A big step…..

Do you know what this is????

It’s a lot of things.

It’s a BIG step toward my dream of becoming a writer.

It’s a opportunity to be brave.

It’s a chance to follow through on a vision the Lord gave me in 2002.

It’s my story of freedom in the Lord.

It’s the first manuscript I’m sending to a publisher.

Crazy, huh? I mean, I’ve sent things out before, kinda out into the cosmos of publishing, but this one is different. This one follows a phone call to Nashville where I was told exactly who to send it to and exactly what will happen to it then.

This little manuscript has a hope and a future. Just like me. 🙂

PLEASE take a minute and PRAY. Pray that God would guide this children’s book into the right hands. Here’s a chance for you to pray BIG- let’s just pray that it gets accepted and published and that children all over the world get to read a story that tells of God’s unconditional love and acceptance. Pray for FAVOR with the publishing house. Pray for a divine priority to be on this envelope- that it would not fall between the cracks on some editor’s desk. Pray that this would only be the BEGINNING.

I’m stepping toward my dream. Well, one of my dreams….. 🙂

I’m praying BIG. Will you join me?

(FYI- it takes 6-8 weeks to hear back from them, so that should be sometime in August. Summer of praying BIG? Don’t mind if I do.)

    Don’t mind if I do. When I read your blogs, it is in your voice. I can hear your voice when I read your blogs. You are funny, Annie. And a wicked awesome writer. I couldn’t make out the small print, but can already tell it is a hit.

    I was just reading Sam the part of the Bible where God compares Abraham’s descendants to the stars in the sky– HE can do it, Annie! Can’t wait to hear what happens :-)Face

    Good for you. We’ll just pray that envelope right on into the right hands. Lucky hands those will be, too.
