Sharing the Love

Today I just have some fun things I’d like to share with you.

Agape Review did a Q&A interview with me this week. I’ve done online interviews in the past, but this one was especially enjoyable because they really did their homework! The questions they sent me weren’t the usual generic ones but included specific details from my website and blog, which told me someone had actually read them! That personal touch made it extra special.

One of my editing clients, Joseph Sorrentino, wrote a poem for me after we finished the work on his memoir, God, ADHD and Me: A Veterans Journey. That book just released, and he posted the poem on his blog along with a vignette about how God led him to me. The poem is titled “A Box of Scrambled Thoughts.” It touches my heart every time I read it. (And if you have ADHD or know someone who does, I’m sure his book will touch your heart!)

A highly respected editing colleague, Karin Beery, posted a glowing review of my Editing Secrets of Best-Selling Authors on BookBub, which means the world to me coming from her.

And on 9/13, author Stephen W. Hiemstra posted an in-depth review of Editing Secrets of Best-Selling Authors on his blog. He wrote, “Aspiring writers and experienced authors will both find editing gems in this book.”

To be honest, I’ve faced some difficult work challenges in the past several weeks. Some are being resolved even now, while others still lie heavy on my heart. But in the midst of the winding and sometimes heartbreaking journey, blessings like these are precious gifts from my loving heavenly Father, who delights in reminding me that He is working in me and through me. Even when the road gets tough.

If you’re experiencing some trials right now, I pray that our gracious God will send you special blessings that turn your focus from the difficulties to the one who holds everything in His hands and who makes all things beautiful in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:11), who causes ALL things work together for good for those who love Him and are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28), and who “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV).
