And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. – Genesis 2:18, 21-23
Over the years, I’ve kept my eyes open, and I’ve tried to be sensitive to the ways that God might use me. Writing this blog was one of them. God has been able to use me to share my testimony and to encourage women in their marriage.
More recently, He’s called me to be Michael’s help meet in a unique way.
Michael and I took over the ownership of a book bindery in 1995. Soon after, Michael shaped it into a self-pubishing company, “Empowering Writers to Self Publish.” Art Bookbindery publishes, children’s books, family history books, novels, poetry, etc.
For the most part, Michael’s been working with the company, while I’ve devoted my time to writing and blogging. That changed a few weeks ago when Michael expressed his need for a social media manager.
Everything about the position had my my name written all over it. He wanted someone who knew the ins and outs of publishing, someone who could keep up a blog, someone who could promote the blog well, and someone who was affordable.
Without a doubt, I knew that someone was me. Affordable? How about free?! *smile*
The question remained, where does this leave Time-Warp Wife? And what about daily marriage prayers? How can I possibly do it all, and do it all well?
And so I prayed. If anyone knows how to figure all of this out, it’s God. (Please pray for me too, as I step into this new world of blogging).
It might sound like my plate is overflowing, but my children are all in their teen years (oops – one is 23!) which makes things much easier for us. Because blogging is flexible, I’m able to put it aside to spend time with them when I want, which is pretty cool.
I’d like to invite you to visit my new website PublishingInfo.net, where I share the latest book promotion, writing, publishing, and social media tips. I’ll also be holding some contests for fun. Woohoo!!
If you know of anyone looking to publish a book or is putting together a family history, send them our way, and if you’re a writer/blogger, you’ll definitely want to subscribe so you don’t miss out on the secrets I share.
