As writers for the Christian market, we need to not only write about people of faith, we need to live like people of faith, seeking God's guidance in our careers. -- Sandy
Tanya: Recently I was asked to share what inspired my new story To Gain a Mommy. It might surprise you, but my inspiration behind this story isn't what most people would think of. It was actually a prayer.
Several months ago I was asked to take a great position at the company I work for, but the catch was I'd barely have time for my family. So I prayed. In that prayer I asked God for direction for my family, my job, and my writing.
I love how God knows us.
He KNEW I had a desire to be a part of a boxed set of stories, working with other authors, and to write my first novella because without a push, I wouldn't have done it.
It all began by a simple post on my FB timeline. Someone posted to say that they had messaged me but wanted to let me know since FB has a couple of message boxes.
I didn't know this! I clicked on messages and there it was, the extra message box, filled. As I read through them, I had a message asking if I'd be interested in joining the boxed set Kisses, Kids and Bundles of Joy.
He answered my prayer! So needless to say, I didn't take the position and through this boxed set, I’ve become an Amazon Bestseller and an International Bestseller in three countries. Isn't God good!
