Those who know me well, know that I am not much of a reader. That said, I am intentionally reading more especially given that I am a budding author. What author doesn't read? Last July I set out to read The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. The book was given to me several years ago by my grandparents, but it landed where all books land - on the shelf of forgottenness. At the same time I signed up for a Kingdom Writer's Conference in San Diego, and Paul Young was one of the speakers. Made sense to read the book; I am so glad I did! In case you are living under a rock, or just choosing not to be connected to the world right now, The Shack is big news because the movie version released this past weekend. And the movie is just as controversial as the book.
Power. Emotion. Truth. Humor. Freedom. Love. I could list words forever in answer to the question, "What's in a song?" Over the course of my 39-year life, I have come to appreciate the significance of music. Whether music is to entertain, move, tell a story, or express that perfect emotion the point is music matters. Music matters to me. Without a doubt, there are certain songs that have more meaning and represent various aspects of my life. My desire is to share some of the songs that have impacted me then, now, and forever.
God has given me a gift in Discovering Me. He is providing me a rare opportunity to tell my story so it can be used for His glory. But if I continue to bury the story in the ground out of fear, I risk losing it. I risk losing a chance to help other women understand how valuable they are just the way they are.
