I have some good news and some perhaps less than good news for those who have been a reader for a while.
The good news:
I have been awarded a scholarship to attend the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference the first week in August. I will have many opportunities to learn and grow as a writer, and also to meet with industry professionals who might (hopefully) be interested in my work. This is one more door that God has opened before me, and I am walking through!
It was most unexpected, and although I am thrilled, I confess, I'm concerned. It comes at a somewhat inconvenient time. I am attending the She Speaks women's conference the weekend before, and our family vacation is also at that time. The time crunch to prepare for both conferences and vacation means that something else has to give.
So I've decided that for July and maybe early August, I need to pause in writing for this blog. But I still want to be sharing with you, so I will be scheduling some of my older favorite posts. Since there are some new readers out there, they'll be new to you. And for my faithful "old" friends, please consider these as "summer re-runs"! I know sometimes, I need to hear things a second time anyway..
I promise to update you with news from the conferences, and I covet your prayers for these meetings. It's exciting and a little scary at the same time, a whole new chapter of my life. I thank you for walking on this journey with me..
Most of all, I pray God's will is done, that I will sense His will and be obedient to it, that I will be able to fulfill His calling, and He be glorified in and through me.
And I pray that for you, my friend, as well.
As it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Cor. 2:9
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Eph. 3:20-22
