>When Holley Gerth, Senior Editorial Designer and Writer for Day Spring invited me to join her and more than twenty other amazing women for a new project called (in) courage, I froze with shock…and a little bit of fear. I could not erase a single word question from my mind. Now?
Had the offer come several months earlier excitement would have trumped doubt, but chaos and uncertainty loomed the day I received Holley’s e-mail. The Professor‘s contract was not renewed at the end of the semester and very few job prospects were present. A move (and most likely an out-of-state move) was inevitable. And I was in the middle of a personal writing slump.
I wanted to say yes and I wanted to say no. So, I said maybe. And I prayed. And prayed. And prayed. After a few weeks of praying, I knew that I needed to accept the offer to join the (in) courage team. I think you’ll understand more about why after the site officially launches on August 10th.
This week, the team of women I mentioned earlier is being unveiled one woman at a time. Some of you may be visiting me today because of Mary’s link at Giving Up On Perfect. If you are not a regular reader of Mary’s blog and enjoy a refreshingly honest writing style from a woman who desires more of God, then please head on over to her site. You will be blessed.
Another member of the (in) courage team is someone whom I wish was with me right now as I unpack boxes and settle into my new home in Ohio.
