Hey Gritty Guys and Gals!
I'm taking this week as an opportunity to check on YOU!
When was the last time somebody asked you what you thought, and actually held still long enough to hear the answer? As I gear up for a fabulous few days away at an upcoming writer's conference, I'm filled with gratitude for the past year a half that I've spent talking with all of you. I'm reminded that YOUR voices are the ones that drive me to keep writing.
You might remember that I've been working on a book proposal for the body image and faith project. I want to shout to the moon that it's time for me to turn it in! I'm thrilled, nervous, and I'm under the gun to finish up final edits. As I reflect on all of the effort that's gone into it, I know without a doubt that...
...exactly NONE of it matters unless I'm serving and encouraging all of you.
For that reason, I'd like to ask for a minute of your time. Literally, 60 seconds! I've attached a survey below and would be honored if you'd take a moment to let me know how your experience has been here at the Gritty Pearl.
With you and for you,
I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus. I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people. Philemon 1:4-7
