Sudden fog . . . fiery collisions . . . brain injury . . .
Today marks the thirteenth anniversary of a car crash that changed our lives forever.

I am grateful and humbled to announce that Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas is publishing our family's story in a book to be released late summer of this year.
Here's a draft of the back cover copy:
Penned Without Ink: Trusting God to Write Your Story will draw you into the true story of one family’s journey of faith. It begins with a near-fatal car crash, resulting in trauma, uncertainty, and life-long limitations. Their experiences will lead you to sit beside hushed bedsides, observe delicate operations, and feel the angst of life and death decisions. In the midst of multiple layers of pain and loss, you will witness quiet miracles, sure and certain lights that pierce through the darkness. With pictures of both present-day individuals and biblical characters, Sarah captures the essence of hope born through her struggle to trust and rely on God. Between the lines, you will also uncover your own journey of trust. A faithful and loving God desires to write your life story—no matter what happens
I love to learn how things work. When I'm in a restaurant I want to know what's happening in the kitchen. When I attend a play, I wonder what's going on behind the curtain. So if you're the "wondering kind" like me, I hope you'll enjoy a few posts about what I'm learning about publishing a book. And most of all, I pray you will be blessed as you read our story and explore your own journey of trust in the God who writes perfect stories.
I'm really looking forward to this!ReplyDelete

Cannot wait to read it! Thank you for taking the steps of faith and doing the hours of work and more importantly, the risk of sharing your heart and being vulnerable on the page. I know it will bless many lives. Your story has already blessed mine.ReplyDelete
Bless you, Julie. I still think about the times you drove me to physical therapy at Allied - in my halo - before I could walk on my own. Thank you!Delete
I am so happy and excited for you. So glad it is finally happening. I know your story will be an encouragement and a blessing to many people.ReplyDelete

Congratulations, Sarah, on completing the years of work it took to write this book and the years of living, and almost dying, it took to develop your theme: "Trusting God to Write Your Story." Your story has blessed me, and there is a waiting world about to be blessed by your book.ReplyDelete
I appreciate all you've done to help me on this journey, Jo Ann. Blessings to you . . .Delete

May you be blessed as you see fruit from your labor of love.
Thanks, Jan, for taking the time to read my post. I was thinking about you the other day as I dusted the quilt rack with my first quilt we made together. Praying...Delete
