Book update

I haven't talked about my books lately, because I am usually too busy to write my books or my blog. (winks) But, I am feeling confident that I need to move forward with my Christian non-fiction book. I gave it to my dad to edit for me. And, my mother will pre-read it too. Then, I will pray about what step to take next. Paul and I think we have a clear understanding of what to do with the book next, but we want to be completely at peace about this decision.

My fiction novel/series has been untouched for quite some time. I love the deep truths that I slid into the pages. But, sometimes I think the plot is just too cheesy. I need someone else to read it... but I don't want to be laughed at, so I keep sitting on it. It is hard to balance a book that will be enjoyable and get your mind off your own problems (that's what entertainment is, right?) yet it seems realistic. Add to that my boatloads of doctrine tied into the dialogue and you have a rather peculiar book. I think I will keep praying about where to go with this series. My kids love it (it is written for young adult-adult), maybe when I get bored I can write it just for them. They listen to my books a heap better than my lectures! 

I would appreciate your prayers as I try to figure out what steps to take next.
