What Would A Wise Woman Do? Book by Laura Steward Atchinson

I just finished this book. I can't recommend it enough. Talk about taking a plunge off the top of the falls and into deep unknown pools, this is the book that will challenge you as an author, speaker or whatever your dreams and visions are drawing you to jump. 

Do you think these are God inspired moments? You bet I do.

I met Laura at the LA Writer's 101 Conference last March. She among many other leaders was a loving giving person. She was getting tired as my turn came to meet her. The lady was willing to speak with anyone and gave each an autographed copy of her book, What Would A Wise Woman Do? It is a great self-study and self-reflection book for any one wanting to grow.

As she prayed with me, she spoke one word to me...FOCUS! She warned me that is what she felt I needed to hear. Little did she know that an agent I met advised me the same and that there would be a ton of "good" intentions coming my way and I was going to have to make some tough choices.

Guess what? That's exactly what happened and I began to feel so overwhelmed and worried that I caught the flu-bug. Yep, that's right, God wanted my attention. So I stopped everything, took more aspirin, and laid down with this book. This is a good book precious writing friends. God inspired, thank you Laura for your obedience to your creator. :)

Love, Paulette

Prayer Changes Things.

I'm compelled to "wade" out into deeper waters. I may even have to take a plunge of faith off the top of the waterfalls above me. Why?

I've recently learned that running a business is just that, it has to be run by common sense and logic. It can't be run by emotions no matter the circumstances. It was a tough lesson but I'm prepared to take the leap and go forward into new territory. I praise God for it because each new thing I learn, it means I can help others.

This morning, I'm wading into those deep waters of decision and seeking God's help and wisdom. I'm excited, scared, hopeful, and trusting all at the same time. The water feels cool and really, like I'm doing the right things in my writing. I've prayed, sought godly council, and given everything to my King.

May you enjoy this day and your freedom to move forward in Christ into whatever He has called you to do.

Above all, keep praising as you write. Love...from me! :)
