I had no idea what I was doing. Sitting in the middle of a laundry pile and grasping for Jesus, I broke. All of it came pouring out of me. Every fear. Every frustration. Every last bit of me along with the fight I’d been waging with myself.
I let it all go in one final exhale.
And then I wrote about it.
“I said it out loud. I raised my little white flag and said, “I am not amazing. I am not fine.” I started writing right where I was. It wasn’t pretty. In fact it was kind of messy. And in the middle of the mess I did not see critical Carol. I saw a loving God who wanted to meet me in the middle of it all.”
Hope for the Weary Mom, p 45-46.
Three years ago God whispered hope in midst of the very daily and extremely mundane life of this weary mom. What he has done with that message since then has been nothing short of jaw dropping. Not just because thousands of moms all over the world have responded to the message. But the fact that he is still wooing me with the same hope. He doesn’t ever stop wrapping his arms around me and telling me I don’t have to be amazing. He has that covered already. He is relentless in his pursuit of me with one message: Hope is here.
On February 3 the newest version of a book birthed in a laundry pile is releasing. I have to tell you three things about it:
- 4 chapters were missing from the last book. We have found them and placed them where they belong in the new version.
- There are at least 20,000 new words of hope in it you have not read.
- I cry every time I read it.
There is something about this book. My friend and fellow weary mom writer Brooke said it like this:
“Picking up the new Hope for the Weary Mom will be like having coffee with an old friend you haven’t seen in a few years. Some stories will be familiar and leave you thinking, “I remember that about her.” Others, because of space and time, will be brand new. You’ll see a maturity in her that’s come from living a full life in pursuit of Jesus, and leave filled to overflowing with a renewed hope in the God who meets you in the mess.”
She is brand new. She is Hope all grown up.
You can order it today, and it will probably get to your house before the official launch date. Don’t ask me how that works, it just does.
And one more thing. Brooke and I have a few letters we would love to drop in our email box about finding hope in the mess. These letters are free and will arrive starting January 26 and the every day that week. You can sign up right here.
