If you’ve been reading along since Day 1, you know that my dream is to publish my book in 31 Days. Ideally that means I will push a publish button on CreateSpace, and then happily wait for my copy to come in the mail. I am really stepping out on this because beyond a few steps, I don’t know what lies before me. You’ve been kind enough to join me on the journey, and I don’t want to let you down. Let me recap a little of how I got to this point before I reveal the final step on Day 13.
I jumped on board the 31 Days to Write Challenge because I needed a big push toward fulfilling my dream of publishing my book, Dare to Be Happy. For years I’ve had the dream of publishing a book.
Because I needed solutions to some struggles I faced, I used to get up in the middle of the night, go to the computer and type in “encouraging words.” I would read something inspirational, get my thinking straightened out, feel better, and go back to bed. I decided I wanted to be the one on the other side of the keyboard who provided encouragement for others. That is how the blog was born. Now I am able to read some of my own writings and feel encouraged.
My prayer is that the published version of the book will be beside a person’s bed whether through Kindle or paperback version, and they will be able to reach over, grab their Dare to Be Happy and be encouraged. Every chapter will point them to the Ultimate Answer in trusting in God through Jesus Christ, His Son, and every writing will give hope and build faith. Through this book, readers will find practical ways to apply God’s principles to create happiness in their lives on a daily basis.
I hope you will be one of them.
