I've never joined Three Word Wednesday before, but it has been on my radar for a while! My friend Kristin recently took it over for my other friend Beth, and I figured there was no better time to join in than the present.
It's book launch week.
It's becoming real.
Like exciting, terrifying, panic-inducing real.
Like jumping into the water for the first time.
In writing this book, I knew I wanted to be honest and raw and vulnerable.
But, oh goodness, it is starting to get scary to know that people will be reading it. I mean, yes, that's the idea, people will hopefully read it. I guess just the anticipation of my journey to motherhood (the good and the bad) being available to everyone to read is shattering my comfort levels.
This is scary.
There are so many feelings to be had. I feel all of them.
The only thing there is to do now is rest. The book is complete. God will now do with it as He pleases.
This whole writing process has been such a journey of faith and trust.
I have faith that God has called me to share our story and I trust that He will use it however He pleases.
I know I am not the best writer. I know writing this book felt like such a stretch. Show, don't tell. Use dialog. How did you feel? Help us connect.
It was a challenge to write more creatively than I usually do here.
But I have grown so much through it. And now, I just have to know that God is going to use my obedience in writing this book for His glory.
May it all be for Him!
And please, I hope the water isn't too cold.
