A Book Announcement!


Shortly after Slow Lane was completed, I was giddy and adrenaline was strong to start a second project. I got started right away and then sort of petered out in discouragement over the publishing experience that left me feeling drained and taken advantage of.

Starting last summer, I really wanted to be purposeful about finishing this work and I'm finally ready to tell you more about it! The rough draft is complete and the professional edit is being worked on right now - getting closer to sharing a new thing of beauty with you.

Speaking of beauty, this is a common theme around here and that is because it is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. While working on Slow Lane, a second idea was close at hand and the title has stuck with me for the last few years.


Today, I'm excited to tell you that title and a little more about this next work that I hope to share with you later this year!

Da-da-da-da!!!

Beauty Maker: The Ministry of God-Given Beauty

Similar in style to Slow Lane, this will be a handbook of sorts for you to walk through Bible Study, reflection questions and also photos and journaling pages.


Here she is! I wanted her to look like Slow's sister - so there are some unifying elements here that tie them together.

Beauty Maker will also include some hands-on projects for you to create beauty with your own hands as well!

I can't wait to share more in the months ahead - thank you for your support of my writing and the heart of beauty!

Meanwhile, Slow Lane is back on Amazon! I don't know why the ship date is so long, it should print on demand and be to you quickly!

SO happy for you, Monica! I'm excited to see the new book and am glad Slow Lane is available again! Was telling a friend about it recently and will tell her how to get it now. God has been so faithful to answer these prayers!
