I have allowed a handful of people read my manuscript, with a few of them helping with edits. (Kathy, Dr. John, Gary, and Jennifer) It can be tough to write because I am known to speak Pennsyl-Tuckian. (A mix between Pennsylvania and Kentucky speaking) I have appreciated the edits and am now proceeding to have it professionally edited in order to try to secure an agent. Finding the right editor isn't an easy task, but I truly believe that God has led me to an individual named Linda. She is already praying for my project regardless of whether I select her as my editor.
Your prayers during the editing process are highly coveted. I truly believe that God desires to use my (and your) Custom Scars for His glory and purpose. Next week I will be seeing my geneticist in Pittsburgh along with two other individuals for my checkup as well as to discuss my heart's ministry with Custom Scars. The week after that I will be lecturing nursing students locally about my condition and how living with a health concern doesn't mean that a person is useless. I always look forward to sharing my life story with any and all that will listen. (Of course they get a good dose of Jesus mixed in too)
I am blessed by having so many people supporting me in this venture, especially Amanda. She is such a support to me and walks beside me in my passion to reach people. I couldn't have made it this far without her.
Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray as I take the faith steps forward that I believe God wants our family to be taking. All glory goes to Him as He is in control of my Custom Scars.
