A few months ago, a book publisher called. They had an idea for a book. And they felt the Lord directing them to call me to see if I might be the guy to write it.
Um, excuse me? Um...you know I barely even read books, right? Um, you know I say 'um' a lot, right? I mean, getting a song out of me is miracle enough. What makes you think you could squeeze even one chapter of a book out of this mountain boy? Seriously, I don't think Dostoevsky ever listed American Idol as one of his hobbies on facebook, if you get my drift. I don't think Chaucer would have counted Galaga as one of the great inventions of the last century. Know what I mean?
Well, the short version of the story is this: I am in the middle of writing this work. I have no idea what I'm doing. But I'm doing it anyway, somehow. And I can't wait to tell you all about it. It's about something of which I am very passionate. And when you hear the title and premise (soon), you will laugh at how God orchestrated the recent great adventures of our lives to fall right smack dab in the middle of writing this book. Sometimes God is subtle. This was not one of those times.
I will tell you more details about it later. But I wanted to share the news with you now because we need prayer. Our crazy life just got a lot crazier. And I would be really grateful if you all would cover my family and me in prayer as I finish writing this book...while moving...and while our travel schedule ramps up for a busy spring. Thank you so much.
I never saw this coming. I never even had the first thought that God would call me to put pen to paper for something like this. But I am so happy to be doing it. I'm excited to tell you more about it soon.
Thanks for your prayers. Gonna go get to work. And then...maybe a quick game of Galaga.
