Word after word, content grows.
Each day, writers post thoughts about their favourite topics. They communicate with readers and other writers. Comment streams become more lengthy than the posts themselves.
These are books in the making. Eventually blogs become books.
I have a couple of projects in the works.
The first, is actually an ebook that I mentioned last week titled, “Lead Well: A 30 Day Journey In Biblical Leadership“.
Leadership is something that I believe God has called me to. (See my Leading page for more info.) I’m not saying that I’m perfect at it by any means, but I have learned a lot over the past 10+ years.
Many of these lessons ended up on my blog and in my ebook. I decided to write it into a daily devotional style, matching a key Scripture with each leadership lesson.

I’m still looking for some test readers. Since it is my first book, I need some feedback before its officially released.

My second project has been just that, a project.
I have written and re-written paragraphs and pages more times than I can count.
The book is meant to be an account of my 4 years in Alaska. The first working title was “Quiet Mornings: What I Learned About Life and Leadership in the Last Frontier“. Then it changed to “Quiet Mornings: Ministry In Small Community“.
Recently, I rejected the idea of Quiet Mornings, which actually came out of my first blog, QuietMorningsWithHim.com. Really, it had very little to do with the greater story of the book.
The new working title, is “North: What Small Town Alaska Taught Me About Life and Ministry“. Coming soon to a book store near you. Maybe this decade. Maybe this century. Ugh.
Writing is a labour of love.
There are moments, when ideas are flowing so quickly that your fingertips can’t keep up with your thoughts. Then there’s painful moments where you swear you’ve hit the delete button more times than any other key.
Overall though, we love it. It’s a revitalising hobby that keeps our brains sharp, so we keep doing it.
Click on my Writing page to find out more about my journey in writing. For fellow writers, perhaps I could feature some of your work through a guest post in the coming months.
Keep writing. Keep blogging. Soon enough, you’ll discover a book hidden within those posts.
