The Kissing Spot

For over 13 years I have been writing a book about my daughter . . .And God Named her Hope. This summer with Hope's help I finally completed it. We sent it to an editor who suggested the title The Kissing Spot after she read through the manuscript. I let Hope make the final choice in the title and "The Kissing Spot" it is!

Yesterday, I received a letter of Congratulations that my manuscript proposal has been reviewed and chosen to be sent out to 85 Christian Royalty Publishers. Earlier this week as I waited to hear Hope said, "Mom you just need to be confident." Reminding me, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:6). So now I wait to hear from a publisher! I will take Hope's advice she has no doubts. Faith of a child.

A short synapse of the book for the back cover may be something like this:

Does God really turn around for good what Satan means for harm? Absolutely. And He is always with us, even in the womb. During one attempted abortion God intervened to protect the life of a very special little girl and is using her today to share the incredible love of Jesus with anyone who will listen. The Kissing Spot, the story of Hope Hoffman's amazing survival, is an unforgettable one that will touch your heart-proving once again the power of God who can take a tragic and heartbreaking situation and redeem it for His glory. If you need proof that miracles still happen, this is it!

I hope you will walk along side me as I continue to wait on the Lord.

My first blog ever!! Thanks for taking the time to read it.
