One of the most wonderful moments in life is the place when all your hard work, dedication, discipline, and goals collide, and suddenly you realize that dreams really do come true. It's a magical kind of feeling, one that makes you so happy you want to dance around in circles, jump up and down, and hug the person next to you. I've been keeping a secret, and it's finally time to announce that...
I wrote my first book with my good friend (and fellow blogger), Jenni Joslyn, and it's going to be available next month! After a year's worth of writing, editing drafts, and putting together the perfect design, it's amazing to say that it's actually a reality. Some time ago I scribbled the goal, "I am a published author", onto a 3x5 card, and kind of forgot about it for a little while. Life happened, and I was focusing my priorities elsewhere. Then, God reminded me of that dream once again, and said, 'it's time', and so the writing process began. When dreams are this big, it takes a team to accomplish it, and I have to say it's been so wonderful to have worked with such an incredible group of people to bring this piece to fruition!
About the Book
Society constantly sends us messages on beauty, relationships, careers, and life choices. With all the pressure on women to live up to media standards, we're left asking, "Can you really have it all?" Join youth mentors and good friends, Candice Henry and Jennifer Joslyn, as they discuss what it means to be young women who follow God's call of leadership in their lives. Candice, a former pageant winner, and Jenni, a former model and actress, know what it's like to live under the expectations of society's standards. They invite you to join the conversation as they share their experiences and secrets to true beauty, finding success, and living a fulfilling life. From Me to You will guide you through a two-week exploration of beauty and body image, careers, relationships, friendships, and other life lessons from a faith-based perspective. Candice and Jenni encourage you to embrace your passion, purpose, and greatness within.
Sharing this with you is a part of living the dream that I've prayed about for so long. I cannot wait for the official release in February, and would absolutely love for you to be a part of our launch team. To join the fun, please send me a note through the contact page with the subject "Launch Team", and I'll get all the information to you about the BIG day!
Thank you for being a part of the dream. Jenni and I look forward to doing life with you through this book! Stay tuned for the official release date, where to purchase, a cinematic trailer, giveaways and more!
