Why? Well, we’re excited to announce the smoke has been rising from our laptops ever since we received a book contract to send Mothering From Scratch to bookshelves!
We are beyond thrilled at this opportunity! For me (Melinda), this is something I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl devouring Little House on the Prairie books and fantasizing about becoming another Laura Ingalls Wilder. I (Kathy) have long wanted to provide resources for mothers that would support them in a way I so desperately needed as a young mommy.
God has clearly led this journey every step of the way — opening doors and putting people in our paths in a way we could have never arranged ourselves.
The book really is a labor of love — driven by our passion for loving on, encouraging and equipping women in the highly undervalued role of mom.
Motherhood rocks! The work moms do impacts our world more than any other job on earth. If that’s not worth supporting and celebrating, we don’t know what is!
So when will our book be cooked?
Mothering From Scratch: Creating Your Own Unique Recipe for Motherhood (tenatively titled) will be released by Bethany House Publishers in September 2014.
It’s our hope and prayer that the final product leaves your heart full.
