Good news - I'm working on my next book idea! And more good news … I'd love to have your opinion! Below is some info on what I'm thinking about. This would be a book similar in format to Wrestling with Wonder (except about Sarah instead of Mary). So, can you let me know if you think this book would be one that would speak to the deep places in your life and encourage you in your own journey?
Okay, here's what I have so far for a description and concept … let me know if you like it!
WAITING for WONDER
A Transformational Journey through the Life of Sarah
WHAT IS IT?:
A unique, contemplative journey through the life of Sarah, Abraham’s wife, to reveal the wonder of a God who does not work according to our timetable.
CONCEPT:After 20 years of infertility, Marlo often says she should have a PhD in the art of waiting. Now, she brings her experience to the story of the Bible's Sarah in order to explore the wonder of waiting for those who find themselves on a long journey toward the promised land.
Because God’s timing is so rarely our own...
Because we lose the wonder in the waiting of life ...
Because Sarah shows us God -- Determined, breath-taking, and beyond all our plans...
Who is this God? For us, like Sarah, following God’s call isn’t about a life of ease, of every-prayer-answered when we want, or easy faith. It’s about His tireless commitment to “bless the whole world” through us. It’s about being a part of God’s-Promise-Come-True when it seems like all hope is long dead and gone. It’s about discovering a God who asks “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” and always has the last laugh.
Sarah’s story illuminates all of our stories because it shows us the depth and purposes of a God who does not act in our timing but in His own. By traveling with her through the pages of this book, readers will find their perspective transformed from discouragement to hope, from frustration to deep joy. By Waiting for Wonder, they will find a God who takes their breath away ... even, and especially, in those moments when He seems to be taking too long.
