Spirit-Led Parenting : An Update!
So, WHAT is going on with this book by now? Well…a LOT!
On Tuesday, in a fantastic conference call with Jonathan, our editor/mentor at Civitas Press, Megan and I heard two amazing words:
Which means: the writing is pretty much done. (EEEK!) Another read-through for fine-tuning, but basically our book is finished! It is homestretch time. We are astonished, thankful, giddy, and so very thrilled with the way it has come together. This has been hard, stretching, rewarding, life-changing work. Through laughter and tears and much prayer, as well as with Jonathan’s encouragement to look deeper and work harder, we can truly say that we poured everything we could into this project. And that is an incredibly good feeling.
We have a final title:
Spirit-Led Parenting: From Fear to Freedom in Baby’s First Year
There is work being done on the book cover, and we will very shortly begin the task of gathering endorsements and developing promotional plans. It’s a crazy new world for us, but we are excited and nervous and just feeling ridiculously blessed by the journey so far.
Thank you for standing with us, holding our hands, and cheering us on. We are grateful beyond words, and cannot wait to share more with you as the process moves forward!
