It had been four long years of research and stacking books, papers, memorabilia and photos on a table in the basement office. Every day that I walked by, I felt a heavy guilt settle in around me. You know the kind I mean … like when you’re running through puddles of rain and your tennis shoes suddenly become soaked. You feel completely drenched and soggy. That’s how I was feeling.
I knew that this year’s topic for my ministry, Best Life (bestlifeministries.com) was Renewed. Refreshed. Restored. But somehow, I didn’t think I’d ever feel completely refreshed unless I tackled that mound of work sitting on the table. It was time to dig in and finish the book.
Each and every opportunity I have, I continue to find out more tidbits about the past in regards to our sweet little 1900’s church. People will show up (especially in the summer months) and tell us stories that their grandparents had passed on to them. Or new information about a former pastor will be revealed in some online search.
But I did it. With God’s great help and a gentle push from my inner pushy, self starter personality, I sat down, faced the mound, and got it done.
The book is finished and is in its final faze, headed to the printers and should be ready for sale in about 10 days.
As I wrote, I gathered as many facts and stories about the history of the church that I could find. Then, I added in my own version of the story of the great Farmer Dean and I and how we moved the little building the entire 26 miles over a course of about 2 months (prep was 8 weeks and move was 1 day).
I tracked the emotions, the anxiety, and the incredible faith that we gathered from friends and family as we moved the building to our grove.
I believe that you will find faith, hope, encouragement, inspiration and motivation when you sit down and read my latest book. Farmer Dean and I experienced a lot of emotions purchasing and moving this little building.
And now … five years later … it’s here … the complete story!
