Author Paula Moldenhauer is my guest today, sharing about the “Christmas miracle” release of her devotional book, Soul Scents: Awaken, the first in a four-part series.
Her book is free today on Amazon for Kindle and would make a lovely Christmas gift for someone looking to start the New Year on the right foot. A print version is expected to be available by Christmas.
In Paula’s words:
The fact is this book feels foundational to everything I want to share with the world. Birthed over more than a ten-year span, it shares insights the Lord gave as He freed me from a performance-based religion and deepened my understanding of the wonder of a genuine relationship with Him.
His love is deeper than I dared dream, and He desires that we walk in joy and freedom, not striving, tension, and self-deprecation. I know I will write more non-fiction books in the future which delve deeper into these concepts, but this series chronicles the incremental journey, the discovery, of the best part of my life—and what I believe Jesus offers all of us as the best part of any life.
Publishing is a very long process. Though the content of this book was written over a span of more than ten years, its birth from editing to publication happened in less than a month [Paula’s Christmas miracle!]. This is very unusual. I’ve published both traditionally and non-traditionally in the past and had good results with both, but this particular series is quite intimate, and I decided long ago I wanted to oversee the whole process myself. Originally I wanted it to release for 2016, but it looked impossible. Then in a 48-hour span God changed everything. And here we are today.
… and Paula is right.
God is still changing things. He’s still in the Christmas-miracle business.
May your Christmas this year be a clear reminder that His love is deeper, wider, longer, and bigger than anything that comes your way.
Have a Merry Blessed Christmas.
