Can you hear me squealing? Eeeeeek!
I couldn’t sleep last night. I woke up at 2:30am and my head was going wild with all kinds of Memorial Box ideas for you guys!
Just eight weeks ago, as I lay in the hospital wondering the future, I couldn’t have imagined The Memorial Box being finished, when I came home, I still couldn’t imagine it being finished anytime soon, But by God’s grace and astounding faithfulness – it’s done!! You guys were part of the prayers that our great God heard to heal my broken liver and He moved in a most powerful way! Thank you friends, thank you.
The truth is that as thrilled as I was to write Rescuing Ruby, I am beyond giddy to have finished The Memorial Box! Because friends, you know how I love the orphan. You know how I love talking about adoption with anyone! You know I think special treasures are probably the most valuable to our great God! You know that I love writing about the joys of large families! BUT all of those topics, as wonderful as they are, personally speaking, my life is nothing without the faithfulness of God.
The mountain-tops of life are wonderful but down in the valleys? Right? If we don’t see God working, we are toast.
Right now, personally, our family is walking through one of the largest stretches of our faith. We have zero clue how this situation will turn out. (If you happen to come hear us speak at one of the stops as we travel across the country, you may hear us talk about it, since we do not think we will be sharing publicly.)
However, in this time of trusting God for mountains to move, Dw, the kids and I have incredible peace. Why do we have peace? Because of all the things we have in our Memorial Box!! Just look at it pictured below!! Each of those items? They each represent a powerful story God’s great hand of mercy, His hand of provision, His hand of protection, His mighty Mountain-moving arm and all we can say, “God you have this current-we-have-zero-idea-what-is-going-to-happen situation in your very trustworthy hand!”
So, from my vantage point, I cannot emphasize enough the need for each person- young and old alike – to read The Memorial Box. Our prayer is that God will use The Memorial Box to renew trust, build faith, strengthen each person’s walk with Jesus and sustain all in their own trials.
In the next few days we will begin some giveaways!! More squealing!!
Dw and I have been praying and brainstorming ideas!! We will be giving away some Memorial Boxes for starters!! Actually we are going to be looking for some as we travel across the country! We will be giving away some other surprises (we both love, love, love surprises)!! I seriously cannot wait!
The Memorial Box will be released next week – so stay tuned!! It will be available on Amazon in both book and kindle versions! I am so stinkin’ excited, seriously, can you hear me?!!
