We have had several people asking recently about our book we mentioned we want to write a couple months ago. Well, here is the update… We’re still wanting to do it, and we still feel we are called to do it, but we don’t really know where to start. We’ve been hearing differing opinions about what to do, and we’re still trying to pray through them all and seek God.
One of the things we might end up doing is starting to blog together, specifically about marriage stuff that will eventually roll into the book. I’ve been writing on this specific blog for just over six years, and I’ve always struggled to find the words to describe it to people, because it ends up being a random collection of my life and ministry things. If we were to write only about marriage stuff on a separate blog, maybe that would clean this one up a bit more, and maybe it would help us gather something of a following on that specific topic.
Honestly, we don’t know what we’re doing. Ha! Since this is our first time writing a book, we are still trying to figure it all out. So, if you have any great tips or thoughts, feel free to share them. I’m sure there are many right ways to do this, but right now, it is a bit overwhelming.
Until we do figure it out, we are still planning our the structure of the book in our heads and in writing. We are also reading several other marriage books for guidance in both our own marriage and how to write one ourselves. Currently, we are in the middle of Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. Soon, we plan on reading Married People by Ted Lowe and Doug Fields. Until we begin writing ourselves, we plan on learning as much as we can.
On a side note, I’ve began wondering if there are other things God wants me to spin out into separate blogs and/or books. It’s such an interesting place to be in right now, where I feel like I have some things to share, but at the same time, I feel like I am nothing compared to others.
So, that’s the update. We hope it answers some of your questions, and we especially hope it fuels some of your prayers for us. Thanks!
