Some of you have been following my writerly dream for a long time. Some of you are just now introduced to me (hi, I’m Amy, nice to meet you lovelies).
- There was the time I finally admitted to the Facebook world that I want to be an author, and then shortly after that I got a blog and told you all why I want to write.
- There was the time I asked if you should quit your job, and then more recently I quit mine.
- There was the time I had to step back from writing to work on living, and I wrote a number of posts on relationships of course.
- I had to say no to alot of things and find the right things to say yes to. I’m still learning that, and you probably are too.
All that to say, it’s been a journey. One that obviously isn’t done, because I don’t have a novel out yet. But I *am* now published. You heard that right! I had my first paid gig, that is to say, my dayjob paid me to write an article. It’s a step in the journey I am thrilled to have taken.
If you’re interested, go check out my article on Hope for Orphans. Orphan ministry isn’t just adoption, in fact, most orphans are not adoptable. And it’s so cool to see all the ways we can help! While you’re at it, see why the founders of Hope for Orphans are members of Samaritan Ministries (my dayjob). Health care doesn’t have to be impersonal.
Now excuse me while I do a happy dance for being published and paid for writing 😉
