Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act. -Psalm 37:4-5
I have some wonderful news I would like to share with all of you! For years, I have been working on writing a book about my life. Within the last two years, I finally got serious about it, and I’m happy to say…it is now available on Amazon!
As most of you know, my dad was a Baptist preacher…hence making me a PK, also known as a preacher’s kid. The life of a preacher’s kid is not an easy one at times as we are always to be the ‘Example’ to all the other kids around us. If you are not the rebellious type…it’s not hard; but if you have a rebellious bone in your body -growing up a preacher’s kid is tough. I think all my bones were rebellious!
My point is this…after I committed my life to the Lord, I began to see His purpose for me. I have always loved to write things, and that is how the book came to be. God KNOWS the desires of your heart, and if you wish to use them to “please Him”, and help others in the process, He will bring those desires to fruition! In passing conversation, folks would hear some events of my life and say, “You should really write a book about that!” So…I finally did it!
As you read it, I pray it will help you on your journey through this thing we call life. We have all had some rough patches…but Jesus can help us get through them!
The title of the book is:
FINDING ALL THE PIECES…The Life and Struggles of a Preacher’s Daughter. It is written under my pen name: Lila Burns.
Hope you’ll check it out! It’s available on Amazon in paperback and also on Kindle.
For those of you that encouraged me and prayed for me during the writing of this book, I want to give you my heart-felt thanks! I never could have finished it without all of you! Thanks again!
