 Three years ago, my comfortable, suburban, mini-van driving bubble burst!  Through an interesting journey, I was yanked from my white picket fence existence and found myself working with women in poverty! My first response was to run away from the brokenness, but God had a different plan. Realizing that He was not going to let me leave...I begged for Him to equip me for this journey.  He astounded me.  The journey required that I begin to uncover areas of my life that were holding me back from living a "sold out" life and loving on the "least of these".  As I journaled this process, a book was birthed.  It is my heart's desire that the words jump off the page and stir a restlessness in the heart's and souls of women.  I want to see the book inspire women to give sacrificially of themselves and answer the call that is placed on their lives.  

It is my  desire that the funds raised will go towards a professional editor, designer and other costs associated with self publishing the book.

Risks and challenges

I anticipate that several challenges could accompany the process of publishing the book. The biggest being TIME. The editing process is a necessary step and I expect to be asked to make revisions and changes to the draft. I am grateful to have a very supportive network of friends and family that can assist me during this time. I also expect that as a mother of four, staying on task and deadlines could be a challenge. I will again, depend on my support team for assistance and accountability.
