Pre-Order Walking with the Women of the Old Testament!

I have so neglected this blog the last year. The little widget on the sidebar tells me that I have only posted three--- THREE--- posts on here in 2017. One of the big reasons for that silence is that for the last year this project has taken a huge part of my time, my creativity and my heart.

I am so pleased to announce that Walking with the Women of the Old Testament has an official launch date of November 15th and is now available for pre-order! Last time Walking with the Women of the New Testament sold out really quickly at Christmas time and people had to wait until March to get copies! So if you want a copy or would like to give it out a gift make sure you put in your order soon! 

This book has really been such an incredible--- and difficult--- project. The Old Testament is MUCH harder to understand and write about  (and there are way more women in it ) than any of the other books of scripture. Writing about such a diverse group of women taxed my skills as a writer and a storyteller. But it does help that the women in the Old Testament are my favorite. Their stories are the oldest stories about women in the world and they have so much to teach us about who we are and what we are meant to do here on this earth. The process of writing about these women and really grappling with their stories taught me some incredible things, and I am so excited to share them with you. 

If you have missed my voice then I hope you will take the time to order my book, because it is where I have poured my heart and soul into the last year and half. I hope as you read it you will have some of the same "ah ha" moments I had, and deepen your love for yourself and for all women of God! Not to mention that Mandy Jane William's pictures are even more incredible than the ones she did for the New Testament book. They are incredible!  

You can pre-order the book on Amazon right now (and it is 20% off) and it will be available at Deseret Book and other LDS booksellers very soon! 

PS. If you want a sneak peek into what is in the book you can listen to the interview I did about Old Testament women with LDS Perspectives.
