Moon Over My Shoulder

Never have I considered myself a "writer", but more of a "journal-er", encourager and observer of life.  However, on the first page of my first journal written forty years ago, "I think I need to write a book" startled me; I had not realized how long God had me in training for this feat.

Fear and insecurity  had bound my heart, making this book impossible, until God loosened my fears through his gentle healing,  enough to hear him speak the title of it in a gentle whisper. "Moon Over My Shoulder" was birthed that evening, as an  expression of His love and encouragement.

The book, in the form of a daily devotional, is now complete and awaiting editing, design, publication, and distribution.  A website with a blog will have to be set up, and marketing established. This is where your help is needed. The cost of publishing is vastly beyond my income, as a widow who has endured many hardships in the past year. My God is so good, and he has met every need beyond my expectation, as I am quite certain he will do again, even with this book.

God is famed for using broken and fragile vessels. I have been shaped and formed to quietly share encouragement with other broken vessels, to turn their hope to Jesus. Through insights into his character and love, each page is an invitation to know him, love him, and receive his grace. But each page is also a bit unexpectedly entertaining, I am told.

My prayer is, that through this book, Jesus will become the "Moon Over My Shoulder" for you, as well. I pray that you will recognize his presence and love as I share the quirky parables of my life, one day at a time. As you support my effort, I ask that you share its message of hope with many people, who will also gain encouragement from it. 

Thank you to all who have nudged me forward, some with a gentle hand, others with a blunt kick in the pants! God's timing and hand was evident in both. Thank you for your support, past and present, in seeing "Moon Over My Shoulder" to on to publishing and placing it into your hands!
