Whatever you want to title this.

I have so much to little time! Quite a problem my friends. It's a rare quite few moments in my house so I thought I would catch you up on everything.

Life has been busy this week and there are many things I am excited and looking foreword to in the coming weeks. But there is one event that has my heart, mind and soul consumed right now. Part of the reason this blog and your blogs aren't getting to much attention from me these days.

She Speaks!

We are at less than the two month mark and that alone is making my tummy spin. Yes, I did this last year but this year is going to be much more nerve-racking than last year. As if that could happen! But it is.

I've gone ahead and made my appointments to meet with publishers! Excited, Nervous and a Praying-Hard-Girl is where my emotions range these days.

Putting together this proposal has been no easy task! There is so much already out there in Christian Publishing that creating a new, fresh and catchy book isn't like a walk in the park!

Thankfully the Lord has provided me with some incredible people inside and outside the publishing world that are guiding me, praying for me and encouraging me along this process.

And yes, I am greatly prepared to hear a "No.". may have to pick me up off the floor if that comes ok??? That's what friends are for right? I've already poured so much into this, that a "no" will be REALLY hard to take at this point, but I am a realist and I know that the yes may not come right away.

I'm also so excited that my buddy Amy over at Mulch In Their Pockets is coming too! It was hard going alone last year and I have a feeling we will have WAY to much fun together! With Amy along for the ride, nothing will be dull. :)

And I know God's got something amazing for her since He provided in an awesome way for her to come! You can read about it by clicking,
here. I can't wait to see what He does through her!

Plus if I get a straight up "NO" from the publisher's, she can scrape me up off the floor! Other ladies in attendance might not do that, Amy will. ;) hee hee.

Along with getting ready for that, we have a beach trip coming up, a big move, and lot's of girly summer break time in-between. Packing and cleaning things out is not really on the mind...I am to much of procrastinator to actually do things the RIGHT way. I like to consume my thoughts with what color to paint the kitchen and the sorts......priorities I tell ya!!

I still cannot believe we are moving, again. But as I told my husband the other day, "What fun would it be for us to live in the same place longer than two years?" Ha Ha! He didn't think that was to funny..... :)

The girls are getting more excited about their new school and I am feeling more at peace about them going there. I really think it's going to be a good thing. For all of us.

So that's basically what's going on in our neck of the woods. I hope to catch up with all that's going on with you very soon! Until then..

Not taking one step without Him,

Wow! That is some agenda. I am praying for great favor for you at She Speaks. I'm on the waiting list; please pray I get to come.

Strength is my prayer for you.

My goodness ... that makes me tired :)

You do have a lot going on - take one moment at a time. I am praying for you ... for God's will and for God's strength in all things. I love that you're taking Amy with you - she will certainly keep you grounded - ha!
