This is my Platform Launch Team friend, Dayna. Isn’t she lovely? She’s lovely and kind and compassionate… and her little corner of the blogging world is my first stop on the virtual book tour.
I’m hanging out with her today at her place, discussing The Secret of Counting Gifts and how God answered my very specific prayer….
I sat with 4000 other women. She stood and spoke. She spoke with sincerity and authority…. authority that comes from first-hand experience. She spoke of her childhood in Africa. She called herself, “the poorest of the poor.” She came to the conference to represent Compassion International. She had been a sponsored child herself. I’ve not forgotten her beautiful ebony skin and the way she sang “His Eye Is On The Sparrow.”
I came home from that conference changed. I shared Lois’s story with my family. We prayed and hoped that through writing and selling a novel our family could reach children around the world who need food, education, medicine, and Jesus….
Dayna and I would love it if you stopped by and joined us for the rest of the conversation at A Year In the Spiritual Life…
