a cover for my story

I'm in one of those seasons of life where God is teaching me so much. Honestly, I'm trying so hard not to miss anything. It's exciting ... and exhausting, if that makes sense. I keep thinking about things I want to share, but then I can't find the words when I sit down at my laptop.

So instead of putting these new messages and lessons into words, I spent Ben's naptime this afternoon on my front porch turnings excerpts from my forthcoming ebook into guest posts for various online friends.

It was good to remember what God has done to me as I recognize what more he wants to do. The lessons on God adopting us, God faithfully orchestrating the details, God valuing life, hearing God in the wilderness, and knowing God has a plan even when we can't see it are ones that carry over to so much of life -- not just infertility and adoption.

{My ebook is going to be released on Oct. 15! More information will be coming about that. Much more, trust me.}

Until then, how about a sneak peek at the cover?

Angie Kimbro, a local graphic designer friend of mine, created this beauty. And I gave her very few ideas with which to work. Honestly, I wasn't sure what I wanted my cover to look like, but I absolutely love how it turned out. Fun side note: Angie was Ben's first teacher at a mother's day out program a couple years ago.

That's where I am right now. A tad weary, but full of hope for what's to come.

What have you been up to? Learning anything worth sharing?

I'm linking up this post with Jen Ferguson's weekly Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood Gathering
