Exciting News!

I'm thrilled to announce that I am joining
the Seriously Write blog team.
Our mission is to encourage and equip Christian writers along their writing journey.

What an honor and privilege it will be to work with talented writers
Annette Irby, Ocieanna Fleiss, Dawn Kinzer, and Angie Arndt.

Beginning October 1, I will assume responsibility for This-n-That Thursdays.
No worries, though. I'll still post here at 
Heart racing, God-gracing Romance.



This is one of the crossroads I alluded to on Monday.
I admit I wasn't this enthusiastic when first presented with the invitation. I might have even groaned. You see, I write slow, and the prospect of writing a weekly blog post terrifies me. It's a commitment, another priority, in an already packed calendar.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 
1 Thess 5:11 NIV

How could I refuse the sweet ladies who encourage me so much on a daily basis? 
Where would I be if other writers hadn't offered their instruction and support along my journey? 
God loves to present His children with perfect gifts. It didn't take long for me to realize this was one of them. Tucked inside the beautifully wrapped package ~ 
four precious friends and a blog.

What about you?
Do you wrestle with decisions you already know the answer?
How do you handle adding another commitment to your already bulging calendar?

Thank you for sharing in my exciting news!

Ditto to everything Angie said. We're thrilled to have you! The four of us were in agreement that it was the right time to add another person to the team--and we were in agreement that you were the right choice.

God must have exciting things planned!

Angie, where would I be without your precious friendship?? Love you!

Sandy, I need a McD shake BAD! Scrambling through my calendar to find a date...

Dawn, I'm always amazed at God's goodness in bringing us to the point to join Him, where He's been working behind the scenes all along.

Annette, thanks! I am, too!
