It’s official! Girlfriends, God, and Grace: How to Have a Great Girlfriend Adventure is accepted.
Good is great! I've been writing for 10 years and this book was one of the most difficult things I've ever written. It was hard, but I loved it. I loved the parts This book is my pinkie promise. Over five years ago the Lord put me on this journey — and it's been one wild girlfriend adventure. I've linked pinkie fingers with these women and promised to friends. I'd like to tell you that I've kept my pinkie promise, but that wouldn't be true. I just wish I'd kept it. But God is good and he allows us do-overs.
I've learned so much along the way. I've learned to love with open hands and I've learned that the Lord is ALL that I need. He is my all. It's in Him that I find hope. A hope that fills me a joy that is impossible to contain.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
That's what I so desire — to overflow with Hope! I only need Him — He is my everything. That is the desire of my heart.
As I enter this next phase with the book, this incredible girlfriend adventure, and my wild life, I'm holding on to the pinkie promises. I hold on to those promises as I stretch out my hand to link pinkies with the new women God is putting in my life — amazing women. God's chosen ones. Precious every single one.
I'm looking forward to the adventures to come and the girlfriends I've yet to meet. I pray that the Lord gives me the wisdom needed to share His love and joy with all.

I am so happy for you! I know this book was a labor (the long enduring kind) of love for you. Congrats and I can’t wait to read it.
Congratulations Mary! How exciting!! I can hardly wait to get my hands on a copy, when will it be available?
Your book sounds great. I’m going to have to read your old posts to find out who your publisher is. I just finished a proposal for a girly Bible study. I love this kind of thing.
I’m so excited for you! I can’t wait to read it :-)!!!
