You’re invited to celebrate the one-year birthday of my debut novel Leaving Oxford! This year has been a great journey and I want to give back by offering the eBook for free on Kindle April 15-19!
For seven years I wanted to write a story to encourage other prodigals, like me, and those with an anxiety disorder, like myself. Finally, I put the idea to paper, then for four more long years, I edited the story. One year ago, that dream came to fruition with God’s help and with the help of many other friends that He put into my life.
The scripture theme for this series is from Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
I believe He does take our ashes and create something more beautiful, and that’s my hope for each person this story reaches. The heroine suffers from severe anxiety and learns to accept herself and her place in the kingdom.
I’m certainly ashamed that I was a prodigal, and I’d rather not have anxiety, but in God’s hands, my mess can become something beautiful. I hope you will trust Him to do the same for you.
