What happened to August?!
I don't know about you, but summer went by way too fast for my liking, but I filled it up with all sorts of fun and memories with all of my favorite people.
I officially graduated homeschool, attended my very first writers conference, met new friends, took senior pictures for my sis, and just plain enjoyed life!
a few Summer Snapshots...
Now, what about the part where I'm getting published?
Last year, I found out about the opportunity to write for a brand new, quarterly devotional for Christian teenagers. It's called Unlocked and is basically the "teen version" of the popular Keys for Kids. They were searching for writers, so I took a leap of faith and submitted a few pieces to the editor.
My work was accepted.
After weeks of pouring my heart into these little devotionals, and weeks more of waiting anxiously for a response, I was literally shaking when I finally got the acceptance email. I'll be honest that, despite hoping my hardest, I was expecting to be rejected.
But God always has bigger plans.
So there you have it.
To make a long story short: I have had an amazing summer, learned so much, and experienced the exhilaration of knowing that a few of my mini devotionals are going to be read by thousands of teenagers just like me.
How about you? What surprises did this summer bring?
I can't wait to hear from you!
Until then, go out and enjoy the sunshine!
