It wasn’t hard for me to write this book. I mean, it was hard if you count opening my laptop and hooking up a vein. There were many times that I had to stop writing for a while because the emotion was too much. So yeah, that part was hard. But I love to write, and writing about the miracles we’ve experienced is amazing.
What was really hard was actually making it into a book. I had to learn about formatting (SO MUCH FORMATTING), covers, ISBN numbers, and more. Not only that, but now I have to let people know about it, because what’s the point of writing about all these miracles if I don’t share it?
I’ve been procrastinating about that because now that it’s done, I’d like to curl up and take a nap, not write a marketing plan! The idea of asking people to read it and help spread the word makes me physically ill.
Recently, I forced myself to do it. With my heart racing, mouth dry, and literally seeing spots, I sent messages to about 10 people who are in my target audience and have much more influence than me. I asked them to read my book and help me get the word out about it. Then I almost puked while I waited for their responses.
Every one of them said yes. They were encouraging and kind. I fought through crippling anxiety to walk in obedience to the calling God has given us all – to tell others about the great things He has done in our lives. Now I have to keep pressing on through the voices in my mind that tell me to just forget it.
As I push through my fears and limiting beliefs, I ask you, dear readers, to also help spread the word about the awesome things God has done in saving and healing Redmond.
Let’s work together to make HIS name famous. ♥️
And in that day you will say: “Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, For He has done excellent things; This is known in all the earth. – Isaiah 12:4-5
