I began writing Light From A Dark Night in my head as soon as we were home from China in November 2013. A few months later in February 2014 I began putting my thoughts into words. It took me three years to finish and the book was published in February 2017.
It was an exhilarating feeling publishing my first book. My hands actually shook as I was attaching files electronically. The weight of being a “finisher” was sinking in. I had actually done it– finished something which has occupied my life for three years. For those of you out there who (like me) begin a lot of things but don’t always finish them -you’ll understand the accomplishment!
Throughout the process of writing there were many ups and downs; starts and stops. My hope is – as always – to be encouraging and in this case – inspiring.
Many of you have a God given gift to write which you’ve known about all your life. Some of you may be more like me who discovered God’s gift by pursuing the Giver of all good and perfect gifts- God the Father himself.
In other words, you may have a gift for something but don’t know it yet! If this is you then keep pursuing God for something special which will fit you like a glove.
My prayer is for all of us is to hear what Heaven is saying and write it down so all who read it can pick it up and run their race with hope.
In Christ, Anne
