Pinch me, I think I'm dreaming...

Since my last post A LOT has happened! 
Exciting - life changing - GREAT news!
This girl is getting her book published!
Can I get a...Woo-Hoo! Amen! Hallelujah!
It was quite the nail biting, on-my-knees-praying kind of adventure the last few months.  I'll give you a quick overview.  It all started with my MOTTTS group as we jumped into a 40 Prayer Challenge.  During this time I spent a lot of time in prayer with the Lord over His desires and where He was calling me in my passion with writing.  Extremely long story short, one night I checked my e-mail and TWO publishers had sent me a contract to publish with their company...within 20 minutes of each other.  Crazy, I know.
From the beginning I felt a pull towards one, but with it being such a HUGE decision I wanted to take some time to make sure I had the peace I needed.  After tons of prayer, advice from friends and family, talking my husband's ear off and an emotional break down here and there, I finally made my decision.  I am so excited to join the publishing family of White Feather Press.  I am so thankful for Skip and Sara and their willingness to take a chance on this newbie.
So, right now I am in the final editing stage.  Once I feel satisfied with my final changes to the manuscript I will send it into the publisher...and the wheels will begin to turn!
Thanks to everyone that has encouraged me along the way with texts, e-mails, brownies, prayers and coming up to me with a kind congrats! Also for my 55 blog followers that have my back - you guys rock!!!  I also had a nice surprise last weekend when I got together with my best friends for a night of laughing until we couldn't breathe.  They surprised me with flowers and a made the experience a little more real.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by such great people!
Now, off to burn the midnight oil and edit a couple chapters.
As my son Brayden always says, "Let's Do This!"
