Devotions for New Mothers

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.

  1. Congratulations! I look forward to seeing and sharing it.

  2. “Out of our hands” does feel good, doesn’t it?

    Just submitted a proposal package for a secular writing “prize.” My writing sample skillfully* balancing environmental and Christian concerns. We’ll see what comes of it. They don’t announce for another month, and I have no idea how many entries they normally receive.

    It’s only the second writing “contest” I’ve ever entered. I was actually inspired by the parameters of the guidelines, and may pursue the book project even without their support.
    It remains to be seen whether the prize judges will agree; I’m not optimistic, since to a secularist, any mention of God sounds intrusive.

    • I’m always amazed how inspiring guidelines can be!

      I’m thankful you found this opportunity and inspiration. That sounds like a great project and I hope you will pursue the book project either way.

      Wishing you all the best.

  3. Nice! I can see this being very appreciated (not least by people wanting a gift to take to baby showers).
