Thought You Should Know ...

Normally, I don't like to toot my own horn. It just doesn't sound right, doesn't ring right, doesn't jab with me or float my boat.

That being said, I'm going to do all of the above.

I have to tell you about a little book that published me. Okay, so the book isn't just about me. It's also about 40 other ladies who wrote fantastic words and essays and were chosen to be in the Cup of Comfort line of books, called A Cup of Comfort for Christian Women.

This book is seriously inspirational. I had more fun reading through it than writing my own story. It is a wonderfully encouraging book for other women, touches the soul, ministers to the heart, and puts a little more happiness into all of us.

The book is great as a gift, great for yourself, and great to have around when you need specific encouragement in a specific area.

Okay then, enough said. I am happy to be officially "published" in a "real" book (a national bestselling one at that) even if my name is hidden, small, shrouded and insignificant.

The editor, Colleen Sell, was a pleasure to work with, I learned a lot, and I'm most happy, knowing and hoping that my little story called "A Test of Tithe" will help others out there with their lives, as much as my experience helped -- and shaped me -- for the rest of mine.
