Well, thank God that’s over! 2012 was one of the most difficult years I’ve had in my life and in truth, I’m surprised I was able to accomplish anything with all of the chaos that surrounded me for most of the year. But, with God’s help, I finished a degree in Religion and my sixth book in the Rona Shively Stories series. So, there was some productivity tucked in there, though it was often difficult to discern from the outside. In any case, I’m looking forward to 2013 and I’ve already got several ideas for projects I’d like to finish by this time next year. With the release of Thy Will Be Done just around the corner, I’m already working on the next Rona book and I’m loving this storyline already. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Rona has some exciting things happening in Thy Will Be Done and the fun won’t stop there. I’m also working on a couple of other writing projects that I’m not yet ready to talk about, but will share soon.
One thing I’m going to concentrate more on next year is having more speaking events. I’ve got a great new workshop planned that I’m hoping to launch after the first of the year. I’ll be approaching libraries to see who would like to host a workshop, so keep watching for upcoming events! Aside from that, I still want to find more ways to help women overcome barriers to personal growth. I’ll be looking for opportunities to work with women to help them achieve success and all proceeds from the Rona Shively books go toward Higher Ground Ministries efforts to promote women’s empowerment. More information about the activities planned for Higher Ground will be posted on the Higher Ground website later this week.
I sincerely appreciate those of you who support me in these efforts and those who actually enjoy reading the Rona Shively series. She’s still got a few adventures to experience and I’m hoping you enjoy every one of them. If you’re out tonight, please be safe and have a Happy New Year. May 2013 bring you many blessings and a spirit of peace and abundance. God bless!
Until next time…
