Why I Want to Write Books

Pic borrowed from www.socialmediamom.com

We got back from the library a few days ago and I got a punch in the gut that has me in a headlock. We get 19 books at a time and my 13yo disappears for two days only to re-emerge and ask what she’s supposed to read now. I was ironing in the room when she came through with her eyes sparkling, “MOM! You have got to get me more of this writer! She is wonderful!” With that, her nose buried itself in the pages and she was gone again.

WHAM! Right there, in the tender spot that I’ve been furiously ignoring for so many months.
I want to write.
I want to write books that make young girls eyes sparkle as I fill their heads with Truth that can shape their destiny.
I want to wield words to gently peel open the hearts that have frozen and plant tiny seeds of Hope.
I want to write.
and be read.
Thats pretty much all there is to it.

  1. Poking my nose in to say I will put this on my list of things to ask Dad every morning. You have wonderful motive and a fertile mind. Opportunities en route, im convinced 🙂 lots more to say, silence best for now. Iwnslymf

  2. And also I suspect it comes from a desire that the Lord gave you. Best I can describe is like and impulse to do something that feels right cause He placed it in you. Like when we dance, it feels right and fits right.

    1. Laura! How nice to meet you. I’m slowly settling in and hoping to get writing again within the next few days. I’m going to pop over to your side and see what you’re up to. 🙂
