Look what I got in the mail! Dear Mother, a set of devotions for new mothers commissioned by LWML, is now in print. I think it will be available for purchase at the LWML National Convention this summer in Albuquerque. Then at LWML vendor tables after that. 🙂

Writing is a funny business. It can be so intense, yet involve so much waiting! Imagine my delight, then, when I received an image of the approved cover for a project that only recently passed doctrinal review! Yay!
LWML asked me to write Dear Mother: Devotions for New Mothers, and it looks like its making steady progress, entirely out of my hands.
Out of my hands: just the way I like it!
Ok, some times.
I’ll tell you more when it becomes available, but basically it’s a short, pocket devotional with little letters offering some Titus 2 comfort. The kind of thing you can pick up from an LWML gift table and share with new mothers in your congregation or other circles.
Happy writing, happy waiting, and happy waiting some more! And, I wish you those happy moments when you realize projects are making progress even out of sight.
I recently ran across an article with a nugget so profound that I’m still thinking about it. And, it happens to be written by a very sweet, endearing woman: Carolyn Brinkley, an LCMS deaconess who devotes much of her time to helping Lutheran military and chaplains overseas have much needed Lutheran resources.
