeks as I work to complete the revision my manuscript. May I write for God and share my spiritual and physical journey of being the sister of an abducted child - Although eighteen years old - she was a child and I am her only sister, and she mine. Thank you for praying - I'm not asking you to pray I would win the contest but to pray I am able to continue the revision process with healing and glory for God each step of the way. Pray lives would be touched and the publisher God has in mind would be the one to approach me - if it Thomas Nelson or WestBow Press than Praise God! If it is another publishing house then praise God still! Thank you for your prayers!
I'm also hoping to blog more as a way to be held accountable with you all - my prayer warriers and supporters. Feel free to drop me an email, blog posting or note - both encouraging and pushing when needed to finish the revisions! Thank you so much in advance!
Ephesians 3:20 - 21 (The Message)
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Glory to God in the church!
Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!
Glory down all the generations!
Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!
