I starting the process of getting the news out about the book. Networking with pastors and people in ministry and telling friends and acquaintances along the way. I am making loose plans to travel, request opportunities to speak and come up with a general strategy for promoting the book.

It is a weird transition from writer to promoter. I wasn’t use to having authorship as part of my identity yet. I was a counselor, a teacher, a speaker. Then I had to put author in the mix. Now I have to sell that part of me. I am afraid of the process of getting the book out there. It is a bit embarrassing. But I push through it when I talk to those who know me and experienced the ministry I do. My strategy is to get those people to tell those others who I don’t know about me and Resisting Grace. Many believe in me and support me. For that, I am grateful.

I am particularly afraid of losing track of the various administering of networking and keeping accounts. It’s not my strength. I get more anxious sitting down and keeping accounts then I do sitting with someone struggling with anger or depression. I am afraid of making mistakes. In the past I always wanted to take a nap after trying to balance books or administrate paperwork. God give me grace.

And that is what the rising of fear is calling me to, a quest of grace. Seek first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness and all these things will be added onto you. I believe it and right now cling to the Lord of grace knowing His grace is sufficient, His power made perfect in my weakness.

I wanted to know His power in my life. So here I stand.
