It was an exciting day today. We shot the cover for my next book, “Then I Will Hope for You.” Thanks to Savannah Silver, photographer extraordinaire, and Sally Batchelor and her sons Luke and James, who were the perfect models. These are not the cover shots, just some fun time together.
We don’t really know the impact of our actions. I was watching a video clip the other day about drilling wells and their impact. Here were some of the words some people from a village used to describe the impacts of a well by their homes:
It’s not only to survive, but to dream.
No longer watch their children slowly die.
As a mother, I cannot even imagine such a life. So blessed. So humbled. Honored to be part of God’s story.
Had a great time at the Authors expo and met some wonderful people! Sold some books and maybe even got the start of a book club! Hope Lives Here is a great read about the organization Casas por Cristo, Guatemala, and building homes and hope. It’s about missions and how missions breaks your heart for those in need.
Hope Lives Here brings hope to those who need it most. Once you build one of these houses for Casas por Cristo, you will see that it’s often those who are serving who are impacted as much as those who are served.
