“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”(Jeremiah 29:11)
There has been a change in the publication of The Vision of a Mother’s Heart.
The company who published our book has closed its door and is no longer in business.
This came as a shock to me and to several other “orphaned authors” but nothing takes the Lord by
surprise. Although this door has closed, He will open the door of His choosing. This may be for the best as
I have wanted to reformat the book as an e-book. So this small inconvenience has been a tool to push me forward.
We are still praying and considering our options.
I chose to self publish The Vision of a Mother’s Heart in order to be able to clearly present the Gospel through one of the
characters. There are Christian publishers who do not want to publish anything that seems “preachy”. I can understand their
viewpoint. However, the Lord placed this story inspired by my Grandmother’s childhood on my heart as an opportunity to share the
Good News that Jesus, the perfect, virgin born, sinless Son of God took the form of man and came as a baby with the purpose of
bearing our shame and becoming a sacrifice that we may be saved.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures”
(I Corinthians 15:3-4)
You may ask, “Why did He do this?” The answer is simple. Because He loves you!
“That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that
the world through Him might be saved.”
If you would like to read more about the Gospel presented in The Vision of a Mother’s Heart, check out the archives of this blog for the chapter titled The Lesson. Isabel’s Mama uses laundry to present the Gospel to her children and a few neighbors who happened by and stopped to listen.
Please pray with us for wisdom as we make decisions, for discretion to go with the publisher of His choosing. Mostly pray that this book and the books to follow will be a blessing to others as we share Christ with through Isabel’s story. I would love to have a traditional publisher if that is God’s will. If so, may He place this story, this series on some publisher’s heart.
Many friends have shared with us other self publishing connections and we thank you. It is a matter of prayer and waiting for the door to open. Thank you so much for caring. Each of you has been a blessing!
Don’t worry. I still have a few copies of my novel and Lord willing, it will be available again and also available as an e-book. I have been working on the second book in the series and have written a few chapters for book number three. Until then, I will continue with this blog and hope you will enjoy samples and other bits and pieces of life that I will share with you. Thank you for your patience.
Love you all!
