Promises In The Dark ebook

Yea, I know. It’s been forever since I’ve posted here. No excuses! Just life happening.

Right now I’m working on a new ebook, Promises In The Dark.  Its theme is God’s promises versus the world’s promises. The world promises so much, yet comes up empty – and often its promises are LIES. God’s promises are true and forever, and fulfill and satisfy you.

The deadline for this book was last year. Just so much going on!

My new deadline is March 15, 2014. The plan is to put it on Amazon first as an ebook, then self-publish with the POD company Create Space, highly recommended by my speaker/author friend Karen Wells.

If you’re not on my ezine list at, the main hub, be sure to sign up with your name and email address and you’ll be first to hear about its release.

What about you? What are you working on right now with your writing – a book, an article, blog posts? Non-fiction or fiction? Leave your comments below. I’d love to hear from you!

Summer fun

I’ve been super busy the last 6 months, between planning and hosting the RELEASED Women’s Conference in Kansas City, moving to our new beautiful home, and wrapping up coaching a client.

I finally have my new office organized. Yay, feels so good!

Now I’m praying for God to show me my next step in speaking and writing.

I’m now booking speaking engagements for fall and winter 2013 and throughout 2014, so if you are an event planner or you know someone who needs a speaker for their women’s event, email me at

Meanwhile, for relaxation I’m reading Lysa Terkeust’s book, Who Holds The Key To Your Heart?

What new books are you reading this summer?

Don’t forget to take time out this summer for fun in the sun with your family and friends! But don’t forget the sunscreen! 🙂

You are making a difference with your writing

Sometimes you wonder if you’re making any difference here.

You know that this life is not all about YOU. But maybe you don’t want to just “play small.” Maybe you have BIG dreams and long for more. Being “average” and mediocrity are unacceptable to you.

Today we hear the term Rock Star which is supposed to be a positive, but stardom is fleeting and not always fulfilling, as Michael Jackson’s and Whitney Houston’s superstar lives and tragic, early deaths attest.

Or you finally reach fame and fortune, but get caught up in cocaine addiction and alcoholism like Belinda Carlisle (formerly of the Go-Go Girls) or Lindsay Lohan.

Or maybe you haven’t reached stardom at all, and you don’t WANT to, but you do desire for your life to make an IMPACT, a real difference.

Today I was encouraged with an email from a woman, who recently bought 50 copies of my book on women and spiritual warfare to teach as a Bible study at her church.

She said she appreciated, “your willingness to bring sensitive subject matter that is a real part of the human experience to the place where we can peel aware layers of secrecy or deliberate denial. Only God knows how each story is affecting each lady, but I believe this will have been a life-changing summer study.”

Jane VanOsdol’s chapter on her newborn baby dying from birth defects made the women in this Bible study cry. Many women also relate to Stephanie Buckwalter’s story of depression.

The Bible study teacher who bought my book said it is challenging her and the women in the class to look closer at what they believe.

More than anything, The Hands Of A Woman makes you much more aware of the spiritual battle that rages around us every day. If we could see or hear it, we would be shocked.

You are making more of a difference with your writing than you think.

Keep writing!

“We can do no great things – only small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa, Founder of the Missionaries of Charity
