I can’t begin to tell you all how thankful I am for all the support and kindness I’ve received in celebrating the release of The Engagement Plot!! From sharing about it on Facebook/Twitter, blogging, reviews, to many who actually went to a bookstore and purchased the book and snapped a picture to let me know, I’m seriously in tears.

I know I’m supposed to be this confident author who totally trusts Jesus and doesn’t fret at all, but book releases are usually riddled with fears and anxiety and lots of deep breathing exercises for me. How is THAT for being real.

But God has calmed my heart this go around and reminded me daily to trust in Him. And while I have definitely had my moments, between all the amazing support I’ve received and an assurance by God that he will put this fun story that glorifies him into the hands of those he wills, I am at such peace and know that God is using this book exactly how he wants to.

So thank you so much for being part of that for me.
