Behind The Book

There are moments in life that shape us and change who we are. But what happens when you take those moments and transform them into words? They are words that tell a story, but it is not just my story. My story represents many stories. It is a voice for the woman who sits in her hospital bed, confused by the baby looking up at her. The little life she holds is not what she planned for. 

Words have turned into pages, and pages into a book. It is a reminder to the mother who burries her thoughts in guilt. She longs to find joy in the days that feel like a mess. 

As I sit and read through my finished book I am overwhelmed with how God has changed me. I am also amazed at the ways I am slow to change, he is faithful to accomplish something good in me, even in the most undeserving of days. 

Every time I sit down to write, I ask God to help me write honestly. That he would use my writing in someone's life. There have been days that I don't want to write. When I don't want to articulate a story or a struggle in my heart, because sometimes it hurts too much. I love that as I read through what I have written, even through the difficult days, I have always been given hope. The joy and laughter in our home comes from somewhere deep. While writing these pages I have learned to see life differently. I have become more grateful. I want to give you a piece of my heart.

I hope you enjoy The Mural & The Maker.
