Time to Share a Secret!

So I have to tell you a secret. And it’s a big one. One I’ve been too scared to tell you for months! ⠀

@therefinedwoman is launching a podcast interview with me tomorrow morning, and I thought it was launching in a few months (Kat, the host, moved it up in the line up because we had so much fun during our hour together!).⠀

This normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but during that podcast, I divulge a huge secret…and I actually kind of brush over it ha!⠀

I wanted you to hear it from me first so you’re not left wondering what in the hockey sticks, Em?! ⠀

Let me take you back about 6 months ago. I had been in a Eucalyptus steam room alone with two of my besties for about 20 minutes, on a 2 day staycation that we all 3 desperately needed. ⠀

We had each taken turns that day telling all our mess, and these 2 girls already knew mine in detail. ⠀

As I recounted the difficult events of the last 2 years that only my closest circle knows, and shared where my heart was, I told them something new:⠀

‘Y’all, I told my therapist a few months ago that I felt God was calling me to write a book, but I’m not sure anyone would read it.’⠀

A few seconds later, the steam stopped and the Eucalyptus started to thin. And through the fog, we realized that we weren’t alone after all. ⠀

An older woman stood up and silently wrapped her towel around her and we obviously all sat there shocked and silent as well. As she took a few steps towards the door, she looked back over her shoulder before she opened the door and confidently said ‘I would definitely read that book.’⠀

It’s 6 months later, and I’ve said an official yes to writing that book. I have the best team surrounding me and I can’t wait to welcome you to the behind the scenes of this crazy process.⠀

A yet to be named book will hit bookshelves in 2020. I’m writing this for you, friend. Because when the battle comes — which it will — I want you to be ready. Ready to persevere with faith + joy, and hell bent on living a meaningful life.⠀

Here we go…
