A Blurred Future by Tanya Eavenson



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!



Is there something you’re praying about? Trust in the Lord and He will direct your path.

  2. I loved this post. I think oftentimes I forget that I can go to God for direction not just in the big things but the little things as well. Thanks for this reminder.
