Introducing our Children’s Book! It’s GO TIME!
It’s time to share something very exciting and very special to my heart! You might already know this, but I created a children’s book! It feels truly miraculous to be at this point. All of the steps involved in this, have stretched me further than I knew was possible.
The idea to write a children’s book has been on my heart for years now. Time went by as it seems to do, and my ideas just sat in my notebook. Then around this time last year, Mac was really struggling and suffering. The side effects of chemo were just more than his body could bear. I didn’t know how much longer we would have with him. I knew I wanted Mac to be a big part of creating this book and I knew I wouldn’t be able to pursue it without him.
We got to work and This Is Hard But You Can Do It was born. It is a story of a boy named Mac who is nervous for a big day coming up. Throughout the book Mac learns a positive way to face his big day with a courageous, new perspective. It lends hope, courage, strength and confidence that no matter what lies ahead, YOU CAN DO IT! This inspirational book shares the phrases that have sustained our family during such hard times. My goal as a mother and in writing this book, was to provide a fun and uplifting resource to encourage kids that they are loved and capable of so much more than they think.
In order to self-publish and print the book, I decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign! This provides a way for people to pre-order the book and other incredible rewards and then I will be able to place the book order! Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal! If we don’t reach our goal of $6300 in the 30 day time period, none of the project will be funded and no orders will go through. I am hoping you will accept my invitation to be part of my “launch team” and we can start off the campaign with a bang! I plan to launch the campaign tomorrow (Monday April 13th).
I know all of us have our own networks of people and I’m hoping that you will be willing to share this with yours. If there are people that you know or have a connection with in media, such as tv, radio, newspaper etc. or on social media, that you or I could reach out to, we would love to! This book has a message that people need to hear right now. It is the perfect resource to bring peace and hope during uncertain times. This book is great for families, classrooms, doctor or dental offices, and especially great for people doing hard things! Honestly, the messages in this book apply to people young and old, and hard things, big and small. The words I share in this book, kept our family grounded when the world was spinning around us and I know it will do that for others too.
I couldn’t be more excited to finally share this book with you and the rest of the world! We love every single person on Team Mac. Your continued prayers, love and support means everything to us. You have lifted us up and it has allowed me to be the mother I am. Lots of you have kept me going on this long road of making this book. Thank you! I wouldn’t be here without you! I know a lot of you have been able to draw strength from Mac and the way he faces hard days. I hope that you will find a reward or rewards that you would love. We would be so grateful for your support in our special project and ultimately I hope it’s something that will bless you and be a family treasure!
Here is a preview of the campaign that will launch TOMORROW!!!
