So for the last several weeks, I’ve been sitting on some pretty exciting news:
I have a book coming out next year! Â
The title? Â Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in the Adventures of Motherhood.Â Â The publisher? Â Loyola Press. Â The date? Â April 1, 2013 (no fooling!).
What’s it about? Â Â In a nutshell, it’s about how motherhood really is the ultimate spiritual workout. There are lessons — and grace — to be found in every skinned knee, vomit marathon, first day of preschool, and bubble-blowing session on the front lawn. Â All of motherhood is prayer, actually — even though (let’s get real!) most of us don’t see it that way when we’re right in the middle of it.
If you like this blog, I think you’ll really like the book. Â And the super-talented design folks at Loyola created an absolutely beautiful cover, the sneak preview of which had me floating on a cloud of excitement Â (I can’t share it just yet, but I will as soon as I can!).
One last thing: thanks to all of you readers who come here and read my ramblings and post such kind comments. Â Your feedback has encouraged me to take my motherhood musings beyond this online forum. Â Thank you, from the bottom of my frazzled and excited mom heart.
P.S. Â If you’re really an earlybird, you can already pre-order the book at the Loyola Press website. Â Â If you’re like me, though, you’ll procrastinate a few months. Â Don’t worry. Â I’ll remind you. Â 🙂
