Four years and three months. That is the time it took to write, edit and self publish my first book of my memoirs entitled, “Becoming Miriam: A Life Transformed by God.” And today, I received my first copies hot off the press, bringing tears to my eyes! It really was a miracle how God provided for me to write this book.
If you follow my blog, you know this was a dream for me to write a book, and the Lord gave me the go ahead to write my life story, to bring healing to myself and others. He provided for me to go three years in a row to a great writers conference nearby my home. He brought renowned authors to teach me and walk alongside me in my writing journey. Other writers to edit, critique and encourage me. The ability to self publish and do the production myself. All because He cares about the desires of our hearts.
Most of you know the victory this is: after losing my ability to write due to carpel tunnel and injuries to my arms and shoulder; a car accident; then three rounds of melanoma surgeries, all within two years. The devil was busy.
So my publication is sweet and I rejoice in God’s faithfulness. Self publishing wasn’t how i imagined it, that first year at Mt. Hermon Christian Writers Conference, but the Lord knew His plans to give Himself glory.
The Lord instructed me to publish Becoming Miriam as my legacy to my future children and family one day in France. And to share with those I meet along my path who need a healing touch from Jesus.
I imagine you would like to read it, too! However, it is not for sale quite yet.
I am waiting on the Lord’s perfect timing to release the book to the general public. Stay tuned. Only He knows the date! But I wanted to share it with you today, because I know a lot of you have followed my story and even prayed for me to see the book published.
Celebrate with me, as the angels in heaven are, giving God the Glory for bringing His book to fruition!
