Today doesn't feel any different than most other summer Fridays, but today is a special day. More than 2 years ago God started to plant in my heart a desire to write a book. Not just a book to write a book, but a book that I hoped God could use to help people connect with Him in their everyday lives through the practice of journaling. It has been a long two years and I have experienced a lot of excitement and come against some discouragement in the process. There were days I wondered if the book would ever be complete. But God is good and all things happen in His time and today Wide Eyed releases officially!!!!!

So tonight I will celebrate with friends and family what God has done and what we pray He will do through Wide Eyed. It is going to be a good day. :)
