BY FAITH...IT'S HERE!!!

byfaithpost

Aaahhh!! Yep, that’s a scream. I’m nervous. I’m scared. But, most of all I’m excited. Praise hands emoji.

So, what Is It?

Friends...it’s my first book, By Faith, and it releases on April 4th...but pre-sales start TODAY!

By Faith is my first book about the exchange of a known journey to one that says, “I don’t know where I’m going, but I trust you, God”. In our own way each of us is on an unknown journey. A journey where only God gives us turn by turn directions on His time.

But, let’s get honest, how many of us struggle with obedience or following directions?  Uh, hands lifted emoji inserted here. Don’t you ever wish sometimes you could get a LIFE road map showing you where to go and a GPS telling you how long before you get there? This girl, too!

Then By Faith was created for you!

By Faith looks at the journey of Abraham and how we, too, can live a life of obedience that requires loving our enemies (yeah, that), sharing the gospel, forgiving those who hurt us (oh, we are so going there), and battling that ugly word, sin.

My goal with By Faith is to have you follow wherever God leads you. Believe whatever God promises you. Trust wherever God tests you and share however God blesses you.  If I don’t do that, then I fail, that’s how much I believe in this book!

Ready to pre-order?

We have it ALL on one fantastic page! What do you mean, Michelle, ALL?

Well, we are a going out of the box and offering five different levels of pre-order goodies (like, I’m talking stuff that goes above and beyond fun!).

It’s explained better on the one page we created for you at:

My heart

Y’all, I sure would love your prayers. Pray that it gets into the hands that God has it written for.  Pray for lives to be impacted through these words and that every person would follow, believe, and trust Him in the journey.

I Need You! Launch Friends (Only 10 Spots Left!)

launchteam
launchteam

It's almost here! ONE MORE WEEK and we will be able to preorder my first book!

AND...we will begin registration for my online devotional on Facebook and YouTube, too! Nervous....

But I couldn't do any of this without an incredible team of 100 friends (ONLY 10 SPOTS LEFT!!) to help spread the word. Here are the kind of friends I'm looking for:

  • Someone who loves the WORD.
  • Someone who loves the internet and may be a tad addicted to social media.
  • Someone who can write a review on the By Faith book page and Goodreads.com.
  • Someone that has never done a book launch or has done 99 of them.

Here's what doesn't matter:

  • Your age! I don't care if you are 18 or 80, we all need the Word.
  • Your numbers! Those pesky social media followers. You don't need to have 100,000 Facebook followers.
  • Your location! The beauty is doing this from the comfort of your home.

As a By Faith Launch Friend you will get:

  1. A free, electronic copy of the book in advance of the launch date, April 4th. (PDF)
  2. A private Facebook group with me and 100 of our closest friends and get access to behind the scenes surprises and gifts.
  3. A free online bible study of By Faith. For 20 days you’ll receive a short video of me teaching through this study series (dare I say, scared and nervous about this one!)
  4. Other fun things because it just wouldn't be a party without friends!

I can't wait to share my heart with you about this book. Telling you how hard this was wouldn't do justice. Writing it was tough, but walking through it was probably one of the hardest things I've done.  It makes me hopeful of the lives and circumstances that will change through it!

10 SPOTS LEFT!! Hurry and fill out the application now until March 14th.

Something I Haven't Done In A While

Tonight begins something I haven’t done in awhile. It’s time.

I’ll be teaching a new Life Group at our church using Jennie Allen’s curriculum from Restless the first 8 weeks and then the last 4 weeks will be doing something I myself am excited and nervous about. In those last 4 weeks, I really feel like God is wanting to take these ladies on a journey of finding themselves in who they are called to be and begin taking steps in that direction. My prayer is that God would use me to mentor and coach these women as they begin to weave the threads they find along their journeys.

Two things that make me nervous, who am I to help them when I don’t even have my own life figured out and making myself vulnerable! I can tell you what I've dreamed, what I envision for my life, but I hesitate like others not feeling adequate enough, qualified enough, or even worthy. Yet, I don’t think we truly ever figure this thing called “life” out. We may never understand why we live in the neighborhood we live in or the place of work we go to every week. We may never understand why we get sick or why the finances seem to fall short at times. But, I know that if I ask God to order my steps, if I allow Him to be Lord over my life, He will put me in places I never thought of or imagined. He will have me sitting across breakfast tables hearing women that are struggling in their marriage wondering what to do next or talking on the phone to someone with tears in their voice that says, “I can’t take it anymore”.

I’m not going to pretend to have all the answers because I don’t. I look at myself and see imperfection just like others. I find myself staying more humble these days as it seems my voice has been taken to those that need encouragement, empowerment and hope - one person at a time.

I need you to do something for me friends.

I need you to pray for these women.

Some I know, some I've never met before. Pray that God will begin to show them His palm print in each of them. That they would allow the Holy Spirit to guide and direct their paths each week. That these women would become more than they ever imagined going out before they came in.

Lastly, pray for me.

Pray that every word, every syllable, would point to Christ. That God would freely take over each meeting as He sees fit. Pray that He gives me an ear to hear, a mind to perceive and a heart to believe in His word and in these women.

Love you BIG!
