Last weekend I attended a writer's conference near Asheville, North Carolina. The only thing on my agenda: hopefully meeting the writing partner I apparently needed to get my speaking topic, Redesign Your HomeMaking: Creating Room to Love God and Love People into print.
I begged a ride from Raleigh, and my reluctance (or refusal or fear or laziness) to drive an unfamiliar rental car led to my meeting my writing partner! Then -- I arrived home to a welcome email: Harvest House, a major publisher located in Eugene, Oregon, gave me the thumbs-up. They're interested in seeing my proposal. I had this invitation two years ago, but I wasn't ready. I hadn't met Eddie. Yes, my partner and helper for the home management topic is a guy. This should be interesting.
Anyway, finally, after all these years, my speaking topic Redesign Your HomeMaking will become a book, either through Harvest House or another publisher, Lighthouse Publishers of the Carolinas.
If you've heard this talk, I'd love some new feedback. You can post it here, or email me, or Facebook message me. What stuck with you? What worked? What didn't? What problems are you still facing in caring for your home so that you are freed up to spend more time with Jesus and then have more resources, like time, money, and developed talents to go out and love others?
