My Books Have Arrived!!!

Growing-Up-As-A-Missionary-KidWooohooo!!¬† I officially have my Growing Up as a Missionary Kid books in print. After writing this book almost a year ago, I hold it in my hands at long last!! Oh, yeah… Oh, yeah… (insert happy dance)

On this momentous occasion, I interviewed my husband, “How do you feel now that you are married to a real author?”

“Oh, my life has totally changed. It’s completely different,” he said, rolling his eyes.

This is how the book came into being:

Before I ever started a blog, I decided to stockpile blog entries. One topic I wanted to write about was what it was like to grow up as a missionary kid. As I wrote one blog post after another, I felt so much joy. I ended up with 34 blog posts about growing up as a missionary kid. I had accidentally written a book! I never published the chapters on my blog, except for a set of 10 of them, so that people could get to know me. From the time I wrote the book to the time it was published, an entire year transpired. It went through four editors, all volunteering because they loved me. I spent more time revising and editing the book that I did writing it! And God opened doors for me to find affordable printing.

I dedicated the book to God and decided to give 100% of the profit to missions. What an appropriate book to raise money for missions!

You can buy the electronic version or the print version of the book¬† Growing Up as a Missionary Kid on my website. If you haven’t seen my new Facebook page for this book, check it out here. I post regularly about missionary kids.
