As the months of my final homeschooling year are winding down, I feel God is calling me to have a wholehearted focus on His call on my life to write. At the moment it means turning down some things I enjoy doing, in order to focus on what is best. For now, it's enough to balance spending time with my son in his final year of schooling, and also focusing on my emerging career as a writer.
I continue the path to publication through entering various contests along the way. I pray each will bring me one step closer to being the writer God wants me to be. I'll be working on edits with my lighthouse book, while also researching and eventually beginning writing on a new book. Over the next three months I'll complete my writing course with Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild.
With choosing to say 'no' to some good activities, I have more freedom and time to spend with my son. I don't want to miss out on his final time in the nest. I praise God for this opportunity and also where He is leading me. May His name be praised.
