“Praise be to God. Ya know, that famous quote that says we are not afraid of failure but of just how great we really are?! That is soooooo true. As I sat writing simply the opening notes to my book, even I was shocked at my eloquence. I say this not in arrogance but in awe and wonder of how great God is. The gift of writing and the arts is not mine but the Lord’s bestowed upon me for the furtherance of His kingdom. Best believe when God does something, He does it well. I’m just so honored that He decides to work through me, and if you let Him, He will work through you, too.”
