Hi, guys! Here’s my video update from Friday, January 7, 2022.

If you don’t want to watch, here’s the gist. =) This year I have goals of increasing my writing time, my reading/studying time, and my prayer time.

This week I wrote just under 4,000 words in Yesterday’s Tides, the next book due to my publisher. It’s due on February 15, and I’m just under 19,000 words into the manuscript, which means I have a LOT of work to do in the next month + a week!

Next week I’m hoping to dedicate several full days or all half days (still have to decide) to writing and get about 20,000 words written. I appreciate your prayers on that!

This week of course I also released a book, To Treasure an Heiress, yay!! And built out Patrons & Peers, which took quite a bit of time.

On the personal side, I’ve started a Bible in a Year (been a while since I’ve done that), and am also setting aside time each day for personal prayer (which has always been a challenge for me, though we do daily family prayer time both morning and night). And our family left our old church in the fall and went to a new one, which means membership classes there that also take up our time but which was been SO BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING.

That’s pretty much it this week. =) Do feel free to share your goals and updates and passions, either in the Marco Polo app via video, or even just comments here!
