The hardest part of writing is promotion, which is weird, because the whole point of writing is so someone else can read it. Do you know how weird it is to say, “Hey, buy my book?”
But I am a part of a book. A dream I have cultivated for years actually happening. It’s incredible. It is awesome. Someone besides my husband and critique partners will read my words.
People who aren’t a part of my church will hear my story.
And my hope above all of it is, that some women out there will hear my story and feel the weight of guilt drop off her shoulders so she can wrap her arms around her family without the burden of self-doubt.
Today I am not ashamed to promote, because if you buy this book, you support my writing, the writing of 59 other writers and bloggers, but most important, a mission in Kenya that brings new life to young women who in their short years have experienced a lifetime of pain.
So when I ask you to buy this book, I am asking you to bring hope to the women of Mercy House. Who are making beauty from ashes. Women who want to change their family tree.
It’s not just what you can do for these women, but also for the women who poured out their hearts on the pages of this book. No woman’s story is the same. We all look different, parent different, and face different challenges. Regardless, we said yes, when someone asked us to share our story.
We did it to change lives.
All proceeds from book sales go to Mercy House Kenya to purchase a well. The goal is to raise $40,000 dollars. The book is only in e-book format in order to ensure ALL funds go to Mercy House. Thank you for your support!
