My Best Book Review

Sometimes we don’t know why we are meant to write what we do; we hope we have a positive impact. A couple of months after publishing my book, I received a letter. A neighbor of mine had bought my book and then shared it with a friend of hers. My neighbor’s friend had lost a child and one of her grandchildren. This letter she wrote had such a profound effect on me. Her words alone made the book worth writing. I opened the letter with my husband, and I was crying so hard I couldn’t finish reading it. He completed reading the letter, but by the time he had finished, he was crying as well.

I share this with you, my fellow bloggers whom I love and consider my friends. I am guessing many of you have had similar experiences.

The purpose of this post is to reassure artists that we never know how we may touch the life of another in a very positive way.

  1. Oh WOWWWWW, Joni–what a beautiful affirmation of the work God put in your hands to do. I’m blessed…and now, personally encouraged, because last November I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) on a “dare” from the Lord. I completed the 50,000 word challenge…but the book is unfinished. It’s a Christian mystery, faith-journey…and maybe God is waiting on me to get ‘er done πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for sharing!!! HUGE Blessings to you!

      1. Thank you so much for the extra encouragement, Joni. Other than blog poems, I’m kind of in a hiatus regarding the novel right now–but I WILL get back to my book…assisted by my fabulous writing partner, God!! Have a blessed Sabbath–rest up!πŸ’•
