I'm back//missions trips are amazing + Cover reveal

*waves* Hello lovely peoples! I hope this blog post finds you well! It's finding me a bit tired, but content and extremely thankful for the many amazing ways God has worked these past ten days. Yesterday was spent in the air and various international airports, and by God's grace I made it safely back home around 6pm last night. Thank you all so much for your prayers! We were blessed with great weather, no delayed flights, and a really awesome time in Mexico.

The trip was just . . . wow, guys. I have so much to say, and I'm not even sure how to say it. The past week has both been incredibly challenging in my walk with the Lord, yet at the same time such a blessing. Looking back in reflection, I can truly say it was the most amazing and precious week of my life. I leaned so much. We saw God work in so, so many different ways, so many different times. And for the first time, I realized just how blessed I am. And you know what? the past ten days were nothing short of inspiring.

Like I said above, I'm honestly not sure how to put all my thoughts and feelings into words right now. I did journal while I was gone, so I'm going to go back and re-read the entries  and take a few days to reflect on the time I spent there. And pray that God will give me the right words to share it all with you. So be looking for a post something like that on Friday. :)

For now . . . remember that hint I gave you about a cover? Well . . . it's a cover reveal. For A Question of Courage. Yes, I know, it's still around four months away for the *tentative* October publishing date. And normally that's a bit early to do a cover reveal. But . . . I've had this cover idea since last year around this time. And I've had the completed cover for around two months now. And I HAVE to share it with you guys! Hopefully you're as excited to see it as I am to show it to you. ;) The reveal will happen on July 1st, which is a Saturday. I'll send an email your way with the cover and instructions no later than the 24th.
So yes. *shoos you away toward the sign up* I can't wait to share this with you guys!

  1. I don't usually do cover reveals for books I haven't read . . . I actually I don't even do it for books I have read unless my own count. ;) But I'm looking forward to seeing this cover and reading your new book. :D
