NEWS: Recent articles, Speaking Invitations, Podcasts, and a Book Contract

 
Hello, dear ones!
 
I hope you are doing well and enjoying the many blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
 

Isn’t God great? 🙂

 
 
He certainly has been good to me. Here is an update on all that’s been going on… and there’s lots!
 
 

Recent Articles and Guest Posts

God has blessed me with opportunities to write for various magazines and blogs. Here is a list of my recent articles. I hope you’ll check them out:
 
 
 
“You are Welcome Here”

“Gentle on the Hair”

“My Drastic Estate”

 
 
 

Speaking Invitations

Several weeks ago, the Celebrate Recovery Pastor at Bell Shoals Baptist Church (BSBC) in Brandon, Florida, invited me to speak at their Celebrate Recovery program. I was so honored by their invitation to share my testimony with them. They have a great group of participants–so welcoming and transparent. I felt very much at home! I hope and trust that my story–God’s story in my life–helped even one person in the room. A very special thank you to all who came out to support me.

 
 
 

Podcasts

I will be podcasting soon! I’ll send you more information about it as the date gets closer. I plan to record some posts, as well as interview others and provide you with other tools to comfort–and empower–you on your journey. I can’t wait.
 
 
 
and last, but certainly not least…
 
 
 

Book Contract

You might know I’ve been wanting to write a book for some time now. I’ve had articles included in anthologies alongside great writers, for which I’m grateful. From the time God placed the desire in my heart to write a book, I’ve known what I wanted to write about. After working some time on a book proposal this year–and I mean, for some time, I finally sent it out. I was surprised, to say the least, to hear from them so soon, but elated with their response:
 

This is exactly the kind of manuscripts that we are looking to get into our lineup and market. There are so many women that could benefit from this, and we are 100% on board.
 

 
 

Isn’t God great? 🙂

 
 
 
I am beyond ecstatic about this. In the days before I heard back from them, I prayed to God and told him I turned it all over to Him. If it wasn’t His plan, to close the door. If it was His plan, to make it obvious and to work it all out for me in such a way that I–and everyone–would know that only God could pull it off. He has! My heart rejoices with the Love of my Father.
 
 
So… You’re probably wondering the type of book. For now, I’ll just say that it’s an inspirational book for hurting women. God willing, I plan to have the book ready by year-end. I know that’s soon, but if it’s God’s will, He will make a way. If not, then we’ll plan for next year.
 
 

Isn’t God great? 🙂

 
 
I want to thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. I appreciate your emails, your “likes,” comments, forwards, tweets, stumbles, and all your interactions–not only with me but with each other. God keeps showing me, especially on those days I question myself, that I’m on the right path. So, thank you!
 
Please let me know how I can pray for you. I want to join with you for those things that weigh heavily on your heart.
 
 
 
Many blessings and hugs,
Daphne

  • Daphne, I have been “waiting” to hear this good news from you.

    How busy you are and how much you have contributed in this arena of your life experiences.

    I can well understand a publisher jumping at the opportunity to publish you. It makes not only the years of your life experiences – the really tough ones – and the hours/weeks? put into that book proposal well worth the efforts.

    A book proposal often takes longer than the book to write! But now you have your guidelines and can work from them. AMEN.

    Prayers as you move into the writing of the book – may God’s words flow through your fingertips.

    Hugs – Lynn

      Aww, thank you, Lynn. As you can see, I’m behind on answering my reader comments.

      I pray every day that what I write is exactly what God wants me to write. Help me to be discerning, Lord.

      Hugs, my friend.

  • You’re going to be very busy! Can’t wait to hear the podcast and read the book. Prayers for all your efforts.

      Thank you so much for all your prayers. Summer has been rough with the kiddos home, but I’m plugging along. Little by little. 😉

      Hugs,
      Daphne
